Aside from paint, I would bring tools and a parts kit for each gun. We do not stock GOG/SP parts onsite so I recommend getting a couple re-build kits just in case.
I would also call Ms.Jackie and reserve a campsite, because an event of this magnitude, you may have to park off site. A campsite is a necessity.
I would also bring spare clothes and food for 2-3 days as food vendors can be expensive. There are restaurants within a mile or more of the field but if you don't camp, getting a prime parking spot will be tough.
Bring extra money, there will be vendors on site from Empire/Kee, Tippmann, Valken, Dye and other big names in the industry. Having a little extra cash might make someones Christmas a little happier.
I also HIGHLY recommend a camelback or similar water holding device you can carry to avoid dehydration on the field.
If your planning on playing final battle on Sunday, bring neck protection and a cup/slide shorts/padded bra (for wifey). I use a shemagh for this very reason. Also takes the sting out of headshots at night too, lol.
I also recommend a new lense for your goggles and clear lenses for night play. Flashlights are ok, but chances are your opponent will see your light before you see them.
Another important thing, get up EARLY on Saturday for registration/paint/chrono station/air fills. Also, we have an outside vendor for air and I have heard at past event's that they only let you fill one tank at a time, so make sure wifey goes with you when you get your fill or you will have to get back in line for the 2nd fill.
If you side with Southbase you'll have the benefit of running with one of three home teams that knows the field like the back of our hands.
Any other questions, just ask.
p.s. stock up on batteries, as SP SP-1 owner, I know the solenoids will kill batteries overnight if you leave them connected, even with gun off. I would say 3 gun batteries and enough for your loaders or any other device you use. Also radios are a handy thing to have, especially if you get separated from your teammates.
