I have been planning to go to the NUC this summer being that it is fairly close
to home, well, a neighboring state.
1st Problem/question Being my first one should I sign up for any events? I can
basically only ride forward with gradual turns and free mounts.
2nd I am only 16 and i was planning on going on my own, and taking the train up,
my parents are all right with this, but I have to have a chaperone.
3rd Lodging and transport. I would like to find at least one room mate to share
a room, probably at the Hyak Conference Center
Thanks in advance for any help, Jeff Sargeant Univent

First, sign up for all events that only require riding forward and gradual
turns. This means the track. Then, if you are interested in learning things like
one foot riding, sign up and see if you can learn it. Not showing up for events
you’ve registered in shouldn’t cause any trouble. Most of the participants at
these NUCs are playing for fun, just to see how well they can do. Though in your
age group there are others who practice a lot and are real serious, you should
mostly compare yourself to the riders who have put in a similar amount of
practice as yourself.
I recommend for new attendees to sign up for everything that’s not an artistic
event. Only sign up for artistic if you plan on putting an act together. Try the
MUni stuff, try everything else.

There should be lotsa people looking to share rooms. I recommend an email to Al
Tepper, who may or may not be able to keep track of people seeking rooms, and
occasional posting to the newsgroup to look for roommates.

It’s like this, kid:
When you tell your parents “Don’t worry, nothing’s going to happen” you’re
