$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


Analysis of a lottery administered for rationing recreational uses of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River indicated that a substantial minority of rejectees was still able to use the river, primarily by joining acquaintances who were successful in the lottery. Participants, including those who were rejected, rated the lottery above such alternatives as rationing on the basis of whitewater skill or knowledge, giving priority to first-time users, or requiring advance reservations.
