All weapons of any kind will be checked in with the committee at the Registration desk as soon as possible following hotel check-in. There are no exceptions to the “check weapons in with us” policy. Permission to wear or carry any weapons is conditional on the approval of the Tri-Chair, in conjunction with Committee, to whom all weapons should be brought. The Committee will examine all weapons brought to their attention. Weapons will be kept by the Committee in a designated area until required for the Maskerade or photo shoot. Weapons which have not been checked should not be brought into the hotel or common areas.
Determination of what constitutes a weapon is at the sole discretion of the Tri-Chair and Committee. People who disregard the weapons policy may have their Con membership revoked and be asked to leave the Convention.
Anyone who has ever witnessed a drunk person in costume happen upon a sword will appreciate why this policy is a good idea. Please help us help you to have a happy and safe Convention.
