At Unicon 11 we had a group uni ride on Bainbridge Island. I know that's not Orcas, but close. It was a really nice experience, including the ferry to get there, and nice to do some non-competitive events at any uni convention. I hope we can do more at future conventions, and will try to help with this process.

According to the IUF Board, at the IUF Meeting in Ansan (which was attended by maybe 25 people?), they are working with an organizing team in Brixen/Bressanone, Italy. It's not all worked out yet. There was also work on a location in Germany, but that couldn't be worked out. Hosting an event like Unicon is like putting on a mini-Olympics with a tiny budget. It can be extremely hard to line up sufficient facilities for all of the different events. Not only do large unicycle conventions require a huge amount of volunteer help, orgainzing them involves a ton of work.

I hope Brixen will work out for two reasons:
  1. I loved Italy in 2012 and would happily return anytime, even to exactly the same facilities. The town was great, has fabulous mountains all around, and the 2012 organizers did an amazing job.
  2. If it doesn't we don't have a Unicon 20
While your Unicon registration may seem a little expensive, that money is easily soaked up by all the million little things that need to be lined up and ready for such an event to take place. If you're in a position to help the IUF work on future convention locations, please do!

We await official word...

Official information from the IUF meeting at Unicon; the only bid the IUF has is Brixen Italy. The IUF is currently finalizing terms with Brixen.

Once it is final, there will be an announcement.

Funny.

I just happened to listen to the cd "Pierre de Grenoble" by Gabriel & Marie Yacoub from 1973

What does Grenoble have to do with unicycles?

If you want a unicon to happen there, you should make a bid for it in 2022. I'm not 100% sure how you do it, but I'm sure the "Commission Nationale Monocycle (CNM)" can help you with the details. You basically propose the IUF boards your location, with details like: Accomodation, Event venues, your team, probably financial plans etc. It's a great help if your city council approves and supports having Unicon there, as far as I understand.

(Maybe emile can help with more details too)

I don't live there, nor do I wish to organize anything. I just heard stuff and know for a fact there is no set location for 2020... ;-)

Not yet, not. Once a official location has been set, it will be announced. There would be no point in hiding the location for next Unicon.
