Good Sam Club: Hat Creek campout draws a big crowd
The Tri-County Sams Chapter of the Good Sam Club held its October campout at Rancheria RV Park in Hat Creek with nine member rigs, one guest rig and one other guest present.
Several rigs met at the Cozy Diner in Red Bluff for breakfast on Thursday and then traveled together to the campground.
On Friday, members had a nice campfire going, roasted marshmellows and ate snacks. A Mountain Blue Jay surprised us by coming down to the snack table and stealing some of the nuts off the table. Friday night the campground provided four deli trays for our enjoyment.
Saturday morning, we held our meet and greet with lots of good food and conversation. Later in the day, we had a nice campfire and roasted marshmellows again. Saturday night, we had a catered tri-tip dinner put on by the campground and then held our meeting.
Ward Campbell of Red Bluff was voted in as a new member. Dennis and Louise Gibbons of Chico were guests for their first campout with the group. Sandy Abbott of Orland came as a guest with her sister, Sharon Furia. Pearl Divine, Barbara Huggins and Ed Pereira were appointed as the nomination committee for 2013 officers.
The Nov. 16-18 campout will be at Feather Falls KOA in Oroville with Wayne Barry as trailboss. President Richard Sol announced that the January 2013 state committee meeting will be held in Woodland and everyone is invited to attend the campout or meeting.
Anyone owning a self-contained RV that would like to go on monthly campouts with a great small group of campers are encouraged to call Wagon Master Lisa Sol at 385-1344 or President Richard Sol at 200-7403.
We are really encouraging interested RVers to contact us as we are still trying to increase our membership and we do have several new campers interested.
