CANOPENER 2012 |January 6-8

CANOPENER 2012 JANUARY 6th - 8th


7525 W.Scenic Highway 30 A

Santa Rosa Beach,Florida 32459


It’s time to plan for that “special” January event that starts the New Year off right…..CANOPENER! Steve (Devoman) has passed the reins for this rally to Ron (Chief) and Russ (Luckyducks). If you attended last year… know what to expect. If you didn’t, here is the link to a video of Canopener 2011:

There will be a link posted for a signup page. We encourage each of you to RSVP, as that is the source used for planning purposes and being listed on the site map. BTW, you are encouraged to make reservations soonest, as the 100 loop is a favorite of snowbirds. The way to be co-located within everyone, and be listed on the site map, is to make that reservation in the 100 loop NOW. This is a case of “you snooze, you lose.”

Link to Florida State Park Website

Link to Individual Topsail Campsite Photos

And now, the statement forced upon us by our current society…..the legal disclaimer:

Your attendance at this rally is with the understanding that it is not sponsored by any person or organization. No monies are being collected for any events, and the responsibility for all expenses is borne by individual attendees. Likewise, all liability for any accidents, personal injuries, or damages (either at the rally site or while traveling to/from) is strictly the responsibility of individual attendees. In other words, this event is the same as if you were traveling/camping on your own, and happened to arrive at a campground where many other Airstreams were staying. Organizers/hosts are only acting in the capacity of “information providers” and “facilitators,” and will be held harmless from any damage claims resulting from your attendance.

Dream like you're going to live forever, live like you're going to die tomorrow, and dance like nobody is watching!

The first time I have seen a liability statement. I plan on "borrowing" your statement for any rallies I help with. Thanks.

It's time to sign up for the Canopener Rally! For those of you who have attended this rally before, you know how much fun we have. For those of you who haven't attended a Canopener yet, take a look at the video and pics of the campground. Topsail Hill State Park is among the nicest of all Florida State Parks. Each site is landscaped, level, and has all hookups. The beach is just a short distance away with clear water and sugar white sand.

The Canopener Rally is also an opportunity to see plenty of Airstreams - all ages, all lengths, restored/unrestored, trailers/mohos, etc.

The best part of the Canopener Rally might be seeing old friends and making new friends ... all who have a common interest ... Airstreams!

Looking forward to another great rally. Last year was a blast.

The Canopener 2012 map is already being populated: Canopener Site Map - Photo Gallery

I would like to reiterate something from the announcement page "you snooze, you lose." Since the announcement of Canopener 2012 there have been several sites reserved, but not identified as Airstreamers. If you have reserved 118, 121, 127, 135, 136, 137, 138, or 153.....please RSVP so we can get you on the site map. Come on.....don't be shy!

Dream like you're going to live forever, live like you're going to die tomorrow, and dance like nobody is watching!

The 2011 can opener thread has been closed so there is no confusion as to where to post.I just forgot to close it last year like all the rest.
Chief and lucky ducks will be running the can opener.being that my little girl is growing up.(faster than I can blink it seems.)cheerleading and gymnastic is making it a busy one for me with her so it will hard to do anything anymore.I had a blast doing it and happy that it turned out the way it will be just as fun if not more fun than the last as always.see you all at the rally and safe travels.
It just cant get any better than that.
