Weapons and Props Permitted
METAL OR LIVE STEEL is Permitted on the premises. Live Steel is defined as Swords, Knives, Bat'leth and various Klingon Weaponry, Bayonets, Cane-Swords, and/or other Objects made of Metal, which can take an edge. This holds true, regardless of whether the Object is actually sharp. This includes Star Knives/Shurikens.
Real Swords will also be allowed on Stage, for the Masquerade/Cosplay Contests, but they are not to be swung.
Misuse of any Weapon, such as swinging it in a Public Area, or causing Hazards to Passerby, will get your Privilege revoked immediately.
If we deem a Weapon to be unsafe for the Expo, we will ask you to Store the unsafe Weapon in your Private Quarters (i.e.: your Tent or Car). If there is a repeat Offense, we will Escort you out of the Expo, and off of the grounds, so that you can place the Weapon in your Private Quarters; if the Weapon is illegal, we will turn it in to the appropriate Authorities.
Any unsafe Weapon purchased from a Dealer that is boxed, should remain boxed, and stored in your Private Quarters. Unsafe Weapons are not to be taken out of their packaging or wrappings, while at the Expo: After purchasing an Unsafe Weapon that normally violates our Weapons policy, it must remain in its packaging, and be taken immediately to your Tent or Car for storage.
All questionable items will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Anything deemed illegal, outside the Expo is deemed illegal inside the Expo premises. All Summit Staff Decisions on Weapons are Final.
