Sweatshirt – 1990 Rockies I Convention

September 28, 29, 30, 1990: Recovery in the Rockies, First Annual, Park City, Utah.

Cocaine Anonymous was about two years old in Utah when the Recovery in the Rockies convention was started. Some members decided that if other Areas could put on conventions, then so could Utah. All the current C.A. meetings were in the Salt Lake City area, but it was decided to have the convention 30 miles away in Park City. They didn’t think anyone would book hotel rooms if the convention was held in Salt Lake City and they figured being in Park City would be a mini-vacation for everyone who attended. The time frame for the convention was selected because it was the off-season in Park City and the hotels were less expensive. As of 2018, the Recovery in the Rockies Convention has happened every year since that first convention in 1990.
