Where's the Convention Site?
Toronto is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Canada, and is east of Detroit. With a population of 3.5 million multi-cultural residents, the city is the largest in Canada and has international-level convention facilities.

The 2001 National Unicycle Convention will be principally held at Humber College, a local community college, which is north-west of downtown Toronto. Only 3 miles from Toronto International Airport, the college is very convenient for international travellers. All track and field events will be held at the Toronto Track and Field Centre at York University, 7 miles east of Humber College. A separate location for a Mountain Unicycling circuit will be determined later.

Here's the bird's eye Humber College campus map, complete with parking lots. Here's the more detailed floor plan of the Humber College buildings. If we zoom in any more you'll be able to see the urinals in the guy's washroom. Of particular note are: Gymnasia (#2, right side), Student Residences (#40, left side off map). Also of note: Funeral Services (#28), Humber School for Writers and Comedy (#8). No, we have not mapped out the campus with a GPS. Please bring your compass.

Convention Facilities
The 2001 National Unicycle Convention's main site will be Humber College, Toronto, CanadaThe main site will be at Humber College, North Campus. Humber College has a 20,000 sq. ft. gymnasium, separate rooms for workshops, modern air-conditioned dormitory accomodation, and a wide variety of restaurant and eating options.

What a huge gym! 200'x l00' (20,000 square feet), three (3) full size playing surfaces separated by curtains
Three (3) full size playing surfaces of maple cushioned floor that's 200'x l00' large. Is this uni heaven or what? How many unicyclists do you think we can fit into there?

Check out Humber College's very cool Virtual Tour of the gym, weight room, arboretum, residence, food court. I don't believe we've booked the library, though, but I'll check. This campus is a really cool place to ride, so when you're not competing there'll be lots to see. Please note that we are still in negotiations for certain facilities of this campus.

Veri Hall at York University, Toronto, Canada. All track events of the 2001 NUC will be held on campusThe track events will be held at the Toronto Track and Field Centre at York University, 7 miles east of Humber College. York University has an eight-lane rubberized 400-metre Olympic regulation track, two 125-metre sprint runways and seating for 2500 spectators.
