I've always wanted to hold a awards where we could ask members and RCM&E readers to vote for their hobby favourites in a number of categories. I think it's important to recognise good service and good products so would you mind spending a few moments to tell us your....
Best high street retailer
Best mail order supplier
Best UK distributor
Best Kit (given lead and advanced publicity times , lets say any kit introduced say, in the last 2 years) 

Just leave a post below with your votes in the four categories above. We'll count the votes on Mon 11th Jan and get in touch with the winners to let them know that they're the 2009 winners! We'll award the winners a special framed certificate in recognition - something that can hopefully find pride of place in their establishment.
You can say why you like the companies you've voted for if you'd like to of course...... 
Come on, let's give some recognition to those who work hard and deserve it
