First annual Southeast MUni Fest, May 4-6, 2007, in Asheville NC.
We will be having a downhill MUni race in conjunction with the Mtn. Sport Festival on Saturday morning, with a trials demo that afternoon at the festival grounds. Friday and sunday will be group MUni rides, tentatively being Trace Ridge and Laurel Mountain, both in Pisgah National Forest. You should be able to find more info online about the trails.
Hello - This is Ben Richardson of Asheville. I’m a friend of Adam Masters and the mountain unicycling club of Asheville, WNC unicyclists. 2009 will be the third festival. It used to be held in the spring, but we decided to postpone the event until fall because we feel this is a better time to highlight the Asheville area. There is much more information online about the festival. The festival name has changed to the Asheville MUni Festival and there is information about it online at ashevillemunifest.webs.com
The dates are September 25- 27. Please send me an email if you have any questions.
Glad to hear that so many people are interested in the Festival this fall - September 25 - 27. Please spread the word! We’d love to have people of all ability levels come. You wouldn’t believe how great the riding is here. There is something here to challenge every rider!
Alright! I just signed up myself. Probably just me. I’ll be bringing my KH24 (sans KH/Schlumpf hub unfortunately, it’s back in Switzerland being repaired ), Nimbus/KH20 trials and Coker BigOne. I can bring my 5’ Sun giraffe if anybody is interested?
BTW: I’m looking at making a reservation at the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, any preference to which Facility Area? I’m seeing Big John, Hard Times and Bent Creek? I’m assuming everybody will want to be at Bent Creek right? Doesn’t look like a big rush to make a reservation as it looks like everything is available right now… Just thought maybe for those camping we could coordinate/split camping site costs; or at least try to book adjacent sites?
I live by the Campground. I don’t believe you can make reservations, but I will check today. Also, I love your idea about coordinating the campsite so that everyone is together. In the past, one of us has gone to the campground ahead of time and reserved campsites for everyone planning to come. Thanks!
We’re having a meeting this evening about the festival and will throw around some ideas. I’ll make sure I come back here and update everyone on what is decided.
