Posted:well i was thinking that the reason the last HoP day wasnt as good as it could have been was because it was thought up with like 2 weeks to get things organised.
So this year i thought if we could get the ball rolling, we could make a better go of things!

so first things first:
where are the central meeting points?
London?
Sheffield?
Sydney?
who's got suggestions?

Okay pounce, if you wanna organise the US west coast community for Las Vegas, go for it.

im gonna nominate the following saturday night, Oct 30th, to be the HOP day, sat nite is generally a better deal than fri or sun, right?

Would the Melb and QLD and Adeliade (and anyone else) crews be willing to come to Sydney for it?

Posted:yay im so glad you guys like the idea, i tried to get this going last year, but it fell through...

OK we shall say NYC is the place for the east sidaz to gather.
what you need to do now bubblishis is find some one to film the process, and find a good locationj in or near the city to do it in.

erm, yeh we need a general editor too, i think we should go for Bluecat, kickass editor, as long as he doesnt mind that is...
so yeh, is there anywhere else we havnt got into the scene yet?
OH YEAH. NZ AND WEST OZ
do u guys reckon you could PM peeps that you know from these parts of the globe and request they look at this thread? (ive PM'd malcolm already)

Actually, there are other people who are way more qualified for organizing this than me - NYC usually organizes the NYC events. So we'll play it by ear. Not to mention that late Oct isn't always a fun time of year to be outside. But we'll find something. ubbrollsmile

Posted:well id assume for DVD for sale off this site, and i'd say about 60 - 100 mins, divided into sections from each gathering, ie one section from the london show, one from the NYC show etc.
id say in each section a mix of spinning action from groups and pics of the partys and individual bits of spinning, COL style, but no more than 20 - 30sec per individual (with their name at the bottom, of course).
the idea is so that people can see what other HOPers were doing that day to celebrate HOP day, as well as being able to put faces and spin styles to the screennames.
dyou think you catch ma drift?
safe bruv, knew u wud!

do you think you guys would wanna organise sumfing for HOP day 2004?


Personally would love to do something but do you think it'd be better for us to go down to london to keep things abit more central (it's only about 2hr train ride) or to organizes somthing in bristol which might make things easier to film. Thinking about it i reckon London would be better, it'd make more of event of it, if we can get crash place.


Maybe I should change this too something abit nicer, humm no I still think your all Ccensoredt
