This years OUI’06 will be held 4 June 06 at Nanaimo Park (the site of OUI’04) Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, starting at 1 pm. Please be there to register by 12:30. There will be no advanced registration - just at the site. For a map check out the OUI’04 site at http://carlroth.net/oui04/
We could not secure a suitable indoor facility so the event will be held outside and be subject to weather - if it rains it will be cancelled. As a result, the event will be scaled down with no new obstacle building, no trophies and no t-shirts. There will be prizes and a BBQ pool party that will be held only a couple of blocks from the event location.
If there is an entry fee it will small.
Basically it will be an informal trials event with a nice party afterwards.
Uhg! I wish i could go but all of my money is tied up in my trip to Niagra Falls for the filming party with Brian. If only it were a little later in the year. Oh well. I hope to see some great vids of you guys! have fun.
The event will have lines from beginner to expert. All lines 1 pt. - the most points wins. I am not expecting a large turnout as if it rains it will be cancelled. It will be more of a fun event. Next year if we can get a site similar to OUI’05 we will have a really serious comp.
Some of you may have noticed that we are trying to organize a similar event in quebec city. If you can’t find an indoor facility for 07, consider bringing the invasion to quebec (where we would use the circus school)! We could call it QUI! I’m seriously considering comming and convincing others to come with me… we shall see
Thanks for the info. The entire Kingston Crew will be coming up. We just added a new rider today as well. He learned to ride halfway down the street and he is very excited.
Good thing we have lots of unis’ at the house. Count 4, maybe 5 of us for sure. Don’t know if any will compete though. See you there!
A few of us locals are doing some unicycling for the community day event at Nanaimo Park (same location as the OUI competition) from around 2-3 in the afternoon. Jeff Groves is also planning to join us. After that we talked about heading off for a ride. Maybe some muni at Kanata Lakes. It’s all going to be very ad-hoc and highly dependant on the weather. I’m not sure what the deal is going to be with the community day thing if we get the thunder storm that is currently forecast. We’ll also be finishing up some of the new obstacles for the trials comp at some point during the day/night.
So really I’m just here to tell you that I have no idea what will end up happening, other than some of us might be going for a ride at some point during the day.
