Gifts and Weapons
« on: July 29, 2016, 12:11:41 PM »
Hi All!

For those of you returning Gaters, you know me well, but for you newbies, I'm Jane/General Peanut, Gatecon staffer and head of Guest Services & Security for the past 200+ years! :-)

I want to share with you a few things about Gifts for ANY of our guests, and about Weapons, as there are rules we all have to follow as guests of the hotel, as well as the laws of Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, and our almighty insurance company! :-) Most of you already know these, as they are not at all unusual, and are really common sense ideas!


If you are bringing a gift for a guest you must present it, unwrapped in a gift bag, to a member of the crew or security team who will deliver it to the guest for you. Please use a gift bag, put a note on it to show who it is for, and your name as the giver of said gift.  No wrapped or unchecked presents may be presented direct to our guests. Please DO NOT give food - either packaged or home-made. While we don't think anyone would attempt anything, we are not willing to take that chance, so food items will NOT be given to the intended recipient.


Any weapon, real or not, that contains a blade is NOT permitted in any convention area. Real weapons or replicas of real weapons are not permitted in any area. Replicas of other weapons used in the Stargate franchise may be allowed for costume purposes provided they have first been cleared with our security staff. Failure to do this may result in the item/s being confiscated and made available for collection at the end of the convention. If you have a weapon as part of your costume, please have someone contact me or my 2IC, Jay Grey, so we can inspect the weapon and clear it. Weapons of any type that have not been cleared by one of us, will be confiscated and not returned until the end of the convention.

Simple, right? We appreciate your help in making this a fun, happy and safe convention for one and all!

Can't wait to see you all!

Jane/General Peanut
Gatecon Staff
Guest Services/Security

Clear it with convention security staff and you should be good.  That is - find Jane or Jay and check with them.  They'll probably be around registration in the early mornings and wandering about.
