XF 1.3 Disable new discussion but allow posting to current

Is there a way to disable non-admins from posting new discussions but allow anyone to add a post to a current one?

For example, I have an Events section that I only want the admins to add official events to but I want everyone to be able to comment on the events that are placed in there.

When I uncheck "Allow new messages to be posted in this forum" it disables people from creating new discussions but it also keeps them from replying to current discussions. I want to all them to keep replying, just not create a new one.
It looks like if I do that it will effect all areas and I want have it in just one. That's if I go to User -> Group Permissions. Am I wrong?

Sorry yes, I meant the node permissions for the user groups.

Revoke the permission for the Registered group, allow it for the Administrative group.
