  I think this would best be handled in the same manner as Kingdom
events are: take bids from all interested parties, then have some person
(Regional Seneschal?) or group select the 'winning' bid from those
presented. This would give us the benefits of using a system we're
familiar with to select the event plan. The general populace need only
be directly concerned with the appointment of the selector(s), and then
start the prep for the event. 
  Personally, I'd like to see a panel of representatives, with one
selected from each group in the Region, for this task. The panel could
then consider bids for ALL regional events during their tenure (one or
two years) on the panel. That would let every group have input in the
process, and settle the question of just who decides on event bids in
the future.
  Of course, should we ever become a Principality, the panel could be
dissolved, as it's function would become part of the duties of the
Prince and Princess.
