I will second this, and add that caution with poisonous snakes is always a
Good Thing (tm), especially since so many SCA events are held in outdoor
areas.  Granted, most self-respecting rattlesnakes get the heck out of
human-invaded areas, but there is always the possiblity that someday
someone is going to come  close to stepping on one.  I would also like to
remind folks that there are a lot of copperhead snakes in the Mid-Atlantic,
and they blend very nicely into leaf piles.  Water moccasins, or
cottonmouths are mean and will chase humans.  I know, I was chased by one
many years ago.  Also nearly stepped on a rattlesnake once, even more years
ago.  Scared the *&^% out of me.  Friendly reminders of such things are not
uncalled for.
