Today, whose "baby" is Crown? Queen's? Kingdom A&S? Royal Huntsman?

The first two events *will* occur. The Kingdom Seneschal beats the  
bushes for bids for these events. Either they or the Crown chooses  
from among the bids to decide the hosting group. The Crown decides  
the format of the lists. Clearly, those events are the Crown's  
"baby", with logistical help from the Kingdom Seneschal.

Maybe there are useful parallels that could be drawn with Kingdom  
Bard, but I don't see any. So...

What about Kingdom A&S? Royal Huntsman? Whose "baby" are they? (I  
bring them up because I hope there will be aspects of them that will  
inform our discussion regarding Kingdom Bard.)
