The Gopher State Roundup Board is proud to announce that the Gopher State Roundup is back on for 2021. Although the date is moving to September this year, Friday, September 3, 2021 – Sunday, September 5, 2021 to provide a little extra time to plan for the safety of everyone who attends.
Get ready to gather with your AA friends to share your experience, strength and hope.
2020 Gopher State Roundup, May 22-24, is Canceled
Announcement by the Gopher State Roundup Board
It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of the May 22-24, 2020 Gopher State Roundup. The Gopher State Roundup holds a special place in the hearts of AA, Al-Anon, Alateen members and their friends & families. Each year, many of us look to the Gopher State Roundup to refresh our thoughts, renew our hearts, and prepare us for the spring and summer ahead. Gopher State is a boost to our sobriety that draws us to a happy time with friends and family. It reminds us of where we have been, encourages us to grow, and leaves us inspired to do more.
With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot see a safe way to hold Gopher State XLVII on May 22-24, 2020. The Board is committed to holding Gopher State XLVII, however; it is not clear when that will be. We are actively looking at other alternatives and will provide updates as solutions become clear.
Please keep safe and stay sober.
Gopher State Roundup Board of Directors
The Gopher State Roundup Board is closely monitoring the COVID-19 “Coronavirus” Pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Please continue to look for updates. As of now, we are fully planning the event as scheduled. Use this link for more information or to contact us: via email.
Nothing ever moves too fast in AA, but after having the same website since it was originally hand-coded in January 2005, the site has been updated to a new responsive (ie. mobile friendly) design, a new hosting provider, and into a content management system.
Parking restrictions are strictly enforced during the roundup, especially handicapped spaces and on-street restrictions.
The site was updated with the theme and speakers selected by the Board of Directors.
