Okay, how about "The point of Pennsic is to have a really good time
with a really big group of people while operating under the rules of
the Society for Creative Anachronism?"

I beg to disagree.  To apply that analogy both ways, it makes it sound
like you feel that if people are wearing the wrong shade of red they
will be ejected from Pennsic (which I don't see as the case at all).  I
think the analogy more appropriate here is that if you want to drive a
car on the road, it must meet the legal minimum standards for being out
on the road.  If you want to attend any SCA event, you have to meet the
legal SCA minimum standards to be at the event.

<chuckle>  Actually, I believe it is (although not in the milk
chocolate form we find so rewarding today)...
