[CFM 2006] French Cup - english version

For those English speakers who will be at the French Cup I translated the first and thrid post of the French Cup thread.

This post is reserved for official announcements for the French Cup 2006

ACUN, the University of Nantes and the city of Nantes welcome the French Cup of unicycling, October 27-29th 2006.

Our hearts fill with joy with the idea of presenting you our best unicycling sports, our training space, and our beautiful city…

We will do everything so that you are not bored, because if you do not want to compete, workshops will be arranged in parallel during the whole event.

This year, All Saints Day falls on a Wednesday; therefore there will not be a long weekend. However we will do all we can so that a maximum of events can be represented.
There will not be a formal trials competition, however, we will have a speed trials and street competitions along with a trials zone.

A small post with practical information!

There will also be a welcome guide with a map of the site, the hours of the events and workshops, nice unicycle rides to do in Nantes, where to shower, where to sleep, where to eat, etc… for each registered unicyclist on the first day of the French Cup!


There will not be an official camping site, but a large grassy field next to the venue of the French Cup, which will be free to place your tents (showers are in the gym or in the racecourse which nearby).
For valuable items there will be a coatroom, which you may use for free, and it will be closed to avoid theft.

For those who do not want to sleep in tents, 200 meters away there is the petit port camp site where you can rent a mobile home.
