Ditto : Stick Bag close by, easy to access by reach and feel alone. Having to turn your eyes to it is counter-productive.

Also, in the Stick Bag, keep only the sticks in the size you like ( and possibly just the one brand that plays best for you ) . You would thereby minimize failure.

If you need to reach for Mallets or Brushes put those in an easy to access place, too, but not where your most used sticks are. You could think you're grabbing sticks when, in fact, you're getting Brushes ... know what I mean? If you're not playing any music requiring Brushes or Mallets, put those aside such that all you have at your disposal would be only what's needed to succeed for that one event.

Lastly, loosen-up and move with the groove ( in a manner of speaking ). Chances are the ensemble will relax enough to put out their best in sync with the drums - as it ought to be. If you can move fluidly, but with self-control, I doubt you'll drop a stick. And don't forget to breathe ...
