Please check this page for changes to posted rules prior to attending convention.
Entry onto the grounds and/or receipt of convention badge constitutes an acknowledgement of the following rules and willingness to abide by them.
Badges: Yes, you need your badge. This lets people who don't know you see that you're supposed to be there. Badge Purchase is final and no reimbursements will be made for non-attendance after the convention has started. If you lose of your badge full price for the remainder of the weekend is required for a new badge. If we find a missing badge in use by another attendee we may, dependent upon circumstances, remove one or both attendees. Reimbursements for paid events may be made only if the event is cancelled on a case by case basis.
No real weapons will be allowed on the event grounds except as allowed for by management.
If you have any special needs regarding this rule contact management prior to the event.
This includes not allowing "Peace Bonded" weapons for costumes etc.
Event Content: Events will not contain real direct violent contact in any form for
GoWC 2009. Next year may be different based on location and listed events.
Interpersonal violence, real or threatened will be grounds for ejection and barring without
any reimbursement from the event.
Personal Conduct: If your conduct is otherwise unduly disturbing to other attendees
management reserves the right to revoke your attendance privileges and remove you directly
and immediately from the premises by any means necessary. Subsequent to being ejected you
may also be barred from returning to the event. No reimbursements whatsoever will be given
for anyone ejected from the event.
Insurance and Other Liability Issues: PCP and Lakeside Lutheran assume no responsibility
for any form of injury or monetary/personal loss etc incurred through attendance. You assume
