GUIDELINES FOR NRCC BATTLE MARCH

Rev 1.0

Welcome to our first Battle March event, which we hope will become an annual event.

The march’s format: The march will consist of a preplanned 10km long route. The intent is to replicate one of the actual shorter marchs and give the reenactor a taste of what it was like to partake in such an event, but with a lesser degree of hardship.

Equipment:

For a SADF troop, this will consist of either full browns (shirt and pants) or browns overalls. A bush hat is preferred but in its place a M63 staaldak or M83 kevlar helmet are acceptable. SADF issue boots are to be worn, either brown or black depending on the unit represented by the individual.

The webbing to be worn is either the P70 or P83 web gear. The P70 webbing will consist of the full marching gear, i.e. skeleton webbing including grootsak and poncho cover. The P83 webbing will consist of the grootsak and chest webbing. The webbing in either case must make allowance for easy access to the 4 magazines and 2 liters (minimum) of water, stored in period correct containers.

Webbing weight is to be 10kg minimum. This will include a helmet, if worn but exclude the two liters of water (minimum) and will include the 4 magazines. It is suggested that the equipment weigh slightly more than 10kg to prevent any misunderstandings.

It is suggested that the kit contain any snacks or light eats that can be eaten along the route. Plasters or duct tape should be packed if one is prone to blisters.

A suitable AEG is to be carried and can be fitted with a suitable period correct sling. This will be charged, on safe and carried without a magazine fitted. The magazines carried will contain a total of 100bb’s equally distributed. If only one magazine is used, then a speed loader is to be carried.

The webbing will be weighed at the start of the march, and must weigh in on the NRCC hand scale at 10kg. This will be weighed again at a random point and once again at the end of the march.

For those representing other troops, the webbing and kit should match their representation but still match the weight and other requirements.

Format

The march is to course is to be completed in full in under 4 hours to obtain a pass. The participants may walk in groups or as individuals. Hydration stops are allowed, and the frequency and duration are up to the participants themselves.

It is suggested that the participants do read up on heat stroke, the prevention thereof and treatment thereof.

After 10 minutes break, after the march each participant will be expected to advance on and engage a series of targets and reload between each target. By completing the march in 4 hours and then engaging the targets, each participant will have completed the days events.

Entries will be via a prepaid entry application.

Each participant will be expected to sign an indemnity form. The participants must bring a copy of their ID and medical aid number.

New Facebook Page

We have launched a new NRCC Facebook Page.

Link here: https://www.facebook.com/nutriaclub/

Between now and 31 May 2018 we will be migrating all posts and users to this page and as of 1 June 2018 this will be the only NRCC presence on Facebook. Please don’t be alarmed if you see yourself being removed from the group and added to the page. Until this migration has been completed we will ensure that posts are made both to the current group and this page.

The reasoning behind the shift to a Facebook Page rather than the current Facebook Group is that we will have greater freedom to interact with our followers as the NRCC and not as individuals. Added features with the Page include the ability to ive stream videos from our events and even the spotter plane’s flights and offer the NRCC memorabilia for sale on a single platform. You will also be able to now message the NRCC directly and tag us in posts by using the handle @nutriaclub ({at}nutriaclub). We will in future post all NRCC and related events to the Page calendar as well.

Remember to check out for the NRCC hashtags on Facebook and Instagram:

PAGE RULES:

SOME GROUND RULES

DO NOT JOIN THIS PAGE TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT GENERAL AIRSOFT….

The NRCC group was created as a means to keep alive the history of the various Southern African borderwars by use of re-enactment within the means of MilSim airsoft. This means making use of Airsoft replicas that catch the look and feel of the original small arms used as well as the uniforms used by various parties. Furthermore the NRCC puts on displays of Militaria to the public at certain key events throughout the year.

All welcome to join as long as you can contribute.

WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE KEEP TOPICS AND LINKS RELEVANT BORDERWAR AIRSOFT RELATED!!!!! WE DO NOT WANT FOR EXAMPLE DISCUSSIONS AROUND THE LATEST AIRSOFT LASER, ETC.

As per all re-enactments there are more than one side to a battle and all these sides will need to be recreated. This means not trying to glorify or justify any specific role but rather to keep the history, look and feel alive.

Our forum exists for reference purposes at : http://www.nutria.co.za/forum/index.php

We do not want to discuss current politics, or venting any dislike/hatred towards another race group on this group. Any posts deemed unsuitable and off thee topic will be immediately deleted.

Thanks
The Nutria Reenactment and Collectors Club
