Unicycle Football

1PM 3PM • GOLDEN CROWN BILLIARDS PARKING LOT

Unicycle Football is exactly as it sounds. American football played entirely on unicycles. They play a 5 on 5 "flackle" (flag/tackle) variant on hard surface. There are a few minor adjustments in the rules to accommodate being on a unicycle but it's good ol' American football as you know and love. Details here.

A classic hard-knocks interlude of embattled teenage outsiders and insiders. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is the story of the "Greasers," who many think of juvenile delinquents or hoodlums, and the "Shoshes" who make up the popular crowd of cheerleaders and football jocks who have money, class and the better things in life. The story is set in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the 1960's. Tickets available here.
