One possibility would be to try to get the group to sponser a kingdom-level
event--I know the seneschal is frequently looking for bids for Crown,
Queen's Champion, Coronation, etc. This would pretty much ensure that
there's a lot of exposure of that group to "kingdom level culture" and how
things are really done.
If the isolationists still insist on playing things their way, and if
they're in the majority for that group, then there's not much the other
folks can do, except spend most of their time at out of town events. (On
the bright side, if all they're doing is "playing SCA in their living
room," it's unlikely that they are going to ever be noticed by the rest of
the kingdom--no AoAs, Thistles, or higher awards.
