Historical Note

The GAMMA organization is a social and athletic group of Minnesota which began around 1976. It emerged as people began looking for social opportunities outside of the bar scene. With similar interests in mind, a group began playing volleyball and attending several cultural events together. It has since become a formally organized social and athletic group with committees, membership and a large scope of activites available for participants. GAMMA is a completely volunteer run organization. GAMMA News emerged as their monthly newsletter, informing members of upcoming activities and events.
