Many Good Sam members have formed smaller regional clubs or "Chapters" of like inclined members to share camping outings and social gatherings. These regional chapters then periodically host large "Samborees" where members of various chapters and members at large get together for a mass themed rallies usually lasting from three or more days. We had never attended a Samboree but noticed in the monthly Good Sams magazine, "Highways" that there was to be one at Nevada Treasure March 10 thru 12. Since we were going to be there anyway we decided to attend.
Starting Wednesday the 9th the park started to fill up and by Thursday afternoon the park was full with overflow parking regulated to a dry camp area specially created by the park.
A huge tent was erected in the parking lot and many of the activities were held there such as opening & closing ceremonies,
morning coffee & rolls,
(here Teddy and our good friend Eva Syberden enjoy their morning coffee)
and a catered breakfast & dinner on Saturday.
There were game and card tournaments, a pet parade, golf outings etc.
The park has a large convention center and it was filled with various vendors including "waterless cookware", name badges, clothing, flags, books, RV accessories, and tour companies.
The theme was "Pirates of Paradise at Pahrump".
Saturday afternoon there was pirate costume judging at the pool area
several of the pirates forced the host chapter president to"walk the plank"
We had a great time and will probably attend another Samboree in the future if opportunity permits.
