The Earley Risers win Bronze at SMW19

The Silver-themed Earley Risers stand beat off stiff competition to gain the Bronze Award in the Jesse Wright Trophy for the best club stand at SMW19.

Steve and Mick had most of the stand set up by 3pm, when Sean, Phil, Hugh and then Jeff arrived, followed by Peter. With all the models put out and labels displayed, the stand was ready to display. Tim and Les B joined us on Saturday.
Lastly, Roly made a surprise appearance - and joined us for the whole weekend!

Don't forget the volunteers

Although not visible for most of the weekend, Mark and Martin worked hard in the treasurer's office to ensure the monetary side of SMW19 went smoothly. Liz did sterling work as Front of House Manager for all 3 days. Steve and Mick helped with the set up on Friday morning/afternoon. While Geoff helped with the trade desk on Saturday pm. Without these volunteers, we would not have a show!
