According to the rules, no maidens at an event. What I often see is maidens done very early before the event hours begin, or after hours. The actual rule in the safety code is

3. Model aircraft will not be flown in AMA sanctioned events, air shows or model demonstrations unless:
(a) The aircraft, control system and pilot skills have successfully demonstrated all maneuvers intended or anticipated prior to the specific event.
(b) An inexperienced pilot is assisted by an experienced pilot.
As for waiver flights I see nothing preventing it.
