I'm looking to try and start a Cincinnati hoop group to meet on the weekends and jam out, or even hold some hoop-building parties. I haven't met a whole bunch of Cinci hoopers yet, as I think we're kind of scattered. This would be an awesome opportunity to get everyone together to make some new friends and connections.
If you're diggin the idea, let me know! The more the better.
I figured connecting with some people before choosing a location would be the best idea, but I'm thinking mid-Cinci or some similar place. Also thinking of a pot-luck style or BYO-everything for snacks to keep us going. Input, need input!
If anyone is already holding their own regular or semi-regular jams (aside from the KOIPound fire/glow spin jam on Wednesdays) then I'd love to hear about it!
Let me know if you're in, and we'll work things out. :) Summer isn't nearly over!
Life is keeping me from doing it, so I'm crazy happy that some one else IS! YAY YOU!
Music was the thing that always hung me up when trying to put together a jam. I know Leslie at Shine has a Block Rocker, and I think they're the best... and, like, $250. What about live music? Dunno. Gotta run, but I'll keep the brain storming!
Hoopinnati Flow Jams will always be completely free!
The flow jam is BYO-Everything. Please wear your comfy summer clothes, bring sunscreen, H20, and any snacks you may need to keep you going. There is a pavilion for rest and shade, but it may be occupied by other park patrons, so lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged! Bathrooms are available.
We have a very large, open space that can accomodate an incredible amount of hoopers, all with enough room to practice their tricks!
I'll have some extra hoops on hand, about 5 or so, if you don't have a hoop or if you're bringing a friend who doesn't own one.
Children and pets are welcome with responsible supervision. Please note that sometimes pets really don't like hula hoops!
Mt. Airy Forest park is located at 5083 Colerain Avenue in Cincinnati. Check out the Google Maps page below for exact directions to where our jam site is located within the park. The directions are shown leading from the main park entrance to the jam site.
