Hey Suncoast OA,

 

Your secretary here! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We (the board) want to update you all about a few things.

TEMPORARY MEETING LIST (CLICK HERE)
We've compiled all the current info about how our local meetings are adapting to closures and quarantines due to COVID-19.
*Please distribute the meeting list (attached) to your group members by e-mail and/or text!!*
Information contained in this document may change in the coming weeks. We suggest that members call or text the contact person indicated for each meeting to confirm meeting details, if there is any uncertainty. This is especially true for in-person meetings, which may be cancelled as legislation evolves at the state/county level.
*The Intergroup ZOOM Conference Line and phone conference line are still available for group use. If any members would like to use either or both, please contact us!
 
SUPPORTING LOCAL MEETINGS:

 

Meetings are the lifeblood of our local OA community, and in this time of uncertainty it is unclear when our face-to-face meetings will be returning to normal. Smaller groups may be worried that they may not be able to make rent in future months. It is the job of our Intergroup to support each meeting in continuing to carry the message to the still suffering compulsive eater. Should groups need support in the coming months, financial or otherwise, our Intergroup is here to help. Please reach out to us!
 

 

SEVENTH TRADITION:

 

Many of our local meetings have gone virtual, making it very difficult for members to contribute cash to support their groups. In order to continue practicing being self-supporting, we would like to offer members a few options for making 7th tradition donations.
1. Members can donate directly to Suncoast Intergroup via check, Paypal or Venmo. 
 
Checks can be mailed to: 
Suncoast Intergroup

PO Box 18594

Tampa, FL 33679

 

To donate via Paypal, follow this link: paypal.me/suncoastintergroup
You do not need to have an account in order to make your contribution. Please be aware that Paypal charges a small fee for their services which will be deducted from the total amount. 
 
To donate via Venmo, you will need to download the Venmo app on your smartphone and create a user account. Once you have an account established, touch the "Send money" icon (blue circle in the bottom right corner), then type in "Suncoast Intergroup". Our intergroup account should pop up, which you can link to and make your donation.
 
2. Members can donate to Region 8 or OA World Service. 

 

To donate to Region 8, follow this link: https://oaregion8.org/region-8/contributions and scroll down to the "DONATE" hyperlink mid-page.

 

To donate to OA World Service, follow this link: https://oa.org/contribute/

 

In closing, please know that you are not alone, and that your recovery can flourish amidst the chaos and uncertainty of the times. Let us know how we can help - we are here for you.

 

Together we can,
Cici C. 
OA Suncoast Secretary

 

 

 

March 24, 2020

 

All,

I'm grateful to say that the Monday 7pm Village presbyterian meeting had 21 participants on their telephone conference line last night!!! Take that COVID-19!!!

 

The Thursday 7pm Lutz group may also begin using the conference line as well - stay tuned for confirmation. Same number and access code.

 

The Sun City Center meeting on Monday and Thursday mornings will still meet in their current physical locations, however they will also have a zoom option available (see below).

 

The Spring Hill 10:30 AM Saturday meeting will continue to take place face-to-face. No word yet on a virtual option for that meeting, stay tuned.

You do not need to have a computer to join a zoom meeting. Zoom can be set up to be accessed via ipad, cell phone, or even standard dial-in line.
You can dial in from a land line (see phone numbers at the bottom of the invitation). Dial the phone number and when prompted enter the meeting ID number.

 

If you've never done this before, it may seem a little daunting, so dial in or login 15 minutes early to make sure you can iron out any kinks. Ask for help! Call the host on their private cell phone and they will help walk you through it.

 

Here are the invitations and meeting details for the Sun City groups:

Rest assured that if the city begins to require "shelter in place", there is space for many other meetings on the Zoom virtual platform

I cannot host all these meetings myself, though, so PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, I need volunteers to begin to start hosting meetings for their home group. You need very little experience and computer skills to do this, just willingness to learn something new. No one will judge you for not doing it perfectly! We are all in this together, and learning as we go along. If you are willing to host, please email and let me know. I'll send you an activation email for the zoom account. THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE for your assistance!!!

I hope to see some of your smiling faces at a virtual meeting soon!

Blessings and love,

Tara L

All,

 

Recovery continues to bloom in the nooks and crannies of our new situation. The Sunday 7pm Bayshore meeting had their first "hybrid" meeting tonight and it was beautiful for both those in the room and those on the conference line to hear friendly voices.


Tuesday 5:30 PM Newcomer Meeting is still meeting at Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, in the chapel, however there will also be a zoom meeting option as well. All are welcome, including newcomers! Please don't let the virus keep you away from a chance at recovery. :)

All,

 

Several meeting locations have closed or been temporarily suspended. This communication is a preliminary attempt to let everyone know what meetings are still open, and give you some resources your meeting can use if you physical/geographical meeting place is closed. Many situations continue to be quite fluid, so prepare for changes, but here is the information I have so far:

 

Tuesday 530 pm Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church is still meeting, but in the Chapel on the 1st floor.

Friday 6pm and Sunday 7pm Bayshore Presbyterian Church are still meeting.

 

Wednesday 745 pm Turning Point is closed until further notice. A phone meeting will be held in lieu of in person meeting. More information will be forthcoming about the details of the phone-in line.

 

An impromptu face-to-face meeting will take place tomorrow, Wednesday March 18, from 6-7 pm at Duran Park in Riverside Heights. It is an outdoor space with plenty of room for social distancing. The address of the meeting is 1298 W Coral St, Tampa, FL 33607. All are welcome.

 

All Suncoast groups are welcome to use the free conference call line to have members phone into meetings if they prefer not to be present physically, or to have a fully virtual telephone meeting. The number is: 605-472-5361. The access code is: 862160. If you are going to host the meeting, enter PIN 5386. Groups will have access to the line on a first come, first serve basis.

 

Other options for members who are self-quarantining are Facetime, Skype, and other videoconferencing programs (OA of course has no opinion on any of these).

The oa.org website is an excellent resource for finding telephone meetings. One I am familiar with is call Vision for You. Details can be found at www.avision4you.info. There are live meetings from 7-9am EST and 10-11am EST. The call in number to access these is 712-432-5210 and conference ID is 876148#. To access recorded meetings, call 712-432-5203, use the same conference ID number, and 0# for the most recent recording.

Online chat meetings are available at www.oa12stepforcoes.org or www.oarecovery.com.

Please reply to suncoast intergroup if you have further details about your face-to-face meetings. I will ask to have any updates posted at regular intervals on the website.

Reach out for help if you need it. Stay in touch via phone, text, email. You may be lonely, but you are never, NEVER alone. Trust that your Higher Power has a plan for you and all of us. Be well!!

 

Blessings,
Tara L. ~ Chair
Suncoast Intergroup of Tampa Bay
