British Unicycle Convention RIP ??

British Unicycle Convention RIP ??

Post by Jonathan Marshal » Wed, 11 Feb 1998 04:00:00


At last years British Unicycle Convention it was decided that this year
the convention would be organised by Hackney and it would probably be
sometime in May. It now looks like this will not happen. Some of the
Hackney hockey team have moved away recently and in particular James
Bentley who was leading the organisation has just got a new job in
Manchester.

I was at a Juggling convention in York a couple of weeks ago and met up
with the organisers of this years British and Eupopean Juggling
Conventions and there was a suggestion that we might attach ourselves to
one of those rather than trying to set something up specifically for
Unis. The BJC is a bit close (over Easter weekend) but the EJC ( in
Edinburgh in 3rd to 8th August ) is quite an interesting suggestion as
they have booked the whole of Meadowbank stadium for a week so there
would be a good track as well as an area for hockey etc. and Roger
Davies and the DCJ are already organising a Muni event for them.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Do you want a separate convention?

Do you want to organise it?

Do you care?

If you have been to previous British Conventions and didn't go last
year, why not? Was there something about them you didn't like? In that
case what would make you want to go again?

All comments welcome... Well, nearly all.

I personally wouldn't like to see it die out again but numbers have been
dropping each year and we need to get some more new people involved and
maybe going back with one of the juggling conventions is a possible way
of doing that.

Is there anybody out there..... except,

Text item:

Jonathan Marshall wrote about combining the British Unicycle Convention
with the European Juggling Convention.

The EJC is taking place in Edingurgh, Scotland August 3-8. I just wanted
to point out that this convention starts the day after UNICON IX ends.
Hint hint, nudge nudge.

If an actual unicycle convention will be there, it's enough to make me
take even more days off from work to be there. In other words, if people
choose to do it that way, I will do my best to be there.

Sorry, can't help with the organization, I'm already working on a
convention or two...

Only the HUGE hangover I had on the Saturday at Brockworth! ;)

Hope that's within limits!
