This just out from the Permits folks at Grand canyon National Park:

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

Dear Thomas Martin,

Two lotteries have just been opened. One is a 2008 follow-up lottery with ten launches for this November and December. The other is a 2009 follow-up lottery for ten launches for this January. These lotteries will accept applications through 12:00 noon MST on October 7th and be run shortly thereafter.

Winners will be required to pay their $400 trip deposits by noon on 10/09/2008. If you apply, please log back into the system on October 8th to check the status of your request.

You can find a listing of available launch dates at http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/cancelled-dates.htm.

If you are interested in obtaining a launch but would rather not receive email announcements about winter launch dates, please update the email preferences you listed in your profile. To do this, just login and click on Edit Contact Information. If you need any assistance, please ask. We are happy to help.

Sincerely,
Steve Sullivan
