    Well, interestingly none of the FV apps I did had the submission date change, so it means something...although with Peer Review just commencing today, I'm not sure what. It's not something through Tech just yet.

    We have had the same thing happen and each time it resulted in an award....check to see if your requested amount was reduced....not a slam dunk by any means but usually a good sign....

    Steelman- You're application submission date changed on earlier apps that were awarded? First time I have heard of that. Sly- Not sure of what to think if others didn't change. With PR starting today I would think it is premature to consider this an indication of potential award. But who knows!! Good Luck either way.

    As a matter of fact, Good Luck to all! This is the week that all of our hard work will be judged and hopefully rewarded. Although it will still take some time to learn of the results.

    I would agree it is premature, especially considering it changed to a date over a week prior to PR starting!

    Just checked my FV grant and the date changed on it too, but looked at a FV grant from another county department, that I'm sure will not get awarded due to lack of info in the narrative, and their date changed as well.... So I believe there is nothing to this.

    Yep I seriously doubt that since they are just getting into the reviewing right now, that that date change would have any significance whatsoever on likelihood of award.

    It being an election year, I would say that awards will start prior to the election, and the swing states will score big in the early rounds.........LOL

    Bartender you may need to be calling last call for a few of your long term bar stool occupants. I have a feeling a few of them will be bidding us adios next week!

    Figured I would come in here and knock off the cob webs. Some of you are starting to look moldy from sitting here with no movement.

    Yep and no telling when they will get back to it with that snafu going on in NE right now. Hopefully it does not delay things and they get it rolling again this coming week.

    I actually look like that a lot of the time.

    They could at least open FP&S so there was something to do other than wait around and look this good. I mean it is hard work!!

    a lull is not bad timing for me in WNY state, love to see some 1199 break but seeings as we are in the watering hole, I'm happy to report slow grant time makes for more time in the tree stand. The whitetail rut is warming up and the chase is on, bucks are running everywhere.

    I'm in for a quick Jim Beam and diet cola then back to the tree for the next 10 days.

    Yes and while I am up in South Plainfield NJ I park my car outside the rescue squad building where we are doing the class at and as I get out of the car and look down, there are a set of the biggest buck tracks I have seen in quite awhile in the snow going across the parking lot down to the creek bottom; in the middle of the damn city! Was told later that they belong to a 12 point that runs that creek bottom and has abotu 10 does in his harem. Nothing like adding insult to injury!
