Dear Pharm420Geek, does this mean you won't be bringing brownies to the potluck?

At a Rally it doesn't matter much to me what the weather is like. It's like a bonus if it's nice.

A couple years ago, for the CanOpener, it got down to 14 degrees overnight Friday, and 18 on Saturday night. We went further south (Sarasota) for Sunday evening, and it only got down to 24 overnight. Ironically, it was the first time since 2006 (when we moved to Georgia from Illinois) that we had to break out our winter coats.

I do not know what Thanksgiving weather is like though.

And PotLuck is in reference to the cooking container: as Alan said, we're not in Washington or Colorado.

I'm seeing a brownie cookoff, similar to a chili cookoff, on Canopener's schedule of events. Tables of brownies and ice cream as far as the eye can see...

Sure, until you watch me decimate a table of brownies and ice cream... It can get rather ugly.

So in addition to the Cornhole tournament, maybe we should have a brownie eating completion.

If we could combine the two, and make them Bourbon Glazed Brownies... The Bourbon Glazed Brownie Cobbler Eating Cornhole Tournament Contest (and we're talking NORMAL brownies here, PharmGeek). I'm in!!!

-Red, taking Protagonist's ideas to the next level...

FYI, our names are Jim and Debbie -- our dogs are Trey and Fiona. Noted on the most recent map that you have our dog's names as the Airstreamers (not that they aren't also). Just didn't want to show up and get two name badges with our dog's names on them!

Proposed agenda and miscellaneous information

Proposed agenda as of 10/20/14:

Canopenians:

Here is an update on our progress towards Canopener 2015. By the number of RSVP’s so far, we are on track for a record attendance.

For those of you who will be attending for the first time, welcome! And we think you will thoroughly enjoy yourselves and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. Robin and I rate it as one of the finest we have ever encountered…..and hope you will too.

I have included the full name of the park to draw your attention to the “preserve” aspect of Topsail. The park has not only a “class A” RV park, but one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see anywhere and several miles of paved trails for walking, jogging or cycling. There are also several connecting unpaved trails for your enjoyment. I want to encourage you to not only enjoy the Canopener festivities but avail yourselves to the beauty of the park.

Note we have planned three pot luck events for which we will be posting a sign-up on this thread so we don't end up with all desserts…….tell me again why that would be a bad thing?

We are still working on the agenda for the rally but here is what we have planned so far. Bear in mind this is not the final agenda, but it should be pretty close:

Thursday, January 8:

Chili and dessert pot luck (4:30PM): For the past couple of years we have had this event on Thursday evening which is a good opportunity for early arrivals to get together and have some fun and good food. Location will be the clubhouse.

Americana Under the Stars (6PM): As last year, Topsail is hosting an event called “Americana Under the Stars” Thursday evening from 6:00pm until 8:00pm and the entertainer will be Brian Smalley. This event is open to the public and we arranged the pot luck for late afternoon so we can attend and not interfere with the event. It will be at either the clubhouse or the amphitheater (TBA).

Friday, January 9:

Hike with the Ranger (9AM): This was a lot of fun last year and is a great morning light hike to some of the interesting parts of the preserve. The ranger explains the flora and fauna and points out some of the beauty of the park. Great for adults and kids alike. Additional details TBA.

Cynthia Thoede Memorial Cornhole Tournament (noon): Stan and Lynn Lemons (Forum name StanandLynn), site 156, will again host the cornhole tournament on Wild Oak Lane. The single elimination tournament kicks off at noon.

This year we are dedicating the tournament to Cynthia Thoede, a long-standing member of our Canopener family who passed away suddenly in September. She and her husband Jeff (Forum name Rivetng) were both known as fierce competitors and a force to be reckoned with once the old bag of corn started flying. The entry fee this year will be $5/competitor (or whatever amount over $5 you wish to contribute). All proceeds will be donated to the Gadsden Street United Methodist Church Children and Youth Programs, Pensacola, FL in memory of Cynthia’s dedication to the church and youth. Jeff will be attending and you will still have to fight him on the playing field!

Saturday, January 10

Breakfast with the Ranger (9AM): We are hoping to have this event again at the clubhouse. In the past few years, the breakfast was prepared by the Friends of the Park or Camp Hosts at a cost of about $5/head, proceeds to the Friends of the Park for park improvements. The ranger gave a history of the park, flora and fauna and other interesting information. Great event for adults and kids alike. This event is open to the entire park and is first come, first served, seating limited to about 80 people.

Trailer Open House (Noon): In your welcome packet you will receive an “Open House” sign which you can post on your site indicating your Airstream is available for viewing during open house so you can show off the decorating ideas you have incorporated into your Airstream. Attendees will be walking around getting to know one another and having a great time. Rick Foley and Ron Lester of Foley RV (our Airstream dealer in Gulfport, MS) will have a new Airstream on display on site 166.

Pot Luck dinner (5PM): on Wild Oak Lane. This is a don’t miss opportunity to enjoy some of the finest food on the coast prepared by our attendees and is the main event of the rally. We will have live music (Davis and Sax) after dinner provided courtesy of Foley RV. We will also be giving away door prizes provided by Foley RV, Airstream, Inc., and others TBA.

Sunday, January 11:

Potluck breakfast (9AM): served in the clubhouse. This will be our final event for the rally.

Stay tuned for additional information and details as we get closer to the event date.

Final note: Canopener is a family-friendly event and we expect to have some young folks attending with their parents. There has been some friendly banter on the thread about pot brownies and such. I know I shouldn't need to say this…..but just in case….all attendees should be aware alcoholic beverages are prohibited in public areas in all Florida state parks (discretion is the key) and marijuana is considered an illegal controlled substance. ’Nuff said.
