The West Virginia Good Sams Camping Organization hosted its state meeting Dec. 1 in Weston.
The meeting was checked off by playing the package game and the business meeting followed. Chapters selected their Samboree duties and fund raisers for 2013. The group also worked on a target list of how to give more pizazz to their chapters to attract new members of all ages to their chapters and the state organization and implement these in 2013.
Chapters reported on their charity work and membership growth since the September meeting. All the WVGS are working in the communities to help out in many different ways during the holiday season.
Taking part in the West Virginia Good Sams Camping Organization state meeting are, front row, Kevin and Kathy Robinson of Traveling Renegade Sams; and back row, Carl and Larry Pritt, assistant state directors and Don Jenkins, president-elect of Wild Wonderful Sams.
The 2013 Samboree applications were passed out. Everyone is encouraged to keep their chapter information and Samboree applications for a big RV Rally in their RVs and their vehicles in an effort to recruit new members for their chapters. Chapters were given direction on how to get all their meetings and campouts posted with their local media and on their chapter Facebook pages and the state Facebook page within a few days of each of their events. Chapters are encouraged to post their meeting and camping schedules on chapter Facebook pages
The WVGS are looking for new members and friends for all their chapters. For more information on Samboree, call WVGS State Director Don Wise at 304-482-7576, visit the website at www.wvgoodsams.com or visit the West Virginia Good Sams Facebook page.
