Welcome to the Georgia Good Sam Website
Letter from the Director....
If you missed the Spring Samboree, you missed
another great one. The weather
pretty much perfect
for Friday & Saturday with only a little fog/mist and rain on Wednesday &
Thursday. There were 406 rigs on the ground for the Samboree representing 23
states. We had 102 first timers.
Camping World supported us with an "all out
effort" to make our Samboree great. They had 24 display rigs available.
They held an ice cream social, a chicken biscuit and coffee breakfast, and
two corn hole tournaments down at the display area. Ralph Miller of Camping
World also cooked up 1200 hit dogs for lunch on Friday. At the last evening
ceremonies Camping World of Byron gave away a generator and a $500 shopping
spree. Thank you Camping World.
Our members donated 408 blankets to Project
Linus, 21 pairs of used eyeglasses to the Lions Club, and over a van full of
items to the Dublin VA hospital.
We also had the Perry High School JROTC Drill
Team do a superb synchronized drill team demonstration.
Our games were once again well attended with
319 participants. There were 171 that played bean bag baseball. All
appeared to be having a great time.
The Kempters, was
one of the best we've had. Maureen & Scotty entertained
evening, and then on
we had Patty Wazcak from Country Tonight
theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Since January, Georgia Good Sam has gained
two new chapters, Carefree Sams, Chapter 34 (Collins/Metter area) and King
of the Road Sams, Chapter 37 (Valdosta/South Georgia area)
is already well into the planning stages. Some entertainment has already
been booked, some vendors have already signed up and we are looking forward
to a great time at the “Favorite Sports Team” Samboree September 10th
to the 13th.
will be coming up in 2016. For that person
is interested in running if you will let me know who you are, it will be a
lot easier if you get with me now and work with me and meet the contacts for
setting up the Samborees.
Safe camping to you all!
Rick and Louise
