    Re: We need an HCMA Flash Mob

    It would be nice to have a flash mob at the general meeting... it's not that hard to do, just make up a routine, upload it to youtube so anyone around the world can practice in the weeks leading up to it, and that's about it, the cue trigger sounds and you're in business on the scene... hopefully with camera people in place so those of us who can't get to the meeting can see it too!

    This would bring great attention to the HCMA meeting! Flash mobs may be quite common these days, but they're still something people like.

      OK - A bunch of cardiac patients dancing? There goes the insurance rider for the conference! Yes, this would be fun and I'm sure all would enjoy it. Your all welcome to put something together. Frankly, rhythm was bred out of my tribe centuries ago.

          Well if you get Barry Maron or Harry Lever dancing around in your flash mob, be sure to get some good film footage.

                Yes, by all means post the YouTube link for those of us who cannot attend!

                I can't wait to see the dancing defibrillators, choreographed chest pains and syncopated syncope!

                But everyone please remember to take your prophylactic antibiotics in anticipation of this thing going viral!

                  Wow, someone's actually going to do this? I just thought it looked cool.

                    That would be an awesome attention-grabber for the HCMA if we could get the video to go viral! It would also go far to dispel the notion that HCM'ers are a bunch of couch potatoes (yes I just can't let that one go) who can't be physically active and enjoy ourselves.

                        I could see Marty getting his freak on, but big daddy? Probably not. Harry Lever... I'd pay good money to see up and dancing. Don't know much about the Mayo folks but Ommen seems pretty cool so I'm not gonna bet either way.

                        Regardless it's all just good clean fun.
