    Just got the call from the congressman! Going to be awarded this week for Washer/Extractor and Dryer. Could not believe they are starting this week.

    Well Daytona is this weekend and Nationwide is Friday night and Sprint Cup is Saturday so I ws going to take off early but, I have pit passes for both days and the track is only 90 mnutes from here so should be no problem if I have to work for a few hours on Friday.

    Looks like I'll have something to do on July 4th while on shift at the station.

    "Statistics as of Round 1" under construction, coming shortly to a forum near you.

    Congrat's to those of you hearing good news.
    It's going to be a very nice July 4th for many department's out there this year

    Kurt and Brian, don't work to hard and enjoy your holiday with family and friends, I think you have earned it.

    I think I'm going to be spending my Saturday afternoon in a cardboard boat race. If all goes well I'll be around to hear an official announcement for our department. If not I'll at least give the guys some practice at boat rescue

    Anyone have the inside scoop on the first round yet? I haven't heard a single peep about anything. I have one in for communications equipment. Our department has won in the past. Again, still haven't heard anything about this one!!!

    If you have no update to your 1199A and no questions to your e-mail, don't hold your breath for any inside info for this Friday.

    Thats what I was asking you guy, your question was too vague. Can you be more specific about what information you are seeking, and I will try to answer it for you?" Inside scoop" is awfully general in nature.

    Its just the first of 35-40 weeks of nailbiting, hair pulling, carpal tunnel clicking, anxiety ridden weeks for many but... the wait is worth it eventually for most! Hang tough, keep on clicking!
