whopping big discount
on the rental fees from the school. Unless it was in the contract that
they could cancel without warning, I'd expect a reduction.>>>

Feast stewards (and Event Stewards) should read the site contracts  
with care before anything is signed.

Several years ago we were a week or two from our annual Yule Revel  
and the church we had contracted with, cancelled our reservation.   
You try finding an alternate, inside location with only a week or two  
to go in DECEMBER in a metropolitan area!  We usually sign up for and  
usually put down non-refundable reservation money six months or more  
in advance for that event.

And legally there wasn't anything we could do about it. There was a  
clause in the contract that allowed the church to cancel any event at  
any time at their whim for their own use.  Perhaps needless to say,  
we have never used that site for any event since then. Luckily  
someone in the barony was able to get us space at their church. I  
don't think we had to reschedule the event, although I don't remember  
for sure.
