Frequently Asked Questions
WHY DO WE PAY?
One of the most common misconceptions of the Aloha Roundup is that it is AA/Al-Anon meetings, and since “There are no dues or fees for AA/Al-Anon membership…” there should be no fees to attend.
The Aloha Roundup is a special event with workshops, not meetings. This event requires months of planning, preparation, and money to present. Since this event is held at the McCoy Pavilion there are also charges to use this facility. In addition to that charge our expenses also include printing, website, entertainment, food, postage, supplies, etc.
This roundup is self-supporting. No AA, Al-Anon, or outside funds were used to pay for this event. The ideal goal is to break even; therefore, the registration fee is nominal compared to a long weekend’s worth of entertainment.
Donations to our scholarship fund are greatly appreciated. The fund provides local members who cannot afford registration with the opportunity to experience this celebration of sobriety.
Members who cannot afford this nominal fee are encouraged to request a scholarship from this fund by contacting the registration chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
Admission to the Aloha Roundup on February 24, 25, and 26. All workshops, entertainment, and the island style buffet dinner on Saturday evening are included. The sunset dance cruise is not included with regular registration.
