    surely they just cannot turn off Blue Bullet on its last day.
    Its going to be a big part of Mt Bullers history.
    They have to have some sort of farewell.
    who gets to ride the last chair?
    do they get the village crew to ride it one last time.?
    do they run it for one last lap with no guests riding it?
    Do all the BSL staff, skidoos and groomers form a guard of honour on Bourke st as it does its last run?
    do they unload it for one last time in front of everyone. ?
    Dave Clark .. your thoughts

    Surely it should troll everybody and break down on the last turn and require them to get the winches out.

    I mean, it's not like it ever did that over the last 30 odd years ... :whistle:

    who gets to ride the last chair?
    whoever gets through the gate at 4:59:59!

    do they get the village crew to ride it one last time.?
    who are the village crew?

    do they run it for one last lap with no guests riding it?
    well they need to run it to get the chairs off

    Do all the BSL staff, skidoos and groomers form a guard of honour on Bourke st as it does its last run?
    great idea. we also have something a bit more spectacular planned ;)

    do they unload it for one last time in front of everyone. ?
    no we will unload it under a giant tarpaulin so the public can't see the agony, like when they put a horse down at the races
