ZANESVILLE OHIO — Relaxing in a comfortable folding chair under the shaded coolness of a camper awning, Marilyn Reigle enjoyed catching up with friends and taking in new sights and experiences.

“I’ve never been in Zanesville before,” she said. “I’m looking forward to the tours and good entertainment. It’s a relaxing time, and a way to get away from home.”

Marilyn and her husband, Marvin Reigle, made the jaunt from Beaverdam (near Lima) to Zanesville this week because they didn’t want to miss a few days of fellowship and fun.

They joined hundreds of like-minded RVers at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds for the annual Ohio Spring Samboree, organized by the Ohio Good Sam Club.

The Good Sam Club began more than 40 years ago with the goal of making RVing safe and enjoyable. Membership allows participants to share in benefits such as discounts at campgrounds, recreational vehicle stores, car rentals and emergency roadside service.

The official event dates are today through Sunday, but many decided to make it a week-long affair.
With uncertain economic times, fluctuating gas prices and other issues, participation numbers are down slightly this year. Wagonmaster Tom Nutter said 300 to 400 campers is the norm, but Spragg said preregistration for this first Samboree of the year was about 289.
