Re: Nintendo Show
The Show was great!! We went to the 1:00 show. Everyone looked really good.
Unfortunatly, we are so new to the club that I hardly know anyone’s name .
Lots of ages were represented and everyone rode with good form and style.
There were lots of people, but we mannaged to get about three feet away from the
floor area. The kids squeezed to the front. The show took place outside of the
Rain Forest Cafe in a courtyard with balconies on the second and thirs floors.
I was suprised by the team work. At the regular open practices hardly anyone
seemed to spend time practicing group skills. I do know that the T.C.U.C
really worked hard putting in lots of extra practice nites for the show.
Everyone was dressed in a Nintendo shirt, black bike shorts, and had white
wheels on their unis.
I really do not have the vocabulary or expierence to describe the show, so I
guess someone else will have to supply a detailed run down.
I really liked the mock contest which showed off many intricate moves in
ballance and speed used to mount the unicycles.
I also especially enjoyed a part where three people were ballanced while
standing with both feet on the left side of their unicycles. When they
crossed their arms and still remained ballanced, I was amazed! The only thing
I can imagine, is that they must be able to shift their internal organs. VERY
Constance Cotter rode the 16’ unicycle. The roped off area was expanded to give
her room. The unicycle was pushed upright by four people. The top of the
unicycle leaned against the first floor balcony while the bottom was braced by
the people holding it. Constance climbed to the top and got ready. Just as she
was about to start, the Rain Forest Cafe let loose with a peal of surround sound
thunder which put me even more on edge. I hoped the thunder would not bother
her. She started accross the coutryard. I told my wife NOT to take a flash
picture. Constance made it! The people anchored the base while she climbed down.
Oh, I guess the rest of the family liked the show too, Jan
