A group of recreational vehicle travelers has stopped in Valley City this week for a Samboree – a convention of Good Sam Club members.

Camper and RV owners who are interested in learning more about the Good Sam Club are invited to visit the Valley City Eagles Club, where the convention is taking place.

The Good Sam Club is an international organization, with several chapters across the state, dedicated to bringing RVers together.

While Valley City does not have its own chapter, club members are meeting here for their annual convention.

Luther Schoon, North Dakota State Director, told the Times-Record, "I'd love to meet with anybody who would be interested in starting a chapter in Valley City."

"I sure wish I could put one together," he said.

Schoon and other staffers will be at the Eagles wearing denim shirts.

In addition to bringing RV owners together, the club provides its members with roadside assistance and discounts to campgrounds and RV parks.
