Hello!

Newbie here, just posted in the Member Introduction section. My husband and I don't own an Airstream yet, but can we attend this rally?

I saw that we could rent a cabin at the campground. We would love to start meeting people and learn what the AS life is all about.

Thanks!
Joanne

Joanne:

You are certainly welcome to come and participate. There are cabins at the park, you can check for availability on Reserve America or call the park directly.

As wife Robin and I were preparing to purchase our Airstream a few years ago, we were invited to visit Canopener during the Open House Saturday. We met so many great folks and learned so much about Airstreams. Great way to get into the Airstream community.

I would ask that if you decide to attend, you sign up on our RSVP page.
Dont hesitate to PM me should you have additional questions.

Joanne,
We all *love* to talk Airstream. Please make it a point to visit us in #144. We went through the "looking-and-dreaming" phase just three years ago. This will be our 4th Canopener.

Merry Christmas to All

While charging north to spend Christmas with my folks in the Mountains, I am certain that I passed a few Canopians getting an early start south. My hope is that everyone will enjoy the holidays and arrive safely at Topsail. Thursday night is chili night, and of course pot luck is Saturday, but Friday is usually open for doing your own thing. For any and all interested in seeing the video of Cynthia's memorial service, I will have the big screen and projector set up behind my site 126. A couple of years ago some of you may remember watching a Saints game there, and we had a lot of room. Weather permitting I will have everything set up for 8:00pm. For those of you who knew Cynthia (or thought you knew her) you will enjoy this celebration of her life. There will be a fire pit and an open bar, just bring your folding chair and a warm heart.

If weather has other ideas, I will see if we can use the club house.
Merry Christmas to all, and safe New Year travels. See you soon.

Jeff

Please know that you will be most welcome. The Airstream community is, IMHO, one of the finest groups you will ever encounter. This is a voice of experience, as we have been members of some rather large organizations, e.g. Mercedes Benz Club of America, Harley Owners Group, Gold Wing Riders Association, etc. In addition, we have owned two "new" Airstreams, and attended most Canopeners (hosts for two years). Airstream owners love to "show and tell". Attending the Canopener is a great opportunity to learn a lot in a couple of days. Do not feel the least bit intimidated about attending the rally sans Airstream. We no longer own an Airstream, but we will be right there in cabin #1006 because the friendships we made via the Airstream community are life-long. I will volunteer to introduce you to some folks, but I think after the first couple you will feel so welcome that you won't need further introductions.

Ron

Thank you for all the replies. We made a Thurs-Sat night reservation for cabin 1008. I'll post to the RSVP thread now and figure out the pot-luck thing after Christmas. We can't wait to meet everybody!

That should work but try signing onto the main site again. And welcome to the world of Airstreams.
