Case in point: I've met a few more Boston area hoopers here on HoopCity who I did not know yet. It's almost ironic that we've met on the internet but not in person! Glad I was able to catch a few more of you here :)
Hey Princess Hula!
I founded a group in Richmond, Va, called the RVA HoOp LOvers, and I agree that communicating on as many social sites as possible is the best way to get the word out. Along with several of the sites you mentioned, I also use MeetUp.com. It's not free to use as a facilitator but it has proven to be a great way to find other hoopers, register meetups, including classes and workshops, and gives you the ability to send messages out to your member base. I love meetup and started using it along with Tribe.net in 2007 to gather hoopers....it's been an awesome tool!
