ONE STEP AT A TIME

12-Step Meetings

OSAT has two weekly AA meetings on Tiger Mountain, and a beach bonfire AA meeting at Golden Gardens. These are open meetings and you need not be a member of the OSAT club to attend.  A flyer for the Tiger Mountain meetings is available, and the following are materials used for OSAT AA meetings:

Golden Gardens - Shilshole Bay

Both current members and new folks are encouraged to come support this meeting at a gorgeous site looking across Puget Sound at the Olympics and the sunset. Come early and enjoy pre-meeting activities. Bring wood to support the bonfire.

Time:

Tuesday Nights at 8 PM     

Location:

On the beach at Golden Gardens Park on Shilshole Bay in Seattle. We attempt to get a fire pit for the meeting. Look for the tiki torches! Map of meeting location. Please contact Doug, Dave or Rick for more details. View a Map of Golden Gardens Park.

Tiger Mountain

Although the Sunday morning meetings continue throughout the year, the Thursday Night Meetings run during Daylight Saving Time only.  A flyer describing this meeting is available.

Time:

Thursday Nights at 7:00 PM (DST only )& Sunday Mornings at 10:00 AM (year-around)

Location:

The Tiger Mountain Tradition Lake Trailhead is on the south (right) side of the High Point Exit, Exit 20 (first exit east of Issaquah) off I-90.  Make two right turns to get onto the frontage road parallel with the Interstate.  Park as close as possible to the west end of the road to use the cable line trail or in the upper parking lot (see Note 2 below) to use the regular trail (recommended for first-timers).  
NOTE: Newcomers should not try to find this meeting alone.  We meet in the trees just below the summit of West Tiger 3. The hike gains 2,000 in only about 3 miles. Bring water, warm clothes, and a flashlight.

If you have hiking experience and feel you can get to the meeting on your own, here is a West Tiger Trails Map and the Summitpost.org description of the trails.  If you do not have such experience but would like to attend, please contact one of the meeting leaders using the links below for further information and help getting to the meeting.

What to bring on your hike to the Tiger Mt. OSAT-AA meetings

Please note that weather conditions vary on the summit of Tiger.  It is easy to get very cold after hiking up to the meeting, and then sitting for one hour.  When you have been sweating you can can get dangerously chilled even if it is warm out.

Bring a dry shirt to change into.  Bring warm layers like fleece, a down jacket, and a raincoat.  Do NOT wear cotton.  Bring gloves and a hat.  Hand warmers are also a good thing to have. Bring water, snacks, extra clothes to keep you warm and dry, and a pad to sit on.  A thermos of hot tea or coffee can be nice to warm up.

Shoes.  You can do this hike with tennis shoes.  You don’t need heavy boots but waterproof tennis shoes or light hiking boots are best.

We hope to see you on the mountain and just want to help you to get the most out of the experience by being prepared.

NOTE:   The Tiger Mountain Thursday Night Meeting only occurs during that part of the year when Washington state observes Daylight Saving Time (mid-March to the early-November). The Thursday meeting is suspended during Standard Time (winter). Please see the Calendar for the specific starting and ending dates of the Thursday night meetings.

NOTE 2:   This meeting is on Washington DNR land, and parking in the trailhead lot requires a Washington public lands Discover Pass.  If you do not have one, parking on the paved frontage road between the interchange and the gate is legal and does not require a pass.  For the Thursday meeting, please park on the frontage road, as the park gate is closed at dusk.

NOTE:
The OSAT club and the OSAT group of Alcoholics Anonymous are two different and separate entities and should not be thought of as the same, although many members of one also belong to the other. OSAT the club is intended for members of 12-step programs and their families and friends, but does not require that members also be members of recovery groups. We only ask that all members follow our traditions while participating in our events.

The OSAT Tiger AA meetings also maintain an email list for those who are interested in the business aspects of the meeting.  If you would like to be on that list, please contact Rena E..  Please note that this is not the same as the OSAT Club Echo email distribution list, which includes most members of the club.
