Carrying and wearing of weapons of any kind will not be permitted, except as part of cosplaying in a hall costume if peace-bonded by our Rangers Director. No real or realistic looking firearms are allowed and all bladed weapons must be sheathed.
Any weapons purchased in the Vendor Hall must be securely wrapped before they are taken out of the room.
The committee realizes that most people who would like to carry and wear weapons are sensible and careful individuals. However, because of the present liability laws, the risk of weapons causing accident or distress, and in observance of the hotel’s weapons policy, we have no choice but to comply. The safety of convention members is our overriding consideration, as well as cooperating fully with the hotel’s security personnel.
