2016 Co-Chair Letter

Believe it or not, it’s already time to start getting ready for next year’s Roundup. Hosting more than a thousand of your closest friends in recovery takes some planning, and the Board and Committees are hard at work. Our goal is to put together something special and as memorable as last year. The Florida Roundup is comprised entirely of volunteers who share a love of the Roundup and recovery. They are hard at work selecting an inspiring panel of speakers, organizing our wide variety of workshops, selecting just the right logo, designing fabulous t-shirts, and planning captivating entertainment along with the many other small details that make our weekend at the beach special. If you’re a South Floridian, then you already know how much fun our Fundraising Committee is having this year. Our first event, the FRU Family Picnic and Field Day, was an amazing success.

Registration is now open! Act now and save. The Florida Roundup is offering an early registration price of $60. The price will go up later in the year, so it is best to register sooner rather than later. Last year we implemented a new registration system that we hope will continue to make the registering process smooth. To sign up and purchase meals, please go to http://www.floridaroundup.org/registration-gateway/.

We are very happy to be returning again to the Grande Dame of Miami Beach… the Deauville Beach Resort. Many of us consider her to be our home away from home. Few venues in the area meet our group’s needs the way she does. The expansive lobby, workshop spaces, grand ballroom, proximity to the beach and affordability to a greater number of attendees keep us returning year after year. We continue to work with the hotel to ensure that your weekend is a stress free and enjoyable one. Please note that the hotel typically sells out. Remember, your credit card is not charged when you book your room, and you have up until 72 hours before check-in to cancel. So go ahead and start planning that vacation. For more information about the hotel, please click here.

Our wish for all of you this year remains the same as in the past—health, happiness and recovery. We hope that Florida Roundup will play a key role in that, as you meet new friends, renew old acquaintances, and continue to unpeel layers of the onion. May we be a warm, sun-filled stop on your road of happy destiny. We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us in 2016.

More exciting roundup details will be revealed.

In Loving Service,
