Hey everybody, sorry for the long wait, but finally everything seems to
be worked out for the first ever Vancouver Island Mountain Unicycle

Some of the rides arenít finalised because Iím not sure if the trails
are still there, (i.e., the might have been torn down, or logged) and
Iím not sure how difficult they are for beginner type riders. I also
donít have any lengths for the trails because they are just not known. I
will try to get up and time myself to see how long it takes me to ride
them. Donít worry though, none of them are overly epic.

Anyway here's the schedule as it stands right now:

The actual event is from August 22-24 but I'm just letting the people
know that are coming early or staying later, that nothing is really

Anyone who is planning on attending, can you please send me an email at
. I have been having massive computer problems
and I have lost many of my emails.

For the barbecue we will be asking people to chip in about 5 dollars
Canadian so we can buy a bunch of stuff to cook up. Donít worry there
will be alternatives for us vegetarians.

For the dinner at the Edgewater Bistro in Comox the burgers and fries
will cost around 10$-15$ Canadian, but Iím sure we will get a deal, as I
know the owner and both my Mom and Girlfriend work there.

I'm still working on getting some shirts together, but I dont know if
it's gonna happen yet.

If there is still tons of confusion on how to get here, just let me know
by posting to this thread or sending me an email, and I will put a map
up on the web.

If you are planning to stay at my house, please mention that in your
email so I know how much room I have. If you are planning on finding
other accommodations I have compiled a list of nearby hotels.

Thanks for the info on the Vancouver muni event Dylan! I just paid for
my plane ticket and am flying in from the farthest point in Eastern
Canada to practically the farthest point West! I would like to know a
few more details such as is Black Creek closer to Campbell River or
Comox? How can I get to Black Creek (any possible lifts?) Is anyone
driving up or back to Vancouver? I will be camping hopefully in Dylan's
backyard!! Are the events/rides definately starting on Friday? Who
besides me, Dylan and Checketnuts will be there?
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to the first Van. Island Muni!!

Keep'er rollin'

I will be attending at least one day. I plan to be a MUni rider one day
and a husband on another day. I'm interested in the ride that has the
most trail toys. Will you list the features of the rides if possible?

What ferry do you recommend taking? Which one is least likely to require
reservations? The Comox-Powell River run looks like it's the most

Is Black Creek a tiny little community with no motels in town and only
the provincial campground nearby? Is the campground primitive or does it
have pay showers available?

Will you soon post a map or directions to your house or whatever meeting
place we will use?

Will I need to bring my Canadian phrase book or will translators be
