    I'll be driving in also, but only about an hour out. Hoping they are off on the snow fall amount, they seem to be batting about 50% on their forcast.

    Well Ft Wayne was cold and snowy but my word what a fabulous training facility and what a good class we had here; thanks Ft Wayne FD for providing a great venue for this last class. Time to pack it up and wing it south today and then right back out and back to the deep freeze of New Hampshire once again in Epping FD for a two day class on March 12th -13th. Looking forward to another huge bowl of the best clam chowder in NE at The River House in Portsmouth. Yum yum! Still room for more students in Epping if you sign up before Monday.

    Default AFG Super Summit 2013

    For those experienced and previously experienced Fire Act grant writers the annual 2013 AFG Super Summit is being held at Waterford FD halfway between Flint and Detroit, MI on April 25-27th. Come and join in this 3-day "brain trust" and "think tank" of some of the most successful Fire Act grant writers in the US as we develop and improve your 2013 submission to the AFG program. The recent sequestration letter and which has resulted in additional funding cuts to FEMA grants, makes it imperative that you turn in a A+ application. This gathering of minds can help you to improve and submit that type of application giving you a competitive edge. For further information and to register go here:

    Hey folks next up is Spring Hill TN on April 19th -20th. We need two more students to make this happen for the others that have signed up to attend. Spring Hill is about 30 miles south of Nashville and at this time of year will be just blooming out and greening up. If you were the recent, unfortunate recipient of a computer DJ letter, time to get in to one of the few remaining classes left for this year and find out how to change that situation around before 2013 AFG opens for apps. Should be a great class.

    AFG recent announcement of their timeline for opening of 2013 AFG looks like it is going to be summer again. That means I will have time to put a couple more classes in for those of you that may be wanting to attend but didn't see a class nearby. If you are interested in hosting a class, and getting your seats free, give me a shout at 863-551-9598.

    Alright everyone was hollering about not being in Texas this year so Woodson VFD in Albany, TX (30 min north of Abilene) has agreed to host me in there on June 14-15. Should be right there when AFG is just getting ready to open up so good chance to brush up those skills for 2013. http://firstrespondergrants.com/frg_..._view/class/75

    Headed into Chicago tomorrow and down to Amboy FD for the class this weekend. Looking forward to some cooler, notice I did not say cold, weather.

    Boy, West of the Mississippi states has turned on this week requesting classes. Just set another one for Kingman, AZ for late June. Gonna enjoy that one only way in is to fly to Las Vegas and you can bet I will have at least one night there on the way back home. Viva Las Vegas!

    Well looks like Johnstown, PA is back on the schedule once again. This time with Dep Chief Trent Roberts at Middle Taylor Twp VFC on Jun 8-9, 2013 ( yes that is a Sat and Sun). Wow, first time going to Johnstown with "no probability of snow". Darn, I won't know how to act? Made a car reservation and had to go back and change it because I automatically booked a 4 x 4. LOL This will be the last class before AFG opens so "last chance PA" register early at:http://firstrespondergrants.com/frg_..._view/class/77
