We have not been able to secure an actual date for the event with the National Park Service. As it has always been our primary goal to put on a high quality event we are choosing not to continue the process this year as we are running short on time to prepare. Grand Canyon National Park is a very special place which receives a lot of pressure from various groups to hold special events and the Grand Canyon Recreation Center only wants to support quality events that create a meaningful and positive association between our events and the Park. We apologize for not being able to provide this great event for 2009 and we look forward to trying again for 2010.
