Default Bury Clean-Up

A big thank you to TEAM OOPLE who managed to put Bury Members to shame for staying (or even turning up) to clean up after the National.
As for the racers who were asked to take their rubbish home........ well they won't be back will they.
Thanks again to the clean-up party.

Thanks Rog, I don't think we got away till well after 8, but it was a bit of a laugh - I didn't realise just how much stuff there was to sort out though, it was crazy. It was a great weekend tho, track was great and the rodeo bull was genius.

this was talked about between a few people over the weekend, and before we start i took all my rubbish with me.

but i can from a point of view see why some people left there's, who wants a long drive home with a car full a 2-3 day old bag of rubbish thats been sat in the sun festering and smelling. surely some of the money given to clubs to run a national could be used to hire a small skip at a cost of about £70?

when ever we ran a national/end of season at worcester i contacted the council about arranging a rubbish collection on the monday morning and they where more than happy as long as it was all collected and left in one place. also with today's recycling society and the local council's getting extra incentives from the goverment to recycle they would possibly supply free recycling bins for the weekend.

Burys situation is abit different from other clubs mr dyke, as they have pressures from a few people regarding the club being there.

as Jimmy said, it was a laugh putting everything away.. I finished up abit wet thanks to stu and jimmy trying to wrap me up in the gazebo sides, just after the downpour, cheers doods

ever need help again you can give me a shout.

There was an absolute shed load (quite literally) of bags in the field. I think we should have got a skip - though it's pretty bang on 100% certain it would have been set on fire the same night.
