Our Annual Vacation

Sky It’s that time of year again boys and girls. Hooping.org is spinning away on our annual vacation so the web site won’t be updated and we won’t be answering email and such for a little while. Hoopers galore are currently heading to Burning Man, quite possibly the largest gathering of hoopers on the planet annually, in addition to other festivities above and beyond and around the globe. We’ve got our hoops packed and all of us here at hooping.org are heading somewhere to make the most of the sun and the season. We hope you’ll be out there somewhere celebrating life and doing something festive too. If all goes as planned we’ll be back online and at the helm here on Wednesday, September 5th, with a smile on our face and all kinds of great hooping stuff to share with you. Until then, dear hoopers, here’s how we spent our vacation last year and we wish you nothing but the hoopiest of times possible. Happy hooping everybody!
