Please help us make the event a smooth one and - even more importantly - ensure there is another one. Because this is always dependent on the participants’ behaviour, please keep the following rules in mind:
NO BAGGAGE IN THE HALLS
Absolutely no baggage (suitcases, trolleys, backpacks, fencing bags, etc.), flags, banners, logos, rollup displays, etc. inside the halls!!! Only the fencing equipment immediately needed for the specific workshop / for sparring is allowed!
NO SMOKING INDOORS
Absolutely no smoking inside the halls/building. The only place that smoking allows on school grounds: please follow the signposting!
NO STREET SHOES IN THE HALLS
No street shoes allowed in the halls/building outside of the front entrance. So if you are going to smoke you must change shoes… every time!
WATCH YOUR VALUABLES
Bring your wallet, mobile phone, passport, etc. into the halls in the smallest bag/pouch possible - we need every single square centimetre for workshops/sparring.
BE ON TIME
Be on time in the workshops. Nothing is more annoying than people who come late.
NO FOOD OR OPEN CUPS INSIDE THE HALLS
Absolutely no food or open cups/glasses inside the halls! If you want to take something to drink with you, use a sealable bottle.
BE CAREFUL WHILE CARRYING WEAPONS
Be careful while carrying your weapons, especially the pointy ones. Always carry them with the point downwards.
If you make a mess, please clean it up immediately and not 3 days later so we need a high pressure cleaner to remove it. We have cleaning materials AND are willing to help you, but we can’t help if we don’t know.
In the toilets… use the spray after finishing your business! Yes, it is childish to say that, but obviously some people are not doing it. Please keep in mind that there are over 200 people in the halls for three days, so it will be smelly in the toilets. Use the brush and use the spray even if you think that it does not smell, because believe me, it does. 😀
THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE
And the last and most important rule… HAVE FUN!
