We used the "six months to find a shovel" method of dealing with that.
Although our policy is pretty nice as it is: Comped for feast & site are the
Royals + one retainer, the current B&B, and the Autocrat & Cook.

We don't argue if any of them want to pay, but they have the option not to.
Often, one or more will 'pay', not for their spot, but as a donation for
someone else.
