Florida 55's recommendations are spot on. I'll add that if you visit or pass through Mobile, be sure to check out Gulfquest which just opened. It is the maritime museum for the Gulf of Mexico and is located in the river downtown.
As far as additional campgrounds (he covered many of my favorites), I like Turkey Lake in Orlando (city park). Almost all of the state parks are great. A hidden gem that may have availability is Stephen Foster state park near White Springs.

Does anyone really know anything...............

BUT, to answer the $64K question: Nope, don't know. It is up to the 2017 Can Opener rally coordinator. Typically it tends to be the second weekend in January, but what do I know, we've only been to 8 of the 10 Can Openers
Something else to consider in your rally planning, many of the CanOpenians tend to come early or stay late to the Can Opener rally. I look forward to seeing you Jim at the Can Opener, 10th Anniversary Edition !!

2016 Can Opener Schedule!

Hello to all you CanOpenians out there! We are T-minus 2 months and counting to 2016 Can Opener Week - woohoo - I can feel the excitement building, or perhaps it's my blood pressure rising wanting to get everything done That being said, A BIG thank you to NilesRob(Karen) and Panama Red for handling the name tags and rally maps this year! And for all of those who want to help with Can Opener 2016 with set ups, clean ups and take downs, please PM myself or Joe. Those of you who have helped in the past, you know who you are, I'll be in contact and hunting you down shortly

So here goes with the Officially unofficial rally schedule of the Can Opener 2016 [disclaimer: always remember, the Can Opener rally schedule is like the pirate code........ it's more like a "guideline", arrggghh]

Thursday, January 7th:
*Chili Night at the club house and the amphitheater - sign ups to follow.
*Music Under the Stars - provided and funded by the fabulous Friends Of The Park at Topsail.

Friday, January 8th:
*Annual Corn Hole Tournament located ON Wild Oak Lane in the C loop (100's), beginning approximatley at Noon (arrrggh, remember the code)
*New this year - Open Mic Friday Night at the Amphitheater. For all of you attending that has the gift of music (that would NOT be me!) this is your time to entertain your fellow CanOpenians! - sign ups to follow.

Saturday, January 9th:
*Breakfast with the Ranger - you must sign up directly with the park for this event and seating is limited. This event is sponsored by The Friends Of The Park. (We love them)
*Saturday afternoon it's the All Aluminum All The Time Parade Of Air Streams Open Trailer Event. If you love to show off your fabulous Air Stream (Hellerrrr, of course you do, we're talking Air Streamers here!), then this is your time to shine - or polish! In every welcome packet there will be a sign (here's your sign..) that you will use and put out on your site or trailer IF you choose to open your trailer for all to view. Consider this event a traveling party around the park!
*Saturday Eve Potluck Extravaganza at the club house AND at the Amphitheater. Sign ups to follow.
*Saturday Night Live Entertainment - details to follow.
(Wow, Saturday is a busy day!)

Sunday, January 10th:
*Pajama Party Potluck Breakfast at the club house AND the Amphitheater. Sign ups to follow.

*Parade wave good-byes to all the happy Canopenian campers that will be leaving us on Sunday.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh h.....

Hope y'all had as fun of a Halloween as I did! Actually had one kid trip and fall trying to get away from our incredibly scary house... We had flying Dementors, Zombies, Demonic Candy Lady, and a dude in a hockey mask that was just the final straw for quite a few trick or treaters. Surprisingly, this was our first year that no moms complained about how bad we were scaring their darling babies... Hey, for the top shelf candy we hand out, you have to brave the gauntlet. Now, it's on to CanOpener business...

After sobering up from the previous testing of The Official CanOpener Select Draft... we had to make up a new batch. Testing begins Friday. Will report back here with the results... Stuff's evaporating or something...

I've taken the liberty of re-assigning camping partners, and, seeing as how I don't know the majority of you, this should be interesting for all involved. Just check the map to see who your new camping partner will be...

If you see something incorrect on the maps, go and check your RSVP first, and if you have all of your info in the RSVP correct, don't hesitate to message me.


Link to the current Loop 103 Map:



Canopener 2016 - Loop 103



Link to the current Outside Loop 103 Map:



Canopener 2016 - Outside Loop 103



Link to the Rally Registration (RSVP) Page:



Canopener 2016 Link to RSVP



Things seem to REALLY be getting out of hand around the 112 camp site... Flamingos and goats running rampant. It's total chaos over there...


-Red, back from the dead...

Thanks Annette for the schedule update! So excited!

We (Hubs, the kid and I) will help any way we can so just point us at it. Not promising quality but brute force we can definitely provide. Throw a few beers at him and hubs could probably move the world.

Melissa - wondering if the attack goats could be drafted for beer hauling

Looking at the 103 map - Annette is going to need that brute force.

Annette the rampant flamingos have flipped your trailer!

Thanks, Annette. We're excited about being bonafide Airstreamers once again and hopefully looking forward to being a fellow CanOpenian! Looking forward to seeing you and Joe and everyone else!
