However, I have the #6 draw for Kern NWR on October 12, the upcoming Saturday, but I have no idea if they will be open. I have no intention to hijack this thread, yet if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated. No spots are desired at all, simply the status of the refuge, whether it is open or not. If it is open I likely have room on my reservation, PM me if interested.
Kern will be closed as long as the Government is still shut down. The Government would need to open today, for Kern to be open on Saturday. The word I've heard is that the refuges would need 1 day to be operational once the Government opens back up. That's just what I've heard from guys who have talked with the refuge managers.
In addition, this morning's headlines that Boehner wants to do a temporary debt increase to last another 6 weeks isn't boding well for the Government to re-open. This COULD extend the shut-down for another 6 weeks to November 22. Click here for Yahoo "news" story.
If at first you don't succeed, maybe skydiving isn't for you.
