of the world.There might be a raffle or Tombola with some vaguely unicycle
related stuff as prizes.

help.

Hi Sarah,

The supplied e-mail address is not working (swum@uni…)

Apparently the route is only 10 miles further than Kidderminster so hope to attend, no idea about journey time.

Keith

hi keg i will email sarah and tell her the address is not working.I am not sure if she would want her normal email address broadcast over the web so i will do it for you.

This is cool! So there are now uni meets in Kidd, Manchester and Exeter.

I live in Newcastle, am still at school, and have not attended a Uni Meet yet!!! - due to clashing dates etc :angry:

This year my aim is to attend as many as possible (but I have GCSEs!! :angry: )

I would love to come down and meet up with the uniers in the South in ‘real life’. Maybe next time!

Hope it goes well, and i will be waiting for the pics! :slight_smile:
