Show-off sessions at the driving range, rounds with like-minded golfers, and some scrambles.

I think the answer is none unless you confirm with the organizing pro or club.

While we're on topic, what exactly are the events--if any--where a foot wedge is allowed for use?

I wouldn’t want a non conforming club or ball played in the skin game I play in or any tournament I play in where money or merchandise is involved.If someone just wants a round of golf with nothing involved then just play it and enjoy the game.
The bad thing about playing something that is non conforming is that where would it end on clubs and balls.
I don’t think no one would check in a local tournament but you have to live with yourself If something is deemed non conforming and it may not even benefit the person playing it.

Good rule of thumb... If the event allows for things like "string", "mulligans", "throws", "foot wedges", etc it is not conforming to the rules of golfs therefore any rule that governs on equipment do not apply.
~ Typical in 4-person scramble charity events where they sell additional things like "mulligans", "throws" or "string".

If you want to win one of those charity events use the best wood in the bag... the pencil :cheesy:

When you mention non-conforming drivers, what did you have in mind?  Face shaving?

If the driver was never legal to begin with then there probably aren't too many events where it would be permissible to put it in play.
Driver:  Ping G30 9*
3 Wood:  Ping G30 14.5*
Hybrid 2:  Cleveland Classic 18*
Hybrid 4:  Cleveland Classic 23*

Wedges: TMag Speedblade 50* and TMag Tour Preferred ATV 54* / 58*
