Minnesota Gopher State Roundup

Did anyone attend any of the Gopher State Roundup this past weekend? I went Friday night and listened to Jenny from Dallas speak. It was wonderful! They also did a sobriety thing where everyone stood up and if your were under a year, you sat. Under 5 years, you sat etc etc... One guy on Friday night had 58 years of sobriety! All by attending meetings and following the steps.

I saw the title of this Thread, didn't understand what it meant, and planned on throwing a jab at Minnesota sports (from a friend south of you )...Anyway, obviously I won't do that given the nature of what the Thread meant.

Sounds like it was awesome though! People that go to these types of things have positive things to say about them, and seem really pumped...I'd like to go someday...though I'm not in AA and not sure if its appropriate. Glad you had a good time though.
