Other super volunteers who made the event a success were, Wilbert Hollinger who mentored Richard and Paul through there first event. Ric Gamble who helped set up & take down alongside Richard McCourt, Alan Gartside for printing the maps and Colin Smith for delivering them, Mark Pruzina, Sharon Dickenson and Geoffrey Collins registration for other techy background stuff.
