2006 British Unicycle Convention 13 12th - 14th May 2006

Hi Fellow Unicyclists
At last!! The official announcement that the BUC 2006 will be held in Scarborough. Details below! I'm sorry this has taken so long but with one thing and another (being ill with a flu bug for nearly 6 weeks doesn't help!!) getting people to confirm things is so frustrating!!

Pindar School & Leisure Centre
Moor Lane
Eastfield
Scarborough
North Yorkshire
YO11 3LX

There will obviously be more details soon on the website, but for now put the dates in your diaries and book the time off if you have too.
There will be all the usual things plus some amazing Muni-rides. Watch this space..............OK you can stop watching it now!

If you need more info and you can't wait, contacts are below

Organisers

Would be great if someone take Videos of that event and contribute a cut of it to unicycle.tv after. We are looking for Videos like that. A country convention gives a good impression how people like to ride in that country.
So if there is something who still know that he will be there with an Video Cam, please contact us under olaf@unicycle.tv

If last years Scarborough juggling and unicycle convention (at the same venue) is anything to by it’ll be outdoor camping.

Hopefully they’ll be time to go to the awesome local downhill and Roger can ride it with a seat this time

The website is up http://www.unicycle.org.uk/buc13/

The flyers that were being given out at SWUM last weekend have the wrong web address on.

The design's improvable but all the detail is there (and whoever put Tubbs & Edward as the picture for the local shops deserves a medal). I think (looking at the stuff thats up already) that some sensible recommendations need to be made, such as long trousers & sleeves when riding on the astroturf. That stuff strips skin like nothing else, being a mixture of sand and abrasive plastic 'grass', and it could be a nightmare if you keep falling onto it.

Loose.

BTW hall 1 would be nice
