Who wants to break the Hoop Workout World Record tomorrow in Gaithersburg, Maryland? Here's the scoop:
* We need a minimum of 293 participants * Every participant MUST have a hoola hoop * Every participant MUST complete the full 1.5 minute workout (you read that right... ONE AND A HALF MINUTES) ... * There will be three different moves that every participant must do. They will be as follows: ** 30 seconds of waist hooping ** 30 second of waist hooping while doing side arm circles ** 30 seconds of hoop jumping (similar to jumping rope) * If any participant stops, the clock stops and we ALL have to start again.

Check out the flyer for specifics - WFM-RAHH.jpg

See you there!

I have heard there are hoop jams of some sort in Charlottesville on Tuesdays (I believe).  If anyone has any info on something similar in this area please let me know =) .

For hoopers living in or near Charlottesville that have nothing to do literally right now, here ya go.  The Tom Tom Founders Festival is starting its month-long celebration of music, art and innovation with a kickoff block party on April 13 at McGuffey Art Center.

The Founder’s Day event will include outdoor performances on the McGuffey’s steps from 5 to 8 p.m. Bands will include Beleza Brasil, the Downbeat Project, the Olivarez Trio and the African dance troupe Chihamba.

A block of Second Street Northwest in front of McGuffey — between Market Street and West Jefferson Street — will be closed to provide space for the block party, which will include activities for children.

After 8 p.m., the music moves inside. Bands will include Hot Twang!, the Eames Coleman Trio, the Invisible Hand, Borrowed Beams of Light, Dwight Howard Johnson and DJ Kris Bowmaster. The back-to-back musical performances will take place on all three floors of the building.

Sculptor Ed Miller will be making an interactive plaster sculpture on the McGuffey lawn, and visitors will be able to help him create the work’s surface texture. Miller, a visiting professor in studio art at the University of Virginia, is a festival artist in residence.

During the block party, festival organizers will announce the full schedule of events and its other artists in residence and innovators in residence.

The outdoor music will be sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company, and beer sales will benefit the Dreamfield Foundation.

I was contacted by an intern and told that at about 5:00 pm there is going to be a hoop jam.  I'm working today, but will probably sneak out to hoop for a few minutes lol.
