Weapons policy

  • The wearing and carrying of weapons will not be permitted, except as part of a Masquerade contestant's costume, or as part of other designated events, and then only during the event, or in transit to and from the event.
  • The use of a weapon as part of the Masquerade must be approved by the Masquerade Director prior to the event. Failure to comply is grounds for immediate expulsion from the convention.
  • The OryCon Committee defines as weapons any object designed to cause bodily harm, or any replica of such an object and any other object the Committee determines to be dangerous.
  • However, the Committee reserves the right to amend this definition of a weapon, and the right to impound weapons for the duration of the convention.
  • Any weapons purchased in the Dealer's Room must be securely wrapped and transported expediently to your vehicle or room.
  • The Committee realizes that most people who would like to carry and wear weapons are sensible and careful individuals. However, the safety of convention members has to be our overriding consideration. Because of present liability laws, the risk of weapons causing accident or distress, and to preserve relationships with convention hotels, we have adopted this policy.

Child policy

  • All children must be registered with the convention, and all children purchasing memberships must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Children ages 5 and under are admitted to the convention without charge and will be issued a badge that must be kept with the child (or a nearby diaper bag, for example) rather than with one of the parents. The child must be under the supervision of an adult, or in the official Child Care Area, at all times. If a young child is found unattended, he or she will be delivered to the Child Care Area and the responsible adult(s) will be billed.
  • Children ages 6-12 are admitted at half the adult price and may operate independently as long as they cause no problems. Those not capable of operating responsibly on their own must be kept under adult supervision or taken to the official Child Care Area.
  • All children 12 or under must be under direct adult supervision after 8 PM. Children 8 and over may work as convention volunteers, but those ages 8-11 may do so for no more than 4 hours per day. Those ages 12-16 may do so for no more than 6 hours per day.

Smoking policy

  • We are at the same hotel this year, local laws and conventions leave the smoking policy unchanged.
  • Smoking is prohibited throughout all DoubleTree properties. This means no smoking on hotel grounds, per DoubleTree policy. The park across the street is available until it closes at midnight. Please remember there is no smoking at the TriMet station either. Baggies will be available at the Info Desk for policing your butts.

Party policy


What is a party? Any event held in hotel space where:

  • Fliers are posted
  • Public invitations are given out (verbally or written)
  • If Convention Committee or Hotel Security deems it to be a party.


  • A member of Orycon must register the party with Orycon Hotel Liason. This person will be responsible to see that the rest of the rules are followed in their party.
  • The list of parties will be handed off to the OryCon Party Coordinator at con.
  • Responsible individual must not be under the influence of alcohol.
  • A contact list for individuals responsible for each party must be given to the Orycon Party Coordinator prior to the event.
  • If alcoholic drinks are served ALL members must show valid identification.
  • Responsible individual must attend their party during party hours, or if needed, leave someone connected with them in charge with a way to be contacted if they are required to be somewhere else.
  • No alcoholic drinks in other hotel or convention space. All alcohol must remain in the party room.
  • Comply with all hotel rules and Oregon state law. If you do something that gains the attention of the hotel (noise complaints, smoking, etc.) then the person or persons responsible for the room and party are responsible for any fines or legal problems that may arise.
