1) Possibility of Dist 21 Hosting a Hospitality for this year’s reunion held May 31 – June 2nd:
Feedback from Groups:
Miranda mentioned that they felt in their group that this had to be arranged by last Area, however this
is not the case. They expresses no interest after that was brought up. Pockets has decided to fund
scholarships to the reunion, the money will be used to fund Jenni to attend.
Keith from Sufficient Substitute felt that this had already been decided. His group focused more on how
to budget for the food. Spiritual Actions mentioned that they would not be willing to support this event in
Based on the discussion from the GSR’s present this event has been determined to not be the best use of
our funds, time and energy.
2) Any interest for the Alternate DCM Position? none – Jennifer mentioned she will not be able to attend
the May Dist 21 meeting as she will be out of town for a family wedding. Jon R offered to chair this
meeting if we did not have an Alt DCM by May.

$80 rental fee to reserve the shelter. We then need to pay a $50 deposit the Friday before and pick up the
key. We will return key and they will mail check back if “all good.
Do we want to invite Delegate to Picnic or GSR workshop at end of the year?
We felt that the delegate report was a better fit to the GSR workshop, then the picnic.
Discussion on how to get more new people to the picnic, invite a new person to the event, have them ride
with us. Discuss the history of the groups was mentioned.
suggestions were made to have some “fun” things at the picnic such as Hackisack contest or some
