This will be posted at Troll. Attendees are responsible for this information

Attendee Code of Conduct:

For 4 years the owners of the Silver Bell Ranch have generously donated the use of their property to the Highlands of Chaos for the purpose of having a private, consistent and adequate site for Chaos Wars. Chaos Wars is a large event. It runs for 1 full week and hosts many fighters from across the country. As a participant of Chaos Wars you have an obligation to the site owners, event coordinators and your fellow attendees to be respectful and cooperative and act in a manner that promotes esteem and acceptance in a fun and safe environment.

As a reminder, during the event all attendees must follow all Federal and Idaho State laws. Along with those the Chaos Wars event has a few additional rules.

As an attendee there are few rules to keep in mind while enjoying Chaos Wars:

1. Under no circumstances whatsoever are you to enter any of the equestrian areas or interact with the horses or livestock on the property. The Chaos Wars designated site will be clearly identified and you must abide by the boundaries.
[This is the omega rule. Violating this will get you kicked out, Period.]

2. All attendees are responsible for all litter on site. Even if it's not yours.
The owners have complained about litter and this is not acceptable. Trash cans are conveniently located around the site and are emptied regularly. There are also designated recycling bins. There is no reason to have a messy camp.
2.a. Cigarette butts are to be disposed of properly. Bring a coffee can or something please. The site owners have complained about this.
2.b. Fire rings in your camp are not for disposing of trash this includes cans, bottle caps and plastic.

3. Fires:
Due to fire warnings in the dry Idaho climate, camp fire allowance is subject to change at any time. Sometimes it isn't worth the risk or we can't legally have camp fires. This happens in the summer sometimes. We will deal with it.
Do not destroy any trees, vegetation or features on the site property in general but especially not for firewood.
Some firewood is available on the site and if you plan to have a fire consider sharing a fire in a larger camp or bringing your own firewood.
Please refrain from creating too many additional fire rings.
Keep your camp's fire under control, supervised, and at an appropriate blaze. Failure to do so may result in having your fire taken away from you. This can happen.
When you leave the site at the end of the event make double sure that your camp fire has been properly extinguished.

4. Quiet Camp is for quiet people and families. Be respectful.

5. Period drinking vessels will be enforced.
This isn't new. Have a mug, flask, bladder or unlabeled, period-ish jug/bottle for all of your non-water beverages.
Water bottles are acceptable only for water.
Keep plastic/glass soda, mixer and liquor bottles in your camp.

6. Excessive (i.e. loud and vulgar) profanity is not permitted on field or during scheduled nightlife activities. Keep it like the Simpsons. There may be families present. Talk however you want in your camp.

7. 21 is 21. Under age drinking is prohibited. When you register you will be presented with a wrist band that you will be responsible for wearing during the event. There are under 21 and 21+ bands. Giving your 21+ wrist band to a minor could result in disciplinary action including a crash course in Idaho State Law.
7.a. If you drink alcohol you are responsible for your own actions and are still subject to any rules you may violate whilst in your condition. Amnesia does not get you anywhere. Be responsible and safe. Be respectful to those around you. Problems or damages you cause may incur disciplinary action including being removed from the event and/or the meeting of local law enforcement.
7.b. No drunk fighting. Heralds will remove you from the field and the head herald can suspend you for a day or longer depending on your actions. Reoccurring incidents may require removal from the event.

8. Minimum garb requirements will be enforced. No jeans, no uncovered t-shirts, no modern hats on field, no casual-wear sunglasses on field. You know... the obvious stuff.
8.a. Nudity is not garb.

9. If you venture to the river that boarders the property to the west (which is totally ok to do) please remember that this is public land and there may be locals using the waters. Be respectful. It is not ok for people who are not registered with the event to enter the property through the riverside access. This is considered trespassing.
9.a. Any non-registered individuals who enter the site without permission from Troll or the site owners first are considered trespassers and will be removed from the site. Please report any sitings of mundanes to a city guard member or an event coordinator immediately. Do not try to remove trespassers by yourself.

10. No dogs allowed on the site, in the camps, on field or in the parking lot.
No dogs allowed. The site owners have dogs that you may see around the site.
There are several great kennels that you can board your pets at in Hailey and Bellevue if you need.

p.s.
For the sake of your enjoyment and that of those around you remember: No drama. Everyone is at CW to have fun and nobody wants to hear it.
All information posted herein is subject to change but will be posted at Troll at Chaos Wars

This will be posted at Troll. Attendees are responsible for this information

IMO this should be stickied for as long as we use the Silver Bell Ranch site.

On that note, Jeff is charging us $1 per item that he finds with a $2 per cigarette butt after we leave the site.

Soooo


PICK UP YOUR ****.

Get the message: your cigarette butt raises each event attendee's fee next year a penny. This is littering, don't do it.

This should be more than posted at troll, it should be read and autographed by each attendee imo.

Typo. I agree with Bortas that this should be read and signed by all attendees. That way when somebody gripes and * the signed paper can be waived in there face to shut them up.

Yeah, seriously; the world is not your ash-tray. Even when I was smoking, I always made a point of throwing my butts away.
Everyone needs to be more responsible for their mess. It's unacceptable for some folk to have to pick up after you just because you are a lazy, messy **** with no respect for anyone or anything around them.
On a lighter note, thanks for posting this, it's really well-done.

Sheesh get off me mmkay?
Fixed.

I don't know, I think having this clearly posted at troll is fine. I hate paperwork waste anyway. We can include a note on the check in sheet or something. None of these rules are super hard to follow and if you have any eventing experience you should know how to behave at functions like this. Still, it's nice to have warnings in writing.

Instead of a separate paper that they need to sign have a line in the waiver stating that they have read that and agree to all it entails too. Clean and easy, not extra paperwork. Just and extra bit in the waiver.

No matter what is decided it is nice to have it spelled out to point to when someone is being a *.

i just wanted to be sure everyone reads and understands the code of conduct before you show up because i had a conversation with jeff today about underage drinking and dogs on site. The clear definitive answer to both of these is no and none. If you do you'll be asked to leave.

He's not trying to be mean on the dogs on site, but it hasn't worked out before and won't in the future and he's asked that we have none, not that you show up and ask forgiveness but that you have none. So if you do bring a dog you'll be asked to remove the dog from the site.

As far as underage drinking its a really really big no no. It could lose him his ranch so he said in no uncertain terms that if he has to he'll just ask everyone to pack up and leave...meaning all of chaos. He can't afford to lose his ranch because of legal bs over some idiot drinking underage. He's not trying to be mean and i'm not trying to either. Its just the way it has to be and he wanted to make sure everyone was completely clear on it.

Thanks

Over age drinking is still ok, right.

Just as an addition to 7 and 7a - the pub, as always, will require a valid ID. Meaning your wristband will not fly.

EDIT:

8. Minimum garb requirements will be enforced. No jeans, no uncovered t-shirts, no modern hats on field*, no casual-wear sunglasses on field**. You know... the obvious stuff.
8.a. Nudity is not garb.

* hats of modern make, modern materials or with modern commercial logos.

** After consideration there will be no current stance on sunglasses use on field.

Please continue any further debate or discussion in an appropriate forum.
