Default New PA Uni Club: The Wobbling Lions


Hi Folks,

Tomorrow is the big day: the first meeting of a unicycle club that I am
starting. I am bracing for the worst (no shows) and the best (a few
shows). I'll bring my unicycle collection, which includes an extra 20"
and 16" for people who don't have their own unis yet.

I advertized at local bike shops, Bicycle club list-serves, and through
the public shcools (with the Superintendent's permission, of course). I
have not received much feedback from the poster, so I think the club
will start slowly...

Wish me luck and please post suggestions for recruiting and
activities!

Blake

YAY!! Thanks. It will be great to meet you after all this talk! My son
will be there, too. One of my friends will be there in coming later
weeks to learn, but is off on family business this week.

one thing that might help would be to make a website even if it's
extremely simple that has all the information and then have it on the
fliers that people can tear off at the bottom. Good luck!

What a blast. I don't know if the folks who were there could see how
happy I really was.

We had two fellows who knew what they were doing ow up. Chris and
TheObieOne. TheObie deserves greatest lauds because I sent him
directions the long way and didn't realize how long it was. He was on
his trials uni and made it the distance to the park anyway. Thanks,
Kevin, for making the effort. I'll definitley give you a lift next
time!

We had some hopping on picnic tables, giraffe and coker riding. I
worked on my choppy spins, backwards and one footed. My unicycles all
saw action.

Three passers-by stopped to try, one borrowed my 24"sun to practice
this week. i could tell he was hooked. His wife gave my 20" a try, too.


Bear had a good time and rode intermittently.

I couldn't have asked for better weather, friendlier people and a more
rewarding first day of Unicycle Club!

It was also great to see some real skills in action thanks to
TheObieOne and Chris.

Blake

I looked before because you are in Center Valley, PA and we are in
Centre county. We are in State College right smack dab in the middle of
the state. Chris is from the Allentown area though, which I think is
not too far from you, and I am from Philadelphia, so maybe if I come
home we can meet up for a ride.

I had a good time too. It was worth the effort getting down there just
to interact with other unicyclists and actually ride for the first time
in a while. I really felt great riding, I had forgotten how much fun it
was.

It was completely my fault I got off track. I used directions from
mapquest and copied them wrong. Before I realized I was going the wrong
direction I was back in town.

I'm glad I got to come down; I can't wait for next week...I may have to
go for a ride in the meantime!

There is a very active club in Pittsburg. The contact on the forum in
Unidaddy. Send him a PM. He's out of the country for a spell, but he
will be able to give you the information on that club if someone else
on the forum doesn't know.

Congrats.
I don't think anyone who's never organised anything can ever truly
appreciate how kewl it feels to see people having fun.

Long may it last.
