Unicon X - Website is now up!

Great news! The Unicon X website is now live at

Unicon X: The Tenth World Unicycling Championship and Convention is happening
August 1 through 8, 2000, in Beijing, China.

In working closely with the sponsors and organizers of Unicon X, we are
impressed with the effort and planning that have already been put into this
convention. It promises to be an exceptional event!

The opportunity to attend Unicon comes up only every two years. And Unicon has
never before been hosted by the People’s Republic of China.

The eight days will be filled with all the Unicon events-races, standard skill,
freestyle, pairs, coasting, ultimate wheel, relay, MUni, marathon, and unicycle
basketball and unicycle hockey tournaments. There also will be plenty of open
gym time, and plenty of time to meet people and share skills and information.

Plus, the organizers of Unicon are setting up many optional tours and special
events for participants. Can you picture yourself riding your unicycle on the
Great Wall of China? Or possibly riding in world-famous Tiananmen Square? The
only way you can hope to make this happen is to be there!

We encourage you to join us and over 700 other unicycle enthusiasts from all
over the world who will visit China this summer for Unicon.

Much of the information you need to plan your trip is available at
http://www.unicycling.org/iuf/unicon10/ And keep in mind that it’s a good idea
to tack a few extra days onto your trip if you can. There are plenty of things
to see and do in the fascinating city of Beijing or in other areas of China!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at UniconX@Gilby.com

For all the details including the schedule, registration form, and FAQ, make
sure you check out the Unicon X website: http://www.unicycling.org/iuf/unicon10/
Check back often, as there will be many updates as more information is made

We look forward to seeing you at Unicon X!

-Your International Unicon X Organizing Team

P.S. Please spread the word about the Unicon X and the website.

I reaffirm that Andy did make the difference in China, and kept working hard
after the trip.

Gilby has been extremely active and effective afterwards. Apparently they make
an excellent team.

There are now three signatures, a Director, the President, and the
Vice-President. Apparently you two have indeed done a great job.
