Spare boots if you have them, in case the pair you're wearing gets soaked. I also keep the spare socks in my vest with me, along with a basic first aid kit - all sealed up in ziplock bags. You never know, and all that.

I'd like to make the obvious statement here:

Ounces become pounds, the more you're carrying on you for the game day, the quicker you will expire. Carrying things like extra socks on you while playing is just going to weigh you down. You may laugh, but if you added up all the "extra, in case" items on your kit, and weighed them, it might turn out to be more than you thought.

By all means, bring things like that to the game day, and have them in your pack at the safe zone... but I don't recommend bringing things into the field which you're going to have to go out of game to use anyways.

You pretty much listed off everything you need and hit the nail on the head...

Just make sure to double check your battery's that they are full and properly charged and test your guns to make sure they are all in 100% working condition so you don't get surprised 5 minutes into a game.

bring some allen keys just in case you need to adjust your motor height or w.e in game along with some smaller tools too.... (screwdrivers, knife, needle nose pliers...)

and I find that a roll of tape is always needed by at least 1 person on game day....

IMP's don't really expire, they just don't taste as good after the listed date. Like your brownie/wheat snack bread/rice/coco All look the exact same.

Or maybe I'm thinking MRE's.

No they definitely do expire. Stay away from expired ones, or you may just grow a third nut.

What if you lost a nut in the war? wouldn't you want to regrow one?

Batteries, charged...all the batteries you can toss into your car.

Batteries for radios, RDS, flashlights, AEGs...

A DC converter for your car is never a bad idea.

Grease pencil and acetate cover (or whatever clear binder thingys you can get).

Compass (or GPS...bring batts).

COMFORTABLE shoes for afterwards...

Folding chair

Fill ice cooler with drinks for afterwards

Hit/kill rag (usually a red rag)

general rags/bags for stuff afterwards

antihistimines, advil

The thing to remember is that a lot of the "extra" stuff you may decide to bring along will probably stay in your car and never come out... all you really need to have on you while you play is camo, rig, radio/headset, goggles, gun(s), mags, some water and power bars/jerky. Real food, spare clothes, extra batteries, gas, sunscreen, bug juice, bb's, tools, the rest of your water, "normal people" clothes for the drive home etc etc all just sits in the car or the staging area, depending on what it is. At a long game like Rawdon, nobody will mind if you take a few minutes out to go to your vehicle for essentials or resupply in your staging area.

All I'm saying is I wouldn't worry about being weighed down.

But if you're going to a Rawdon game, for the love of God bring sunscreen. You will use it or fry. Maybe bake is a better word, but either way it will be bad.

Don't forget your anti-fog solution for your goggles.
There is nothing worst then fogging during a game. You can have all the gear you want, if you can't see, you can't play.

For the Rawdon field, I'd suggest having more water and or gatoraid. That place is HOT, even if it's rainning.

If you normally field a plate carrier, try to find something lighter and with more breathability.

Soldiers in Iraq get a few week to aclimatise to 40 celcius heat. You only get 30 minutes or less. Beleive me, you want to be light and cool.

Have what you need in a backpack that you can leave at your base or ammo dump. So when it's GAME OFF, you just have to bring a backpack and yourself to the main erea. If you went hardcore all day, you will love not to have to lug around a guncase and other heavy shit back to your car.

A folding camping chair is nice to have for after the game or whenever you decide to take a off field break.

Sunscreen and bugspray.

Leave your GBB at home. Or carry it in a ziplock bag. Definatly no dropleg holdster unless you like dismantling guns and cleaning them. Sand will get everywhere.

Don't forget your killrag (red flag) because walking back to respawn and getting lighted up by 50+ ambushs sux!

If you have a scope or binoculars, they will come handy.

Have a good breakfast before the game and begin hydratation before you go to bed before the game.

Know the sings of dehydratation and heat stroke. Drink untill you need to pee. Then drink more.
