Welcome and thank you for visiting the Kansas Good Sam Club Web Page. We are Bill and Sheila Tucker, the Kansas Good Sam Club State Directors. We live in Mulvane Kansas and participate with Ninnescah Good Sam Chapter.

If you are visiting the web page for the first time, we hope you browse the web-site and see what Kansas Good Sam Club has to offer. We strive to provide you with as much information as possible to let you know the friendships, fellowship and fun that we enjoy throughout the years. We hope you enjoy the Kansas Good Sam Web page. If you have any questions please send an email to us at trikingamerica@gmail.com . We will answer it as quickly as we can. If it is during camping season, that is what we will be doing, so a little delay in responding may happen. While you are on the web page go to the chapter section and look up the chapter near you. You might find that chapter life as a RV camper is what you would really enjoy.

Good Sam Club is an informal, social organization of proud, unique and special people, Camper Owners. The national Good Sam was formed in 1966 when a handful of RVers put Good Samaritan Bumper Stickers on the road and in campgrounds, on their rigs so fellow members would know they could get help on the road. From this small club we grew. In the early days, Good Sam Members spread the word at RV Parks and other Club events. Soon many wanted to know how to get a "Good Sam" smiling "face decal". You should belong to a local chapter for the fun, fellowship, games, travel, eating, craft, love of the outdoors, camping with new friends that have the same interest as you do, and an opportunity to exchange ideas, share safety and Maintenance information related to camping and the chapters. So check out the Chapters in your area on this web site.

Good Sam is a family orientated organization without political or religious affiliations or influence and support civic, local, police, charities and government organizations. Kansas Good Sam State organization publishes and distributes to the membership the "Kansas Good Sam News". It is a newsletter published twice a year. It is the vehicle for the Chapters to write articles, send pictures of the chapter activities which will inform, educate, entertain and enlighten the members throughout the state.

Good Sam Values:

Friends- Good Sam members are men and women from all walks of life with varied interest and background.

Fun- As a family organization, Good Sam has certain fun groups that go to restaurants, picnic and campouts scheduled. We also have chapters that include being involved with charities, small or large events across the state.

Knowledge- While generalization about a group of individuals as large as Good Sam Organization is difficult. The membership is willing to share their knowledge and experiences.
Good Sam members like to be independent thinkers, fun-loving, generous, adventurer’s cooperative and unfazed by the natural of challengers of camping in the rain, temperature extremes or camping uncertainties.

State provided:

The state Good Sam Club has a state rally every year. It give the attendees an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones while participating in the many activities, games, eating, visiting the vendors and just having fun. And the ice cream social is good. It follows the Cake walk activity. Can’t beat cake and ice cream with friends, old or new ones.

The state is divided into four areas. Each area has an Assistant State Director as a source for the Chapter Presidents to go to if needed . Some of the areas have their own mini rally to start the camping season. Those area rallies are usually in April. Then the state rally in September / October. The 2021 State Rally starts with early bird arrivals September 26 -29. Then the rally officially starts Thursday September 30 and goes until October 3, 2021 at the Kansas State Fair Grounds, Hutchinson Kansas.

The registration form for the State Rally will be on the Web Site. COME AND ENJOY THE FUN FAMILY AFFAIR!
