As there has been some recent controversy regarding weapons and what a weapon is please note that Convention Policy (animaritime.org/policies) states that:
No real weapons will be permitted at Animaritime. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Handguns, shotguns, rifles, and other real guns.
- BB guns, paint ball guns, high powered water guns, etc.
- Bladed weapons such as swords, knives, switchblades, etc.
- Nunchucks, Tonfas, and other restricted Martial Art weapons.
- Law enforcement weapons such as mace, tazers, and batons.
- Any other weapon that is prohibited by applicable Canadian Laws.
Bows and crossbows are permitted, however any projectile designed to be shot from a bow or crossbow, such as arrows, bolts, etc. are prohibited.
Just remember if you are unsure of what is allowed (see list first) please contact the Head of Security at firstname.lastname@example.org with a detailed description of the item AND a picture (you will need both).
