Grand Canyon opens Two Lotteries on 10-09-08 RRS announced only

Hi All, the folks at Grand Canyon National Park opened up some cancelation lottery dates yesterday. Instead of sending out an e-mail alert as was the case in all earlier lotteries, this announcement went out by RSS feed ONLY.
Here's the beta:


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

The Main Lottery is held only once a year, in February, to assign launch dates for river trips occurring the following year.

Lottery statistics can be found on the Helpful Links for http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/noncommercial-riv-docs.htm

Noncommercial River Trips page.
