The easiest way to do what you want would be to create a "big event" system (essentially a duplicate system, with the same CC/frequencies) that contains only the TGIDs that you want in your "big event" / "favorites" list.

To access only that system without having to to disable any other quick keys; There are two ways to do it.
1) Use the "system hold" feature to temporarily 'lock' the scanner onto that system.
2) Use the startup key feature to enable only that system by default when you turn the scanner on.
