    Lightbulb BC79er is coming to Massachusetts

    I thought I would pass this along.

    The Easthamptom Fire Dept. will be hosting a grant seminar conducted by Brian Vickers on January 23, 2010 8am-4pm. Here's a great opportunity to learn from one of the best grant writers in the country.

    Go to www.vickersconsultingservices.com to register or get info on the class. Remember the 2010 AFG is just around the corner.

    I saw the title so I assumed that Brian was going to campaign for Coakley.

    Yeah, sure wasn't coming for support of Coakley. Results are further proof that that's something about a pickup man.

    Postponed this workshop until the 6th, logistics issues. So if anyone else wants to come on down we'll have a party.

    Of course, can't have that when I'm up there. Need to relive the -13 like MN last Feb. Not the temp for khaki slacks that's for sure...

    Default February 8th is Around the Corner

    Well the first round has come and gone. Found this post by Brian about his company's success for Round 1.

    Looked decently widespread, ours were all across the map. Will be hard to top a day like today though, hit 83 direct written awards for just short of $5.5mil and 36 workshop attendees wrote for another $3.6mil. 109 on the day ain't bad, but hopefully it isn't repeated because they get back on track with starting in July instead of a whole load 9 months after submission...
    If you ever thought of attending a seminar, here's your chance to meet one of the best.

    Brian,

    It's looking good this weekend at least weather wise......partly sunny on Saturday....maybe I will not have to drive home in a snow storm again.

    Its part of the Massachusetts charm Brian, if you don't like the weather, wait a minute, it will change.
