not bad for ideas pooling - for authenticity side of things again good starting point but don't rely on it too much . has a good structure giving you menus, songs (with sheet music) games and costumes (with patterns)
quite heavily focused on weddings but can be adapted. would say it would be useful for those organising a village fete type event. or a good start for someone who wants to do more but has never arranged anything like that before.

If it's the one I'm thinking of it was written by Mark Donnelly as a way to pay his way through university in the US as a youth- he nevers disowns any of the books he writes but this is one he doesn't mention too often on his CV (he now writes Discovery Channel doccos)
Very SCA inspired and targetted towards them too.
