That's right ladies and gents. Pending our disbanding as the ESCYPAA I Host Committee, HVYPAA will be back in full force. We picked up some additions to our happy band of drunks over the past year, and we are as strong as ever.
An announcement of our elections will be made as soon as we can get a few things in order. That being said, ESCYPAA II will be holding their host committee elections on October 4, 2015 in Rochester, NY. Please use the form below to request more information on this. We are happy to be back, and look forward to another year of sobriety and fun with you all!
On-Line Pre-Reg for HVYPAA VI has closed. Registration will be available at the event for $20.
**SPECIAL NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CAMPING CHAIRS WITH YOU AS HVYPAA WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO PROVIDE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF SEATING. (BLANKETS WORK TOO!)**

A special thanks goes out to all who attended our BBQ at James Baird Park. The grill was hot and the kickball competition was even hotter (dramatic much?). It was great to get out and spend the afternoon with everyone! As always, thanks for supporting HVYPAA and our effort to carry AA's message and fellowship.
Just a reminder to everyone...Movie Night is tonight! Committee members are asked to be at Vassar around 5:00 for set-up. If you need more info, please see the events page.

We had a small crew out in NH for outreach, but it was a great time. Portsmouth is a beautiful town. Saturday night's main meeting was as energetic as ever, caped of by a gret speaker. We were happy to hear that we were a part of the NHSCYPAA with the best turn out in 8 years! It was announced that next year's conference will be held in Keen
Ok people, HVYPAA will be up in New Hampshire this coming weekend (March 1-3) for NHSCYPAA. Come by our outreach table for an entry into our pre-reg raffle and to pick up a BRAND NEW HVYPAA T-SHIRT.
Also, we will be holding our Speaker Raffle on March 23 in Kingston, NY. Details can be found on the Events page.
A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who helped make our Forum and Dance a gigantic success! We had an incredible showing for both events! YPAAs from all over NY showed up to express their desire for the rebirth of the Empire State Convention. It was clear by the end of the forum that the young people of NY are ready to being the state convention back. HVYPAA was there in force to express their willingness to do whatever they can to help make it happen! We look forwar to the next forum to see what the ad-hoc ESCYPAA committee has in mind to move things along.
After the forum, the lights went down and the music went up. Dancing, fellowship, and tons of Red Bull later the night was a huge success. YPAAs from across NYS had the chance to mingle with their counterparts from the north, south, east and west. NYCYPAA was in full force to spread the word about their NYS Unity Day to accompany the summer forum. This event will include a 3 hour boat-ride around Manhattan. Details cans be found on our events page.
HVYPAA has plans for a couple events in the next couple months. These include and speaker raffle in March and hopefully a sober movie night in April. Check back often for updates on our activity. As always, please remember that pre-reg for HVYPAA VI is available on
Okay Ladies and Gents, here's a few updates...
-February 16th is the Forum/Dance in Albany. Details for the event can be found under the events tab. Remember that if you pre-reg for HVYPAA VI, entrance into the dance is free! Pre-reg and dance tickets are both available on the events page.
-HVYPAA will be traveling up to New Hampshire for NHSCYPAA the first weekend in March. If you need a place to crash, be in touch with a group member and we'll do our best to help you out.
-The final design for HVYPAA T-shirts are approved and ordered. They should be available at our outreach table in New Hampshire. The design is super secret, but I think you will find that it's a MUST HAVE.
We had over 5 new members join the group at our meeting last night, and HVYPAA is looking as strong as ever. Those of us who have been on the committee for some time are eternally grateful to have newcomers joining regularly. For more information on how to join, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As 2012 winds down, HVYPAA will continue to not (wind down, that is). Before 2013 is here, HVYPAA will be in Burlington, VT for NECYPAA XXXIII (Flyer on our events page). If you're looking for us in Burlington, just listen for loud music, laughing, and probably a few "HVY HVY HVY" chants (just a few). As always, pre-reg for HVYPAA VI will be available at our outreach table.
FEBRUARY: We are hosting a dance with NENYYPAA! On the same day, at the same location, there will be an ESCYPAA forum. You can visit our events page to find out more about the dance. As for the forum, SHOW UP (or visit escypaa.org for more details).
All that being said, we need feedback for the DJ. We want the music at the dance to be the music YOU WANT TO HEAR. Click on over to the Feedback section of the website to fill out the virtual request form. I'll be working to get online ticket sales for the dance up and running soon.
In Service, Jay M.
