If you follow the rules that are established for participation at an SCA
event, and, the few additional ones that are Pennsic specific (i.e. no
fireworks, be quiet in certain areas at certain times, etc.) you will ask
yourself what the hell all these people were panicking about.  It is loads
of fun, a little hot, but still a blast.
