    You'll love it. Hope to be there myself and you'll be hard pressed to meet a nicer crowd of top notch players on a great and varied site.

    Stick with me and you won't have much catching up to be doing! The main thing to bring that might not occur to you is water as you would be surprised how easy it is to get dehydrated and some food if you are staying for the full day (which I would recommend).

    Make sure the boots afford some ankle protection and sounds like you are good to go.

    Bring water and munchies as well
