Talking Age group video challenge

Anyone up for it? Basically, each age group works together to make the best unicycling video they can. This is made more interesting by the fact that you (probably) won't see the people you're riding with or against. What I'd suggest is the following age groups:
  • under 20s
  • 20 to 29
  • 30 to 39
  • 40 to 49
  • 50 to 59
  • 60+

So everyone that decides to join in has to make a video with people within the same age group, without actually riding with them. Afterwards, the videos will be judged (criteria to be decided upon) and the winning team shall be revealed!

Who wants to join in?

You may want smaller age groups since most of the people likely to participate are under 20.

That's true. Any suggestions for better age groups?

I think the ages should be the same except
  • 0-14
  • 15-17
  • 18-20
Yeah?

Wouldn't it be better to make groups with one rider from each age group? The the downside of this would be that some younger riders will not find a group because of a lack of older (20+) riders (but it's the same now for older riders) but it would make a lot more intresting videos because of a mix of styles and ages.

It'd be any style at all, depends on what style the riders in each age group ride. It'd be for all abilities that were able to do something videoable - for example, riding in a straight line wouldn't make a good video, but riding in a straight line on a narrow bar would.

So is it a competition to find the best rider in each age group? OR are you trying to get a bunch of people in the same age group to make a video?

Get a bunch of people in the same age group to make a video, then judge the best video at the end.
