We Did It!

OA Big Country hosted region 3 for the Spring, 2016, Convention and Assembly. Those of us closely involved can tell you lots of things that went wrong…but many as well that went far better than we had any right to expect. This is your opportunity. Most of our posts are without a comment box, but this one has one. And we REALLY WANT you to use it. But to preserve anonymity, you’ll need a username. You can use anything you want. Some people can use their email description…for instance if your user name matched an email address of broomstick, we’d be pretty sure who you are! But if your email address gives away your last name, please make a username of first name, last initial or something else we’ll recognize. But if you want to be anonymous from us, as well, go creative.

In the comment form, after you create your identity, please tell us what you liked, what you learned, and what you’d suggest for other planning committees.

Again, we are grateful to you for making this work!

Now, use this link to register, then until the 20th of May, you can comment. The first comment is monitored for not-us users, then you can discuss at will. The link: http://oabigcountry.net/wp-register.php.

    What I liked: There was a sense of family. People cooperated, helped out, complimented those working–we were a family in the best sense.

    What I learned: The sign-up sheet for keeping in contact could have been done better. But then again, because of some issues many things at registration could have worked more smoothly, but again, the spirit of family resolved the issues.

    Clarification for how we would be charged for some meals was terribly important and could have been done better. And the registration form had issues to begin with, the resolving of which would have facilitated the records.

    Thanks, everybody!

    This was my first Regional Assembly. I was very impressed with all the speakers. I met a lot of wonderful people and heard a bunch of recovery. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    Hi Family!
    I liked being a part of a greater whole. Each doing what we could, God created something much greater than the sum of it’s parts.
    I learned, again, that recovery is more powerful and more fun when we come together.
    I suggest we have meals paid in advance, maybe a 1 or 2 week commitment date, with a few extra meals for purchase. And, I suggest a “Love Note” table, with writing supplies, so we can express our gratitude for shares, service and connection with other members.

    I look forward to reading more comments!
