Show supplies checklist?

So, this is going to be my first year showing without my team or atleast someone with anything that I may forget. I need to make sure I don't forget anything now, because I won't have anyone to save my butt. My first show of the season is an open show, and were showing english and western. Does anybody have a checklist or anything that can make sure I don't forget anything and I'm completely ready?

I break things down in groups so it is easier to just stand there and make sure I have everything.

Everything I need for myself for the day (excluding showing):
Food & drinks
Clothes (jacket, rain gear, etc, whatever the season requires)
Sun screen and bug spray

Everything I need for myself for showing:
Hair containment products
Show clothes
Rags for boots and quick tack wipe down

Everything my horse needs for the day (excluding showing):
Water buckets
Grooming equipment (including polish or whatever of that type of stuff you may use)
Fly spray
Extra halter and lead rope
Rags for slobber clean up, etc. (Baby wipes are good to have too)
Hay and hay bag

Everything my horse needs for showing:
Mane braiding/banding stuff

Misc stuff:
Screw driver (great for so many things)
Hammer (if you are renting a stall for the day, good for getting rid of nails or such that might be sticking out)
Double ended snaps (so many things they are good for)
Mounting block/step stool
Saddle rack(s)
Lawn chairs

Everyone has given you a good list to work from. Here's a few more to add.

Chicago screws & screwdriver
Extra reins
Extra curb chains
Leather latigo ties
(You never know when you will have to repair on the fly)

Vet wrap & cotton combine wrap
Disposable razor & sensitive shaving cream (for stray hairs on muzzle that might have been missed when clipping)
Safety pins
Buttons & sewing kit

I also haul water from home, there are a lot of places mine refuse to drink. Esp if there is chlorine in the water or if it's heavy in sulphur (the egg smell water, yuk!)

Protein bars & gatorade - sometimes you just don't have time to eat & I don't like to eat a full meal in the heat.

I forgot about those! They also have a permanat position in my lorry along with a can of WD40 spray for sticky hinges/rusty screws also very very good for getting sticky label glue off things!

Oh and I always carry ACP (I beleive it is called ACE in the US) with me in case anything goes wrong for example a breakdown. If I have to unload a horse on the side of a 70mph 3 lane motorway with 50ton trucks whistling past me then I would rather he was doped up to the eyeballs.
