    Default Kurt is coming to SE Michigan

    February 22 and 23, 2008 - Kurt Bradley of Chief Grants is coming to Waterford Township Fire Department. This event will occur just before the 2008 AFG window opens. Great time to sharpen your grant writing skills. Waterford is located in the center of Oakland County, 30 miles North of Detroit. 1 Hour from Lansing or Toledo, 2 hours from Grand Rapids. There are 2 hotels and numerous restaurants in the area.

    I attended a March '07 seminar in Indiana. I learned so much and have had great followup with Kurt. I know you will gain tremendous knowledge and insight into the grant writing process.

    email me: JLyman@twp.waterford.mi.us

    Looking forward to seeing you there!!!

    Lt. John H. Lyman

    I swear John, if you guys have a blizzard, like we did at greenacres2 place last year, I am going to just roll over and die. Thankfully, my Dad lives close by in Clio so at least I have refuge if I need it!

    Amazingly enough there is no snow in the forecast for that weekend. It's a miracle, an AFG miracle!

    I just wish that I had bought my powerball ticket in Richmond Indiana. Earl, you wouldn't have been traveling through that area would you? I know that you have the luck of the Irish just around the bend from you. The way you get all these grants must have some luck in there.

    If you got that dreaded DJ yesterday, time to get off the fence and get into a seminar.

    Kurt,

    Thinking about the Michigan seminar coming up in February, the blizzards and your travel adventures (losing luggage) - I have a Wal-Mart and Target close by for you to buy clothes.

    We give Kurt a lot of static about weather (well-deserved), but if that Michigan seminar has the kind of talent we had in LaPorte, IN (or Kelly had in Alum Banks)...there would be no harm in being locked in a room with either group of 30 people for 2 days.

    In other words...Kurt and Brian are wizards but the classrooms tend to be loaded with pretty talented folks who are willing to brainstorm (even without adult beverages if necessary) and the idea exchange alone is worth taking the trip.

    In the last two days another 3 students have signed up for the Waterford seminar AKA the "Kurt Bradley winter excursions". We are praying for good weather. Email me or see the website

    If you got DJ'd this year then you need to come to the seminar - you will be better prepared for the grant year.

    Let's go you Firehouse forum users. If you need a refresher-course for grant-writing you need to come to Michigan, February 22 & 23.

    Weather may be cold here, but the coffee will be hot.

    Lunches and one dinner are included.

    Registration is still $299, but only for a couple more weeks. I have reached the 20 student mark. Plenty of seats available.

    http://www.chiefsupply.com/grants/index.asp.

    Email me if you need hotel information. jlyman@twp.waterford.mi.us

    John's got good taste in coffee and food--that alone may be worth the price of admission!!
