My daughter is attending Utah State this fall, so she will get to experience the foreign country that can be Cache Valley.

My stake had road shows in the 80s, but for some reason we haven't had any since, I think, the early 90s.

Ray USU is a great school and Cache Valley is a beautiful place. I think your daughter will like it here. The church members can be intense here though. I guess they can anywhere though.

Plus, she might get to be in one of those roadshows that seem to be extinct in other parts of the world.

I agree on both counts. She is excited to start college, and USU seems to be a perfect fit for her.

My little stake in Australia is having roadshows soon - ugh. Wasn't a fan of them in my youth; less of a fan now.

Oh, sorry. I guess there was no memo!

You'll miss them once they're gone :)

I love the fact that some stakes just seem to have ignored the advice to end them. Roadshow/no-roadshow is not a practice of 'the true church.'

I like to think that some SP will open directives and direct them straight to the 'circular file in the corner or the room.'

My last two BPs in UK would do that all the time (I was councillor to both). There was something from Elder Ballard (??) a few years back (Ward Mission Program or something)... BP read through it in a PEC and announced 'its complicated bureaucracy. We're not doing it. Just keep looking after the people who need it most'

Roadshows were stopped many years ago in the church??

Can we get that memo recirculated? Our stake has one this year and I have a feeling I will be required to participate...

They're definitely still a big event in some stakes here in the UK, but there is big variation.
