Contact the Lincoln National Forest in charge of non-commercial permits. The Ranger for 2018 was:

It has taken a persistent effort to get this permit approved even though we have consistently done this for 25 years or more. Suggest contacting the Ranger station by March or April to begin. Usually they will email a PDF document to be filled out. Previous years can be used as a boiler plate to fill out the current year. See the 2018 Permit sample below.

During GOC:

Have the signed permit available if needed during the GOC event.

After GOC (if applicable):

Update this write up if there is new information.
