'Acting Guardian'
« on: August 30, 2005, 09:38:15 pm »
Ok I have a few questions regarding the parental consent forms.
How old does your acting guardian have to be, 18 right?
Is there a limit to how many people you can be a guardian to? I am taking a bunch of friends with me on the last day and I want to make sure it'll be okay if my mom is the guardian for all of them.
So if you are 14+ your guardian just has to be present at the convention, right? Not constantly over your shoulder?
Thanks in advance.

Pretty much.  Teenagers can be signed into their own care, however - though they, not the convention, are responsible for themselves should this happen.

We strongly recommend against a guardian having several hundred charges, and even 3 or 4 dozen might be overdoing it.  But within reason, yes, that should be quite alright.

So if you are 14+ your guardian just has to be present at the convention, right? Not constantly over your shoulder?

An accurate statement.

Ahhh! Wait! We also have three 14 year olds with us. Can they be signed over as their own guardians (as we are only staying from about 11am-7pm each day)?

Check your PMs.  I'll explain in more detail there, so we don't clutter the board.  =^~.~^=
