I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.  Nor am I a bartender.
I'm not a member of the BoD either.  I wonder if I can find any other 
disclaimers to cover myself... hmm...  

Various states in the US have adoped laws which make the server of 
the alcohol liable if an accident occurs later.  So if an SCA group
purchases alcohol, and someone acts irresponsibly... not only
is the person liable, but the SCA group as well.
