Dear all is it really that close to the show...? Better get my organising head on then. Seriously though it REALLY is that close to the show and we are in full organising mode. May 22<SUP>nd</SUP> 2011 is our 26<SUP>th</SUP> Exhibition and despite the school throwing me a curved ball by increasing the hire price we still feel we can organise a unique event . The booking forms for tables will go out on Monday and we have not increased the booking fees. This will encourage the traders to return to us again and allow them to be competitive.
So what can you do to help us. Well we need volunteers to assist us laying out the tables on SATURDAY 21<SUP>st</SUP> . A hard working, loyal ( I like to think), small happy group of helpers usually turn up to be abused, flogged and generally worked to death by me. Only joking. We normally turn up at 12 noon and prepare the halls for the next day. It takes about 2 hours and then we retire to the pub for general merriment and much falling down. We then rise at 5.30 am and return to site to greet the masses. We haven’t missed one yet but Angela is much better than an alarm clock.
So we need the following:
Volunteers on SATURDAY 21<SUP>st</SUP> to assist in laying tables out. Putting up posters etc.
Volunteers to help us put the tables away on SUNDAY after the show. This is hard work but the more help we get the easier and quicker we get finished .
Volunteers to sell raffle tickets on SUNDAY 22<SUP>nd</SUP><SUP>. </SUP>You should be polite, well presented and trustworthy. (That lets most of us out!) Prizes will be announced nearer the day, when I’ve decided what they will be LOL
Volunteers to man (or woman of course) the doors before the exhibition opens on SUNDAY to show traders to their positions and ensure only traders showing passes enter the halls.
Volunteers to assist on the car park before the show opens on SUNDAY directing traffic. (You get a nice yellow jacket with this job) We did use Andrew Smith one year but he started colour coding the cars.
You won’t be expected to work all day as I know you want to get your hands on the goodies on offer but if you can spare a couple of hours to help I would be very grateful. What do you get for all this undying loyalty to your club.....respect. ( Oh and a free pass to the show).
Please do not volunteer if you are going to let us down as I have to organise a rota for the day and I like yourselves wish to see the show. Last year I spent most of the day on the car park or in the toilet sorting out loo paper. If you wish to volunteer to help please PM me and I will give you more details.
I would ask that if you want to help you must let me know the week before the show as we often get people volunteering on the day which is nice of them but by then I have all the help I need.
We aim to provide you with a first class exhibition and with your help we can.
I will be sorting out a list of hotels in the area soon and posting this up shortly and anyone is welcome to join us in the pub ( The Elizabeth Arms on the Saturday night)
