FAQ/Rules

What Membership and Entrance to Queen City Kamikaze Involves:
Upon acceptance of Membership to QCK, members become responsible for their personal liability. If you somehow blow yourself up it is not QCK or the venue’s fault.
Membership Badges are required for entry into QCK and must be visible at all times. Membership Badges are non-replaceable, non-refundable, and non-transferable, but are sexy.
Acceptance of a Membership Badge constitutes consent to the use of the wearer’s image or likeness in any recording, transmission, or reproduction of QCK. You will likely be in the background of someone’s pictures.
Failure to comply with the published rules of QCK, including disruptive or inappropriate behavior, will result in the revocation of Membership and ejection from QCK. QCK may revoke membership and eject anyone from the convention at anytime for any reason without a refund.
