The Redboine Sams are an active chapter with members located in and around Winnipeg. Beginning the 2017-2018 year, we have 18 rigs and 9 associate members. Four of our couples hold offices on the Manitoba/Northwest Ontario executive. We normally have a good attendance at the Manitoba Rally which enables our remaining members to assume the duties that are allotted to our chapter. We camp together once a month, May through September, at privately owned campgrounds within a couple hours drive of Winnipeg. Most members arrive Thursday and leave on Sunday. During the weekend we enjoy each other's company through Happy Hours, chapter meetings, dinner in the campground or at restaurants, lawn or table games and Sunday morning breakfasts as well as town outings to golf, shop or garage sale. At two of our campouts we organize a Silent Auction and book sale. The proceeds of these two events plus a Silent Auction at the annual Rally are donated to our chosen charity. Since 2011, we have sponsored The Dream Factory, a Manitoba based non-profit organization that supports children with life-threatening diseases. To date we are proud to have contributed $10,900 to this deserving organization. In the off-season, we get together for our AGM and Christmas dinner as well as breakfasts at Winnipeg restaurants.
Our Executive for the 2016-2017 year is: President: Ann Ingalls (Ray); Vice President: Ralph Bell (Barb); Treasurer: Richard Rohn; Secretary: Jacquie Rohn; Wagon Master: Jake Friesen (Bertha)
We always welcome new Good Sam Club members to our Chapter. There is no restriction on age, size or type of RV. For more information, please contact our President, Ann Ingalls.
