May I remind you of one thing in regard to the membership requirement to 
fight.  That is it only applies to "official" tournaments held within the 
authority of the SCA.  Your local fighter practice (canton level, 
baronial level or Tadhg level) are not affected!  Train them as you see 
fit at these times.  Doing pick-up fights after the schedueled tournament 
at an event are also viable options.  I do agree with you that it is a 
real pain to train a fighter, watch him/her improve, take them to an 
event and say "well now you can watch the fighting and maybe afterwards, 
if anyone has anything left in 'em, you can try someone different".  It 
is very iritating.  I deal with it all the time with My weekly practice 
here.  Currently I am training five non-members and hope to get them paid 
and authorized before Pennsic.  My advice to you is to keep training and 
teaching, enjoy doing it, and wait to see what happens with the 
pay-to-play.  Until then keep copies of the membership form around!
