Host a SIM Participant Group

What is a SIM Participant Group?

A Participant Group is a physical venue where SA members get together in order to participate in SIM, as a group, rather than as isolated individuals.

This is an opportunity to host an SA Recovery Day for your local fellowship with content provided by SIM. Participant Groups hosts are free to create a local schedule for their members, which might involve much more – meetings, sharing, meals, recreation, fellowship, entertainment, etc.

To establish a SIM Participant Group:

    • Sign up for the Marathon if you have not already done so
    • Decide for what period of time you wish to connect to the Marathon on 29-30 November.
    • Occupy a physical venue with a good quality wireless internet connection for the desired time.
    • Connect to the internet with PCs, Laptops, SmartPhones, and other devices, as required.
    • Participate in the Marathon with other SA members from this venue.
    • Provide a translator from English into the local language, if required.

      Some Ideas for SIM Participant Groups:

        • Host a group at your home, invite SA members to bring refreshments and enjoy a few hours of fellowship while viewing the SIM live-stream.
        • If your regularly scheduled meeting occurs during the Marathon on 29-30 November, consider streaming SIM as the “guest speaker” for your meeting.
        • Provide a viewing location for your local fellowship to drop by and view SIM talks throughout the Marathon and enjoy fellowship with other SA members.

Geek Camp History

The SA Internet Marathon (SIM) began in 2017 as “Geek Camp”.  We were a group of SA members desiring to use technology to reach sexaholics worldwide to provide community and fellowship.  Some of us had IT knowledge and many of us were challenged to learn new methods of communicating.  What resulted was a beautiful 24-hours of Worldwide Unity!

Geek Camp 2017

On 23rd-24th August 2017, SA members from all over the world connected together via the Internet for a whole day and carried the SA message to the still suffering sexaholic.

Channel A – a continuous series of one hour panels, where sober SA members shared their experience, strength and hope about carrying the SA message.  Each panel was hosted by a different SA service body, such as a Region, Intergroup or international committee.  All sessions were streamed live onto this website, where they were viewed by the 600 members who had registered for the Camp and been issued with the password.

Channel B – workshops, fellowship and entertainment. SA members who had registered for the Camp were given a confidential hyperlink which allowed them to enter the Channel B room. SA members from around the world then shared fellowship together and entertained each other. There was much fun and laughter.
