|Rules & Policies|
(Which doesn't include rules of the hotel- break those, and suffer the consequences from the hotel, which could include charges to your card, removal from the hotel, or police involvement. The hotel reserves the right to ask you to leave, as well.)
PortConMaine is a PG-13 event, with events of anime and gaming that are, in nature, appropriate for teens to adults, with suggested parental attendance for those of younger nature. To that end, any child that is 13 years or younger must have an adult in attendance with them.
PortConMaine claims no responsibility for those minors in attendance, and will not act as 'surrogate parent' for the weekend. Staff will monitor the convention for safety, but we can not guarantee to watch specific persons the whole time. This means that if you are under 13 at any point during the convention should staff ask you for your guardian/adult, you must find that adult within 15 minutes, or you will be asked to leave.
We will not allow children 13 and under into the convention without the above mentioned: an accompanying adult.
Events at the convention, ranging from anime showings to roleplaying games, will be 'family friendly,' with the more edgy events offered after dark for family purposes.
No adult material will be shown in any of our viewing rooms. All events will end by midnight. All events will begin no sooner than 9 AM. No food will be provided to attendees.
Drugs, alchohol, and nudity are prohibited from the convention areas, and security staff will be in attendance at all times. Shirts and shoes are required for convention attendance and no real weaponry (or 'live steel') will be allowed in the convention areas. (See cosplay rules for information regarding costumes)
Upon receipt of your badge(s) at the door there will be a sign in with the following requirements for attendance: you are responsible for your self and stuff, keep all your belongings within your personal possession, play nice with others and respect their personal possessions and self, and all state wide rules and regulations hold for the convention (theft will not be tolerated).
You must have your badge on you at all times. Lost or stolen badges will not be replaced. There will be no convention refunds made of badges purchased during the event.
At any point during the convention security or convention staff have the right to revoke membership as needed. Reason may or may not be given, but behavior does play a factor in your attendance to the convention. Remember: play nice and no fighting or malicious behavior will be tolerated.
In closing, please keep in mind your child's maturity, your values and levels of tolerance, and your choices when allowing your son(s) and/or daughter(s) to attend our family event. Thank you!
