STOLEN - Bertie Bat
« on: October 06, 2010, 07:32:24 pm »
As expected during our BEC 75th dinner persons unknown removed the large Bertie Bat from the Belfry porch.

We half expected some practical joke and found it quite funny :)

However.......... Please could we either A. Have him back, B. Tell us where he is or C. Send us a ransom note.

Bertie is special to us so please make sure he is safe.

Cheers

Stu.

If sending a ransom note, please remember that it should be amusing.  If any help is needed, Simon Richardson of the Wessex writes a good ransom note. :thumbsup:

Could do a treasure hunt to find this Berty fellow.

Just received a threatening message and terrorist video link, copied in its entirety. Very chilling. I think they're serious. Clearly the work of professionals.

Noooo.... stay strong Bertie, do you hear? You be strong, you survive... You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.

PS. Superb ransom video :)

It is good video but I fear the BEC are not taking it seriously enough.
Dont you guys have to "publicly admit" a few things first.

IIRC saying it was a " superb ransom video" wasnt on the list  :coffee:

I fear Bertie may never be found otherwise.  :weep:

Probably the best posting on UKC ever.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

If anyone from the BEC wants to borrow a bat detector to track Bertie down, let me know.

 WE DO NOT NEGOCIATE WITH TERRORISTS, WE WILL HOWEVER FIND THEM AND "NEUTRALIZE" THE PROBLEM.


 Just to let you know, this was recorded at the Belfry,,, so Don't F**k with the B.E.C.

Yes - most amusing - I'm sure that there are at least six trigger words here that the men who work in the circular building in Cheltenham will be having a really good laugh about over an evening of vodka & beetroot nibbles!

Never, ever piss of a BEC girlie,

If they have any sense I would return it and retain my anonimity. You can then always confess in 10 years time in Tavs next book.

Henry Bennett and Ben Selway made the Bertie for the BEC.  I personally don't think many people give a toss but I know Ben and Henry do.  Good video and a lot of time put into it.  Thought something like this must have been up given normal things pinched are held to ransom straight away and not 2 weeks later.

1) we know who took it had a van
2) We know you cut the wires securing it the week before it was pinched
3) we have CCTV in the club car park
4) I don't give a toss who has it.

P.S. I think that it is Chris and Carmen in the video... correct build and size of person.  Bat most likely local still... BEC keep your eyes out for him.

Well done good video. x :)
