This is a once in-lifetime opportunity to be in the backcountry. We need to give a commitment now in October 2009, if we want to go as our own contingent in 2011. Once we request for a contingent it will be placed in a lottery, which will decide if we will be able to go sometime in Summer of 2011. So sign up now!!!
