There is never any time where I "have to" be at a school or sporting  
event on Shabbat. On Sabbaths, I am at home, at the homes of friends,  
or at synagogue -- all within walking distance of my home. If I'm at  
an SCA event, I'm not at a sporting event (list field), I'm at my home- 
away-from-home (tent), or at least within walking distance thereof.  
Wherever I am when the sun sets is my home for the duration of Shabbat.

In the occasions in which I am away from home for Shabbat, I bring  
standard foods that I can have any old time I want. In the SCA, I  
don't want to do just the standard old thing!
