For the serious answer, Florida State Park rules state:

"Alcoholic beverage consumption is allowed in designated areas only."

Over the years, we have been very liberal in designating those areas.

We don't drink. Will that be a problem?
So far only 3 spots reserved on loop 101. I was hoping loop 101 would fill up with silver trailers as well. That would be awesome.

That's not a problem at all. I find that I talk more about drinking, than the actual time that I have too drink... Days are to short...

Canopener is not college spring break so non drinkers will not feel uncomfortable or out of place. Many attendees do not drink. An Airstream rally is a social experience where people mingle, talk and participate in group activities as well as enjoy the scenic and tourist attractions of the local area. People keep coming back year after year because they enjoy the fellowship of Airstreamers with similar interests.

Having attended two Canopeners I'd say those who do drink do so very responsibly. I've never seen anyone behave inappropriately due to excessive alcohol consumption. I have seen many drinkers and non drinkers have a great time.

With respect to group activities you can participate as much or little as you desire. Some people organize smaller group hikes and outings once they get to Canopener. If you are new, definitely attend the meals, particularly the pot luck dinner and breakfast. During the day you'll see small and large groups of people congregating around the campground. Walk up and join in the conversation. Bring lightweight chairs you can carry to events or over to a neighboring Airstream.

One other piece of advice. Don't complain if an event isn't perfect. This is an informal rally organized by the people attending the event, not professionals. No one is paid and there is no rally fee. If something isn't right, jump in and help fix it.

A final word for newbies. Come prepared to meet some wonderful people and make some new lasting friendships.

Couldn't have said it better

Chuck is absolutely spot on! This will be our 4th Canopener. My wife and I are still gainfully employed, so we only get to meet up with some of these folks once or twice a year. In those weekend get togethers we have fostered some relationships around the campfire that are more dear to us than a lot of our blood relations.

We agree wholeheartedly with Chuck and Jeff both.

Some of us drink excessively after attending the Can Opener. We can't handle the year long wait between them.
