just eyeballing players' shots?

I find a lot of people just assume that anybody could be sent out to spot with no instruction. I've seen a lot of problems over the years with spotters wandering around while people are trying to throw, making incorrect rulings, etc. I lot of people actually prefer not to have spotters, sometimes it is less hassle to just look for the discs. I know the first time I volunteered to help at a PDGA event I was a noob, and they sent me out to spot with no instruction. I had no more idea than the man on the moon what I was doing and got yelled at, first for moving looking for a disc while the rest of the card waited for me to stop wandering around, then for not looking for a disc until the entire card threw and not being able to find someones disc. It was frustrating.
You might want to think about giving the spotters some directions, especially if there are any OB rulings on the holes they are spotting.

Let me enhance Ron's explanation by saying, you can bring anything that you'll be able to get out of the way quickly in the event a disc is headed your way. Please also refrain from bringing a cooler full of beer, it is not allowed during PDGA events and I don't want any of the players making a stink about our spotters getting wasted (we had an incident a couple years ago at the mid-natls) so please also refrain from getting wasted (until after the event) if that is what you want to do.
