National Unicycle Convention (NUC) 2000 July 20-23 at Adrian College,
Adrian, Michigan. A registration form will soon be available in ON ONE
WHEEL. For more information, visit www.rtuc.org.
As I write this our newsletter editor,
Constance Cotter, informs us that she will be putting the finishing touches
on it (hopefully) in the next week or so (depending on her other
responsibilites - remember that she is an unpaid volunteer! Thanks for your
work, Connie!). Then it's the logistics of getting it printed, ready for
mailing, etc. I'll try to let you know when it is actually in the mail.
Recent problems with memberships, etc. Some of you are aware that the USA
has been having some problems responding timely to requests for new
memberships, etc. We are an all volunteer organization and are
geographically dispersed (Washington, California, Michigan, MInnesota,
Ohio). We all have lots of other responsibilities and lead busy lives.
Also, sometimes communication between officers doesn't work as well as it
should. Memberships and our member database are the responsibility of the
vice president. Due to changes in work duties and the realization that the
job demanded more time than he had available, the vice president recently
resigned from this position. We are in the process of recruiting a new vice
president to handle these duties and expect to be able to announce a
replacement soon. If you haven't received your new membership, information,
or merchandise which you requested, please forgive us. We are doing our
best to correct the problem. Meanwhile, please continue to be patient, but
feel free to contact either of the following with your concerns, complaints,
Scott Arnold, Secretary <firstname.lastname@example.org>
John Foss, President <email@example.com>
Unicon X update A lot has happened here. Alberto Ruiz (IUF President),

all recently travelled to China (at the invitation of the hosts) as consultants.
