Bug Description

Not always the organizer of the event is the LoCo team, sometimes the LoCo team is just takling part in that event, for that reason i believe the word "organizer" should be replaced with something more clear for that.

Instead of changing organizer, why can we not add in some sort of participants field, where the Florida team organizes and the Georgia team participates. IIRC it is not yet possible to have multiple teams a part of the same event, so this could be a wishlist item to be added with that functionality.

Having multiple teams on the same event is already possible, we just haven't provided an interface to do that yet.

But that's not the reason for the wording change. The concern is that a loco may be participating in a larger event (Think SELF, or FLS) where they are not the "organizers" of the event itself. The wording change should make it clear that a loco team is responsible only for organizing the team's activities within the event, and not necessarily the entirety of the event itself.

IMO there should be a way to specify an organizer, be it a team or even a person/people. That way users know who to contact with questions.
