Advice on events permiting with the Forest Service?

Has anyone out there submitted permits for commercial whitewater race events with the Forest Service? If so, what's the timeline we should expect? We are interested in adding a class 5 downriver race component to Animas River Days (June 10-12 this year) here in Durango and have recieved some intial feedback from the Forest Service that there would be no way to permit any event, even if a proposal were submitted now, for an event in mid June 2011. The obvious jewels for a race location seem to be either Vallecito, South Mineral, or Upper Animas. As for Vallecito, the FS here has absolutely no interest in ever issuing a permit "for that stretch of river" because of public safety laws? South Mineral and Upper Animas have been done before. Any relevant information out there (old proposals, etc)?

After submitting a fairly thorough proposal, we've have essentially been shot down for 2011. Is that congruous with the timelines other people have experienced?

We would like to continue to chip away at this process, even if for 2012. Anyone willing to be a resource if we need some help?
