Stourport the 4th(?)

Having juggled with shifts and persauded a college work the evening for me I (
and Paul) got to go to the latest Stourport unicycle meet on saturday. New
venue, new town ( kiddiminster, the Harry Chesire school on Habberly road). The
new hall is MUCH better for Hockey, bigger, better floor, no wall bars and gym
kit cluttering up the walls. Even a small balcony for spectators.

There was a very chilled feel to the day, the only thing that happened at a pre
deterimned time was the Hockey, other stuff like games and races and workshops
occured when someone felt like running them. Stuart tested a few more people for
USA level patches , Roger sold some saddles and uni bits and bobs, Alan fell off
and hurt his wrist. How is it feeling now Al?

Thanks to the bigger hall Hockey was plyed by three teams of six , Will, Scott
and the Stourport high schol kids , v Roger, Mark W Leigh and some others v Paul
, myself, Kayleigh, little Paul, little Mark and David. Playing each team twice
gave everybody a good practise , The lack of sticks meant that every stick was
used in every game…just as well there were no breakages. The final team won,
we would have been called team wibble if we had had a name.

Next month the uni meet is not in Stourport, Rockets Birthday Hockey day will be
happening instead. Uni meet returns to Kiddiminster for the final meet of the
winter seris in April

I fractured it but I’m getting a fair amount of tea and sympathy. Driving the
20 miles home was, in retrospect, dumb - but there were no mishaps. Thanks
for asking.

I don’t suppose I’ll make it to Rocket’s do.

Arrh, sympathy, sympathy, T,T. Hope it mends fast and with no long term effects.
Also hope it doesn’t put Mary off her nice new uni. Guess you’ll be keeping
those wristguards then…

Ouch. I bet it hurt taking that wristguard off - i find it hard enough taking
mine off without a fractured wrist. :frowning:

BTW, for anyone concerned about ineffectiveness of wristguards, Alan hurt
his wrist before wearing the wristguard and was using the guard afterwards
for support.

I’m sure unicycling is much safer than riding a horse - Mary’s still into
horseriding after a nasty accident last year so I’m sure this won’t put her
off unicycling. Besides, we all know that Alan falls off his unicycle more
than most. :wink:

Re: Stourport the 4th(?)

Just pushing myself more than most (rather than the pedals)…

I don’t think unicycles are ever likely to best horses in Mary’s affections, but
she does still want to learn.

It took ages and a lot of Oo! Ah! to get the wrist guard off. Given my poor
balance do you reckon I could convince Roger to give me safety gear in return
for acting as permanent proof of its effectiveness? >>;-)
