Default First Obedience Trial Questions

I just signed Jade and I up for our first trial! We will be doing beginner novice. Nervous does not even begin to describe how I feel, but everyone has to start somewhere right? I have a couple of newbie questions for y'all!

The show is Jan 18th and 19th and about 2 hours away from our house. About how long should I plan on being at the event each day? And how do I know when I need to be there?

Would you recommend getting a hotel in town or just making the drive both days?

Besides the basics (crate, leash, collar, ect) what should I plan on bringing with me, and is there anything that I should make sure to leave at home?

Any tips/advice for this VERY nervous first timer?
