A GARDEN HOSE is a good item. The water spigots at the troughs have threads on them. The hose allows you to wash your feet without putting them in the trough. You'll also be very popular as everyone will "want to use your hose."
Even better, attach a shower head to your hose and you can much more easily wash your hair (only disadvantage was having to wait at troughs while several girls used it)
All the $1 store around here carry those clip-to-your-hat flashlights, which are very good to have in those portapottys at night.
Remember to put those personal rolls of TP in a ziplock bag. My friend didn't in 04 and when it poured his backpack had about a gallon of water in it...
Harbor Freight stores have the clamps on sale for under a buck

not a camping supply but an idea...
if you bring/wear stick deodorant... if it's as hot as it was last year it will get melty. makes for a big mess when you open it for the first time friday morning. put it in a ziplock bag in your cooler

man i just bought one of these compressable pillows and its really cool. you can roll it up tight so it takes up less space similar to a sleeping bag and when you open it up it auto inflates itself with the foam inside and its soft. its called thermarest and i got it at EMS. now i dont have to take a full size pillow
saline nasal spray was a lifesaver last year with the dust....
Oooo. That reminds me. For no real reason, I ended up bringing sterile saline eyedrops last year (not the contact kind, as I don't have contacts; just eyedrops not meant to do anything other than irrigate). Seemed like every five seconds, I ended up with dust in my eyes, despite wearing sunglasses. Those drops were a lifesaver.
