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.

If you’re using some sort of draft system make sure you keep it as water tight as possible. Mine does not tolerate moisture AT ALL.

If you have the option (especially if you are on grass) get there early and stake out the high ground!

If you are on grass/mud you might need to plan for a little extra time to get your turn ins from your camp to the judges’ tent…the path to get there may be significantly longer than normal if you’re trying to stay out of the mud..Traffic seems to back up a little, too, since everyone is taking the same path.

If you're coming to Shrewsbury, bring high boots, the lot where they put us is going to be a lake.

Yep, we will be there. Be nice if they would move it into the parking lot just above. Probably be a little better.

We were heading to Norwalk CT for the comp this weekend, but they cancelled the event. Shrewsbury was nice enough to let us in last minute. See you there.

I spoke to the person at Shrewsbury this afternoon and was told that we would be on macadam parking lot.
