We did it! We not only survived 2010, but I must say that we’re rolling into 2011 looking pretty gosh darn fabulous! You look fantastic! And it’s a weekend that calls for celebrating ourselves, our lives – and our hoops. Not only did they bring fun, fitness and fellowship to us throughout 2010, but they keep right on delivering more with a never ending supply. Throughout the past year we lost weight, got in better shape, made new friends, found community, rediscovered ourselves, learned to play again, cured ailments and more, we found our flow and found deeper flow, we learned new moves we never thought we’d be able to figure out, and all of this thanks to a colorful plastic ring. It’s been an amazing year for hooping and for our community and we wish everyone the happiest and hoopiest of holidays.
Here at Hooping.org, 2010 was a great year as well. When confronted with a major tech problem in the Spring, we relaunched in the Summer with a fresh new look and a brand new top-notch community system that has allowed us to remain the only fully hooper-owned and -operated space for hoopers online. And with 2,500+ members again and growing, the debut of brand new columnists (with more to come) and a parade of site traffic that has never been higher, it’s nice to know we, as a community, are making it happen. If you’d like to get involved on a deeper level in 2011 writing or moderating or organizing or cheerleading or you have some other idea, let us know. Hooping.org is our home, making it happen for hoopers since 2003. And stay tuned for 2011 when our columnists return from their holiday vacation with delicious new reads for a new year – and the big annual hoopla madness that we like to call the Hoopie Awards returns for our fourth annual season. Hoopy New Year everyone! Be safe and we look forward to seeing you next year!
