Russ,

Thank you for all you do - I am sure most of it unseen, but not unappreciated. You are the best.

Canopener 2013 - Potluck Dinner - Saturday Evening

One of the major highlights of Canopener is the Saturday night potluck dinner where attendees try to outdo each other creating delicious gourmet dishes for the appreciative campers. This year, our group was too large for the clubhouse to accommodate so the potluck was held outdoors in one of the roads in front of campsites. The afternoon rain fortunately lifted just in time for the Canopener chefs to bring their dishes out to be sampled and savored. Plus the fire pit helped to take the chill off.

Canopener 2013 - Prizes and Entertainment

After devouring the world class smorgasbord of gastronomical delights, the Canopener campers moved to the clubhouse for the awarding of prized and the evening entertainment.

First Wes (Wes & Peggy), received the cornhole tournament trophy from Stan (StanandLynn). Then Susan (Sunnygirl) announced the winners of the open house decorating contest -- Tim & Linda (tkasten) and Don & Kate (Streamntyme). Russ (Luckyducks) followed up with the door prize drawing. A number of Airstream appropriate and themed door prizes were supplied by the Airstream corporate office and Foley RV (Airstream of Mississippi). The Canopener attendees greatly appreciated the generous donation of door prizes to the event. After door prizes were awarded Pete (Foil-warped) provided the entertainment - music for the dancers. A good time was had by all.

Thank you to all that planned this event and to the many who helped to make it a success. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated.

We pulled out early and are making our way back. Safe travels to all as we go our separate ways.

Anne (and Tim)

Have fun!!!!! Pete & Geneva aboard 'Woodja'
I know how you feel! We have spent most of our time camping "in", too! I'm just getting over bronchitis and although I'm not contagious, nobody wants to listen to my constant coughing and i don't need to be out in this weather. But, I'm still SO glad we came! Feel better, Pete and Geneva!

Thank you Russ & Linda. As always you do a fine job of putting this rally on. And to all the rest of the volunteers.
This was one humdinger of a rally. It could of been better if I was able to use my right arm. I did use it more than I should have. Next year I will make my bread pudding and whiskey sauce.
WE made new friends and was able to talk to some old freinds.
We get to stay for another week. So for the ones leaving take it easy and be safe on you rtrip home.
Jim & Regina

We have had so much fun at our first Canopener! A huge thank you to everyone who ran things, set up things, cooked things, and generally put up with the rest of us yahoos!

We've made new friends during this rally and reconnected with some we haven't seen in a while. Everyone stay safe for the drive home, we've got a start out early and have about a 500 mile haul home for school/work tomorrow.

This was a great end to our Christmas trip and we may have to make this an annual event for the Griffin family.

Until next time - See more. Do more. Live more.

Matt, Stephanie, Justin, and Meghan.
