Hi all,
I am thinking about entering a few models in SMW 2009, but as most of you may know it is a two day event. Unfortuanetely i can only attend the Saturday. My question is: Will the judges let me remove my models after they have judged, if i pre-arrange it?
Hope you can help

As someone who has been at the head of a club doing contests for just shy of 20 years, let me chime in..
When does the judging take place? If it's on the second day and you leave before then, you will get nothing for your efforts. If it's on the first day, do you have someone to pick up any potential awards? It becomes costly to a club to mail awards out. If you do place and take your model away, and even if you don't, if there are specail awards, they will likely be judged towards the end. Again, you stand to miss out.
If you don't want to compete. see if you can enter as a display only, not for judgingh.
In any case, check with the organizers.
