Someone correct me, but I believe last year's closing date was March 15 of 2019. Seem to remember it's somewhere in February to mid march.

Yes, last year everything was postponed due to the government shutdown, so it closed in March. It normally closes mid-February-ish. Was wondering if anyone had seen any notices (even cancellation notices lol).

pt has it right. all 2021 launches are commercial. it was in the original deal that was negotiated so that the commercials could catch up on user days

Yeah...but they made an exception for me that says I'm allowed to go down as many times as I want whenever I want to maintain the private boater numbers and anyone passing by has to give me their best food and liquor since I'll be doing 40 day trips and I don't feel like stocking up for it.

When can I apply through the weighted lottery?
Each year’s main lottery will be held in February of the previous year. For instance, for the first few weeks of February 2018 applications were accepted for the 2019 Main Lottery.

This is from:

National Park Service
U.S. Department of Interior
Grand Canyon National Park
River Permits Office

last updated June 5, 2018 (from a pdf on their site)
