Our History 

The Deal Men's Stag AA Group, our Humble Beginnings May 1996

The Deal Men’s stag AA group was designed as a takeoff group from our brother meeting in Fullerton, CA. 

The Dog on the Roof Men’s Stag Group will be celebrating 50 years of strong recovery next May. 

In 1996, some gentleman in Des Moines, IA. founded, or created a Stag group called The Deal. 

One of the members of The DOTR group was speaking in Cedar Rapids. 

The speaker happened to be the sponsor of Randy T., After his speaking engagement Keith spent a week at Randy’s home. 

While building a drag bike in Randy’s garage they discussed the possibilities of a stag group in Des Moines. 

After a small discussion in Randy’s basement they moved ahead. 

The first meeting was in a backyard at Mike T’s in Avon, IA. 

Attending the first ever meeting was Jim S. Mike H. Pat M. Tommy G. Jeff J. Herb H. Matt C. Mike T. and Randy T. 

The reading was on taking action to help others. Bill’s Story. 

The Deal was moved to the east side of Des Moines to the MCAT building. 

That was home for the next 3 years. Since that time it has been growing strong in the Columbus Hall on the south side of Des Moines. 

They initiated Recovery in Action to help others get on their feet and find a better way. 

The Deal Men’s Group is known for their strong recovery, sponsorship and service work in all areas of AA. 

We have a very strong presence in Treatment and Correction Facilities in Central Iowa. One of our main goals is to make a commitment and finish it! 

We know how to continue our sobriety and strive to teach others.  

We understand the seriousness of our disease and are willing to discuss the action taken to survive it.   

The fellowship, group outings, discussions and suggestions are all a large part in an environment full of recovery. 

Come and see what we have and you’ll stay,” it’s the best entertainment you can buy for a dollar.” RT. 

Stop in any Wednesday Night at 7:30 and you will hear many years of sobriety talk about how to do the Deal and live a better life.
