We can't make it either due to school. We may go on the Jan 2-4th dates but have not committed yet.

The date was set before the last one was completed in Jan. '08 with the majority in agreement. Devoman is the organizer of this rally and this is the weekend that he felt would be the least conflict for the most attendees. Ultimately, as organizer, it is his decision which weekend to have it.

I am not complaining about the date and not the least bit interested in changing it, I am disappointed that I will not attend due to my sonís school schedule. What I am trying to find is others are in the same situation and are interested in attending the earlier weekend. Once we have a group we can open another thread. I truly hope you donít mind this slight inconvenience to help fellow forum members enjoy the fun of owning trailers.

News to me, I don't want to make waves.

But from the beginning I was always under the impression the the root of the meaning of the "Can Opener" was the beginning of the year as in first weekend.

Maybe there is a minority that would prefer the earlier weekend.
If so, great if not not.

But the school thing is an issue for some, and that weekend is kinda New Years week end.

history is fuzzy thing...

reading from post #1289 (and onward, about 20 posts) from last year...

i come away with a different impression entirely m'mate...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...-35478-13.html

but history is fuzzy and decision making sometime vague.

the sand, sunsets, mild weather, local flavors and campground will be there both weekends...

and i'll guess that 'streamers will be there both weekends too...

opening cans, popping tops and enjoying each other.

how' bout the world LONGEST rally?

or a 'pre can NEW YEARS rally, rally thread' to ad to the mix?

cheers

Schedule

I have made my reservations for the 1-9-09 date. If I remember correctly, these dates were picked out because of complaints about the earlier schedule. There is no way everyone will be happy with what ever date is picked. If you can come - Hurray, if you can't and want to, it's a shame.

I,, for one want to give special thanks to Steve (and all event organizers) for all the time, stress, and effort it takes to put on a rally.

So if someone wants to organize a rally on a date more compatible with their personal schedule, do it, have fun, make new friends but do it independent of this scheduled event

Done, see "First Weekend Shindig" thread. Thanks for your understanding.

I posted this but never had an answer?

Perhaps a new thread is in order not to disrupt this one.

Not to argue the point, but while the official date didn't hit the forums until post 1310, Steve had already made the decision on Saturday at the rally before the Tour of Homes began. I know a lot of us were hoping he would change the date, but the date became official after we got back. I made my reservation in February to make sure I got the site I wanted and to make sure no one beat me to it. Looks like I hurried for nothing since there are a lot of sites still available.

If there is a pre-rally rally, then that's great for those who can't make it the weekend of the 9-11. It will kind of takes the wind out of the sails for this one, but that is certainly everyone's prerogative.

Since I can't attend this one I had no wind in my sails, I felt the same way as you when I became aware of the later date. I see no difference you go when you can and enjoy as many as you can. I assume you may have many who will span both weekends. Enough said I hope to be back on schedule for the can opener next year.
