West Virginia Good Sams announce campout

FLATWOODS — The West Virginia Good Sams Camping Organization’s fall campout is slated for Sept. 13-16 at the Holly Gray Park in Flatwoods.

More than 50 campers and 400 people are expected to attend the event, which welcomes tents, pop-ups and all types of RVs.

A big hit each campout is the evening campfire with popcorn made over the fire, singing and entertainment.

The organization is part of the largest camping organization in the world, the Good Sam Club. Each spring and fall the WVGS gather together for a camping rally for fun and fellowship and to promote the quality camping lifestyle.

Applications for campers and vendors to attend are available online at www.wvgoodsams.com and the West Virginia Good Sams Facebook page or by contacting state Directors Nancy and Jess McVaney at jnmcvaney@frontier.com or (304) 678-4077.

There are five West Virginia Good Sams chapters, each with its own Facebook page:

* Wild Wonderful Sams based in Parkersburg.

* Country Roads Sams based in the Summersville area.

* Panhandle Sams based in the Romney area.

* Almost Heaven Sams based in the Huntington area.

* Traveling Renegades based in the Clarksburg area.

During the camping season, chapters meet for monthly campouts of fun and fellowship at a different campground. All chapters are actively involved in volunteer activities in their community.
