About - Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.  There are no due or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.  A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.  Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

About - San Diego Spring Round Up

Leading up to the mid-1970’s, there were two prominent conventions in southern California.  The Southern California Convention that was started in 1952.  And the Palm Springs Round Up, that was started in 1960.

Both of these events were very  popular and well attended.  The convention agendas included breakfast, lunch and banquet dinners with great speakers, plus entertainment and sporting events.

The combination of enthusiasm created by these events and the fact that AA was growing very fast during the1970’s, caused some AA’s in San Diego to think about and work toward starting their own event.

After a couple years of coordinating and planning meetings, the San Diego Spring Round Up (SDSRU) kicked off in 1978. And, from its very first year, this event has been a positive influence on those in attendance and has generated enough revenue to cover expenses, maintain a prudent reserve and make 7th Tradition contributions to various AA service entities.

At this writing, forty years later, it seems fair to say that the SDSRU has achieved it’s purpose, as stated in the excerpt (screen shot) of the original Policies shown below:
