I think you got Margaret's example wrong. Schools, esp public schools in urban areas, often do require that anyone not ordinarily expected to be present must show a driver's license to gain entrance. (students, teachers, staff are the only ones ordinarily expected & they have school id's that they can be required to present) I've had to do this countless times when I was working as a salesman. Children not enrolled in the school are generally not welcome in the classes at the school. This is not depriving anyone of a constitutional or legal right.
And, as Pennsic is, on its face, a private activity, then no one is "entitled" to attend classes there, just as no one is entitled to attend classes at a private school.
That being said, the notion of "carding" people attending one of my classes is reprehensible and, so long as this rule remains in effect, I won't be teaching at Pennsic.
