Vancouver Island MUni Weekend Schedule of Events

Hey everybody, sorry for the long wait, but finally everything seems to be worked out for the first ever Vancouver Island Mountain Unicycle Weekend.

Some of the rides aren’t finalised because I’m not sure if the trails are still there, (i.e., the might have been torn down, or logged) and I’m not sure how difficult they are for beginner type riders. I also don’t have any lengths for the trails because they are just not known. I will try to get up and time myself to see how long it takes me to ride them. Don’t worry though, none of them are overly epic.

Anyway here’s the schedule as it stands right now:

Vancouver Island Mountain Unicycle Weekend Schedule of Events

-Thursday, August 21: ?

-Friday, August 22: Expert Ride: 9:30 am - Bucket of Blood, Cumberland… Intermediate/Beginner Ride: 9:30 am - North East Woods, Comox… Evening: UNiVERsE 2 Trailer Premier at Dylan’s house.

-Saturday, August 23: Expert Ride: 9:30 am - Mount Washington ride (maybe, haven‘t decided yet, since the lift costs money) … Intermediate/Beginner Ride: 9:30 am - TBA… Trials Barbecue 5:00 pm, Miracle Beach

-Sunday, August 24: Expert Ride: 9:30 am - Two Sheiks and a Dog, Sniper, Monkey Spank, Forbidden Plateau… Intermediate/Beginner Ride: 9:30 am - TBA… Evening - Burger Dinner at Edgewater Bistro in Comox (veggie, salmon, halibut, and beef)

-Monday, August 25: ?

The actual event is from August 22-24 but I’m just letting the people know that are coming early or staying later, that nothing is really planned.

Anyone who is planning on attending, can you please send me an email at ExtremeUnicycler@aol.com. I have been having massive computer problems and I have lost many of my emails.

For the barbecue we will be asking people to chip in about 5 dollars Canadian so we can buy a bunch of stuff to cook up. Don’t worry there will be alternatives for us vegetarians.

For the dinner at the Edgewater Bistro in Comox the burgers and fries will cost around 10$-15$ Canadian, but I’m sure we will get a deal, as I know the owner and both my Mom and Girlfriend work there.

I’m still working on getting some shirts together, but I dont know if it’s gonna happen yet.

If there is still tons of confusion on how to get here, just let me know by posting to this thread or sending me an email, and I will put a map up on the web.

If you are planning to stay at my house, please mention that in your email so I know how much room I have. If you are planning on finding other accommodations I have compiled a list of nearby hotels.

Hopefully this helps everybody out.

Dylan Wallinger

I’m there.

Thanks for the info on the Vancouver muni event Dylan! I just paid for my plane ticket and am flying in from the farthest point in Eastern Canada to practically the farthest point West! I would like to know a few more details such as is Black Creek closer to Campbell River or Comox? How can I get to Black Creek (any possible lifts?) Is anyone driving up or back to Vancouver? I will be camping hopefully in Dylan’s backyard!! Are the events/rides definately starting on Friday? Who besides me, Dylan and Checketnuts will be there?
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to the first Van. Island Muni!!

Keep’er rollin’

Dylan-

I will be attending at least one day. I plan to be a MUni rider one day and a husband on another day. I’m interested in the ride that has the most trail toys. Will you list the features of the rides if possible?

What ferry do you recommend taking? Which one is least likely to require reservations? The Comox-Powell River run looks like it’s the most convenient.

Is Black Creek a tiny little community with no motels in town and only the provincial campground nearby? Is the campground primitive or does it have pay showers available?

Will you soon post a map or directions to your house or whatever meeting place we will use?

Will I need to bring my Canadian phrase book or will translators be available?

Hi Dylan.

I’m planning on attending. What would be the best way to get to your place from the Tacoma area? I’m planning on coming over the last ferry ride on Friday night.

Jason Preston

PS-If anyone needs a ride from South Seattle on Friday night and coming back on the lastest ferry on Saturday shoot me an email.
