Welcome to Still Hacking Anyway, happy to see you!
Please take some time and read through this booklet. You might find it very rewarding, as there is a lot of practical information collected to help you on your merry way. In case of questions, you might find answers on the wiki: wiki.sha2017.org, or visit the Info Desk at the location on the map somewhere further down in this booklet.
SHA has been organized by your peers, friends and unknown other hackers: people, like you, who have chosen to dedicate a lot of their time to create something we can love. Please feel welcome to contribute to the camp by doing a few angel shifts or just start helping out wherever you can. Like the rest of life and all other hacker camps around the world: this camp is what you make of it, so let's have a great time together!
Safety & First Aid
In case of an emergency
Please stay calm , mind your own safety and dial DECT 2222 or +31 622005297 on any other phone, this will put u in contact with the central post of team safety.
Please state the following clearly to the operator:
- Your name
- Your current location
- The type of help you request (steward (security), fire, medical)
- Amount of people involved
- State of those involved
- Any information that might be relevant to emergency personnel
- Please make breathing room for team:Safety to do their job, please don't become a disaster tourist.
- Follow instructions given by any member of the Safety team
If anything else fails please run to the first aid staion on orga area and notify the team
Always notify the Safety team, DO NOT CALL external emergency services yourself, because if we don't know there is a emergency and can't help you until external help is there (this can take up to 30 minutes !)
The First Aid team will be on duty 24/7 and is housed in a tent on the main Orga Area.
Members of the first aid team who are on duty can be recognized by their high-vis green safety jackets.
The people of the first aid team have access to basic medical supplies to take care of injuries, including an AED (Automatic Electronic Defribullator) for the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest.
There will also be a doctor (general practitioner) on site, if u need a doctor please contact First Aid
The stewards are in charge of the camp on-site security and are on duty 24/7 and are housed on the main orga area. Members of the steward team who are on duty can be recognized by their high-vis blue safety jackets with the text STEWARD on the back. Please wear your SHA2017 bracelet at all times, our stewards may check on this.
Our Fire Marshalls are on duty 24/7 and can be recognized by their high-vis black safety jackets.
In case of a fire please try to put it out with any fire extinquisher on the field (please be careful) and immediately report the fire to team:safety via the central post by phone.
There are fire lanes on the fields, it is important to keep them free of tents and any other objects
The fire lanes are not only meant to stop a fire from spreading but also to give firetrucks reach the fire quickly.
All fire lanes are marked with barrier tape.
Cooking on gas powered equipment including gas BBQ is allowed
Note: Gas is not gasoline but butane, propane, or a mixture thereof
Harbour / Water
Even water is fun it is not without risks that you can cause for yourself or your environment. There are a couple of harbour rules that you must adhere to. Not because we like rules, but simply because we want all of you to enjoy the harbour and return home in good health. The rules are partly Dutch law and partly camp rules:
- On a boat the skipper or so you will captain is always responsible for the safety on the boat. All external signals can only be an advice.
- In the Harbour the Sharbourmaster (Harbour Master) is responsible. When given orders you have to obay;
- It is everybody’s duty to do everything possible to prevent accidents from happening, injury from occurring and damage from occurring;
- Ships need to contact the Safe Harbour Authority before entering the Harbour. You can do so through VHF Channel 88, by calling 8888 on your DECT or dialling .....
- No undocked ship shall be anchored within 100 meters of the dock, lay lines, nets, pots or floating gear attached in areas that are used as fairways or in a position that is likely to cause obstruction to other harbour users unless in areas indicated by the harbour master;
- Maximum speed within 100 meters of the harbour is 5 km per hour or 2.7 knots per hour;
- No vessel should discharge rubbish, effluent or pollutant of any kind within the harbour limits. We are in a protected environmental zone. Any violation will be reported to the authorities as it is dangerous, filthy and unhealthy. Violating these rules may result in fines up to €20.500 and up to two years imprisonment. No black water dumping!
- Water carries noise long ways so no loud noise after midnight and before 7 am in the morning;
- Open fire is NOT ALLOWED anywhere on the field, this means no campfires, and no charcoal BBQ
The campgroud will be highly flammable during summer, please extinquish cigaretts etc properly
- Cooking: you may use gas-powered stoves and barbecue grills. Please also bring a fire-extinguisher. You can not make open fire.
- Camping only on the fields (not between the trees or on the marked paths / fire lanes)
- You may sell, in limited amounts, things related to your interests. No food or beverages, or other stuff that's restricted under Dutch law.
There is a field next to the terrain where you can fly drones. This is above flowers field, on the left where you entered the camp.
In recent months/years the drone regulations have become somewhat stricter. These rules can be summarized as:
- Only fly during the day
- Maximum height is 120 meters
- Grant passage to other air traffic
- Be able to see the drone when in flight
- Don't fly over crowds and the campsite
- Know your drone, it's quirks and hardware
- Respect privacy (camera drones)
- Fly responsibly and careful

Nature and nearby villages
Forests, Zeewolde, Beaches, etc...
The nature on and around the campsite is part of Natura 2000 (european law to protect nature), please respect nature and do not harm it in any way.
Swimming is allowed in the pond that has Griet Titulair island in it, and in the harbor or at the beach near Engelbart field. The other ponds are not for swimming because of the terrains irrigation system that is in those ponds (tube's and such) If the water quality is bad or there is not enough water due to tue drought, swimming might be limited Please do not dive into the water as it may be shallow. For your safety please wear slippers or watershoes. Be careful when swimming out of the harbor or the Engelbart beach: the Nuldernauw is very wide, very deep and very cold. Also there might be currents you are not expecting and boats on the water that won't notice you until they hear 'bonk'.
