Safety Issues.

Greetings to all. A quick note to everyone that will be attending Decepti-Kon. Safety is something that we take very seriously. We want everyone to have a great time but at the same time, there is no room for any type of misconduct that would put another person in danger. That is why for anyone attending Decepti-Kon, there will be a weapons policy that Zero Steel weapons of any kind will be accepted during the show. Any attendees that purchase from a vendor must immediately place the product in their respective vehicles or hotel room and keep it there til the end of the show. Any person that violates this policy will be immediately escorted from the convention and banned from returning. All fees will be subject to a non-refund for this violation. Additionally, weapons that appear to be of realistic pistol or machine gun like will be required to be unloaded at all times. Any person in violation of this will also be escorted from the convention, banned from the premises and subject to a non-refund as well. We here at Decepti-Kon want nothing more than for everyone to enjoy themselves and create wonderful memories in a safe and secure environment. With that said, here's to everyone having a great and safe time at Decepti-Kon!!!
