Its tough to answer your question when you already said that you have attended
outdoor shoots 'yet you dont know the set up'.
Most (if not all) organized shoots in CS prepare the wardrobe and selection of location.
Some include reflectors and other additional items if they are available.

Your Personal Equipment is up to you, no one can tell you what lens, filter etc to use.
A flash is good to have. It depends on the location as well as what you want to
achieve in your final product.

Basically you need:
1. your camera of course
2. a walk-around lens (17 to 85mm or more).
3. a zoom lens to capture distant object
4. an external flash for fill in light even in day time (build in flash too limited)
5. a steady tripod to avoid motion blur in low light condition
6. UV and/or CPL filter
7. a bag to put all these gears
8. alot of patience and practice

The list could go on....
Have fun

Those would be more of a stand and take quick snaps. You'd have to get the idea of where to position yourself for a good angle, get the timing right, focus as well as exposure....

So before you actually go for such events, I'd advise you to practise with the camera and get the hang of it first... make sure you are able to get the exposures and compo right....

This depends on the organiser(s) and how they arrange the time.

This is an interesting point that I recently thought about.
During some of my shoots, I do encounter selfish photographers who refuse to
give you 'space'. They 'hog' the spot. This, to me is a matter of attitude and professionalism.
In my case, I'd rather not cause a racket, unless I really loose my cool.

The best scenario is when you are in a position, take a few frames, and move away for others to get a chance. If everyone does this, it will be a fun day, everybody goes home happy.
