REENACTOR REGISTRATION: Reenactors must register at the registration tent on sutler row. Membership in the NCWC, WCWA or other recognized reenacting reciprocal organization is required. Please have membership cards with you. Reciprocating organizations will need to sign a waiver to participate and must be current members of their respective organizations. Non-members will be asked to pay a fee and join a unit belonging to the NCWC in order to participate. Any reenactor found to be unregistered will be dismissed from activities by their commanding officer. All reenactors must register to be at the site.
REENACTOR PARKING: You MUST have a Reenactor Parking Pass in your vehicle which you can get at the registration desk. Your Parking Pass is good for the entire season, so please remember to bring it with you! If you enter the public entry gate you will be charged admission. Reenactors must not park in public parking areas.
SAFETY: NCWC safety rules shall apply at all NCWC events! Battle participants must have a current written safety test on file with their company commander. It is expected that each Unit Commander can show proof of safety test completion by all the members of that unit who will be participating at this event. ALL mounted members riding a horse on the battlefield must have passed a NCWC mounted certification test or similar test given by their reciprocating club with the horse they will be on. Weapons will be inspected at first parade by brigade and anytime thereafter by order of the respective company commander.
SET-UP: The park will be open for entry, registration, and setup the day prior to each event. Earlier entry is usually possible - contact the event coordinators. Cavalry and Sutlers usually are allowed to set up a day earlier.
MODERN CAMPING: See individual event notes. Contact the Event Coordinator with questions.
ALCOHOL: Alcohol may be used only in moderation and when all the following conditions are met:
a. In compliance with any local regulation.
b. Only after the last engagement when weapons are secured.
c. Only after the public has departed.
d. At backcountries, only during those periods of time which were decided upon prior to the start of the event. For example in the evening between agreed upon hours.
The use of alcohol in violation of these rules will result in suspension from the event and such additional
discipline as is provided in the bylaws (See Article VIII of the NCWC Bylaws)
Fort Stevens State Park rules PROHIBIT use or possession of alcohol within the park. Violators are subject to criminal prosecution.
FIREWOOD: Firewood will be provided unless otherwise indicated in the individual event notes. Wood is well supplied but units should not take more than needed. Community wood will be placed in designated piles.
CLEANUP AT END OF EVENT: Please leave the firewood that was supplied at the reenactment and stack it in one pile per battalion camp. Commanders/Leaders should inspect their camps to be sure they clean their sites satisfactorily, as poorly cleaned fire pits can result in fines to your unit. Please place trash in the appointed dumpster, (NOT just the nearest garbage can).
