South West Uni Meet (UK)

There will be a South West Uni meet on Feb 28th 12noon - 5pm
AT
The Sports Hall of
Priory High School, Earl Richard Rd South, Exeter, EX2 6AP
just off the Topsham Rd, close to the Riverside cycle path.

Who is it for?
Any Unicyclists who want to come.

What activities are planned?
Unicycle Hockey, Basketball, Fun Games, Workshops and UUU levels testing.

What other stuff happens at a Uni meet?
Possibly a muni/trials ride if the weather is good and people want to go
out and play.A chance to ride some different unis, try out different wheel
sizes and crank length. A chance to meet other unicyclists from this end
of the world.There might be a raffle or Tombola with some vaguely unicycle
related stuff as prizes.

What should I bring?
Yourself and your unicycle/s. As its in a sports hall, unicycles used
indoors should have plastic ended pedals and seats and non-marking tyres.
If you have a hockey stick bring it along, I do have some spares tho.
Bring a packed lunch, soft drink will be avalible.Bring and use what ever
protective gear you want to wear. If any one has a set of hockey goals
they could bring can you let me know?

What will it cost?
5 pounds for riders
1 pound for non riders(eg parents)
free tea/coffe squash will be avalible

Where do I get more info?
There will be a website with directions and other info, I just havn't
writen it yet. In the meantime use this thread to ask questions or offer
help.

Hi Sarah,

The supplied e-mail address is not working (swum@uni...)

Apparently the route is only 10 miles further than Kidderminster so hope to attend, no idea about journey time.

This is cool! So there are now uni meets in Kidd, Manchester and Exeter.

I live in Newcastle, am still at school, and have not attended a Uni Meet yet!!!!! - due to clashing dates etc

This year my aim is to attend as many as possible (but I have GCSEs!! )

I would love to come down and meet up with the uniers in the South in 'real life'. Maybe next time!

Hope it goes well, and i will be waiting for the pics!


Joe,
