My name is Kristin & I just found & joined your little Hula-Hooping community. I recently started Hula-Hooping again (since I was a child) because of my dear friend Malia. Now that brings me to my post... Malia has started a massive Hula-Hooping revolution here in Southern California. We are uniting the world with one Hula-Hoop at a time. She even makes & sells her custom hula-hoops! If you are in the Southern California region and would like to check out this event, all the info is here:
Whether you're just curious or already passionate about hooping, head out to beautiful Santa Monica Beach this Sunday afternoon and join us for our weekly gathering of hoopy happiness! We are an informal group of acquaintances, strangers, and soon-to-be-friends who want to share the joy of hooping with each other and YOU! Here are all the details: (cross-posted on various sites)
p.s. if you're also on tribe.net add LA Hoopers!
-Santa Monica Beach, CA
-The grassy area South of the Pier. Located near the restrooms.
-Park for FREE (3 hours) in the mall parking lot.
-Sunday, January 29th 2pm - Sunset
-Afterwards, feel free to join us for dinner & a stroll on the Promenade!
-Your hoop (if you have one!)
-Your hoopy friends! (And non-hoopy friends too!)
-A jacket or sweater (It gets chilly after dark.)
-Your camera, some snacks, and a water bottle. :)
-What if I don't have a hoop?
Don't worry, we'll be glad to lend you one! We always bring extra hoops for our hoopless friends. Additionally, several LA hoopers who attend the group make & sell their own hoops in case you're interested in purchasing a hoop of your own! :)
-I don't know how to hoop! Can I still come?
YES! We would be thrilled to help you learn to hoop. The hoop group is also an ideal place to learn new hooping tricks & techniques.
-I don't know anyone who will be at the hoop group...
Then come on down and make some happy hooping friends! Just remember, we ALL started out not knowing anyone. :)
-I can't make it this weekend, when will the next hoop group be?
I assure you that any Sunday the sun is shining and I'm healthy and in town, I will be hosting a hoop group. Why? Because I'm absolutely committed to bringing the hooping community together and spreading the joy that hooping brings. If you would like to be added to my email distribution list for hoop group notifications, let me know!
