The Students' Union should fund all clubs equally. Only Clubs participating in BUCS get transport to games/competitions paid for.

Extra Information: It's not fair that only clubs who participate in BUCS should have things like transport paid for by the SU. Many clubs who work hard and excel in their sports do not get this funding simply because they are not in BUCS. This causes clubs to have to inflate their memberships to be able to afford to go to competitions which in turn raises the barrier to entry for students who may not be as financially secure.
