GCPBA RiverNews 1/31/2019 - February Lottery For 2020 Noncommercial River Trip Permits Delayed
This is from Steve Sullivan, manager of the Grand Canyon River Permits Office:
We are delaying the Main Lottery for Noncommercial River Trip Launches by a couple weeks. We anticipate opening the 2020 Main Lottery on 2-16-2019 and closing it on at noon on 3-12-2019.
As you know, our Main Lotteries usually open each year on February 1 and remains open for about 3 weeks. This year’s delay is needed to allow permit office staff some time first to respond to the large number of emails and many of the backcountry permit requests received while the office and much of the government was shutdown. Of course, any additional shutdown could further delay the lottery.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
