Alden, the document I'm seeking (that I have a copy of in an early  
draft form) covers all bases. The calendar issues are just a part of  
the planning process.

Kingdom Eisteddfod is already a recurring Kingdom event listed in  
Kingdom Law. Such events are already not charged against a group's  
maximum event limit. So if "Bard and beers" is just an extension of  
Eisteddfod (which is what I understood we were talking about), then  
we're in good shape.

If this is to be a new event, though -- a bardic workshop (not  
Eisteddfod) with a brewing competition? is that what was meant? --  
then, yeah, we'll be starting from scratch.
