Leo’s Bullet point review of BUC 6
Location & Venue
- Broli Performing Arts centre
- Mostyn, North Wales coast 20 miles from Chester
- Uni Pub Crawl Accidentally long and steep route, some game locals, & enough
lights between us to put a rally car to shame - back to hall to see if beer
had improved ability to pull off tricks (that’s when I must’ve picked up the
huge bruise on my arm).
Races etc. Officiated by Roger & Tim on a football field. Those with grippier
tyres (and pedals) had a distinct advantage. Several rounds Gladiators,
British Bulldog on unicycles WOW ! (try asking Sarah for an UK to US
Hockey in nearby leisure centre Teams picked out of a hat - good surface -
only 2 broken sticks and no broken people.
Show Compered by Tim (Foolery) included: Daves spectacularly technical 2
Diabolo act; Roger & Claire’s imaginative(!) pairs routine; Jamie showing
remarkable athletic prowess freemounting his 8ft giraffe without a run up
before juggling more balls than most on it; Max built up to riding a unicycle
whilst inside his sleeping bag
More beer and choclate fueled tricks practice + Kayleigh on rope and trapeze
showing that she can do more than just unicycle.
Car expedition via diversions and twisty roads to get to …
MUNI expedition Very hot weather. Split into two groups - I went with the
experienced crowd trying to keep up with Roger on his Muni and Max on Roger’s
brake-enabled Coker. Mostly good but often steep tracks with a technical and
largely walked scenic ascent (when we got a bit lost). Peter soon regretted
bringing the kitchen sink in his overloaded daysack and Rocketman had an
exploding Orange juice carton/camera equipment incident.
Return and recovery from MUNI
Business Meeting, Prizes, & a well supported raffle thanks to Pashley for
donating a “Virtual Unicycle” (i.e. an I.O.U. for one)
Thanks to the organisers Tim, Ali & Roger and to the centre staff (both
volunteers) Pedro & (oops didn’t catch his name).
