Don Pritts, R.I.P., pitch at Tanglewood 2003

I knew Don and a few of his sponsee's from Denver Colorado.  I went to a traditions workshop he put on at Happy Way years ago.  I know that Jim was very close to him. 

I'm gonna do my best to get these on here in a timely fashion.  I've found a quicker way to get them to the internet.  Sure, you could just go to XA Speakers and get this in MP3 format, but I thought this would be good to have on the blog as we seem to be collecting solid Denver old-school speakers.

Imagine all the lives touched by Frank, Don, and Bob O. (not yet deceased)...

Well anyway, hope the sound quality is acceptable.  Here are the first two sections of his 7 section pitch/workshop, with about 7 ten minute subsections per section;

  1. Patrick, thanks for taking the time to put these pitches up. Today is the one year anniversary of my mom's passing and I've been thinking a lot this week about the ones who have went before us.

  2. Patrick, I've got a set of cd's that Tom Uhl gave to me. It is Gary Brown and Bob Olson doing "A Day In The Big Book" in Santa Fe last year. It is good stuff. I'll send them to you.

    If anyone is wondering, Gary B. was Don P.'s sponsor in the old Denver Young People's Group. Don sponsored Bob O. Other members of that group were Big Frank McKibbon, Camille F., and Mickey M. A lot of solid old school sobriety came out of that group. All of the ones mentioned above either died sober or are still kicking and still sober.

  3. Cool! I'm thinking that it's wrong to put up pitches of people still living. What's your take?

  4. I don't see a problem with it Patrick. After all these guys are out there carrying a message and speaker cd's are just another way of carrying a message. They are all over the internet and you can get the cd's at any roundup or convention.

  5. " Go Slowly, Rest in God Often, Claim the Power to Work Miracles in the Lives of People, Everything in Order, Go Slowly From Duty to Duty, Everything in Order, Rest and Pray Between Duties" - stolen from the bulletin board of Don P. @ Williams St. Corrections Center, 2002.

  6. His demeanor and wisdom just calms me and has me thinking... "So this is what the world of the spirit is about!"

    He just makes sense of the whole deal for me.

    Sorry I've been slacking. I'm working on # 6 of 7 now.

  7. Don was the strongest, gentlest, kindest human being I have ever known. He taught me how to be a hard ass without being mean.

  8. Don was my grandsponsor. Unfortunately, he passed shortly after I got sober. However, b/c of the effects from the brightness of his shine.. I was indirectly affected by his work in AA
