CRANTOCK BALE PUSH SMASHED ALL ITS RECORDS WHEN MORE THAN 130 TEAMS OF SMILING PEOPLE ENJOYED AN INCREDIBLE FUN EVENING ROLLING STRAW BALES THROUGH THE VILLAGE.
The amazing Bale Push ’12 Hour Endurance’ record making success kick-started the day with its curtain raising 6.30am start.
September 10th 2011 – Well that was a hectic Bale Push! Every year they thank the volunteers helping on the night, the organisers and the competitors but what about me? These helpers know what they are getting into and if you are daft enough to compete, any praise would be wasted on you anyway. Never a word of thanks for me, I spend weeks being driven around meeting people and spreading the word and, frankly, no-one would turn up on the night if I wasn’t there lending my star power to the occasion. I was thinking about this as I watched everyone clearing up the village this morning, they’d be ruined without me. Anyway I’m rewarding myself for my hard work with a trip to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup, which should be relaxing.
I am furious! In fact I dare say I’m the angriest straw based person in Britain right now. Someone, somewhere (probably Scotland) has set up a Scottish Bale Pushing Championships! I don’t know where to begin, for a start I am entitled to a cut of all Bale Push revenues which I put in my highly reputable Barclays account, as this new Bale Push has not been authorised by me, they won’t be paying me my hard earned commission. No doubt they know this, we all know about Scots and money....
