Letter from the Director....

Hello....                           

 

If you missed the Spring Samboree, you missed another great one. The weather was 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.

 Thursday evening’s group, The Kempters, was well received and one of the best we've had. Maureen & Scotty entertained on Friday evening,  and then on Saturday night 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)

The Fall Samboree 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

Elections for State Director will be coming up in 2016. For that person that 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!
