Susan and I shared our first official campout as members of the Oklahoma Good Sam Club state staff with the Texoma Sams. The Texoma Sams are an Oklahoma Good Sam chapter based in Durant, Oklahoma. They are the largest chapter in the Southeast Region of Oklahoma and have membership of 20 rigs. The chapter had an excellent turn-out, which was held at the Checotah KOA near Lake Eufaula.
We receive no monetary compensation for our participation at the state level of the Good Sam Club, but the warmth and kindness bestowed upon us by the Texoma Sams made us quickly realize the great value of the positions we hold. Chapter president, David Crouch, greeted us at the door of our coach shortly after our arrival, and every chapter member accepted us as a part of the group.
Like our own chapter, the Texoma Sams enjoy dominoes and card games. And these folks take their games seriously! Below, Charles Allen, Wayne Walthall, and Larry Snider (Left to Right), participate in a group picture with their tournament trophies for "42" and "9-Hole Golf" (dominoes and cards).
They also know how to plan and prepare large meals. Thanks again to Larry and June Snider, and Wayne and Elizabeth Walthall, for hosting the campout; and our compliments to all the chefs for the wonderful food!
The group traveled to Henryetta, Oklahoma for an evening meal at the "Pig Out Palace." You can order "buffet" style or straight from the menu.
After dinner, Wayne Walthall and Craig Scavo proudly display their chapter T-shirts.
In appreciation of Texoma Sams' hospitality, Susan and I held a drawing for a few gift items.
We've probably passed the Checotah KOA numerous times, but never had occasion to camp there until now. It offers plenty of amenities, including a swimming pool, playground, rally room, laundry, and cafe.
