Our chapter began back in January 1977, in Sonora, Ca., (Tuolumne county), with a group of four couples and soon began to grow and prosper and thus decided to begin a Good Sam Chapter. As the chapter grew it continues to emphasize friendship, fun, and service to others. We do our campouts once a month, usually the first or second week of any month rangingfrom February to November. We are not restricted to any specific area or mileage limits. Our outings usually consist of 4 - 5 days, Monday - Friday. We play cards, fish, go sightseeing, play games, have potlucks, and do charity work and socializing.
Gold Nugget Sams is always looking for new members to enjoy the fun and excitement of our campouts. ....Come give us a try, you will be happy you did. Contact information listed below.
In spite of windy conditions and threats of electorial outages, the Gold Nugget Sams chapter had their Fall Festival at Flag City RV Park. Members attending had great fun playing games, doing a jigsaw puzzle, and lots of eating. Although the number of attendees was smaller than usual, everyone had fun. Joe and Sharon Dearing were our hosts and always made sure campers were engagedin activities and with each other. Out door movies have become a good source of comaraderie among members . We enjoyed two different movies from the Thin Man Series. Our week finished with a field trip to The Fruit Stand and ended with lunch at Moo Moo's burger barn in Stockton.
Everyone is looking forward to our last camp out of 2019 at Duck Island in Rio Vista
