I'm greatly considering going to FLUCK. The payments for everything is completely out of my pocket. It would be around 1700$ total package for me. Though this isn't a great amount of money, it's a huge set back when I need a new car, laptop, and just money for college by fall 08'. What I need from you guys is motivation. Who is going to be there? Can I find a list of the people registered? Will it be worth the money for only 5 days? How are the "staying over" conditions? Is there freetime where you could just chill with other unicyclists and maybe start your own game or little competition? Are there any street spots in that area to maybe hit up once? How many people are bringing cameras? Will anybody be making a film like the UNIcon dvd from this competition? And who would want me there in the first place? (I figured that would kind of be important, I don't want to go if no one really wants me there.) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
Shaun, forget FLUCK, come to BUC! it’ll be cheaper, you’ll get to see some sick street riding and meet some great people, hey, even Kevin Mc will be there, so you won’t be the only guy from across the pond.
Then again, FLUCK is a bigger event but I’m not sure how street orientated it is.
It’s nothing fixed now but normaly we will be at Fluck with several pro and semi pro cameras to produce a FLUCK DVD. From Unicon DVD filming we get a lot of ideas how to improve many things to make it much better. So from the video side you should be satisfied with the equipment at FLUCK I think
I also heard some rumors that there is a small chance to make a second try for a live stream from FLUCK Areal
As I know there is indoor and outdoor street and trial parcour and both are big ones and very professional. But I still told you that hahaha.
BUC is for sure an awesome event but at FLUCK should be at least the best street / trial /Muni riders from all over Europe.
Both would be best for sure but would be 3400 $ and so double out of pocket.
You can’t really do that around at least where I am. Demos don’t really go down. I don’t think the U.S. is as open to it as other countries seem to be. All you can hope for is rich parents that are nice, or work your butt off. haha.
Thanks for the list, I didn’t see too many people I knew. Looks good.
Though I’m not into street, all my fellowunifriends from the Netherlands that are commin’ just ADORE you!!!
Isn’t it a possibility to earn some money by lettin’ ya hit by some cars or even ridin’ ya over at the event?? (hahaha)
This “trick” was too wicked… first couldn’t believe it was on purpose!!!
So … I think makin’ the right decision is easy.
( Cya this summa)!!!
Well, if FLUCK is a 5-day convention, and BUC is a 2-day convention, and people may arrive a day early and stay a day late for BUC, then might people do the same for FLUCK? I think, between schooling, this would be a worthwhile and well-appreciated trip; ~7 days break from the ordinary, visiting a new town and making new memories. I’m waiting for UNICON in '08 to spend pocket money on a big unicycling trip…though MOAB is very tempting.
