You don't need a bike stand. They will have racks for your bike. The easiest way is to hang your bike off it by the seat, with the front wheel facing out.
A towel is a great idea. The water depends on where the tri is. I don't generally bring water, because it takes up quite a bit of space, and there likely won't be much room between the bikes.
You'll also need to set up your shoes (either just running shoes, or cycling and running), socks if you want them, your helmet, sunglasses (if you want them) and any other clothes you are planning on wearing. Keep in mind - the more clothes you put on/take off/change, the longer your transition time will be.
Good luck & have fun!!! What distance race is it?
