Yeah, we're trying to get non-unicyclist people from the area to come and watch-so far, we've just gotten some posters from Horny Toad and put them up aroud school and around town.(Freeport)
Hopefully there will be a good turnout...

I live in Freeport, so this is really awesome, but anyway, see you there-
