I just came across that. I think it falls under this exception--
The October 2007 Kingdom Exchequer Handbook 
Page 32
8. Any policies regarding event admission charges or complimentary passes
If there are any special customs regarding who is not charged admission 
to events, they should be included here. It is important that any 
entries under this category have to be class-based, small countable 
groups, and self-selecting (a person can choose to meet the requirements 
and be included in the group), but not person-based. Examples are: the 
Royal family, the autocrat, the head cook, the gate staff, the branch 
officers, etc. Not allowed would be: the autocrat‘s household, the local 
branch, all non-members, a list of the seneschal‘s friends, etc. 
Agreeing on who is included and how they are determined for each event 
in advance of the event will always prevent problems on the day of the 

Did that fall under a special custom?

No Royalty, it was our Baron and his guests.  How does this fit into this policy?   I understand that it is customary to comp royalty who have traveled to be there, but why would the whole head table comped?
