The Maryland Ren Faire is similar to other fairs of its nature around the
country.  It is a commercial venture that the SCA has nothing to do with,
other than some of its local members providing some entertainment, services,
etc...but not as representatives of the SCA.  I'm not sure how he came to be
at this faire, but it is one of the larger fairs of its sort, so that may
have had something to do with it.
