The Good Sam Club has announced dates for the organization’s two scheduled rallies in 2013.
The first event will be held April 11-14 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at the Balloon Fiesta Field, according to yesterday’s news release. The second rally is scheduled for Syracuse, New York, at the New York State Fair from June 13 through 16.
“Many club members and RV industry personnel have been asking about our 2013 Rally schedule,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of the Good Sam Club and Camping World Inc.
“In 2012, we expanded our rally schedule to make the events accessible to more members. After the terrific response we got from both members and exhibitors at our 2012 Louisville Rally last month and at our Phoenix rally earlier this year, we determined that we would schedule two Rallies in 2013.”
Good Sam is still accepting reservations for the last of the three 2012 Rallies presented by DISH, to be held in Daytona, Florida, at the Daytona International Speedway, November 2-4. Entertainment at the Daytona Rally will feature country superstar Reba McEntire and American Idol’s Katharine McPhee.
“With an exciting location like the Daytona International Speedway, the outstanding entertainment, not to mention all of the great rally activities, we are expecting a big turnout and a great time for all of our guests,” said Lemonis.
Good Sam Club
The world’s largest organization of recreational vehicle owners, the Good Sam Club is committed to making RVing a safer and more rewarding experience for its 1.2 million members.
Founded in 1966 by Trail-R-News, a small California RV magazine, Club members originally promised to help fellow travelers on America’s highways.
Today, Good Sam’s halo and broad smile continue to signify friendliness among RVers and an eagerness to serve, although on a much larger scale.
Nearly 1,500 grassroots Good Sam Club Chapters from Anchorage, Alaska, to Okeechobee, Florida, get together for RV campouts, good times and community service.
The Club’s state and provincial organizations host RV gatherings called Samborees that likewise promote RV fellowship and philanthropy, only on a larger scale.
And the ultimate RV event, the Good Sam Rally, is held three times per year and brings together thousands of RVers from across North America to listen to RV experts, shop for RV headlights, tailpipes, and everything in between.
Hundreds of worthy causes benefit from the fundraising and volunteer efforts of Good Sam members, from Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Highway to Dogs for the Deaf and Serious Fun Children’s Network.

I am part of all that I have met
Yet all experience is an arch wherethro
Gleams that untravell’d world, whose margin fades
Forever and forever when I move.
