Lord Rabah does an excellent job exercising his responsibilities.

It is not, however, his responsibility to get the Northern seneschals to 
work together to iron out a calendar of events which covers every 
weekend, has a wide variety of events which do not need to be all things 
for all people, but still allows every group to have a reasonable share 
of events.

The Northern Seneschals (all seneschals, for that matter) decide what 
events will be held.  They can, if they wish (and they haven't all always 
wished to) work together to exercise that authority in harmony, to create 
one master calendar, with a set round of tourney's, round of dance 
events, round of great feasts, and cover a variety of speciality events 
(like collegiums) and coordinate on bidding on kingdom level events.

And, since this is their power, they can, theorectically, assign one 
individual to maintain and coordinate the calendar.  Such a person would 
of course, work with the Kingdom Chronicler, but he/she would exercise 
the delegated powers of the local seneschals.

And that, bluntly put, is what I am suggesting.

Would it require changes to the rules?  Useful, but not necessary.
