I am an Ugly An Tirian by way of ten years of ambassadorial exile in Caid.
  So yeah, I ain't from around here. Take what I say with a large Siberian Salt Mine attached.
  You're dead on about promoting rather than advertising, too.
  So, what DOES the deputy MoAs do bardic DO?

With a hugely important difference: Crown and Queen's always occur, 
every reign, per Kingdom Law.[1] And there's no question whether the 
Crown "buys into" those events.

In the past 15 years, how often have we had an Eisteddfod? Have we 
had "skip a year"s? What about in the previous 10 years (the "golden 
age" described by Robin)?

What about Kingdom A&S, King's Lancer, Royal Huntsman, or any of the 
other recurring[2] Kingdom championship tournaments? In each case, 
who is the driving force that "makes" those events happen?

I believe that the hosting group would be responsible for advertising 
the event -- just as the hosting group currently advertises Crown, 
for example. *Promoting*, on the other hand...
