In other news, CULES appears to have bought a bus.
Maybe I was right to be worried about them :-)
How are they going to find someone to drive it from Kilmarnock?
And at least as important, how are they going to get it MOTed before they have someone drive it here?
Indeed. I have a nasty feeling that eBay un-MOTd bus-buying from Kilmarnock might turn out to be quite a costly mistake...
Wouldn't a second-hand mini-bus have done?

Tbey actually bought the bus!?

Yes, they actually bought the bus. I consider it my own fault for encoraging them. They haven't paid for or collected the bus yet though...

CULES are silly.

I hope that they checked with the Senior Treasurer first...
Do they have anyone who is qualified to drive it? How much will the insurance cost? Does it increase the club's liability in any way?
And are they planning to update their website at any point?

Just had another thought: What would the Motor Proctor think about it?
I know there are a fair number of students who can drive cars, but qualified PSV drivers?!

On a bit of light reserach...
Road tax: £500/yr.
Requires and HGV1 licence.

We knew all that before we bought the thing. There are over 50 of us.
Sheeesh, girl, do you think we don't research these impulse buys? ;-)

well, given the evidence...
