yeah that must suck. I would be so mad if they made an age restriction on something like that >_<

I'm sure it is to protect those that are really young against the creeps in the world. We have asked why already and we'll see what the response is.

@Sugar
Me neither. If they have a restriction for this, it's like the same as having a restriction for K-con.
...NOT saying that they should. ^_^;;;;;;;;

I'm sure there is a good reason. I doubt my parents would let me go to a dance like this especially if there were going to be people over 21 o.o

I personally suspect its to protect the con from possible lilability issues.  thats what they're usually exist for.

There's a reason I went to my first anime con last year; before High School all of this freedom stuff was forbidden because my parents feared the creepers :D

I agree. My sister's over 18, and she pretty much takes me everywhere.

And if something does happen, you can always inform the staff.

Minimum age to attend the dance is 14.  14 to 17 year olds will need a parental permission form, 18 and over will need ID.  The rest of the info will be posted in the next couple of days ;)
Will my college ID work?  If not, I can dig up my birth certificate.  I don't have my state ID any more. :/

Good question. I will have my drivers license but I am not sure if a school id will work, most of them don't have birth dates on them.

Maybe you should ask if minors under the age of 14 are allowed to go as long as there's a guardian with them. *nudge nudge hint hint* ;)
