Break out the old hula hoop for Hoop Jam 2009

I haven't seen or heard from hula hoops for about five years now, but this is the second time in less than 12 hours the two of us have crossed paths. 

The Charleston Hoop Group wants anyone who has the skill and passion for hula hooping to come out to the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park and show off their moves this Saturday, August 15.

The Facebook event tipped me off to this. The hoop meet-up will run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

For all you hoopers out there, you should also check out Hand Me A Hoop's myspace page. They're a local group of ladies dedicated to spreading the joy of hooping. They'll also hook you up with a custom hoop for just 25 bucks.

The Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park is located off Harry M. Hallman Jr. Boulevard just under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on the Mount Pleasant Side.
