It poured at our first competition and the rain dripping in between wasn't what bothered us the most. It was the mud that came from the rain since we were on a field that didn't have much grass. Luckily we saw folks coming in with hay and we asked where they got it and then ran to the local hardware store. $4 for 2 bails of hay and best money ever spent. So now if we are going to a city we haven't been before we always do a google maps check of the local hardware stores and grocery too so we can see where we need to go.
Another big one that we did plan for was to always have 30gallon trash bags. You can pretty much put anything in there and keep it dry that may not be in a cooler or plastic tub. Multiple changes of clothes are nice too. Especially socks.
