THEME: A Reason To Believe
Sep 03 - Sep 05, 2021
Greetings from your Roundup Sites and Policies Committee.
First and foremost, we hope this finds you all safe and well. Secondly, we want to update you on the latest regarding the South Bay Roundup for 2021. As of today, we know that we are not going to be able to open up completely, but with much thought and taking into consideration the uncertainty of what the requirements may or may not be in September regarding large group gatherings, we plan to go forward with a “Hybrid” Roundup for Labor Day Weekend, September 3-5, 2021 at the Torrance Marriott Hotel. A “Hybrid” Roundup would mean we would have limited “in person” participation as well as having “zoom” participation. Our theme for this year is “A REASON TO BELIEVE”
In keeping with that theme – we have “a reason to believe” that come September we will be able to have a yet as undetermined number of in person participants. We have “a reason to believe” that many of you will be willing to come to an in-person roundup and we have “a reason to believe” that we won’t be able to accommodate everyone who wants to come to an in-person roundup so we will also have zoom participation available so no one has to miss out. It is too soon for us to know at this time what the in-person registration number will be in September (this will be determined by state & county guidelines as well as the logistics and staff ratio required by the hotel)
To help us plan how all this will play out, we have set up a poll at the South Bay Roundup website to determine how many of you would like to attend “in-person” as well as those who would prefer to attend via a “zoom” platform. You can either click on link below or go to the South Bay Roundup website at www.southbayroundup.org and click on the "Survey Link" on the home page. Your responses will help us determine the best way forward as we continue to work our way safely through to the other side of the pandemic. We will keep you updated in the coming months as to the results of that poll and when we will open up registration, etc. It remains our goal to make this Roundup as special and unique as all the previous 36 Roundups and the only way we can pull that off is with your participation and the enthusiasm and love you bring to the Roundup year after year.
All that said – we expect to open up registration beginning of June. There will be a registration fee for “in person” participation but there will be no charge to register for zoom participation, but we will need to know how many we have registered so we can setup the proper platform to accommodate our total zoom registration. When you register you will also be able to purchase South Bay Roundup 2021 t-shirts. You will also be able to make hotel reservations at the Marriott. As always, we remain self-supporting through our own voluntary contributions so you are also welcome to donate any amount you choose in lieu of registration to help offset the costs involved for this year’s events.
We look forward to your participation and “have a reason to believe” that this year’s South Bay Round will be the best yet. If you have any questions, you can leave your inquiries on the website and someone will get back to you or you can leave a message on the Roundup hotline at 310-354-7660.
In order to get a better idea of how many people are coming this year, we would ask that you participate in a survey. SBRU Survey Link
God bless you and keep you safe!

Greetings from your South Bay Roundup Committee.
We hope this finds you all safe and well. The 2021 South Bay Roundup planning has began.
Please check out this website for further updates. We will keep you informed.
May God bless you and keep you safe!
Your South Bay Roundup Committee
Thank you for joining our celebration. Each person who comes to the South Bay Roundup adds to the power and magic of our program – that it works – it really works. Putting together this event requires the efforts of hundreds of South Bay AA’s, Al-Anons, Alateens and friends. Since last winter, they have put in their time, their talents and their love to make their party happen. We know they have received the internal rewards of spiritual growth, greater self-esteem and increased connection to others, but we would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them all. Some of them have been listed in this program and most have a ribbon on their badge. If you want to thank them personally...give them a hug!! (us too!)
The Southbay Roundup's purpose is to bring people together, so they can celebrate there sobriety with family and friends.
