    Default AFG 2009 revisited...

    Well, I am stunned......

    We applied for a Live Burn Trailer on the 2009 AFG and got turned down....said we had a good application but listed about three things I didn't do so well in explaining (which was BS but oh well, good try, better luck next time). This was however long ago the massive amounts of DJs went out all on the same day.

    Well we just received (and sent back) the ten magic questions for this trailer. So yeah, I'm doing a little bragging but I am also giving everyone else a heads-up...check your accounts in case you are lucking up too!

    I'll bet that was a real suprise...one of those ones where you're reading the e-mail in disbelief, so you read it again and then have someone else read it....Congrats

    Is there now an 1199 also?

    Yes exactly like that Chief. My mind kept saying "this is a joke you got the turn down notice." But my Chief just spoke to the DHS person. So if it's a joke, they are going way out of their way to pull it off!

    Yes, we do have an 1199 update notice. But I don't know which came first because I stopped checking it months ago....my Chief just called to tell me he had a "questionaire" from the AFG....he didn't know what it was!

    We have not updated the 1199 (since I just discovered it--although we are in the process of doing it right now)....but we have returned the 10 questions.

    Although I broke a personal rule on celebrating before we actually get the award letter, because I am a tad bit superstitous, I will be glad to send you the narrative, but will do so AFTER we get that official notice! I hope you understand!
