    Cool 2012 AFG Watering Hole

    Hey bartender can you do me a favor and make room for me and about 11999 friends. It is going to be a long 60 days. Can please stock up so a lot of us can have doubles too?

So heres the question small volunteer department with 25 members would any of yall even attempt SAFER. Bartender another round and make it a double.

    Sixty days sounds a little optimistic. No SAFER for me; I'm too beat up after AFG. Hey does anyone know what the criteria is for regional aps going straight to peer and avoiding the computer screening?

    The regionals no longer go straight to PR, they follow the same process as all applications for scoring; 50% computer & 50% PR.

    Boy howdy after that "feeding frenzy" of last year, I am glad to see them subjecting all of them to a computer score. Bartender, it's been a long, long month can you just hang a drip IV of JD in my arm?

    Thought I read in the guidance doc that some regionals would skip the computer screening. Man I hope we get past the computer. Still need to mosey on up to the AFG watering hole either way. Slept for fifteen hours straight after submitting on Friday.

    Safer sounds like a good challenge. R&R???? Question is, what actually has worked in the past?

    Like the thought that the Regionals will be subjected to the computers as well!

    Bartender keep the booze and give me a diet Dew! (I'll be the DD!)

    Angry while we're waiting

    Wouldn't it be nice while we are waiting to be able to 'close out' a grant from 2009? Can they really be still having trouble with the computer module? After three years, it's getting a little lame, don't you think?

    So things have slowed down on the boards again I see. Been away for a few days and figured I would be way behind and would be a while getting caught up. Brian did you get to make to OCS this year yet?

    Review was initailly scheduled for the week of the 20th, anyone heard anything? I figured the delay in closing the app period may have moved things back, but had not heard for sure? Anything from the gurus, or the peanut gallery?

    Talked to friend who is scheduled for PR on 8/19-24 as of 2 days ago. Guessing it will still be on schedule.

    Default Submittial date

    So this year as usual I submitted both a FO and FV application. I just looked at my status page and it appears the submittial date for my FV appllication has changed to 8-13-12 while the FO still dates back to July. Could this be a sign? Thanks

    More likely that the new FV date coincides with tech repair of application that originally caused naratives to disapear from veiw after submitting app. See the "vehicle grant narative missing?" thread on this forum for history and info about this glitch.
