Convention Pre-Flight Checklist

In an effort to keep myself from getting to a con and realizing, "Holy crap, I didn't bring the ______!" I'm trying to put together a convention pre-flight checklist that I can just fill out and check off as I go. I'm posting it here for people to snag and use if they like, but also in case people can help me think of items that need to go on here that I've forgotten, or changes anybody might want to suggest. So, comments welcome!
