If staying at other parks

For those who have booked at other parks for the Canopener and want to register for the Canopener, please go to the RSVP page http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...y=2018-1-4&c=1 and at the bottom put your names, date of arrival, what park you are in and site number. Not sure we can do a map, but we can make a list so you are included.
We look forward to seeing everybody.

Joe & Annette

Loop 100

Reserve America just called and told me they are closing loop 100 from November to March. I had reserved site 8, but they let me move it to site 88.

They pulled this same trick last Rally. Work was postponed after complaints were made to them. I believe that loop 100 is the first section to the left as you enter. Looks like there are 21 spots effected by this closure.

I was talking to the folks at the park and they told me that only sites 1 - 24 will be effected. These are the sites in the first loop as you enter the park from the store to the showers. It looks like 8 or 9 attendees will be effected. I would call and raise hell with them to see if the could hold off on the work until the end of the rally. I cannot understand how they can take a reservation and collect the fees, then pull the carpet out from under you. Not nice!

I got a recorded phone call today telling me Topsail was closing the Loop my reservation was on; I think it was the 100 Loop. We have site 9 listed, or at least we did. I thought the park is 100% Booked, so I'm worried we're being kicked out. What???

Topsail Closing the 100 Loop, Where do those Campers go!?

For those of you who are new, or have forgotten, a site reservation with the campground does not sign you up for the rally. To sign up for the rally you need to go to the official rally RSVP site. Scroll to the bottom of the RSVP page, click the "yes" button, provide your first names, your site number, and your arrival and departure dates. The rally organizers will use this information to put you on the map and produce name tags. It will also give us a count, which now totals 80 rigs. Here's a link to the RSVP page:

Canopener 2018 Rally Registration (RSVP)

I've updated the maps with the most recent RSVP's. If you are attending the rally, and haven't signed up on the RSVP page, please do so per the directions above. If you have signed up, please review your registration on the updated maps (links appear below). Some of you haven't provided first names on your RSVP. If you haven't you can update your RSVP to add information. In addition, if your plans have changed, and you won't be attending, please go to the RSVP page to cancel your rally reservation. Cancelling with Reserve America, or the campground, doesn't tell the rally your plans changed.

Here are links to the updated maps. Please send me a PM if you see an error.

Canopener 2018 Map Sites 2-91

Canopener 2018 Map Sites 101-168
Can the organizers help with the fact that the lark now wants to close one of the loops and essentially kick-out some of the Canopener attendees?

We will do what we can. Like last year, we got no advance notice and I doubt the ranger did either. Being a weekend, not much we can do until Tallahassee opens up on Monday.
Stay tuned,
Joe

On the Canopener Facebook page several have reported calling and getting moved to another spot. Seems really dirty for them to do this again after what happened last year. Seriously might be time to start looking for a new venue for this maxed out rally.

I'm wondering how they could get moved when cancellation vacancies are snatched up in mere minutes and the campground has been fully booked for months…

Beats me, you would have to call and ask. We are not the only campers there that week. People are constantly cancelling and the closer we get to rally time more spots will open up.

Say it isn't so!

Sadly but true, the 100 loop at Topsail (sites 1 - 21) will be closed throughout the winter months for upgrading to all theses sites. I spoke with the park ranger today and they cannot and will not delay or postpone the construction. I even asked them to release the sites they hold but alas, they could not.

SO, if you have a reservation for any of these sites you will, if you haven't already, be contacted by Reserve America canceling your reservation

BUT, here are two options: 1) contact Reserve America and check availability at Grayton Beach, a short ride from Topsail, or other private RV parks in the area. 2) be diligent about checking for reservation cancellations at RA that WILL certainly occur between now and Canopener. It will be business as usual at RA, which means whoever "snatches up" the cancellation First, Wins (There is no waiting list, nor has there ever been)

I'm sincerely sorry this has occurred, and it is possible, even likely, it may occur in the future as more sites are in need of upgrading.
I'll be posting soon with requests for volunteers, schedule of events, more requests and then follow up with more requests for volunteers

Annette

#51 divanko Cancellation

Rec'd notice via email that my reservation for site #017 has been canceled because of maintenance of the Loop 100 starting Nov. '17 thru Mar.'18. The Topsail State Park is fully booked and I am receiving a full refund. Unless I luck out and snag a spot that comes open, I will not be attending this year. Thanks, divanko

The Friends of Topsail is the recipient of a lot of the Canopener fundraising. If anyone has pull to get the affected attendees relocated to a site not in the Reserve America inventory, it would be them. Every Florida Park has sites not sold through Reserve America, and Topsail has a few. I would suggest this approach rather than trying to strong arm the park into postponing work, which needs to be done.

What is annoying, they know they are closing sites for renovations, so they should plan better and restrict them from being sold in the first place.

How can I RSVP when there is no place on the page to enter text? We are staying at Grayton due to cancellation of our Topsail site.

scroll all the way to to the bottom of the RSVP page and underneath everybody else you should see where to put your info.
