    I know there are many brands out there but look for one that can handle 2-3 sets of turnout gear at a time max. One brand I see constantly mentioned is Milnor I beleive. There are others on here more familiar that can help you out here.

    I have been looking at Mar 6,7,8 but, not getting enough responses from past attendees to justify setting aside a block of rooms there yet; I would be committing myself to a $5K debt if I booked it now. Will be making a command decison in January but unless more come forwad indicating a commitment to attend, I may not be able to pull it off this year. Stay tuned.

    Warren they started doing tech reviews while the peer review was going on. There have been 1199a updates going on now for two weeks. I have found 4-5 already. Mostly regional projects and trucks.

    Hey guys, I understand that everythings pretty much said and done for this year. But can someone give me a good starting point for next year's application proccess? I'm currently involved in finding as much grants as possible for my (under funded) Volly house, and I know this is a big one.

    When I logged into the portal a few minutes ago, I was prompted to update/verify my info. Is this any indication that we are being considered like the 1199a update, or is this just a random occurance?

    It is what it is.........update/verify your info. This has no bearing on a potential 1199A or an award. You could be asked a number of times to update/verify your info during the year.

    Since I am planning on doing what a lot of the federal government is planning on doing next week and run away for a while I just wanted to tell everyone Merry Christmas and stay safe over the Holidays. See you after the first of the year.
