What is a Rally? Once a year, the Good Sam Chapters of Delaware gather together in Harrington, Delaware, at the Delaware State Fairgrounds, and host a weekend of fun, fellowship and camaraderie. Campers do not have to be a Good Sam member to attend. The camping rally is open to all campers, whether they camp in a tent, travel trailer, fifth wheel, motorhome, etc. The weekend includes: entertainment, games, food, a flea/craft market, morning hospitalities and camping. In addition there are also raffles, crafts, contests, vendors and much more!
What is Good Sam? The story behind The Good Sam Club is four decades in the making. The club takes its name from the term “Good Samaritan” and came to life in 1966 when cartoonist E.C. Bilsland, Jr. sketched a dark-haired character with a broad smile and a halo to personify the spirit of Good Samaritan RVers. A group of RVers began placing a Good Samaritan sticker on the bumper of their trailer while on the road to let fellow RV families know that they were there to help. The idea spread through RV parks and campgrounds across the US and Canada until the club developed into what it is today. The goal remains the same as it did in 1966: to make RVing safer and more enjoyable, and save members money through Club-endorsed benefits and services. The Good Sam Club is now over 1 million RVing families strong and growing! Our Members have fun, stop to help one another and meet our responsibilities to the environment, highways and parks.
We have over 2000 active chapters throughout the United States and Canada. These chapters support hundreds of local charities as well as participating in civic projects such as Adopt A Highway, National Clean Up Day, Habitat For Humanity and many more. But good deeds are not all we do. We also have fun. Each year thousands of Good Samer’s attend gatherings we call “Rallies” which are held in most States and include activities such as seminars, entertainment, craft classes, ice cream socials, dinners and other events which make these a festive and worthwhile piece of Americana.
All campers are invited to attend the Delaware Rally, no membership required. Registration forms for the event are online at www.degoodsam.com. Vendors registration forms are also on www.degoodsam.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org to have form sent to you.
