Couple of recommendations:

Move/Copy water from camping gear to field gear. Even if you are not camping and staying at hotels, you will need ~5 gallons per person during the day.

Also, red glowsticks for night evolutions, assuming we are having any this year.

Otherwise pretty comprehensive and spot on.
Its not about how many people I have killed, it is about how I get along with people that are still alive.

Edits made. Great suggestions!

Feeling good about the night game. I know Irene's night games are epic - but the temperatures are much friendlier. At Southern Comfort - we were all so drained from the heat - there were only about 20 of us that wanted to shoot the night game.

Lots of shade with the buildings so I am confident most will be ready to continue into the night game.
