This is the 25th Annual Sioux Empire Round-Up and we are very excited to have a fantastic list of speakers available for you this year. Our 2014 motto is:
“But for the grace of God”.
The Ramkota still has many rooms left, so please come for the weekend and experience recovery and fellowship! We are very excited to have our new website open for on-line registration this year. We will do our best to keep all electronic information within the guide lines of the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. If you choose to register at the door or mail in a registration form, you are certainly welcome to do that as well.
Our speakers this year are sure to bring tears to your eyes, smiles to your faces and joy to your heart. We know that our Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous, says, “Each day, somewhere in the world, recovery begins when one alcoholic talks with another alcoholic, sharing experience strength and hope.” (Alcoholics Anonymous, Forward to the Third Edition, page xxii) We are doing our best to offer opportunities for these “talks” to begin. Many great events are planned in addition to the speakers. We have our Ice Cream Social, our Saturday night dance and many areas for small groups to gather and share a cup of coffee. (Babysitting is available, more details on location.)
A special thanks goes out to all who have assisted us with the 2014 Sioux Empire Round-Up. Especially, all the committee members and volunteers from AA, Al Anon, and Alateen, our speakers and their families, the Ramkota, Gopher State Library, all who have attended, and mostly importantly…the One who has all power! We look forward to having you all back for many years to come.
Finally, we ask you to consider one final thought. Over the past days/months/years, we all know at least one alcoholic who is not with our fellowship anymore, for whatever reason. Perhaps, this is the year, we reach out to them and encourage them to join us for a weekend of recovery, joy and gratitude at the Sioux Empire Roundup and perhaps we may all witness a miracle!
With Deep Gratitude and Service,
The Sioux Empire Round-Up Committee
