Will be visiting my daughter at Berkeley from NJ that week, so I'm in! It sounds like a fun way to bring awareness to the masses.

Judith, sizes??? We used to get a hula hoop. No size. Green, blue, red, yellow? Some things have just become too complicated!

I don't think the Guinness people will be able to count remote hoola hoopers! :(
