Get well soon, John Drummond!

Hey, all. If you didn’t know, John Drummond (Mr Unicycle.com) hurt his
shoulder badly on Friday at the NUC.

I am sure many of us would love to send our well wishes, and so I am
starting this e-card. Just add your name and a quick word, maybe.
Here is mine:

John, it was great meeting your wonderful family. You are just as nice in
person as on the phone. Good luck with your recovery. Love, David Stone

John, I always read your posts, bud. Feel better, you’ll have more fun
that way. Thanks for the info you given me over the years, and I look
forward to more. Jake Cooper

John,

Mary and I and the boys have been and are praying for your recovery. It’s
at times like these that we’re thankful that God gave us two of so many
things. We’ve also lifted up Amy as she has to put up with you for the
next many weeks.

All the best, The Edwards Bunch

Best wishes on a speedy recovery. I “wheel” ride the new Coker several
miles for you.

Joe and Donna

Hey John,

How’d it happen? In the line of duty (on one wheel) I’d guess. Hope you’re
back in the saddle before too long and the best of wishes for a speedy
recovery. Neil

Get well soon, John.

By the way, did you get to keep the baton you flattened during the fall?

All the best,

John,

Do get well soon.

From Raphael Lasar (a customer who always appreciates your kindness and
assistance and who hopes to visit Georgia sometime) Matawan, NJ

John,

Best wishes for a quick healing. You helped get me into unicycling. You are well thought of

Sincerely,

Rod Wylie :slight_smile:

John,

I sure hope your shoulder heals soon. You and Amy were so helpful at the
NUC regarding unicycle adjustments, parts, etc… and driving your booth
and setup to NUC all the way from Atlanta. - Couldn’t happen to a nicer
guy, so do get well soon (and then tell us how to avoid that maneuver!):

John, hope you are feeling much better soon, after all, your way of doing
business leaves lots of us smiling even as we tip over (just can’t blame
the equipment any more!)

Dear friends and fellow unicyclists:

Your kind words and well-wishes are very much appreciated. This community
has become an extended family to us, and we are honored to be a part of
you. Thank you welcoming us. Our boys had a fabulous time at the
convention, and we’re all deeply grateful to our fine Canadian hosts. It
was a first class event!

Amy said I should have won a medal for the most spectacular fall of the
convention. Fortunately it happened during my last race of the track and
field events; unfortunately my relay team was disqualified because of it.
The emergency room doctor in Toronto called it a shoulder separation,
prescribed a sling, and said it would require 4 weeks to heal. My local
doctor agrees.

At week 5 I’m starting a year of training. I want to finish at least one
race ahead of my two close friends who beat me to the finish line in
Toronto: Dirk Iwema and David Ramos. When you’re on the line, about to
race, there’s an understood comaraderie and mutual respect for each other.
To ease the tension, someone quipps “On my last race I came within 9
seconds of beating John Foss’s world record.” There’s nervous laughter,
then mounting and holding the starting gate poles, leaning and hopping to
spin the wheel, getting the pedals in position for a fast start. Before
the starting pistol is fired, the participants will shake hands and
genuinely wish each other success. Win or lose, it is a privilege to race
among these people. I’ll be back!

Thank you also for supporting our small enterprise. Our goal is to serve
you well and to be good stewards of the funds that are entrusted to us.
We ask for divine guidance every day. Next week we’re moving to a new
3,200 square foot warehouse of our own that will combine all our
operations under one roof. This will enable us to stock more inventory,
more models and parts, and ship products more timely. Please be patient
with us during the coming week. We’ve hired a moving company to help us
‘shoulder’ the load
:slight_smile:

Again, thanks for your thoughtful notes. Please join us for a ride when
you’re in the Atlanta area.

Warmest regards, John, Amy, Casey, Zach and Sawyer Drummond

Hey John,

I was very sorry to hear about your accident! Hope the pain is down and
you’re well on the way to a fine healthy shoulder again.

I dislocated my shoulder several years ago, so I know a little about what
you’re going through (although I was much younger at the time, it would be
a lot less fun at our age now…)

Anyway, God bless ya! Hope your recovery is quick!

Greg

The answer is to not fall down.

Since I’m reading up thru my inbox from oldest to newest messages I don’t
know if somebody already answered this, but John crashed in the Relay
race. He was the third leg rider in his team, nearing Dirk Iwema but not
there yet. He was in the middle of the curve on the track when something
caused him to lose control and go down. He tucked for a roll, but landed
hard on his shoulder, causing a shoulder separation.

I was standing nearby, at the long jump competition area and heard the
crash, but only saw the end part of it. Nobody seemed to know how the
relay baton got the dent, but it was a victim in the crash as well.

It seems more adults got hurt at the 2001 NUC than kids. As an officer,
I’m happy with that. I also helped out by being one of the injuries,
saving someone else the trouble… :slight_smile:

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to John and family.

Amy, I’ve got your sunglasses…

Speedy Recovery!!

John,

I saw this nice letter that David Stone started up for you, and just had to write you a quick note.

I’m really sorry that you were injured at the Convention! I want to send you my personal wishes for a quick, speedy, and painless recovery!

I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Keep those unicycles coming. You guys do a great job at providing us unicyclists with whatever we need!

I’ve been really enjoying my MUni. Thanks you for donating it to the raffle!

That doesn’t sound very thoughtful. You should be happy when less kids
than adults got hurt. Subtle difference…
