A Note to Parents and Guardians:DunDraCon is happy to have kids of all ages in attendance at our conventions, and we try to provide events and attractions that will appeal to a wide range of ages. We also encourage safety for kids and everyone else, which is why we have a number of rules and recommendations we hope everyone will follow (see our program booklet or our Tips Page.) Children are expected to follow the rules of DunDraCon just as adults are, and are subject to the same penalties and restrictions if they do not.
One way parents and guardians can assure that minors in their charge will be as safe as possible at the convention is to make sure an emergency contact number is included for every child who registers with us. If any problem arises, it helps us and the hotel to have a way to contact you right away. Those of you in attendance at the convention can leave room numbers, but a cell phone number is better, and both is best of all. If you are not physically at the convention, please try to provide alternative contact numbers (home, business, cell) as appropriate. It's a good idea for adult members to provide this information as well, in the unlikely event that an accident or health crisis gives us need to contact a relative or other person of interest.
We rate most of our events for content in order that parents, children and other attendees will have some idea of what they can expect in a given game, and can choose events most appropriate to their enjoyment and comfort. See our game content standards.
DunDraCon has neither the authority nor the resources to supervise the kids in attendance at our convention. While we are not baby-sitters, we do want to assist parents in every way we can as they make the most appropriate decisions regarding their childrens' presence at the convention. Know your child's capacity to operate autonomously and make decisions with that in mind.
Please contact any member of our staff if you need assistance at any time regarding your children (or for any other con-related matter). Above all else, we want to help you and yours have the best possible convention, and will do whatever we can to make that happen.
In-Tow Badges: If you've come to the convention with a nongaming child (or other person who is not interested in playing our official games, but just wants to look at the dealer's room and so on), they can get an "In Tow" badge. Our Games Registration system will not accept this badge, but the badge will allow entrance into almost all the other convention areas. These are free. If your child decides he/she wants to play some official games after all, come to the Registration Desk to upgrade it.
