Permit fee for a phone lottery winner is due 30 days before launch. I think it's because Dino is taking me at my word that I want the permit and will keep it, so the old payment rule applies.
For the lottery winners, there was a different pay schedule. Confirm and pay by Feb 28.
My guess, and it's only my guess, is that the river office doesn't know how many lottery date winners are within the same boating groups, and so would not eventually keep both, or more, permits won. So, they wanted people to confirm and commit by paying for the permit now (by Feb 2
and have available sooner those winning dates that were not to be kept.

I went from #1 to #17, which was actually closer to 45, as they rotated requests with live, postcards and phone.
Enough of old stories. My question is for anyo0ne who actually made their phone connect with Kelly's in that split second when she hangs up from the previous call....
When do the phone lottery winners have to pay the $185 fee? While you're on the phone or is there a few days before the cancellation list will repopulate??
