Can I still do the challenge after the raffle is over?
Absolutely! To be entered in the raffle, you will need to sumbit your entry by the deadline. However, you can still complete previous challenges to work on your personal growth as a hooper. Have fun working through the old activities and challenge yourself! We all grow at different rates and all of the challenges will be useful even years from now. If you've already done a challenge feel free to try it again in a few years, you may have a completely different experience the second time around.
The Beginning
It began on September 2010 when David posted a forum discussion called "A Hoop-Flow Challenge". He challenged us to hoop dance for the entire song of Ava Maria. Over time new challenges were added by other hoopers; like Look Ma no Hands! and Communication Revelationand then this group was born.

Is there a new challenge for February?

Comment by Cheez Hoops on October 13, 2014 at 12:32pm

Would love to hear from everyone in the group to get more ideas for new challenges!! I'm really excited to keep this going and get prizes back!!  http://www.hoopcity.ca/group/hoopingflowchallenges/forum/topics/bra...

Comment by Traci "CircularPraise" Bonney on August 6, 2014 at 8:20am

Hey, hoopers! I haven't been active on HC in a while for various reasons, but I'm still signed up for notifications on this group, so I'm excited to see there's interest in restarting the challenges. If Safire has no problem with it, I agree we should just post a new challenge and go for it. From what I can see, the last challenge to be posted was put up by a community member, so I think it would be okay for us to do that.

Comment by Cheez Hoops on August 5, 2014 at 10:09pm

Hey Emma, that's a great and interesting idea about the shapes, love it! And yes Mira, I want the prizes to continue as well! Maybe we can get that started back next month if we get all the details worked out! I love getting hoopers and shops out there as well! I would love to donate one of my hoops for a prize in the future just to give some incentive! We should definitely continue the raffle!

If we can just get a couple of us to keep it up and keep the momentum going, this could really take off again.

Love to hear more ideas and thoughts about this!! :)

Comment by Solpheno on August 5, 2014 at 9:23pm

Love,love love, the idea Emma!! I'm definitely going to have to say yes, we need more of that in our lives! <3

Cheeze and I were discussing this at length earlier today and we agreed (as we all seem to be :P) that we want to see this group revived... so she sent off a message to SaFire asking for her blessings for us all hi-jacking the group more or less... if we still don't hear nothing back we'll post up a quickie-challenge for us all to have fun with in the morn' sometime... 

I'll throw up an ideas thread soon after for us all to post challenges we'd like to see... and we can all get our thinking caps on and brainstorm to the max :D I'll be fish-bowling the ideas for our draws..so all ideas that get thrown into that thread regardless of it's time posted will get picked eventually.. 

And sorry if it felt like we were shooting down the prize idea Mira (because we are definitely not, everybody likes prizes :P, and I like to here it was a raffle..had originally thought it was more of a competitive things, thank you for clarifying that! :) <3).. we'd love to see it again one day as well, just no idea as to how we'll get about to that end of it as of yet. But it probably is possible once we get everything all smoothed back out maybe? I'm not sure yet... we'll all have to decide once we get that far :D 

Is there anything else you guys would like to see go down as well?? Feedback? Thoughts? Ideas? Loves?


Comment by Mira on August 5, 2014 at 8:44pm

Yeah... So don't get me wrong I'm not "hey, I'm getting in it to win it" sort of mentality" I was just excited to see someone starting the group back up again and trying to add to what has always been done in this group since I joined hoopcity a little over 3 yrs ago. I thought the prize idea was nifty because it gave a little advertisement for hoopers/makers with shops and incentive for more people to join in. The raffle was cool because then it was equal opportunity. I don't know. -Shrugs in defense-

Although *personally I do agree that it is more fun to just do them for improvement and supporting other hoopers. 

Comment by Emma Pixie on August 5, 2014 at 8:25pm

Lets do this!! I live in outback Australia, like halfway into the desert, so im pretty much on my own out here. Im in the process of creating a hooping community out here, but it takes time. so you guys can be my fwiends and hoopsupport in the meantime :D

Do we need to have a leader? i guess it might help things to run smoothly.

I totalle agree with the no-prize thing, its not necessary, and impractical when it comes to postage for people on all corners of the globe.

I have a suggestion for a hoop challenge. Its kind of cheesy so im open to other suggestions too.
Its about shapes (so nothing original in the hooping world i suppose!)

so this challenge is about finding triangles. where can we find triangles in amongst our flow? in what ways can we place our arms, legs, body head and hoop to create triangles? and then, how can we incorporate this new-found form into our flow, to create a new visual element?

does this sound do-able or is it too obscure?

Comment by Cheez Hoops on August 5, 2014 at 5:51pm

I use to be really active but then I didn't have internet for a whilllleeeee so I'm ready to get back into it. I just messaged the group moderator but she hasn't had any activity on here for over a year. I say we just push that Add Discussion button and start our own and also post another discussion to list challenges for voting on for next month. :)

Comment by Solpheno on August 5, 2014 at 5:44pm

Cool beans!!!

Glad to hear it! :D

I've only really started posting around here... probably this month even though I've been around for a few (and hooping foooreeever it feels heeheehee!!) Thought it's about time I started saying hello to all the other lovelies around here, I'm certain most won't bite. :)

So! Further questions... does clicking that "Add Discusion" button above possibly allow us to... add our challenge there? Or can only the admins to it... -ponders-

I'm liking the idea of us starting one up where we can throw a handful of our challenge idea down into it..
