Dates to consider:

  • Fringe Games (Christchurch, New Zealand) - 8th to the 11th of September 2000 -
    includes Unicycle 100m sprint.

      It has been suggested that the New Zealand Unicycling convention be
      timed to co-incide with the Fringe Games.
    
  • Olympic Games (Sydney, Australia) - September 15, 2000 until the end of
    September - includes NO Unicycle events.

      Now, I personally would *like* the Unicon to clash with the Olympics,
      because it would give me somewhere to hide, but the organisers might
      like to consider the impact of the Olympics in a similar time-zone (1 or
      2 hours away, I think - depending on daylight savings - which is being
      renegotiated for the Olympics.)

This may not help much, but a chance to go ride unicycles in China would
override any other vacation or work plans I could imagine. I don’t care when it
is - I’m there.

However, it would be really nice to be able to go to NUC in the US as well. As
it takes almost 2 weeks to get to Beijing (via Trans Siberian, stopping at least
once), it would be great if there were some real overlap between the events
rather than back to back as in the past. How about Aug 20 or so?

I am now negotiating with tht eorganinzers and it looks like Unicon X should
start on August 2. This seems to be the bnest date to avoid all conflicts.

Leave all speculation aside for a while until you hear an official announcement.

School starts on August 12th in a part of germany, so there will be no real
chance to go for many germans.

Jack and Christian …

UNICON IX took place in late August / early September.

There were lots of Germans there. Do you now feel that it was a bad time for
German participation? Could that participation have perhaps been doubled if not
for a late August start?

I really hope that we can nail down a “Confirmed” date for this event SOON. It
would really help for all National event planners around the world to have a
date to announce at their events this summer.

I’m sure many share my excitement about UNI racing once again along the Great
Wall and riding in front of “The Forbidden City.”
