A. c. mokasen = Northern Copperhead = illegal up here. A. c. contortrix is the nominate subspecies: the Southern Copperhead which, yes, I am sure plenty have been sold in the 23 years of the Hamburg show...as well as the other three (3) subspecies (five (5) total: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agkistrodon_contortrix#Subspecies), and these four (4) nonnative subspecies should all continue to be legally sold.

Admittedly, this was my first time attending the show, but I knew a lot about it from obsessing wanting to attend it for so many years. Aside from--paraphrased from the previously-mentioned vendor-friend I know well, but also my own belief--WC being one of the drawbacks to the show...well, from standing in line at 08:15 till leaving at 15:00, having made five (5) complete rounds and several revisits, I LOVE this show!!

I wish I could make the the show on the 19th, but again: We're moving down on the 18th and need to settle in, and Johnstown is ~7 hours round-trip from Hamburg...We will have driven ~8 hours the previous day. :P But We may attend the Pittsburgh show on the 20th (= ~3 hours round-trip), definitely on 11/10, and the Hamburg shows on 12/7 and the 2/22/14 - Denise Readinger says the February show is the big one: shoulder-to-shoulder, great selection, and good sales (-unlike the August 3rd show which I overheard many vendors say they weren't doing good). We're ecstatic!
