Australia and New Zealand, how are you doing?

According to all indications, attendance to UNICON X will be much higher
than expected. Reports from Japan, Hong Kong, USA, Puerto Rico, Europe, etc.
indicate that there might be about twice the per country attendees that had
been estimated. This is not surprising considering all the efforts being
made.

I am wondering about the riders from Australia and New Zealand. It might be
easier for you if you channel the applications through one person.

What do you say Julian Orbach?
Any volunteers from NZ?
This is a great chance to meet personally lots of the friends you have met
through the Net.

Unfortunately Australia's "third world" economy will not allow for our
unicycle riders to travel overseas.

Here a semcycle costs 5 goats. I am saving up for a Coker (2 cows). Until
then I will have to be content with my cheap taiwanese uni that I picked up
at a garage sale for 4 chickens.

Where I live (in Queensland) the accepted currency also includes XXXX beer.

I have heard that the national currency for New Zealand is sheep, but I
cannot verify this.

Do you know how many cows it costs to buy a plane ticket?

   Things are "soooOO bad" in NZ

   That.. the sheep are wearing the gumboots

  ;) ......   There are 3 or 4 Kiwi's interested I know of
  but sadly the cow to plane ticket ratio is against us

Personally I haven't given up but have some family stuff which has me well
distracted....we'll see?

       Cheers Harold
