Excellent advice. Also, you need to know how long it will take to get from your spot to the turn in area. At smaller comps this will be a minute or two, but at bigger comps this can be 5 minutes or more. We always walk it and time the walk, and we purposely walk slowly so we can pick it up for the real thing.
