It should be open to all within the nation, but closed to "foriegners" except for specificly invited groups or individuals. This would be decided upon by the bugger who puts all the effort into organising it (hence some credos and reason for being willing)

Yeah, seems a silly requirement.

Schola Irregular will be hosted on the 23rd fo Feb in the middle of London.
It starts at 3pm, ends at 6pm, and the one hit inter Chapter competition crammed into a 8x9 metre square will result in Pub Grub, Lager and hopefully drunkeness.
It is hoped that regardless of the outcome, the event will result in a seething grudge match to be repeated within 4-8 weeks, over an over, forever.
Cost: 5 pounds
Min turnout: 10
Max turnout: 20

You're welcome to attend, if you so wish.

By golly, there's only one solution to your quandry then!

For example the local fencing club has an event once a year where they hire an entire sports hall and get a collective of groups within a 50 mile radius and anyone else who wants to attend.
This means that you can cram in a whole day of swordy stuff with lots of different people, and people can drive up in the morning and leave same day unless they choose otherwise. I would personally be quite happy to say travel upto 120 miles several times a year for one day events, its simple, easy and cheap with relatively little commitment. The only downside to this of course is that it doesnt allow for serious drinking afterwards within those limits, but considering all of the other big events we have in the year I don't see this as a problem.
This could then be easily achieved by groups around the country with access to large training spaces putting on these sorts of events, its cheap and simple to organise and relatively stress free for the organisers.

I do that every year at morris dancing events.
Scout halls work too. Last year I organised one for about £3-4 per head per night - that was a posh one, with working showers and everything.
