      A few more items--
      Recent events without feasts: Fall RUM, Festival of Maidens

      Upcoming events without feasts: Border Skirmish, Chaos Caravan, This Land Is Our Land

      However, I very much hope I'm wrong and you're right. This is a trend that I hope does not develop. I like potlucks a lot--I just prefer feasts when I am at an event.

      My one request for those doing potluck or grill-type feasts is that you offer some way for those who don't cook to bring things. I know people who will avoid potlucks altogether because they don't cook.

For some of us, having a feast is what makes an event special and often strongly influences our decision to attend. As a lover and cook of historical foods, I love the opportunity to try new dishes. I especially love that I can do that in a room full of all my friends, with entertainment, fanfare and ceremony. Feast is an experience, not a meal. Why is the trend for that experience to be removed from events? Without that, we might as well run out to a restaurant.
