It's always a difficult balance trying to fit even more stuff in than the competition events; unfortunately they take precedence. Sometimes it works out great, but other times there aren't enough people, or enough combination of spaces in the right places, to make it work. I will always do my best to host at least one workshop. Other than Sumo, which is a different workshop.

Not recommended. NAUCC is very much geared to enthusiasts of all levels, with plenty of room in almost every event. Do them for the fun of it! I used to win a lot, but these days I get (almost) the same amount of satisfaction for finishing.

Me too! A non-competitive Muni ride is perhaps my favorite activity to do at a unicycle convention in a new place. I'm very exited to hear about Grenoble, which I just saw yesterday!

I understand last year they had a lot of trouble securing their main venues; originally the advertised Stevenson High School (my alma mater), but the school district moved them once, and then again, to where they had to find something outside of the district.

For this year's NAUCC, they advertise some sort of a Muni ride every day, which is a very attractive to me! Most or all of those will be non-competitive, which is my favorite kind.

Vive la France!
