Welcome to the Society of Midnight Explorers!

It might be time for lights out, but that doesn't mean you have to go to sleep! Now that all those pesky little aliens are in bed, it's time to escape the watchful eyes of your counselors. We've raided the kitchens and have more than enough bug juice to go around, so come share a drink with us! We are taking over the 15th and 16th floors of the camp all three nights to evade the counselors. Start planning now how to sneak out of your cabins to join us! Each night, a sign will be posted by the elevators on the 15th and 16th floors. Also, look for each party's own flyers on the 15th and 16th floors and updates in Goat Droppings.

We are carrying on the 'ole Camp Cap tradition this year by giving away awards for the Best Overall Party, Best Thursday Night Party and Most Creative Use of Bug Juice (in a drink). These awards will be selected by Camp Capricon members. A ballot box will be located on the 15th floor each evening during the parties and in Operations during the day. Ballots will be available near the ballot box. Campers can vote at any time, but only one vote per camper will be allowed.

Also returning this year is the Party Staff's Personal Choice award which will be chosen by the founding members of the Society of the Midnight Explorers (aka, your party staff). The award will be given to the party who we think has thrown the best party and was the easiest for us to work with during the entire weekend. This award is completely at the discretion of the party staff.

All awards will be announced at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday afternoon.

We want everyone to have a good time, but still, we must remember the following guidelines:

No Liquor in the Lobby

Please remember that you may not transport any container that obviously contains alcohol through the lobby of the hotel. Any bottles must be in a box. That box cannot have the name of the alcohol on the side of it. Any box or container that obviously contains alcohol WILL BE CONFISCATED BY THE HOTEL. This is hotel policy. Rubbermaid containers are your friend.

Obey the Law:

Things such as underage drinking and/or property damage cause serious problems for everyone involved, and Capricon as a whole. Remember, if it is illegal outside of the convention, it's illegal inside the convention.

Respect the Party Throwers:

The people throwing the parties are working hard at their own expense to throw parties for you to enjoy. Please remember to appreciate the effort that they are expending on your behalf.

Respect Everyone Else:

A party is no fun, if you're the only one there... If you don't respect the other party goers you may find yourself without people to party with.
