NUC 2000 workshops

I am looking for suggestions for workshops at the upcoming NUC convention and
also for volunteers to put them on. At this point we have: Self mounting
giraffes and big wheels - John Foss Level skills and testing - Andy Cotter
coordinating MUni riding - John Foss Beginning riding - Dave Matthews Any others
would be appreciated as I have no idea what people want or who is able to teach.

Thanks for any input.

Hey, that’s awesome! We’ll see you in Michigan!

You and Yuuichiro should come to Cedar Point with us afterward. You’ll love it!

Its funny that you mention that, because just yesterday I found the CD with
Peter Tosh riding a unicycle on the cover. It was pretty funny.

I’m pretty sure last year there were workshops on putting together freestyle
routines, which I was very interested in, but I didn’t make it to nationals. I
would love to go to a workshop like that if there are other people that may have
missed that chance.

Is there a worksop scheduled for UW s and 2-wheelers? Yuuichiro Kato can run
this, and I can assiste with translation and support.

I have a strong interest in the 2-wheeler since it seems I am the first to
ever build and ride it. I am curious if anyone know of anyone who has
ridden it before
1979/1980, whcih is when I first built and rode mine in Japan.

Jack, Are there enough 2-wheelers out there to make it practical to schedule a
workshop on them? Would it work to put up an announcement that those with
biverticycles meet at a certain time/place for sharing tips? We have 2 boys in
RTUC who own them and are learning to ride them, but it helps that Sem is
loosely connected with RTUC for them to see/buy them.

I’m not as knowlegeable about the various types of unis out there so have NO
clue what a UW is unless it’s an ultimate wheel. That might have more appeal to
the majority of riders, but I don’t mind trying to schedule either or both if
you think there’s enough interest.

I don’t know, but I ask around in Japan. Probably Yuuichiro will bring his.
Today we have meet of UX participants and I’ll announce it.

intesreted.

Yes, of course it is. I hope lots of people bring them.

It’s a unicycle with two wheels. One stacked on top of another where the top
wheel is driving the bottom wheel that is in contact with the ground. To ride
forward, you have to pedal backwards and this goes against all instincts and
reactions that a unicyclist knows to stay on a unicycle. Check out some photos
of me on mine at: http://www.gilby.com/unicycling/photos/2wheeler/
