This raises an interesting question.  Is it 'un'-period to fence in doors for 
the amusment of the crown?  I don't have books on hand to research this 
question and a quik web search hasn't really answered my question. 

How much work would it take to make the inside of the civic center 'look' more 

If we did fence outside like normal, would it help to have an airconditioned 
pavilian for fighters to retreat to to cool off in between bouts?

(who will miss this Queen's, much to my dismay due to family obligations)
