March 11, 2021
Due to the COVID-19 effects which put the Good Sam program in a pause mode, the support of large group gatherings has been halted by Good Sam. Therefore, we regret to announce that the 2021 Annual Iowa Good Sam RV Rally will not be held again this year. (This also applies to meetings of staff). This is out of the concern for everyone's health, Good Sam is committed to making sure the RV Community is safe.
Good Sam is not sanctioning any gatherings at this time. If one is planned, it is on your own. When we receive more information on future gatherings, this will be passed on to you.
IOWA GOOD SAM
Hello!! We are happy , proud, and excited to become your new Iowa Good Sam State Directors.
We have been members since 1998, and we have been the Central Iowa Asst Directors for 6 years during these years we have had a chance to meet a lot of people along with making many friends.
Dale retired from MidAmerican Energy where he had worked for 38 years as an Accounting Manager. Cheryl Also worked at MidAmerican for 16 years and runs a small business from home.
We have 7 children, 12 grandchildren and many furry family members. Currently, we are in University Park and are moving this summer to a new home.
We, like many of you, started camping in a tent (in the rain first time out) and gradually moved up to a 5th wheel. Over our 30 years we have camped in many places and made many new friends. We have had so much fun!
We look forward to working with Iowa State Staff, who in our thoughts are the"BEST" and to continue to increase our membership and increase Rally attendance.
Have a safe and fun camping season!!

What is Good Sam:
The Good Sam RV Club has been in existence since 1966. Get acquainted with the greatest club on wheels! The club is made up of Chapters, groups of people who have like interests and like to camp together. The Chapters provide fun and fellowship for it’s members. Good Sam is a nonprofit with any monies collected at events going to Charities. Each state has an annual rally which are coordinated by Good Sam members who donate their time and energy to create these events. We are always looking for folks who like to RV, bringing them together in fun and exciting ways.
