The 2016 Wichita Fall Roundup registration site is under construction and will available in a few days. Online registration and payment options will be available. Additionally, conference registration form will be available for download. Please be patient.
The 2016 Wichita Fall Roundup is just around the corner and the Committee is hard at work to make it worth your time. The date of the event has been moved one week earlier than in the past: Friday and Saturday, November 4 & 5, 2016.
We’ve got a great speaker line-up which is just about set so be sure to check back. Even better, sign up to receive notifications of updates to this site!
The Roundup will be held at the same place as 2015, the Best Western on West Kellogg in Wichita, Kansas. More information about discounts on the room rates will be posted. Start planning now to attend. You don’t have to live out of town to rent a room — gather a few friends and make it a weekend getaway!
We’re bringing back a couple of the new (and popular) features from last year such as a raffle of terrific recovery merchandise and the bulk pricing of 10 tickets for $100.
So while you’re thinking about it, put the event date in your phone. Registration forms will be mailed to anybody who registered last year. And of course, online registration will also be available when the date approaches.
Have a great Summer!
The 2015 committee is turning it up this year by adding some new activities! Check it out…
NEW THIS YEAR
We’re holding the registration cost the same as last year–but were adding new Bulk Pricing on 10 registrations. Get 10 entries for $100 when you register BEFORE November 1, 2015. But even if you register AFTER November 1st, you can still save!
Take a chance on winning any of our great recovery-related merchandise!
Tickets will be for sale at the event.
Each speaker meeting will have a drawing to win prizes!
A free ticket comes with your registration.
We’ve added two AA meetings to the schedule this year. The first will be on Friday evening from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Another will be held on Saturday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am. These are in addition to the Meditation meeting scheduled for 9:00 am on Saturday.
Be sure to watch your mail box (or email box) for your registration form going out the first week of October. It will also be available for download on this site, and of course, online registration opens on October 1st. It couldn’t be easier!
Freedom is a key concept of our recovery. Between the Big Book and the 12 and 12, the word “freedom” is mentioned 11 times; the most popular quote is found on page 83 of the Big Book (the “promises”):
“We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.”
Come and join us in celebration of the freedom we have found through the AA program! Speakers and fellowship will be front and center. The popular Q&A panel is returning and we hope to have meetings held at the hotel this year. If you’d like to volunteer to lead one, contact us.
The dates for the 2015 Fall Roundup has been set. And we’re returning to the Best Western Airport Inn!

Another Successful Event
The committee would like to thank all of you who took the time (and money) to attend. The speakers were terrific and we were all laughing (and crying) with them! So while those of us on the Committee are soaking our feet, we’d like to know what you thought of the event.
Online Feedback Survey
Thanks to those of you who filled out the paper Feedback Survey. If you didn’t get a chance to do so, we’ve created an online survey that will be open until the end of November 2014. Click this link:
Feedback is vital to the success of every Fall Roundup so we encourage you to take a couple of minutes to complete the survey. Thank you again!
Get Ready — it’s coming!
