To supplement and hopefully reduce the amount of paper used for site copies, we will be using an event app! Please download the app at: http://www.eventsxd.com/download. From there, you may search for the event titled “Kingdom Arts & Sciences and Rapier 2019” (after you visit it, you’ll find it in the future under “My” where it first says “Featured”. The app allows you to see information on the event, custom build your own schedule or look over the general schedule, see floor plans, and more.
Site Rules (Hotel-specific)
Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the ballrooms. For those interested, a pre-order lunch option is available (please see meal information below). Food and drink purchased from the Inn’s restaurant, Larks, may be taken into the ballrooms. Outside food and drink may be in guest rooms and in the Meadows breakfast nook (after 10am).
The main area of the Inn does not allow alcohol (other then that purchased at the Inn’s bar and restaurant) so please keep all alcohol in guest rooms.
The Inn does not allow papers and such put up on doors or on walls. If you have an event or activity you would like to promote, the intention is to have a sandwich board for such listings.
Please keep guest room parties and gatherings to a reasonable level – While most of the Inn will be Scadians, some will not be and even scadians like sleep. Please be aware and respectful of your neighbors.
