The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Wappapello Lake announces two upcoming events. First, the annual duck blind drawing and registration will be held August 15, 2015, at 1 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of the Bill Emerson Memorial Visitors Center. Anyone wishing to place a floating blind on the lake needs to be signed up prior to 1 p.m. If you are not signed up by this time, you will be required to wait until the drawing and placement process has concluded. Upon conclusion of the placement process, late arrivers will be allowed to register and choose a location for their blind. Blinds will be provided by the applicant and must meet the “Minimum Standards for Floating Duck Blinds”. The registration fee for a duck blind is $15 and applicants must bring cash in the exact amount or a personal check or money order made payable to “FAO, USACE, St. Louis District”.
