Northwest Unicycle Clinic 2010 -- CANCELED
The Northwest Unicycle Clinic which is presented each spring by the Panther Pride Unicycle Team has been canceled for this year.
Without going into too many details there was persistent feedback from one of the parents of a previous attendee that the unicycling activites at the clinic were unsafe, even though there was nothing unusually risky compared to any other sporting clinic. Unicycling has an inherent level of risk, as does football, basketball, baseball, soccer, lacross, running, breathing, etc.
The Unicycling Society of America provides insurance for events such as NAUCC which require participants to be members of USA, which is not the case for the clinic. Participants are mostly just kids and coaches who want to learn more about unicycling and learn new skills. It was decided to cancel the event entirely to eliminate exposure to possible law suits by the parent mentioned above.
It's a sad day. What's next...
