Just Days Away Now

Can you believe it? It’s almost here. Two years of preparations comes down to this. We are preparing all of the details so that you all can enjoy this upcoming extravaganza. You get to absorb a heavy dose of sobriety from our workshops, speaker meetings, and fellowship. We have nightly entertainment following each of our evening speaker meetings. There will be something for just about everyone!!! One of the favorite things about our convention is that it is right on the beach. If you wish you can always take a break and take a walk on the beach or get some vitamin D from the sun. Plus, being on the beach means all of our sporting events except golf are out on the beautiful Fort Lauderdale sand. Remember to be respectful of the ancient mariners, our native sea turtles, that nest on our beaches. At one of our previous convention meditation meetings some of these baby sea turtles came out for some of that AA spirituality.

Just a reminder, there will be some construction going on before and after our convention at the hotel. But rest assured from Wednesday, August 3rd through Sunday, August 7th, the dates of our convention, there will be no construction taking place. The only thing that will affect us, during our dates, is the entrance into the hotel will be moved and as a result we get the whole lobby area for our registration tables! Talk about a silver lining!! Also unfortunately the Spa has decided to do renovations this same time period and that will not be available to us during the dates of our convention. But seriously, with all we have going on, who has time for the Spa.

I know a lot of you are looking for banquet tickets now that they are sold out. Well don’t fret, there are some that are unable to attend and are willing to sell their tickets. Visit our private Facebook page where you all can barter away with each other.
