all you need is 5 paid members to start a household
Tiberius, I think you may be confused between a local group (which is what
requires the 5 paid members) and a household, which is an unofficial group who
happens to like to do stuff together. Households can be based in a local area
or not; my own household has most of it's members in the
Pennsylvania/Delaware/New York/New Jersey area, but we have members who live as far afield as
Australia and Europe.
Since households are entirely unofficial as far as the SCA, Inc is concerned
(they can't hold SCA money, they can't hold events under their own
sponsorship, they don't have to report anything to anybody outside the household), there
are no official rules for starting them. Anyone can start one and it can be
organized along any lines you like.
