Sunday, October 24th: THE BIG BAY AREA HOOP DAY!
We want everybody on this list to show up in Dolores Park in San
Francisco for one afternoon of incredible hooping. Can you imagine
Dolores Park filled with 120 hoopers? Can you imagine the look on the
faces of everyone in the vicinity as we swarm Dolores Park and turn
it into Hooper Heaven? Isn't it beautiful? This is the one Sunday we
want you to get to even if you haven't shown up for anything in
months or ever. Everybody come hoop! We really want to get a sound
system for the day too. Does anybody have one or know of a good cheap
rental resource for something that'll play cds and blast some volume?
Bring finger food to share. Totally free day, possible donation to
cover the sound system.
Sunday, October 31st: Halloween Hooping in the Castro
We're delaying our usual hoop time until 7:00 and meeting at Castro
and 19th for Halloween hoola-hooping in costume. In recent years the
DJ station near 19th on Castro Street has been the best and if
something changes this year we'll relocate. We'll hoop until we
collapse or we are overrun by the mob. Probably a $3 donation to
enter the neighborhood.
Well gang, that's October. We hope to see you throughout the month
and we look forward to giving the opportunity to be of service to
this group to someone else for November.
