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.

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)!:clap:

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.

Count us in for year number 4

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

AirHeadsRus 01-31-2016 10:01 AM

Four of us have booked and posted our site. What is the deal Panama Red? No map update!
Hard to get good help these days..... Just saying.
The silly season is fixin to get going full blast. We had to change sites. Somebody booked 112 already. Snooze you loose.

Since I'm planning to arrive Tuesday, January 3rd, I have to wait until February 3rd to make my reservation.

When I was working for a living, holidays were the best time to go camping because of having a day off from work without having to take leave. Now that I'm retired, I make it a point to avoid camping on holiday weekends instead.

I figure the 3rd is a good arrival date because SOB owners that were at Topsail for the New Year's holiday weekend will have left already, so there should be a wider array of sites available.

Most of the loop 103 sites are available - it appears the New Years crowd hasn't booked yet

I knooooow what you mean. I was just posting what I was told to post.

Looks like we may bump a few of the SOB's out of their sites for New Years. Airstreamers might put a damper on their party. If enough silver is around, we could book the clubhouse before they do and really send them over the edge.:brows:

tvketchum 01-31-2016 04:20 PM

Okay, Vicki and I will arrive 12/30/16 to that beautiful lakefront site 127. Can't let you guys have a party without us....
