On One Wheel
The latest issue of the magazine On One Wheel (OOW) is out (I got mine in
the mail today)! Besides a lot of interesting and informative articles, it
has registration information for both the National Unicycle
Convention (NUC) 2000 in Adrian, Michigan on July 20 through July 23 and the
10th World Unicycling Championship (UNICON X) in Beijing, China from August
1 through August 8.
The time it takes to receive your copy of OOW varies depending on location,
so be patient if you haven't gotten yours yet.
The Unicon X website has been updated. Besides some minor additions and
corrections, there is also a new menu item called 'Traveling FAQ'. This new
FAQ is from my experiences of being in Beijing last January. While it is
only my experience, it can help people prepare for the trip. Check it out

The FAQ also has information
for TeamUSA. Since I'm coordinator of TeamUSA, I also want to know who from
the United States is planning on going. When giving me your name, also give
me an interest level of 1 through 3 where:
1 = I'm thinking about going,
It's coming sooner than we think! In Oregon (where I am writing from), we
just changed to daylight savings time, the trees and flowers are starting to
bloom, the sun is coming out more often, and the air is warmer. It's time
to get those riding legs in shape!
2 = I'm going but haven't booked my airfare yet, and
3 = I've booked my airfare! I'm going!
NUC 2000 is being co-hosted by Wood One Wheelers (WOW) of Ohio, and Redford
Township Unicycle Club (RTUC) of Michigan. The NUC directors are Jan Layne
of WOW and Dottie Sogoian of RTUC. It takes a lot of work and volunteers to
put on a good convention. If you can possibly help, let them know and
they'll find something you can do!
