I dunno, if they are doing so where they are distracting from the
enjoyment of the rest of the event attendees (like out on the main
road, raising their coconut daquiries to passers-by with the inance
grin that I imagine would come naturally to these sort of folks), then
yeah, I think that is *exactly* the sort of thing that needs to be
addressed, and if they won't comply with the (really, really very easy
to comply with, honestly) ground rules, then they are being rude and
discourteous at the least.  They know just as well as anyone else that
"sitting under beach umbrellas and wearing aloha-print t-tunics" isn't
what the SCA is about...

probably more anal than is healthy
