    Looks like we will have a professional video made too—you'll be able to pre-buy it for a discount when you register. You can also order videos without coming to MUni Weekend.

    John Hooten and John Foss came up with a design. It will use the logo image from the 2000 MUni Weekend (the Sobe Lizard Fuel-inspired MUni guy). Shirts will be Nathan yellow, with the designs in dirt brown and forest green. The slogan message for this year is: "2002 one wheeled Cruz." Shirts will be available in S, M, L, XL, and sweatshirts, size L only. First come, first served. You can order shirts or videos without coming to MUni weekend!

    Grab a Hotel Room
    Bruce recommends the Inn Cal. They are giving everyone in our group a 10% discount (they are already the cheapest place in town and just a couple blocks from his house, so it should be a pretty decent deal). Just make sure to mention "California Mountain Unicycle Weekend" when making your reservation. Let me know what rate they quote you, so I can publicize it to the rest of the people staying there. Thanks!

    Inn Cal
    370 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz
    Phone: 831-458-9220, 1-800-550-0055

    An alternative is one of the two Super 8 Motels in town. Jacquie and I have stayed there before. It doesn't really matter which Super 8, as they are across the street from each other (down near the beach and boardwalk area):

    Super 8 Motel
    338 Riverside Avenue
    Santa Cruz, CA, 95060
    Super 8 Motel
    321 Riverside Ave.
    Santa Cruz, CA, 95060

    When you register, you will be asked to sign a release of liability that states in detail that you and you alone are responsible for what happens to you while participating in this very informal event. As with any sporting activity, there is the potential for injury. Not as much as with mountain biking, but there is always an element of danger. We want you to know before you come, that the hosts will not be responsible for your actions.
