There are as many roomers
as there are members as to why people do not get in to North Coast this year.
The truth is, in accordance to state laws we HAD TO abide
by the rules as to how many people can be in the building.
It is not about "who you know" or how much time one has or has not . It is about the luck of the draw and snail mail.
From my own experience we hate putting the return to sender stamps on the mail and saying "no" to the folks on the phone. It really does hurt because we really do put ourselves in your shoes. But sobriety doesn't exclude anybody and a roundup is NOT sobriety. But it sure feels that way sometimes when there is a crying newcomer on the North Coast phone line begging to get in.
So whether you are an oldtimer or a newcomer come down anyway, this is indeed a family re-union for many of us. Who knows while you are standing in the sunshine with a sign, you might get to play a part in a miracle! Maby save a life, maybe it will be yours!
