Comeback talk a red flag for angry Bundy bull fest creditors

CREDITORS still owed thousands of dollars from Bundaberg's failed Beerfestabull have told of their "disgust" at hearing the organiser was apparently considering bringing back the event.

Clint Jensen still owes more than $50,000 to musicians, community groups, fire works and advertising companies following last October's event.

While he has been virtually uncontactable since last December, a post was made on the Beerfestabull Facebook page last week.

 

"Beerfestabull maybe (sic) returning to Bundaberg this year. Management is wanting the public's opinion on the matter. Who wants to see Bundaberg's largest event return - and why?"

That resulted in a barrage of comments from people still owed money.

"Would be a great day if you know that all the hard work is worth it, like being paid would be a good start," one wrote.

"Who can I resend the invoice to from last year?" said another.

Within minutes, the Facebook post had reached more than 70 comments.

The disgruntled Facebookers then noticed the comments regarding people still being owed money were quickly deleted, with the page being shut down shortly after.

Josh Freeman, secretary of the Bundaberg Apex Club, said the post had added insult to injury as his community group was still owed $6000.

"It's ridiculous," he said.

He claimed a cheque from Mr Jensen was banked on December 24 but bounced.

Attempts to contact Mr Jensen for comment were not successful.
