Letters to the Editor

By Staff | Sep 20, 2013

Words cannot express enough our gratitude for your excellent coverage of the North Dakota Good Sam Recreational Camping “Samboree” 2013. The positive exposure you gave the group at the Pierce County Fairground demonstrated your support and introduced us to the community of Rugby. Truly everyone at the “Samboree” and everyone in town could feel the powerful excitement through your media. What a tremendous asset to the North Dakota Good Sam. Please extend, to everyone in town, our sincere thanks to all who were involved that made this a success. Your TEAM approach and creative solutions, as the need arose, have certainly led to the added success we had this year.

There was just so much excitement during the “Samboree” this year! I truly hesitate to list individuals for fear of leaving someone out. The entire community was 100% behind us-this year the business district, restaurants, the fire department, Lions, so very many individuals, City of Rugby, tours and seminars, all media venues, the Chamber of Commerice and Visitors Bureau through the never tiring enthusiasm of Shelley Block as the carrier throughout the community, all of your fabulous staff behind the scenes was most evident in the awesome participation that grew with each session. Certainly, you can take much credit for the new life and fire felt in our “Samboree” 2013! As Rugby is once again our host city for 2014, I am energized by the participation and volunteerism that is already being felt. Congratulations The Tribune and the City of Rugby! Every person on our TEAM is imperative to its success, and your contribution is felt and recognized in this excitement!
