Cummins in Darlington have invited Stockton Unicycle club to go to their summer fate. We get invites all the time to do this, but this will be different. Cummins make big marine engines and have loads of heavy gear… and they are willing to let us play on it! They are even lending us their carpenters for a few days.
So on 16th July 2005 at the Cummins factory in Darlington we are going to run a Unicycle Trials competition on what potentially could be the best course seen in the UK. Everyone is invited, entry is free, food is free and potentially there will be even expenses to get there!
I thought you were running workshops at ellesmere port circus convention on the 16th of July.
I was looking forward to the workshop, can you clarify this for me.
yes, I am. I can not be in two places at once.
Our club does not need me to be there to run a stonking event, I think BUC proved that. They are a great organising team.
Count me in! I might have to get the train since i’m coming all the way from oxford! Will there be practice areas? I’m not quite sure I’m up to competition standard yet…
Thats great to know, thanks for clearing that up for me.
I look forward to seeing you at Ellesmere port, Pity I can’t be in 2 places at the same time either as I would love to go and watch the trials comp.
i am another who cant be in 2 places at once.
doing the manchester to blackpool ride that weekend so wont be able to make the comp.
That is the weekend before my appointment at hospital to hopefully get the all clear on the broken collar bone.
So I think I’ll come down. I should be able to get my parents camper van again for the weekend. I won’t do any mad jumping, but I’ll have a cycle!
So, aye, I’m interested!
Any more info at present? You mentioned “potential expenses” ?
How come you never asked me? My step dad actually asked me wether i wanted tickets or not seen so its his workplace. Can I come along then?
Me, I’m looking forward to the Ellesmere Port convention. It’s not often that things happen around here, at least since the Clocktower crashed and burned.
OH and except the unimeets that I co-organise and the circus club. Big things I meant.
Yes of course you are invited Trev!
More details will come later, but here is what I know at the moment. Start 9.30 am finish 4.00pm, food provided, access provided, trials course provided, some expenses available for travelling (Please PM me about this please)
That’s me just back from the train station where I purchased my return ticket to Darlington on Saturday.
I get there at 11:00 and my return train is at 18:36 so I’ll only miss a wee bit of the start and I’ll be able to stay at the end if any help is needed.
Loosemoose, any chance you could bring your Large Marge Muni so I can have a look? The pictures have had me salivating!!
I look forward to meeting and seeing you all there!
Roll on Saturday!!
is it just a day thing or is it the weekend
I misread my train times, I get there at 10:00, so will hardly miss anything (I hope) !!!
And Butty, read the thread!
The event actaully starts at 10.30 so this should be perfectly ok. We are working on getting the course built earlier, so it will be up and running by then or near to.
Here is the location of the Cummins Factory.
