Since I will be organising the unicycling side of things… there will be loads. :slight_smile:

The unicyclists have almost exclusive use of a large sports hall. We intend to have a mini tournament on in the afternoon.

So see you then.


“15-00 - 18.00 Unicycle Hockey”

First decent hockey session in ages and it clashes with the football :angry:

Not sure what to do now. Any chance of switching it to AM/early PM?
