Grand Canyon GIVES AWAY DATES on phone, and is running a mini Lottery

Hi all, the NPS has dates to GIVE AWAY on the phone, and is running a mini three day lottery.

http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/cancelled-dates.htm

Here's the beta:

Available to the first caller: Feb 2009: 2, 7, 13, 15, 16, 18

The following unclaimed launch dates are available on a first-call, first-served basis for live-callers only (no phone messages) through the River Office phone line (M-F, 8 am-noon, 800-959-9164 or 928-638-7884) to the first eligible caller who pays the nonrefundable $400 deposit. The one-trip-per-year rule and all other normal rules will apply. These dates will remain available through the River Office until claimed.

Standard Sized Trips: (allows 1 to 16 participants at a time)

Feb 2009: 2, 7, 13, 15, 16, 18


Here's the Follow-up Lottery info. THIS LOTTERY STARTED YESTERDAY AND GOES THREE DAYS!

Follow-up lotteries are held as needed throughout the year to reassign cancelled and/or left-over river launch dates.

Applications for a 2009 Follow-up Lottery will be accepted through the weighted lottery website (https://npspermits.us) from Jan/27/09 through noon (Mountain Standard Time) on Jan/30/09. The following dates will be available:

Standard Sized Trips: (allows 1 to 16 participants at a time)

Feb 2009: 23
Mar 2009: 22
Apr 2009: 17
May 2009: 2
If you win a date the deposit will be due by noon on Feb/3/09. You will then have until Feb/10/09 to complete a detailed permit application and submit remainder of fees.
giving up on lotteries for dead of winter short notice trips, it's first call-in, first serve.
