    For an outdoor event, I'll suggest you getting a all rounded super zoom such as 18-200mm. You'll appreciate its zoom range instantly given your experience with the kit lens.
    You also same some money by getting just the lens and a SB-800 or 600 rather than a 17-55.
    That being said, competent handling of the flash(balancing of light) to get the proper exposures in the outdoors will be the greatest challenge to you.
    If you're keen to learn more, feel free to drop me a sms or pm.

    i would suggest either your kit lens with sb600, or a 18-200mm with sb600. 18-200 can save you time changing lens here and there.

    i suggest just get the flash, if ur renting, get the sb900 for max power since ur renting anyway. a fast lens would help but honestly isnt really necessary since for group shots u'll be shooting stopped down anyway for the dof.

    Just rent the 18-200 & SB-900

    18-200 for all those closeup & group shoot
    SB-900 for the flash power to cover everyone in a large group shot

    "Amazing Race"? Haha.. Your kit lens will do fine.

    No offence, but it doesn't seem like you have a lot of experience with photography. Getting too much equipment in one go may overwhelm you.

    Chalet? UWA for me (10-24, maybe). Of course, everyone will have their own opinions and styles of shooting.

    first of all. let me thank all for reading and your comments. greatly appreciate them. most probably will rent a 18-200mm and either SB600/900.

    with a flash, i don't think i will need a fast lens then right? correct me if i'm wrong. still a newbie.

    don't think i will get a UWA as i think that 18mm will be just nice.

    thanks for all your help. =)

    No you don't but do read up on shooting flash at night. How to balance background light with flash light. And borrow a flash diffuser will be nice. I recommend a big bounce card.
