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.

Happy Hooping,

Philo and Vera
