Welcome to the Georgia Good Sam Website
Letter from the Director....
from the Director
didn’t make it to the Fall Samboree you missed a good one. The weather was
fabulous with just a little bit of rain on Saturday evening. Once that
brief rain shower went through the weather was great. There was a great
turn-out for the Samboree Prom with 18 contestant couples and a couple of
single entries. The judges selected Linda Barnwell as Prom Queen and Ben
Kay as Prom King and they were crowned immediately after the announcement of
the winners. We think (and hope) everyone had a lot of fun. Some of the
statistics as well as pictures will be found in other places in this
Sams with Mini-Sams Chapter gained two new member families at the Samboree
and is growing. If you or someone you know has young children that want to
camp and be a part of a Chapter please contact me and I will put you in
touch with Shannon and Peter, Chapter President.
If you enjoyed the chance to learn to drive an RV with
Ralph Miller of the Chattanooga Camping World Store and also the art class
and hot dog lunch and want to see more of Ralph please drop a note to
MLemonis@campingworld.com and let him know you
want more of the training by Ralph Miller.
Samboree is just a few months down the road and we are working hard to make
it a fun and successful Samboree as well. We are working on booking the
entertainment and should have all of that in place within a few weeks.
We had 250
rigs present with a lot of First Timers (41). We would again ask that if
you have some first timers camped with your Chapter please do the cordial
thing and ask them to join your Chapter at Samgo, Entertainment, and
whatever games your Chapter may be playing. The main reason our Treasurer
and Wagon Master parks first timers with your chapter is for Chapter
growth. By encouraging them to participate with your chapter you may just
get some new members at the Samboree.
We hope all
of you will again join us in March for our “Wearin’ of the Green” Samboree
named such as it starts the day after St. Patrick’s day and there will be
plenty of green available for costumes and table decorations for which we
will again have contests for each.
We will be
collecting blankets again for Project Linens (and Joan Anderson will be doing
a class on making blankets). We will also be collecting items for the VA
hospital in Dublin. The VA hospital plans to host another information expo
for our veterans at the Samboree. They plan on bringing someone from every
clinic at the hospital such as eyes, hearing, heart, and others. Make sure
your veterans are there to receive all this information.
arrived officially and the weather has cooled down into the 50’s, at least
as I write this here at the North Carolina Samboree.
