Your post essentially raised two issues. I offered suggestions on your first point, but I essentially concurred with you on the second.

I never stated that, and your interpretation is a quantum extrapolation of what was, in fact, stated.
If the same people want to volunteer year-after-year to try to organize a Fest/GTG in their region, then that is their choice. The ideal situation would be, however, that A,B,and C would volunteer to try to put a Fest/GTG in zone 1 in year 07, D,E,and F would volunteer to try to put a Fest/GTG in zone 1 in year, 08, and so on for different regions. Each year the bids are all taken by a certain date, and a decision is made thereafter(however THAT process is run) for that year. Then so on for the following year, etc. etc. That way, there is no gripes about "planning time" being too short.

You may have a point. While not too sure how it would "fit" under 501(c)(3) of the Code, as those types of organizations are typically limited to operate for a religious, charitable, educational, literary, or scientific purpose.

However, personal liability would be a concern for me, and perhaps others as well. I believe you yourself even expressed the same concern while organizing the recent Fest with the "beer event" that some had suggested. And in a "dry" state such as PA ?? Yikes !!
