We are the Sassy Sams
 The Sassy Sams meet the first weekend of each month September through May. Our camping weekends are from Friday to Sunday morning, although many of us who are retired show up  on Wednesday or Thursday. We currently have 21 member rigs (although our By Laws permit us to have as many as 30). We quite often have 15 or more members present at a campout.     SS group  
  Our members live in Tampa, Spring Hill, Inverness, Ocala, Leesburg and areas in between.
   
 When we camp, we usually stay within a 75 mile radius of Homosassa Springs.

We are a social, friendly group of people. We enjoy each other's company.

We like to play lawn games, cards and dominos. We have Social Hours on Friday and Saturday afternoons, We each take a turn co-hosting a weekend campout. We often have Pot Luck suppers on Saturday night. Many folks carpool and go out to dinner at a local restaurant on Thursday or Friday night. If the women are not working on crafts for a volunteer project, they'll often head into town and shop. During the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) we have special dinners and programs.
     
    We have a number of charities we support e.g., Florida Guide dogs for the Deaf,  the Salvation Army Food Banks in Hernando and Citrus Counties, Toys for Tots, and the James Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa. Our main charity is Operation Helping Hand .   
   
Usually about 2/3 of our members attend the Florida State Samborees and some members attend out of state Samborees. We're very proud that in 2006, 2008,  2009, 2011, and again in 2013 we took First Place in the Theme Parade at the Fall Samborees. We were also voted Florida Chapter of the Year for 2009. Our Chapter was the first Chapter asked by the new State Director to provide entertainment at the 2009 Winter Samborees at Dunnellon. The Sassy Sams are Charter Members of the Florida Society of Fuzzy Puckers.      
  
    We welcome you to come to a Campout and take a look at us. If you’re interested in joining, we ask that you attend three campouts.  For more information please call or e-mail our
