20150307 The Aftermath from the Martinborough Bull Ride

It’s amazing just how much dust gets generated from a bull ride. These are pictures of what things looked like after the Pukemanu Martinborough Bull Ride. It took a while to clean the dust off, fortunately I’ve had to do this before so I know a few shortcuts. Definitely glad that everyone could hear the event this year.

The secret to dealing with dirty cables is to drag them across the lawn for a bit. Plus leaving them to lay in the hot sun whilst laid out straight also deals with kinks.

For the speakers and other kit, the brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner makes short work of this task. Luckily PA compression drivers have dust filters on them, so it’s just a matter of removing the surface dust.
