[SCA-AE] Limiting Groups to Three Events per Year?

The one thing I didn't put  into the draft pick suggestion (thank you 
for the reminder) is that rotating kingdom events would not count 
against the draft. (An added incentive for the larger groups that have 
sufficient peoplepower available to bid on kingdom events if they want 
to add above quota.
If you had been involved in some of the event scheduling discussions I 
have been in on lately, first trying to schedule a metals symposium as a 
stand-alone event (IMPOSSIBLE with the current level of calendar clutter 
and the fact that some events are already being scheduled over a year 
out) and then trying to find events that would be willing to be host 
events for a metal symposium, you would see that there are not enough 
weekends in the year that are not already either taken, or reserved for 
Kingdom events.
The advantage of a draft system, as I stated earlier, would be that 
every group would be able to schedule something before some of the more 
active groups had the calendar filled.

in service,

Without craftsmanship there is no art, only a sad suggestion of what
could have been.
