    Both Kurt, myself, and some others teach workshops on all topics related to grants. Links are much earlier in the thread so here's two that I know are still around, some others have gone by the wayside so I want to verify before posting:

    SO, can you offer me some specifics on the seminar and tell me when you are going to be close to the Pittsburgh area in the future.

    Thank you,

    As Brian pointed out below we both have schedules of when and where we will be. I will be at Westwood VFC near Johnstown, PA on Feb 19-20. Contact information for me is on my profile page.

    No way shape or form. My wife said if I leave for Xmas to go anywhere I might as well stay for good so if Old Man Winter comes calling and leaves you a white Christmas, I had nothing to do with it but, Merry Xmas anyway!

    We've got a lot of folks having their meetings this week to get approval but always room for more. Glad to see the LT wasn't at FLW during the fun on New Year's. Their HHC was next to our PX, had to go in once for paperwork but obviously couldn't go wandering around on a social call, had a shadow with a funny hat...

    I am banishing the snow Gods from the Syracuse NY area as of Friday so I can get in for the Cortland class this weekend. Usually worried about Philly, DC etc., this time it is worrying about Charlotte connection. Keep fingers crossed if I can make it out of Charlotte with the backup they have had there this past few days then should be smooth sailing into the NY northlands.

    Kurt, please have the pilot fly well over the Atlantic, as we have had around 2 foot of snow since Christmas, and I can just now see the blacktop in front of the bay doors, and more on the way at the beginning of next week. Please.......

    Yeah, you guys are just enough south of me to hit the sweet spot for these systems that have just been brushing us. If Chris Bailey at WSAZ is to be believed--and he's been acing this winter so far--we have two big ones ahead next week that could wallop both me and you...and BSFD9302...and more...

    Well true to form, it was snowing here in Cortland, NY when I arrived and kept snowing the entire time I was here. Hopefully it does not effect me getting out tomorrow. Back to sunny land again and then turn right around and back to Barnstead, NH on the 27th.

    I knew Cortland was coming up. Sorry I missed you this year Kurt time just would not permit. I do not know when my Ocala trip is going to be but as far as I know I am still coming.

    Hey WJ Vaughn,

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, we need some more people to come to the class in Martin.
    We have a few committed but the West TN Fire Chiefs meeting is not until the end of January and I hope to present it to them that night.
