    Thumbs up

    We got ours.

    BTW, our application was a first time DIY effort. Thanks for the tips found right here on this forum.

    neiowa,

    Congrats on the new pumper/tanker.

    It made us 4 for 6.

    Round 9 brought us a 3,000 gallon tanker.

    I too appreciate all the information that has been available on this forum.

    I tried to attend Brian's seminar in Indy last winter, but a big snow got in the way.

    I'm hoping to get funds approved to attend Kurt's semianr at Montgomery, Indiana. It is only 50 miles from home. The "Gasthof" is a great place to eat. I've never been in "Red Bones", but the "Stop and Sea" has a mean fish sandwich. I had one, yesterday, on my way back from Vincennes. I'll be looking for grant management tips on vehicle procurement.

    I think that I'm starting to love "Big Brother".

    Are they still sending out any Dear Johns? We have not received one and I am wondering if we are still potentially alive or if they have not sent out any DJ's recently?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    There have been no DJ's sent since the compuer DJ's on August 16th. So, you are still in the ballgame. My guess is the next round of DJ's will be sent some where around round 12.
