The organisers of a festival in Maryborough have just sent me the following email. I am passing it on as requested.
Apparently the prize pool is valued at about $1000.
I hope to see lots of other unicyclists there.

p.s. for insurance purposes I am pretty sure that participants will need to be Australian Unicycle Society members.
p.p.s. If there are not enough people to free-mount giraffes then I am sure that we can get them to allow assisted starts.
