My gut says April would be a better move. Because of cooler weather  
and the fact that we would not be the weekend before crown.
1. If it is hot we will only get hard core fighters. And less of the  
general populace ( artisons and rapier fighters)

2. If crown is quite a distance it will draw more of peoples' money  
which would cause a reduction in attendance. Larger groups and more  
popular event would not feel this effect as much. We have a small  
group with an unproven event.
