I was thinking about things which should be brought to a tournament. And figure out to make a list. Does anyone else have lists of what they brought to a tournament? If so please post them here, for reference.
Bring your robot and biological brain for sure.
Maybe extra motors and batteries if you can afford it.
Tools, along with spare pieces for repairs.
And water, food, everything you would do when you went to a sporting competition pretty much.
Check out this 101 things list…
Safety glasses, spare parts and metal, game elements (if the practice field has to many people on it).
Depends on the type of event…
For a Regional or State Tournaments We take:
Extra Brains (Robot)
Screws and other related hardware
A limited quantity of metal
Dremel (If we fail inspection and need to cut something)
Other misc tools
Articles specific to our robot(Rubber Bands)
A few game elements
For a out of state Worlds type event:
All of the items we take to local events
A ton of extra motors from all of our teams not attending that comp
Same with the Brains and the Batteries
Field tiles and Perimeter Walls
Extra hardware and a lot more metal
At least 3 drills
Giveaways and other decorations for the pit area
and more check lists…

A simple google “NASA Checklists” will yield plenty of scholarly papers on the need for checklists on complex missions.
I know. It’s sarcasm, that’s why it’s in italics.
I do not rely on typography to detect sarcasm, nor to produce it — but for sake of clarity - an emoji might help
