The Good Sam Club recently wrapped up the first of our 2012 Rallies, presented by DISH, where 3,370 RVs all filled with happy campers packed onto the grounds at the Phoenix International Raceway. Arizona Rally-goers were royally entertained by none other than Bill Cosby, Martina McBride, Bowzer from Sha Na Na and the popular Beatles tribute band Ticket to Ride. In total, 8,000 Phoenix Rally participants shopped at more than 350 exhibitor booths, marveled at 500 new RVs on display and even test-drove a few motorhomes on the racetrack! With hundreds of informative RV-lifestyle seminars under their belts, Rally guests left the event feeling not only more knowledgeable and well entertained, but they also made new friends from across the continent.
Now it’s time to gear up for the next 2012 Good Sam Rally, presented by DISH, taking place June 21–24 in Louisville, Kentucky. This Rally venue is one of the best in North America — the Kentucky Exposition Center, where all of the activities, including the RV exhibits and evening entertainment, will be housed under one air-conditioned roof! Best of all, the early bird registration discount price has just been extended until May 15, 2012.
Once again, the Good Sam Rally will present outstanding entertainment each evening in the expo center’s acclaimed Freedom Hall. Rally-goers can sing along to “The First Cut Is the Deepest,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on my Head” and “All the Gold in California,” because the headline entertainment features superstar and Grammy winner Sheryl Crow, Grammy-winning composer and musician Burt Bacharach and Country Music Association Award winners the Gatlin Brothers. They can also shake their hips to “Jailhouse Rock” during the Elvis-impersonator contest for Rally guests. Word has it that the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll himself (or a reasonable facsimile) may also be in the building!
Seminars presented by the RV community’s leaders and experts will also take place in Louisville. Propane safety, RV tires, improving engine performance, crafts, healthy cooking and eating on the road are just some of the 130-plus seminars included in the Rally fee. Kids and grandkids will be kept busy with our highly regarded children’s program. And Rally-goers’ traveling pups aren’t left out, as they compete in the popular dog show and pet parade.
Some new Rally activities were introduced in Phoenix, and they’ll be offered again in Louisville. Rally guests will have the opportunity to win thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes at daily drawings by earning “Smiles” they can enter in the raffle. We’ll also take time to salute our veterans, with members of each branch of the armed services invited to march in the procession. Don’t delay — take advantage of the early bird discount by registering prior to May 15, 2012.
The Good Sam Club also offers a third Rally in 2012, presented by DISH, November 2–4, in Daytona, Florida at the impressive Daytona International Speedway. Save money by registering for both the Louisville and Daytona Rallies today!
