Bookings for 2016
We will begin booking 2016 reservations (March 21 through November 22) on October 1, 2015 at 8:00 am EDT by phone and written request by a lottery type system. Written requests (fax, email, US mail or lottery form) for the 2016 season will be accepted from Monday, August 3, 2015 through October 1, 2015.
The written requests are printed, and held until October 1 when they will be shuffled, pulled at random and processed simultaneously with phone call so no preference is given based on the date the request is received; so luck of the draw, luck of the dial.
After October 1, 2015, the 2016 reservation forms will be answered in the order in which they are received, but not until all of the 2016 lottery requests have been processed.
The wait list for 2016 reservation cancellations will be started on December 4, 2015.
