A relatively short list of things to consider:

Who's paying the fees?
Who's in charge?

Things to bring:

Cooker(s)
Charcoal
Wood
Fire extinguisher
How to light the wood/charcoal
Bus tubs for sinks
Hot water?
Table(s)
Canopy(s)
Chairs
Meat
Ice
Ice Chests - 1 for meat, 1 for ice, 1 for drinks, 1 dry for holding meat, etc.
seasonings - who's rub are you using - extra salt, sugar, turbinado sugar, etc.
foil
plastic wrap
storage bags
breakfast food
munchies
beer/water/sodas
dish washing stuff
hand washing stuff
tongs/spatulas
coffee maker and makings

Where are you sleeping - are you sleeping. Who is responsible for lighting off the cooker(s). Who must be at the cook's meeting - who's the team captain? (this can be different than who's in charge!)

And so on.

Maybe we just over planned the first time and Tim and I can certainly throw together a team in a hurry now - but with "new" members and not having had all the stuff together you guys would really need to hump to make it in two weeks.

Phil and company have done it but only because Phil has all the crap in his carport! When I cooked with him in NJ I flew into Long Island on Thursday - we picked up the trailer and made a Costco run. I sorted and loaded stuff on the trailer while he and James were strapping down the BYC. We didn't get to Asbury Park until nearly mid-night and setup Friday morning. But, we could do this because he already had the crap ready (sort of!). We still hit Costco at home and then twice more in NJ. After doing this once you guys will be able to throw a team together too - I don't think Phil has cooked with the same team twice! :D

Now, these are just my thoughts. You guys can certainly make it happen but you'd have to straighten out who's paying what and when and then start exchanging checklists - if everyone is supposed to bring some things to the team.
