Weapons Policy

ValleyCon's definition of a weapon is anything that is actually a weapon, facsimile of an actual weapon, or anuthing that is used as a weapon.
All weapons must be carried in a sheath, sling, or container at all times. They must also be peacebonded.
NO projectile weapons are allowed. A projectile weapon is a device that throws an object or substance, or thrown itself. A loaded squirt gun IS a projectile weapon, an unstrung crossbow without bolts is not.
Above all, think first. If your decorative gear would be unsafe, please do not wear it. Remember those immortal words spoken by mortal mothers everywhere: "you'll put your eye out with that thing!"


We all know that this is a topic that seems to come up every year. ValleyCon permits alcoholic beverages at the convention, and some of the hospitality suites may as well, though we urge you to ask their policy concerning this. There are certain areas of the convention that are owned, and operated by the Mosquito Landing, a legal drinking establishment, therefore NO outside food or beverages will be allowed. The legal drinking age in North Dakota is 21. Neither ValleyCon, the Quality Inn, the Mosquito Landing, nor the Fargo Police Department will tolerate any underage drinking. This will result in revoking of ALL Con privilages, and will mean criminal prosecution. Hospitality suites that serve alcoholic beverages WILL BE REQUIRED to check ID and be responsible for any incidents in their suites. They have the right to refuse serving anyone in their suites.


NO ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES will be allowed AT, or NEAR the convention. Failure to comply will result in dismissal from convention, it's premisis, and notification of local authorities.
