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 Male/Female Hooper, and Hooper Hall of Famer.
