Annual Election & Planning meeting for the Tumbleweeds 2021 Camping Season

TIME TO GET READY! PLEASE RSVP so we have a head count. Thanks. 

Saturday, November 7th @ 12 noon
KOA Meridian Meeting Room
184 W Pennwood Street, Meridian

The KOA has asked that we use the door closest to the parking lot to enter and leave. The clubhouse will be locked. We are to park on the street outside the KOA. 

The room at the KOA will be sanitized, but there will be very little interaction with the KOA staff. The very nature of a KOA campground brings about a variety of travellers from all over.

We're providing paper plates and plastic utensils for lunch. We'll have bottled water, but if you would like something else, we suggest you BYOB (bring your own beverage). 

As a change of pace and to help our local firehouses, lunch will be from Firehouse Subs this year. They have delicious subs and salads and chips. You will find the menu here: I will need your order emailed to me by Wednesday, November 4th, please. Be specific on what you want or don't want on your sandwich or salad (ex: if you don't like onions on your sub and it comes with onions, be sure to tell me NO ONIONS). 

Jim and I will pick up the food on the way to the KOA. We'll let everyone know what they owe that day. A $2.00 per person charge will be added to your total for the KOA rental charge.

  • Yearly elections for Tumbleweeds Board of Directors. Contact Marcia Seibel if you are interested in running for president, vice-president or secretary/treasure or if you have questions. or (208) 631-4435. We can always use some new blood on the board! 

  • Election of new Idaho Good Sam Club Director. You should have already received an email from Jerry Robertson, the webmaster for the Idaho Good Sam Organization. There are two candidates for the Director position this year: Eldona Lounsbury and Charles (Chazz) Neher. I will resend that email to everyone in case you didn't receive it yet. This email contains bio info on both candidates. We will choose the candidate we feel will best fit the Idaho Good Sam and I will send our choice as a club on the ballot form after our meeting. The ballot is due by November 15th.

  • Choosing dates and locations for the campouts next year. Come with ideas and places where you'd like to host a campout. I am attaching a possible calendar for next year's campouts. Look at the dates to see when you would be interested in hosting a campout. There are 9 possible dates so, with 10 rigs in the group, we should be able to have each rig host a campout.

Annual Club Dues -- $15.00
Lunch -- $TBD 

Let me know if you have any questions.

See you November 7th!!!
Thanks, Rita 😁

Tumbleweeds: Mark your calendar

The annual planning and election meeting will be held at noon on Saturday, November 7th at the KOA Meridian. If you have a suggestion for lunch, let me know. 

We'll be planning the campouts for 2021 and electing officers for the upcoming year and maybe deciding if the Tumbleweeds are staying with Good Sam Club. 

I'll send out a reminder a couple weeks ahead along with a calendar of possible camping dates so we can come prepared to plan our campouts.

So mark your calendars for this very special meeting of the Tumbleweeds. 

Let me know if you have questions. 

Thanks, Rita 🤗

Tumbleweeds -- next campout

Many thanks to everyone who joined us at Three Island Crossing this past weekend. A good time was had by all ... despite the flies. The weather turned out lovely and of course, the food was great! And the campfire even better!!! 😊

Next campout is October 2nd-4th at Copperfield Campground in Hells Canyon. Looks like there are several sites available so come join us. And bring your friends and neighbors!

The wagonmasters are David & Julie so we should be hearing from them soon on the plans for this campout. I think Roy & Rosemary are putting together an ATV/UTV trip so I'm guessing we'll hear from them too. 

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to help!

Happy Camping,
Rita 😎
