Welcome to Bordertown Sams
APRIL 2020 STATE RALLY CANCELLED
Hello Fellow Good Sammers
In these unusual times of caution and health concerns created by the Coronavirus (Covid - 19), we pray that everyone is safe and that everyone's health and well being are not effected by the pandemic.
This letter is being sent to all chapter presidents, chapter secretaries, ASD's, state staff members, and South Region Directors. Please share this information with your chapter's members and anyone else that finds it useful. FYI: This email is being sent to you using the BCC address to keep email addresses confidential.
As everyone knows, there are many programs being implemented around the nation to prevent the spread of the virus. We have been asked and requested to stay home, limit travel, not to gather in groups of ten or more, etc. As your Texas State Directors, Rene' and I pray that all will be spared from experiencing this health problem.
On March 20, 2020, we received an email letter from the Good Sam Club. As Directors, we are governed by the Good Sam State/Provincial Director Program. The Club letter is informing all state and provisional directors in the United States and Canada of the Club's position on the pandemic. Following this letter are portions copied directly from that email so that you also may understand the Club position.
We have also spoken with most of the South Region Directors. As we understand it, we have been instructed to cancel all state and chapter meetings. What this means is that all state rallies and chapter rallies are to be cancelled until further notice. Therefore, the Texas Good Sam State Rally that was rescheduled from April to September is now CANCELLED!!
Additionally, Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri are scheduled to hold director elections for 2021-2022 this year. We have been instructed to "pause" those elections until further notice. In other words, NO director election will be held until further notice this year in Texas.
Personally, we were looking forward to seeing everyone at the Rally in Canton and having loads of fun. Sadly, that will not happen this year. We want to thank everyone for what you do to support the Texas Good Sam Chapters and your local chapter. You are appreciated more than you think. Without you we could not function.
The Good Sam Club letter states that all rallies "should be cancelled". We support their decision. Stay safe, be healthy, limit group gatherings (<10 people), practice good hygiene, etc., etc.!
As your directors, we will continue to keep you informed of the Club's position and any developments that occur. We will continue to look forward to having your 2021 Texas Good Sam State Rally in Canton, Texas. Presently scheduled for the week of April 5-11, 2021.
