FRYEBURG — A group of recreational vehicle owners that has raised thousands of dollars for charitable purposes will meet at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds this weekend.

The Maine Good Sam Club will hold its fall Samboree at the fairgrounds from Sept. 10–12, with the first early birds arriving Sept. 7. The entry fee for RVs is $89, and the event is open to the public.

The Samboree will include:

— A back-seat driver competition in which blindfolded contestants wearing vehicle costumes must navigate a course using only the directions given by a companion.

— A ladies’ formal tea gathering.

— A hand tool swap.

— Crafts by Joy Harvey.

— Performances by humorist Gary Crocker, the Highland String Trio, and Dick Philbrook and the Frye Mountain Band.

A nine-hole golf scramble will take place at the Kezar Lake Country Club in Lovell on Friday, with tee-off at 8:30 a.m. and a $26 admission fee.

Other games, auctions and raffles will also be available throughout the weekend.

The club is part of the Good Sam Club, a national organization of RV enthusiasts. Their events have raised money for groups such as Camp Sunshine, Special Olympics, Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
