Default First Comp Help

Hi All:
So my brother and I entered my dad into his first competition (backyard division). It's coming up in two weeks, so here are a few questions I have:
1. Aside from the obvious coolers, smokers, seasonings, what are the items we maybe won't or haven't thought about that are must-haves for a comp?
2. What do we need to take for sanitation purposes? The site will have public restrooms for hand-washing, but that seems like a nightmare, what can we do?
Simple concerns, I hope, but we're trying to keep Dad busy. I want this to be a good experience for him, as barbequeing is one of the things he's found to keep him occupied while he's trying to stay sober. Very proud if the old man.

Thanks in advance!

Extension cords and lighting and some way to make hot water are pretty key.
PVC pipe extensions for the table legs help a lot.
For sanitation, we use three bus tubs: Wash, Rinse, Sanitize.

disposable gloves make clean up a snap.

Do a google search for "BBQ Comp Checklists" there's a bunch out there that are helpful.

Set up in your yard or driveway exactly as you plan to do at the comp, and cook the regular competition schedule including turn in to the "judges". Keep track of anything that you have to go into the house to get and add that to your list.

Good/sharp knives, cutting boards, lighting, coverage of some sort (10x10 tent works well), comfy chairs for those in between times, lots of water to hydrate. For sure check out those checklists, but keep in mind that they are for pro teams and you may not need all of it to start off (we do BY too).

We keep Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer in our space for cleaning and "washing hands" as needed, but like someone said gloves are a must because it'll help keep your hands clean while dealing with food and will keep things more sanitary and less sticky.
