Please Print the registration form, fill it out, and mail it along with your registration fees to the address indicated on the form. Click here MMF08 Registration Form (.pdf) or MMF08 Registration Form (MSWord). Also, please send me an email letting me know you’ve mailed your registration. à My email. This will give me a couple of days jump on updating the attendees list that will be posted on this website and help with the event planning.
All rider-participants must register. Come to the Slickrock Campground
Friday anytime up till 6 pm or 8pm-10pm and look for the signs directing you to
the Moab MUni Fest Host Campsites (#180 and 181). The Slickrock Campsite
is a privately owned business just 1.7 miles North on Highway 191 (Main Street)
Lodging/Camping: The main camping group will be staying at the Slickrock Campground (www.slickrockcampground.com/). It is centrally located and is the most convenient place to camp. They have reduced their standard camping rates by 10% for our group. Single tent sites will be $19.62 for two, $5.00 extra for each additional body. Cabins for two people can be rented for $38.55 with an added fee of $5/person for each extra person up to the maximum capacity of 4 people. Group camp rates for tent camping is $8.72 per person with a minimum of 10 people over the age of 8. If past years are any indication, there is a lot of space sharing so if you are alone or wish to join up with other campers it won’t be a problem. Slickrock campground has two main bathrooms with Showers that are included in the daily rate and will be nice after our long days of hard riding. If you are planning to camp I highly recommend joining us at the Slickrock Campground. Please call and make your reservations with them directly and tell them you are with the unicycling group. I will not be involved in any way with collecting the camping fees.
For those who don’t like to rough it, there are many fine motels available in town. For it's location, cleanliness, newness, and indoor pool/jacuzzi it’s hard to beat the Best Western Canyonlands Inn (www.canyonlandsinn.com/, 1-800-649-5191). Due to our event being held later than most years, the hotels in town are filling up and none have been willing to offer our group a discount. As a result, if you are budget conscious and don’t mind putting a tent up, then Slickrock Campground is definitely where it is happening. Otherwise, check out these sites for other motels in town:
Prizes: We will hold a raffle of prizes and other donated items after the Saturday night dinner. The dinner tickets will be used for the raffle.

Friday March 28th –
Dinner plans are open, There aren’t any restaurants in
town that can handle a group as big as ours. I would encourage you to
meet up with other riders and find a restaurant to your liking. Out of
habit, more than anything else, my family will be going to the
Saturday March 29th – 6:00
pm. Dinner and Raffle, to be held at The Lions Club Park. Wayne Nadolske from Lotsa
Pasta Restaurant in Cortez Colorado with Tom Miller will be catering our
dinner. Vegetarian pasta will be available. After dinner we will
hold the raffle and have some trials opportunities for those who are
ambitious. With an extra hour of
daylight and starting a half hour earlier than in the past we will have plenty
of light to eat and play by. The cost of the dinner is $10/person if
pre-registered before March 9th, 2008 and $12/person
thereafter. For those who just show up
to the dinner with out prepaying the meal cost will be $13. Kids 12 and

your nose to any of the many fine restaurants available in
Last year at the Moab MUni Fest we were thrilled to have 178
Riders (a national record) and nearly 300 total with attending
Friends/Family. Regardless of how many we have this year, those who
participate can look forward to some incredible mountain unicycling with a lot
of other MUni enthusiasts and do it all in the magical red rock terrain of
