Canopener 2017

11th Annual Canopener Rally

January 6-8, 2017

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Gregory E. Moore RV Resort

7525 W. Scenic Highway 30A

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459

(850)267-8330

You are invited to attend a fun-filled weekend in northwest Florida at beautiful Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The park's beaches have sugar white sand, the water is a wonderful emerald green and temperatures average a high of 61 degrees in early January.

This rally just keeps growing in popularity – there were approximately 130 Airstream trailers and motor homes at the 2016 Canopener Rally.

Fun and sharing a good time with like-minded fellow Airstreamers is the main agenda. The park offers hiking, beautiful beaches and trails suitable for jogging or bicycling. Many participants bring their kayaks. There are numerous outstanding restaurants in the Santa Rosa area.

Scheduled activities include a chili lunch and corn hole tournament Friday, breakfast with the ranger and Airstream trailer open house on Saturday. Pajama party breakfast on Sunday.

Although the rally is officially Friday noon through Sunday, January 6-8, 2017,you may want to arrive earlier on Thursday January 5 to make new friends, to see old ones, and to attend the FREE concert provided by our dear friends, The Friends Of Topsail Park. There have been informal events preceding the official start of the rally and these will be identified on this thread.
RSVP Airstream Forums - Canopener 2017 Forums - Canopener 2017

Reservations for campsites must be made through Reserve America. Their policy prohibits reservation more than 11 months in advance of your arrival date (see their site for exact details). In the past, loop 103 has filled first and overflowed into other sites. Now with the park almost filled with Airstreams, sites closer to the amphitheater may also fill fast.

There are no rally fees, however we did donate over $1,000 to Friends Of Topsail Park through donations by fabulous fellow Canopenians (and 100% of that money stays at the park)!

With the cold weather in Florida this week, I have enjoyed a few of those "Special Coffee's" that you showed us how to make. Thanks again for hosting the pajama party on Sunday.What a hit that was.

Glad to see the 2017 thread open; we were just saying we missed going to the 2016 thread every day to see what Annette had said or what crazy thing Panama Red had added. Great fun. Canopener 2016 was our first rally (Rose was one day old when we arrived at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park) and we had a blast. Met so many wonderful people; we feel so assured that beginning to Live Riveted is the life for us.

Well, you're booked for the campground, but not for the rally.
