We sure hope you can make it in 2017. The Canopener was our first rally ever also. We made so many friends then in 2010 and continue to make more every year we attend. Awesome bunch of "Newbies" this year! We'll put you to work soon!

The 2017 Canopener thread will be up soon but the dates will be January 6, 7, and 8. Put it on your calendar and watch this thread until the 2017 Canopener thread gets open.

Our thanks to you

Joe and I have officially unwound and arrived home today. During our drive we had the opportunity to look back on CanOpener 2016 and WOW what a blast
It was a pleasure and a privilege to help put the rally together this year and..........yes, we look forward to doing it all again for 2017
But before we move on to CanOpener 2017 we both want to say a HUGE thank you to many who helped make this 2016 rally so fabulous:

thank you Karen(karenjude) & Brad(nilesrob) for being the "bag people" and putting together all the name tags and gift bags - along with all the stuffers who helped on the Wednesday before the rally.
thank you Panama Red (Kevin, and especially Shelley for putting up with him) for doing and re-doing and re-doing and re..... the maps, and to Russ(luckyducks) for making all the copies.
thank you Vernon & Sarah (hihoagrv) for being willing(?) participants in a way too early live TV interview and sharing your amazing vintage Airstream for all to see.
thank you Greg & Pat (roadtoaster) and all your helpers for another spectacular Margaritaville - it wouldn't be CanOpener with out this event!
thank you Jose (rumrunner) and all your "official" corn hole judges for putting together a great tournament - the most players ever this year And a big woohoo to all who brought the boards and bags!
thank you Mark (labigdogs) for the spectacular photos and way-super-cool drone video, a first for the CanOpener!
thank you to all (you know who you are) who helped before, during and after the big Chili Feed - y'all are awesome and so appreciated!
thank you to Keith (khollister) for being chief juicer, blender and bartender for Bloody Saturday.
thank you Ron & family (pizzachop) for some seriously delicious pizzas Saturday night.
thank you JT (stratman) for ALL the music and too much fun entertainment - there were some pretty amazing dance moves and singing Saturday night
thank you Jeff (rivetng) for the always fun (and potentially dangerous) party cart and Sunday morning mimosas.
thank you Tom & Vicki (tvketchum) for being the hosts with the most for our Pajama Party Coffee Bar. I'd say that was a winner winner chicken dinner event and a must have for 2017!
thank you Chuck (florida55) for producing videos, logos and all other media items and providing priceless memories.
thank you to all the past rally planners; Steve(devoman), Ron (chief), Russ (luckyducks) and Tom (alumitater) - y'all have made CanOpener what it is today and all of us thank you
and a BIG, HUGE HEARTFELT THANK YOU to Rick & JJ Foley and Ron & Renee Lester from our dear friends at FOLEY RV
See you in 2017 - Joe & Annette

We went to Foley, AL for a few days following the Canopener. Just now had time to go through all the pages of responses from the various attendees. We also had a great time and so nice to meet so many new Airstream friends and visit with old ones. Our thanks to Joe and Annette as well as all of the helpers. Annette's post 959 sums it up better than I can express. The drone video and TV news video of the donation to Dave Brooks were fun to see. I will be looking forward to Chuck's magic with a Canopener 2016 video. We are so fortunate to have the support of Foley RV. We will be back in 2017.

CanOpener Trivia

In case you didn't know the origin of the CanOpener Logo (on AirForums, on the back of the t-shirts, on the cups, and on the television news) it was created by Ron Eubanks (Chief) many years ago when he hosted the CanOpener. It's a great logo and a testament to his graphic artist abilities. Thanks Ron.

This was mine and Bobby's first Canopener, The fun we had is so much more than you could have ask for. The wonderful People we meet are outstanding. I don't believe this could have been any better. Thank you to all who helped bring this together. You really made it a great event. We look forward to coming back in 2017.
Annette and Joe, Thank you for all your hard work and all the others that helped out to make this event. Please have a safe trip where ever You and Your Airstream may take you. Thanks Bobby & Michelle.
