|You'll have fun!!! Thats the best tip I can give, makes sure to relax and remember why you're there. At least you're willing to do multiple runs, dont worry.. everyone is very friendly and helpful, feel free to ask questions.
Addie and I started out CPE, and will continue to do CPE. I personally think its more fun than AKC, but I think we;ll do both. We're going to our 4th agility trial ( 2nd AKC) this weekend.
I would bring a cooler, plenty of water for you and your dog, a nice foldable crate and/or a dolly to carry it, some snacks, really great treats, a kong ( to keep them busy in the crate, sometimes the first trial is very nerve wracking for both human and dog). I always bring a sheet to put over Addies crate to calm her down and take out some of the visual stimulous. I'd also brng a fan, too. battery powered ( can usually get one for about $20).
CPE is fun, I like all the games - wildcard, snooker, jackpot etc. Its very relaxed, and a bit less strict, but still very competitive.
Dont forget to relax, have fun and breathe!!!!
