We will open the lottery 11/30/23 at 11am central and close the lottery at 12/06/23 at 11am central.  This is not a first come, first serve signup.  If we have more entries of those that want to attend than available spots, we will pull entry numbers randomly. If your number isn’t chosen on the first round, we will automatically place you on the wait list.  We regularly pull folkx from the wait list and will notify you if your number is pulled.  

We will notify everyone of their status in the lottery pull by Monday December 11th.
