NISC – FAQ
What is the famous “2 Can Rule”?
The allowance for two cans of “commercially of the shelf” alcoholic beverages per person, per day (typically beer). This allows for the enjoyment of a nice drink while maintaining motoric and cognitive capabilities.
So is it okay for me to show up at 23:00 hours?
No, not really because you need to attend the mandatory safety briefing at 19:30 hours!
What could happen if I don’t abide to the “2 Can Rule”?
You’ll risk being denied to shoot the excercise(s) rendering your team practically chanceless to win anything.
How do we move around Harskamp in the day of the competition?
Busses will shuttle between the barracks and the ranges to transport the teams. Right after the opening on Saturday morning the busses will start from the square to bring the teams that have to shoot first to the ranges. Afterwards the busses will stop in front of building 128 (SAT) building.
How do we know when we have to shoot?
During the registration the team captain will receive a timetable which holds all the teams and the time and location of the exercises.
What happens if the visibility on the ranges is poor due to fog?
We have a bad visibility (fog) program that we can invoke. Before the first team shoots, the necessity of invoking the fog program is evaluated by the range commander. Once invoked, it remains in place for the rest of the teams as well.
When will lunch be served during the competition?
Lunch will be brought to the shooting ranges, so please make sure that you catch a shuttle bus to the ranges around lunch time.
What can you tell me about the barrage program?
After we have counted all the scores and there appears to be a draw, we will call the cell phone number of the team captain (only once) to meet us with the shooter at the SAT building where we will have a barrage. If one of the team captains can’t be reached and/or the shooter is not present within 15 minutes, the win goes to the other shooter. If both shooters don’t show up, a flip of the coin will decide their fate.
What’s the dresscode for the gala dinner?
The dress code is mess dress, or any local equivalent. Ceremonial dresses are very welcome because they express the rich tradition of the armed forces they represent.
