Tumbleweeds like to camp and our activities are centered around this one activity. All of our rigs are self-contained so that we can enjoy the outdoors without being limited to parks and campgrounds. We embrace a relaxed camp style without formal, organized activities.

Annual Election & Planning meeting for the Tumbleweeds 2021 Camping Season
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: www.firehousesubs.com/our-food. 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).
AGENDA FOR THE MEETING
- 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. firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
IMPORTANT: BRING CHECKBOOKS or CASH
Annual Club Dues -- $15.00
Lunch -- $TBD
Let me know if you have any questions.
See you November 7th!!!
Thanks, Rita 😁

Update on the Good Sam Organization
1. Good Sam organization (club) will not be disbanded and will move forward. I am excited about the changes that are being made.
2. There will be new changes in what is expected from all state directors.
3. There will no longer be national rallies sponsored by Camping World.
4. There are going be a monthly video conference for all state directors. This gives us a chance to gather new ideas and to solve the problems all states face. I would really appreciate hearing all ideas and concerns that you have. Idaho needs a voice in making changes so we can have what is best for our organization. All concerns need to be heard, however please bring a solution with the concern.
As for Idaho Good Sam we will be holding a State Director election in the fall. Check the August newsletter for election details. This is good news for Idaho and I hope you are as excited as I am.
Stay safe and healthy,

I cancelled my CJ Strike reservations today and Cindy said Idaho Power is giving full refunds for any reservations being cancelled for virus concerns.

Cancellation of first two campouts
Monday, March 23, 2020
Interesting ... and sad ... article.
Has a nail been driven into the Good Sam Club's coffin?The new logo. What happened to the Good Sam man?
The Good Sam Club, the largest organization of RVers, is over as an active social club for RVers. All social gatherings have been banned due to coronavirus concerns, which is understandable. But what surprised the club's state and provincial chapter leaders was the line in a letter they received yesterday. "To keep you and your family safe, as well as continuing to follow the CDC guidelines, the difficult decision has been made to pause the Good Sam State/Provincial Director program, effective immediately." Bottom line, this means the social element of the club is finished — the club's two million members are now essentially members of a Camping World loyalty and discount program. Even the little Good Sam man is missing from recent logos.
Is Good Sam finished as an active RV club?

Hi Everyone! We hope that you and your family members are staying safe & healthy during this challenging time.
Earlier this week a note was sent out to customers notifying them of the actions that our team is doing to help keep our community safe. Our team is committed to making sure that we can supply the essentials that the RV community needs to make sure their home on wheels is functioning and safe.
Due to recent developments, the concern over the health and well-being of our customers and community continues to grow. To keep you and your family safe, as well as continuing to follow the CDC guidelines, the difficult decision has been made to pause the Good Sam State/Provincial Director program, effective immediately.
Q: Can we continue to host Good Sam state/provincial & individual chapter meetings?
A: At this time, all meetings should be cancelled.
Q: How does this impact our state/provincial rally?
A: All Good Sam State/Provincial rallies are to be cancelled. A note will be placed on GoodSam.com/Events that all 2020 Good Sam State/Provincial Rallies are postponed indefinitely.
Q: This is an election year for our state/province, are we continuing with the elections?
A: The Good Sam State/Provincial Director program is paused until further notice. More updates will be available at a later time.
Q: When will the program begin again?
A: At this time, the program is paused until further notice. We will continue to send communication to the team as updates are available.
I will keep you apprised as we move forward. Stay healthy and safe,
