Stef Snow Hooping in Highland Park

Stef has a sweet new video of hooping in the snow on YouTube.  If you've been snow hooping, too, please send us pictures or video!

We had to skip Hoop Tuesday last week because of the snow, and I CAN'T WAIT to get moving again tomorrow night.  If you are tired of getting all your exercise from hauling snow, come hula hoop with us at the Union Project tomorrow night.  

6:30 - 7:30 pm
at the Union Project
no experience necessary
all ages
hoops provided 

Please bring $5 (or what you can) to help us pay for hoops and space.

Come play with us!

sNOw Hoop Tuesday

Hello Winter.   There will be no hooping at the Union Project this week, on account o' the SNOW.   If we get another lovely sunny day like today, though, and if I'm not too busy digging out, maybe we could orchestrate a snow hooping session outside somewhere.  Anybody up for it?  Or maybe since nobody can go anywhere we can all just hoop in our own front yards and post pictures?

Hooping OnQ! And a big THANK YOU

Hey Hoopers! Don't forget! Steel City Hoop Union will be on WQED tonight as a featured segment (for real this time!)! So grab your hoop and remote and tune in 'round 7:30pm!

Steel City Hoop Union wants to give a HUGE hOOpin' holler to all of you who came and hooped it up for Haiti on Tuesday! Special thanks to everyone who brought food and all those gorgeous silent auction items. And thanks to Gwen for the Zumba lesson, too! We raised $429 for Brother's Brother Foundation to go toward Haiti earthquake relief. O, and HOW FUN WAS THAT?!

And yes! We're hooping next Tuesday, and every Tuesday, at 6:30 pm at the Union Project. Remember you can keep track of us on facebook and on blogspot -- just google "Steel City Hoop Union" and you'll find us!

(wow, I got a little carried away with the !!! there)

A little update

Yes!  We are hooping tonight, and every Tuesday, at the Union Project from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.  The Union Project is at the corner of Stanton and Negley Ave.  We've got hoops to share.  

Watch for news about an important event next week.  Stef will be back, and she's got big plans.

Also, the spot about our hoop jams on OnQ! Magazine last week was rightly postponed due to coverage of the earthquake in Haiti.  The hooping segment is now scheduled for January 28.  Meanwhile, all our thoughts are with the people in Haiti.

Hope to see you tonight!
