Just so you know... All my friends and I are applying for that June 2nd launch. So, you might as well not waste your time trying. Cuz' your chances of winning it are basically nil.

Dinosaurs rules state that you are only allowed one trip per year on either river, so you are either telling a lie or breaking the rules. Not good karma for winning the permit lottery.

Don't take the bait brah. This chatter is all tongue in cheek banter because someone posted "the douchiest MB post of all time" last week. Said person claimed to have assemble such a massive permit party that everyone else should just refrain from trying.

My original post was intended to raise awareness about GC opportunities but the buzzards latched on to the humor side. Hopefully someone was able to lock in on the GC openings while the rest of us are snapping towels in the locker room.

574! Applications for 8 open dates.... Don't worry though, if you guys don't win, just call up one of the concessions and book your trip for this year. ;)

My strategy for drawing on a prime date in special permit lotteries is to post the information on as many internet forums as possible just to ensure that everyone that might not have been aware of the lottery is now aware of it. That way if i do get the permit, I know I'm extra lucky! Same goes for cancellation permits, etc. :)

I thought the spirit of Mountain Buzz was to share river beta, experiences and other info that might help folks get on the water not hoard it. Perhaps I am mistaken
