Asheville wins 2013 Hooping Community of the Year

Via Ashvegas:

If you think of Asheville as the hooping capital of the U.S., turns out you were right–and now we have proof., the online home of the global hooping community since 2003, just handed out its 2013 “Hoopies,” in which a panel of 50 judges voted on awards including Best Solo Video, Best Tutorial, Best Female Hooper, and Hooper Hall of Famer.

Asheville totally snared Best Hooping Community 2013, tieing with Brighton, England.

Also nominated for Best Hopping Community were Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; Los Angeles, California; Mexico City, Mexico; New York City; Tampere, Finland and Tokyo, Japan.

Congrats to all our hoopers! See you at Pritchard Park in about 45 days.
