Can you have a "holiday" at Alcatraz?

Way back in 2005 and then again in 2007, the National Park Service (which manages Alcatraz), negotiated with a photography club to permit a small group of photographers, around 15, to have total access to the island for 3 days and 2 nights. Which was never offered before, or again.

IIRC, the organizer had to take out a special insurance policy indemnifying the government, as the normal off-limits areas were dangerous due to steep cliffs overlooking the bay and deteriorating building/structures.

I lucked out both times, as those 15 slots filled almost instantly.
