Good day ~playing trains at Model Trains in Petersfield event

IMG_5283We had an early start this morning (7am) to load Martin H & my car from the club store at MVMH. David P & Ben R assisted and then went on to load Buroklammer into  Ben & Davids cars

Matt was there at the hall with doors already unlocked at 7.30ish Most layouts were up and operational by 9.

There was a flow of visitors at 10am when we opened, which continued until midday, but with the lovely weather in the afternoon numbers never recovered.

Everybody, members and visitors alike seemed to enjoy themselves, which is the way to judge such an event. All layouts performed well. Attendance was down on last year, but it looks like financially we covered our costs (S/H sales were fairly good)- all subject to Graham checking things out!

Philipa did an excellent job on the refreshments and David our “new” Chairman presented her with some flowers as a small token of our appreciation .

We  closed at 4pm and were packed & loaded by just gone 5pm. We were able to unload at MVMH prompt at 6pm with the last Ballet Class leaving.

All in all a good day.

Good Luck to Nick with him wearing the organiser hat for Model Trains in the Valley on 25th October in MVMH
