Berkeley Juggling and Unicycle Festival (October 7-9)

The first Berkeley Juggling and Unicycle Festival will be October 7-9 (Friday 5PM through Sunday 5PM). There will be a full slate of unicycle events, including two MUni events, a unicycle basketball tournament, unicycle workshops by John Foss and others, and whatever else we can come up with.

See the festival web site at http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~juggle/festival/ for more information.

Hey would you (and some of the other trials guys) be interested in doing a trials demo/workshop? I suck at trials.

Cool, I'll go check out the schoolyard to see what the possibilities are, or whether we'll need to make up some obstacles.

I went by to look at the outdoor area where the festival will be located, and I think it has rich possibilities for trials. There are a bunch of stairs, plus an outdoor concrete ampitheater with bigger steps/drops, and some scary-looking skinnies to ride, too. So, trials is looking fun.

Yeah, that was at the Solano Stroll, which is a huge street fair (they claim 250K people). We were there promoting the festival; I gave those girls a flyer.

Reminder: The Berkeley Juggling and Unicycle Festival is this weekend, starting at 5:00 PM Friday (October 7) and going through 5:00 PM Sunday. The festival is free and open to the public; the public show on Saturday night is $12.

We now have a tentative workshop/activity schedule available, with a full roster of unicycle events. Come on by!

I might be up for coming. When exactly would the trials workshop be? I have a few simple obstacles (not very impressive, unless you already ride trials) that I might be able to bring, and a friend, mark, has a few skinnies he might be able to bring.

The trials workshop is whatever the trials guys want to make it. It looks like there are some good trials obstacles in the courtyard, but if you can bring anything I'm sure someone would jump on it.
