Crap, misread the email and thought we had until the 28th to submit. Wasn't likely gonna put in anyways but we were still debating.

Why do they end the lottery 3 days before the end of the month? Most river lotteries use the obvious end of the month deadline for the simple reason its easier to remember. (still my bad for poor readings skills this time)

Hope people have better luck than OP and me.

But, it only takes one and my very best pal in the world, Big Eddy has been awarded a March 21, 2015 launch!

That is a GREAT time to launch! We had March 18 last year. The weather is just perfect! You guys have a great time!

I also did not win, but had a couple of friends that did. They won both launches for the same day. What are the odds???
