obviously, sometimes for not-so-new people. They may be traditional, but
unfortunately, it obviously doesn't mean they are easy to understand.
If you know that 'board' means food, on- and off- board makes sense.
Outboard sounds like a motor. (I personally hate the term 'outboard',
also, just because it's ugly.) I dislike the idea that when there is no
extra space in the feasthall, we would be selling on-board and out-board!
It's also problematic when you are charging people extra money to be able
to sit in the feast hall, to be using confusing terminology.
Maybe we should, as a new person suggested several months ago on the EK
list, just use English:
Site fee (includes dayboard): $/person
Feast fee: $/person
For an additional fee of $/person table space in the feasthall will be
available for those not eating the feast.
