IDAA Annual Meeting 2013
Join us at the Keystone Resort
"The new and triumphant arch through which we passed to freedom" (AA Big Book, p. 62)
The 2013 Local Arrangements Committee (LAC) invites you to experience a "Rocky Mountain High" at the world famous Keystone Resort 07/31-08/04/2013
Located at on the west side of Loveland Pass, Keystone Resort is a short 98 mile panoramic drive from Denver International Airport. The site for the 2013 IDAA, Keystone offers 300 days of sunshine a year and multitude of activities for the entire family.
As its theme, the 2013 LAC has chosen to emphasize the four 'stones' found in the Big Book with prominence given to the Keystone of our recovery. A nationally prominent speaker is confirmed for the Saturday night banquet providing a refreshing and entertaining evening.
As always, IDAA 2013 will feature a variety of recovery programs for all family members who attend including AA, NA, Al-Anon, IDAA Teen, Ala-Twenty and the popular recovery based Jerry Moe Children's Program for 7 to 12 year olds. A program of continuing educational credits will be offered, for medical & dental. A special highlight will be sunrise AA meetings on the Continental Divide at the summit of Loveland Pass (11,990').
New attendees are, of course, the lifeblood of our conference. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our members, partial or full AA and Al-Anon scholarships are available for individuals and families in need. If you know of anyone who may benefit from the IDAA fellowship, please encourage them to apply for a scholarship on or after March 1, 2013.
Keystone Resort is a part of Vail Summit Resort, Inc and offers many amenities for your pleasure. A new conference center will be the site for the convention activities and is accessible by foot or free shuttle transportation from the lodge and surrounding condominiums. Because of its proximity to many other mountain resorts and attractions you are encouraged to consider renting an automobile. This extra cost is easily offset by sharing accommodations in one of the many condominiums which will effortlessly house a family of four and many of which are large enough for 2 to 4 couples.
The resort has two world class golf courses and a four star spa. Four different on-site restaurants offer a variety of meal choices. Biking, hiking and fly fishing are available as well as many scenic excursions within a one hour drive.
The 2013 LAC would like you to have every opportunity to experience a Rocky Mountain high where "its rainin' fire in the sky, [and] the shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye" (John Denver, 08/1972).
