Enjoy the good times at The Good Sam Rally in Phoenix, presented by DISH Network, March 22 – 25, and delight in our top notch entertainment….Martina McBride and Bill Cosby! We hope that you will be joining us for four full days of fun and excitement at the Phoenix International Raceway.
The entertainment for our 2012 Phoenix Rally is firming up, and we hope that you’ll be there to experience it! We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be featuring country music’s 4-time winner of Female Vocalist of the Year, superstar Martina McBride! And it doesn’t stop there…..we’re privileged to welcome everybody’s favorite comedian, Bill Cosby.
A Kansas native, Martina McBride started her recording career in 1992, with the album, The Time Has Come. This was followed by another album, The Way That I Am, containing such hits as “My Baby Loves Me” and “Independence Day”, which won Video of the Year and Song of the Year from the Country Music Association. Since then, she’s been recording a solid line of popular hits, including “A Broken Wing”, “Happy Girl” and “Wrong Again”.
In 2003, McBride’s single, “This One’s for the Girls” became a hit not only in country music, but also on the contemporary charts. She followed it up with “In My Daughter’s Eyes”, and the following year, (after wins in 1999, 2002, and 2003), won the CMA’s Female Vocalist award for the fourth time, tying with Reba McEntire for the most wins in that category.
McBride’s eleventh album, appropriately called “Eleven”, has just been released this week. She’s introducing it not in New York or Los Angeles, but in a unique train tour around the United States, making eleven stops and raising money for breast cancer research. Included in the album is the song “I’m Gonna Love You Through it” an inspirational and powerful song telling about love and support for those suffering with breast cancer.
In the 1960s, Bill Cosby’s stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win eight Gold Records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with the The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom.
With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts. We look forward to welcoming him to his first Good Sam Rally!
We’re also delighted to bring back our favorite Beatles tribute band, Ticket to Ride, who entertained us at our Redmond Rally back in 2007. It’s a great chance to sing along to all those fabulous Beatles’ hits. In addition to the huge trade show with the latest and greatest RVs of all shapes and sizes, not to mention all the RV accessories, here’s a quick update of even more plans underway:
We’ll be offering four full nights of quality professional entertainment, plus hundreds of informative seminars which will teach you more about the RV lifestyle. And, our huge trade show, displaying hundreds of the latest RVs of all shapes and sizes, plus 300+ exhibit booths with all the RV accessories you’d ever need, will all be in operation right in the infield. You’ll even have a chance to test drive new motorhomes around the track….for the closest thing to a NASCAR experience in an RV!
And there’s more:
We’ll have prizes galore! Camping World is again sponsoring the Rally’s most popular game…Match N Win! Find another Rally attendee who matches your Match N Win number, and you’ll not only win a prize, but be eligible for even more! And throughout the Rally, you’ll be able to earn extra Good Sam “Smiles”…..tickets you can use for our major prize drawings!
Our optional tour buffet is growing by the second! Arizona is a fascinating world of its own, and it will be hard to choose which destinations to visit. Here’s what we have confirmed to date: walking tours of Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix; the beautiful red rocks and amazing crafts found in Sedona; tours of the Heard Museum in Phoenix – one of the world’s finest destinations for American Indian arts and culture; the annual Renaissance Fair in Apache Junction; hot air ballooning, reserved tickets to spring training baseball games, and lots more to come!
All veterans are invited to participate in Coast to Coast Resorts’ Veterans Salute. Strap on your marching boots, bring your old uniform, (well, whatever still fits!) and show your patriotism by joining fellow veterans in our first Veterans Parade!
Our traditional Community Service Day will be Tuesday, March 20….a chance for Rally guests to give back to the communities we visit. We’ve just confirmed a cleanup project with the Tres Rios Wetlands organization. Tres Rios Wetlands is where the Salt, Gila, and Agua FriaRiversunite to provide a home for native species. As you can imagine, there’s nothing more near and dear to the heart of an Arizonan than water!
There will be a book discussion and book exchange on March 22. The book will be “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.
We’ve got a fantastic “Star Trek” adventure all lined up for you on early bird night, March 21. The West Valley Astronomy Club will be on hand with their telescopes to show you what’s in the heavens.
Good Sam will partner with Project Linus at all three 2012 Rallies. Project Linus is a nationwide non-profit organization that provides blankets for children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug!
