It seems that Wayne P and his cohorts, no longer content merely with 13 stepping and generally 'grooming' (ie. abusing) newcomers (even getting them pregnant from time to time!), ripping off AA and perverting its principles, have decided to go into the Big Book business. Apparently the locals are invited to join other fellowships (what happened to the Traditions? Oh yeah We forgot....they wouldn't apply in a cult group would they!) at the above venue (slightly edited .. we don't want to encourage them) where they will be subjected to the 'expertise' of various imported (and no doubt carefully vetted) 'authorities' (but see Dr Bob, The Fundamentals – In Retrospect, AA Grapevine, 1948 esp. “no special interpretations” para. 3) . Along the way they will be startled to learn that the AA message has now become so distorted (or diluted – take your pick) that hardly anyone gets sober any more.... and even if by some extraordinary accident of fate (eg. attending AA meetings) they do it will be the 'wrong' kind of sobriety.... blah di blah di blah – you get our gist we think!

PPS If you want our opinion (yeah yeah .. we know all about opinions) … or even a suggestion perhaps …you might more profitably employ your time finding yourself a piece of newly painted wall and watching it dry! We assure you that this will be incomparably more interesting (and sobering) than attending the above farce!!
