New Mexico Good Sam





Chapter Location:

Members are from the Albuquerque metro area and the East Mountains.


How do I become a member?

By attending two functions, completing an application and paying the yearly dues you can become a member of the Manzanita Sams Chapter.  You must also be a member in good standing with Good Sam International.  The members of the Mazanita Sams Chapter are comprised of both working and retired adults.  We would encourage those interested in joining to be our guest at a scheduled function ( in-town meeting or a camp out).  This would give you an opportunity to learn who we are.


How often do we camp?

We plan camp outs for the first full weekend (Fri., Sat., and Sun.) of March through October.  The camp outs for April and September are scheduled at the State Samborees.    The other four months of the year we have in-town meetings at various restaurants.  Our camp outs are scheduled for Friday through Sunday, however, our retired members often arrive early or depart later.  The locations of our camp outs are normally limited to reasonable travel distances, especially for our working members.


What do we do at our camp outs and in-town meetings?

At the camp outs we typically enjoy games, tours, fishing, hiking and area attractions.   Friendship and fellowship among our chapter members grow as we have meals together, whether it is a potluck or at a nearby restaurant.  At the in-town meetings on the first Saturday of those four months, we enjoy a Dutch treat meal at a local restaurant.  We do have a business meeting at both the camp outs and the in-town meetings.


How much does becoming a member cost?

The Manzanita Sams dues are $20 per year per rig.  We also collect a rig fee of $1 per member per camp out to help defray the cost of a meal provided by the chapter.


Please come visit us!  We look forward to meeting you.  Please feel free to call any of the following officers with any questions.
