My first comp was in the rain at Philly.

Regarding your attitude...remember mostly that everybody else there also has to put up with the rain, and the rain does fall on everybody, so cheer up, grin, and bear it.

Now to help you 'grin and bear it'...
If you can conjure up some sort of walls for your EZups, that's a plus

and...(especially 'and'...)

It would help immensely if you could figure out some sort of head height rain gutter system to use/install between your EZups so that your 'dry canopy' is a full TWO EZups...first imagine that if you put the EZups side by side in such a way that water/rain is allowed to drip between the two adjacent head height 'fringes' of the canopies. If you can join those two surfaces and sort of join them together with some sort of home made plastic rain gutters (heavy plastic or saran wrap and clothespins or binder clips, then the homemade rain gutter could allow water to run off to the side of your 'camp' rather than down into the middle of your camp.

Good luck
