    Bumping this one back up to the top...

    Seems like we've hit another slump for 1199s for DHS to get a chance to catch up. They've probably got enough right now to pump out quite a few rounds.

    Interesting to me is that only a few SAFER 1199s seemed to leak out a week or so ago. Wonder why so few? We do know that SAFER doesn't have nearly the amount of awards that AFG does, especially with the size of some of them for hiring.

    Don't forget, still got FP&S to go. Fingernails are about gone here.

    Wonder if we'll see any Trifectas or even SUPERFECTAS this year? Already got a few Quinellas out there. Did any of our Double award winners go for SAFER and FP&S too?

    Good luck to all those still in the running!

    More 1199As were posted today on main AFG, don't know about SAFER.

    SAFER takes more admin work on their end to get things rolling with each award, so that's why they release so few at a time, especially since AFG is still moving.

    Almost had a hat trick but that got stopped today. Lots of doubles funded, good pile still in the game. So few go for all, I wouldn't doubt we see a few funded for 3-4 2007 awards across all 3 programs. Can't win if you don't play.

    If the need is there and they're handing out money, might as well put your hat in the ring. It's the program's job to level the field and decide who gets funded. The more apps submitted the more demonstrated need for more funding.

    No greed here besides, I have a few folks I told we had little chance since we funded all the high priority stuff already. Still want to submit an app, but low priority needs are a slim chance. Most are happy after the PPE, SCBA, and TICs are taken care of. I had 30+ that didn't apply after winning in 2006, they just didn't want to go for 2 years in a row. The rest all have many, many needs.
