At least it wasn't a month of waiting to get the results... Rejected as well, but figured as much as I only had one point.

Come on Yampa!

You can get Grand permits and middle fork permits by just calling in. You might not go when you want to go but at least you'll be able to get on the river. Talking with the ranger at the grand put-in, she said that 8 or 9 permits were not used this winter.

I guess it depends on what dates you requested. We looked at the PDF files that showed the numbers of permit requests for each date. I know of three people who got dates within a week of each other in March! If you are lucky enough to know one of them maybe you'll get an invite. I got my invite already! Third time down the Grand, I love the new lottery system!
