Gold Nugget Sams

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.

JUNE 2018 CAMPOUT

GOLD NUGGET SAMS CHAPTER HAS JUST FINISHED UP OUR CAMPOUT TO RIVER POINT MARINA/RV PARK IN STOCKTON 3-8 JUNE.  A GREAT TIME WAS EXPERIENCED BY ALL ATTENDING MEMBERS (AND GUESTS) WITH LOTS OF FOOD AND DRINK. ALTHOUGH WE HAD 100+ TEMPERATURE UPON ARRIVAL,TH E REMAINDER OF THE WEEK  WAS WINDY AND CHILLY.  OUR HOSTS, JOE/MADDIE SOUSA TOOK REAL GOOD CARE  OF US WITH COSTUMES, FOOD AND A COUPLE OF THE MEMBERS ACTUALLY CAUGHT SOME FISH, BUT COULD NOT KEEP THEM. OUR BIGGEST "SENIOR EXCITEMENT" WAS WHEN (SEVERAL TIMES) OUR WAGON MISTRESS RAN THROUGH THE CAMPGROUND WHEN THE LARGE SHIPS CAME IN OR DEPARTED, CALLING OUT "DE SHIPS, DE SHIPS, DE SHIPS".  WE  WERE HAPPY TO WELCOME SOME GUESTS: NED/PAT NUDDLEMAN, WILLIE/BETTY BOATMAN AND LOU VETTER.

JULY 2018 CAMPOUT

The chapter has just returned from our July outing in Gilroy at the Gilroy Garlic USA park. Although the rig count was down slightly, there was great fun for those attending. Our hosts Rudy/Rose Lago ensured we had games to play, sit around and converse about many topics. As at all campouts, they made  sure we left the table non-hungry.  You should have seen the dessert table. Rose instructed some of the ladies how to do some stress related exercises. Being July, the  weather was very pleasurable the entire time. 

Our next outing will be at Sugar Barge RV Park in Bethel Island..5-10 August 2018.
