You have encountered one of the standard SCA errors. "Remove" is a 
post-period term for a subcourse--a dish in a course removed before the 
rest of the course, or the dish that replaces it. Someone in the SCA at 
some time in the past mistakenly thought it was a period term for 
course, and since people in the SCA like to show off how knowledgeable 
they are and are often not very careful about making sure that what they 
know is true, the idea spread.

"Course" is indeed the period English term.
