Party Rules

Rules are a necessary evil, as long as we all accept that we'll get along fine. And seriously - they're as much for your protection as they are for ours.

  1. Please help keep Capricon, its members, and people at the hotel happy by following all of the rules set by the Westin. Please also follow all of the laws of the State of Illinois, the Town of Wheeling and the U.S. Government. In other words, if it's illegal outside in the non Convention world, it's illegal here on the inside too. We don't want guys in dark suits and sunglasses talking into their cuffs to be visiting us.

  2. All Parties must register through the party liaison to throw a room party during Capricon. Failure to do so may result in your party being shutdown. Capricon reserves the right to refuse a party to be thrown at Capricon for any reason. This decision is at the sole discretion of the party liaison.

  3. Party flyers are allowed to be posted on any bulletin board in the hotel. There will be bulletin boards on the party floor, by Operations, Consuite, Registration, Programming areas, and the first floor elevators. Flyers are allowed on the metal door frames of your room, but not on the door itself. Flyers can not be posted on any wall surface of the hotel regardless of what material it is made of. Flyers are not permitted to be posted in the elevators.

  4. It is the responsibility of every party or person serving a drink to see the ID of the person you are serving a drink to. In Illinois the legal drinking age is 21. Parties not following this law will be shut down as well as face potential legal action if the authorities deem it necessary. Each party should provide some indication, wrist band, hand stamp, etc to verify that an ID has been checked and the recipient is of legal drinking age. It is in each party's best interest to verify the ID independently of other parties.

  5. It is the responsibility of every party to ensure that all persons entering their party are registered members of Capricon by requesting to see a membership badge.

  6. The entire hotel has been designated NON-SMOKING. Smoking is not permitted in any room in the hotel, on hotel room balconies, in the hallways, or in the stairwell or elevators. Violation of this rule will result in action being taken against you up to and including a fine from the hotel of $5000 for cleaning fees if you smoke anywhere on the party floor. You also risk your membership being revoked by Capricon, as well as the possibility that the police will issue you a ticket with additional fines.

  7. In any other circumstance not covered by these rules the Party Liaison will make the final decision.

  8. And above all else... HAVE FUN!
