Went by as fast as Panama Red and Mrs. Panama Red did on that awesome Canopener buggy!

This has been so much fun! When is the next Canopener? Thanks to all of you who worked so hard to make this event happen. Now that we have gotten our feet wet we will know how to pitch in next year. Already counting the days...well, maybe months right now.

We realized two things. First, is that we stink at corn hole and second is that we got to meet a great group of fun loving guys and gals. When you are having fun time flys, no matter weather.

Great to meet you both and LOVED whooping you at corn hole. We'll have a rematch next year. Can't wait to see the upgrades to the cancycle and you new do-rag collection.

We had a blast at Canopener this year. Tom and Robin and all the other volunteers did a great job putting together this event. Many thanks to the vendors for providing the door prizes. I think just about everyone who was present won something.

Lots of great people, many new friends as well as some interesting Airstreams. The food was great, especially the potluck on Thursday. Only one real bad day of weather and that didn't stop too many people!

The staff at Topsail were top notch and the park was a true pleasure to visit. If you haven't been there, add it to your bucket list, but plan to make reservations early. It is a very popular destination.

Our original post said this was a fact finding mission. The fact is we meet a lot of very friendly people and had a great time. Saturday was a blur, to much to see and such a short time to see it in. Karen and I hope to see many of you at other events this year !! We are planning on attending Spingstream in April 2015. I am open to any other suggestions also. I'm retired but my wife has one more year, so keep that into consideration. This year has to be short and sweet, I have a liberal leave policy but my wife does not.

The nine of us had a blast at Canopener 2015. We are on the road home. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the rally a success. Thanks to everyone who let us visit your trailer or came to see our custom bunkhouse!

We are still here, leaving tomorrow. Went to Seaside tomight and had a great cuban sandwich at "The Meltdown on 30A", one of the Airstream food trailers. Met a lot of great folks and had a great time! Thanks to Tom and Robin and all the volunteers and the park staff too! See you next year.

It was fun meeting you and your family! The tour of your trailer was also a real treat. Dishwasher? Central Vac?

Canopener 2015

I don't know about the rest of you, but this weekend went by so fast. There were many folks I really wanted to visit with and get to know better but our "host" duties limited us this year. Next year I plan to catch up with more of you.

Thought you might be interested in some official numbers we finalized today:

1. Total Airstreams attending: 103

2. Total amount raised during Cynthia Theode Cornhole Tournament: $335 (donated to Gadsten Street United Methodist Church in her memory).

3. Total amount raised during Margarita and Bloody Mary events: $280 (donated to the Friends of Topsail Park)

Well done, Canopenians!

Mrs Red and I decided that we REALLY screwed up by coming to Canopener. It was our first ever rally, and I'm pretty sure we ruined ourselves for any other rally we will attend... We'll be all like, "Well, sure it's a cool rally, but it's not Canopener!"

We had the BEST TIME EVER at Canopener. If they'd let me reserve my spot right now for next year, I would. You are the greatest group of people I've met in a long time... Lisa, Tom, Frank, Joy and Jared, Joshua, Tim and Jim, Brenda and Tami (Tami wouldn't give me a burger for some reason...), Wayne and Julie, Annette, Levon (great rye bro), Greg, Russ, Blanche (who I want a rematch with next year in the Cornhole tournament), TJ, Henry, Melissa and Brian, Bill and Shelley, Pete and Beth, Jose, Alex and his crew.... Ok, I realized I just screwed up, because I'll be here typing names all night. Man, so many awesome people. Hope I get to see y'all more often than once a year. Y'all come by the house one weekend. It'll be a blast! Plan on boondocking...

-Red, overwhelmed...

Now go out and attend a small rally somewhere. That way, you don't have to compare it to Canopener because you'll have a completely new set of expectations.

Canopener 2015 was my first big rally, but not my first-ever rally. I've been to various WBCCI rallies before, and the informal "Two Weeks From Everywhere" AirForums rallies at various parks in Louisiana. They're all unique, and I have no reason to even try comparing one rally to another. They may be different varieties of fun, but they're all fun.

And if that doesn't work, host your own rally somewhere! Organizing an informal rally can be as simple as announcing on the AirForums "I'm going to be camping at XXXXX Park the weekend of MMM-DD-YYYY. There's still NN spaces that haven't been reserved. Y'all come and join me!" That is exactly how the "Two Weeks from Everywhere" rally got started.
