  • 7th Inning Stretch

    I know what y'all are thinking: Holy Molasses in Winter, Batman. only 129 awards for Round 7?!

    Same thing I thought. But, whatcha gonna do but wait.

    I just realized that I haven't done my nerd thing lately and post the numbers:

    Thru R7

    1893 total awards for $193,893,738

    1462 Ops & Safety for $116,576,997 out of $362,800,000 (Fire & EMS)
    432 Vehicles for $77,316,741 out of $136,200,000 available (Fire & EMS)

    So we're at less than half of the Equipment, just over half of the Vehicles announced. Lots of dough to go.

    I'll have more nerd fun later when I run the state breakdown. I have to modify the Excel file and upload it into the database.

    Only 1 here in Kansas

    Only had 1 for a Kansas department in round 7 but on the bright side - it's one more than we had in round 6.

      I know it's cold, snowy, sleeting and miserable down your area (nice and warm here on the East Coast 70 degrees ) so we won't hold it against you for the brain freeze. If my addition holds true there are 1894 awards to date.

      Molasses in winter, I'm beginning to wonder if any one is alive over there. At this pace it could take another 12 rounds to complete the awards.

      Time to get ready for the overnight Xmas party w/the wife. No kids...yahooooooo. Bring on the beer.

        Yeah, off by 1 on the total. I was doing it by scrolling the spreadsheet and counting the Tooltip text. Must have grabbed the same one twice.

          Well I think the wait will be soon over. I just sent in my 10 Questions and 1199A update so now the feds can get going again, I'm sure they were waiting for me...lol

          Suspense sucks.

                2008 might be a bit optimistic.

                    10-Q, didn't think anything came out the other day. Nothing at all this week from what I can tell, so hopefully more notifications soon. We're only 3 months out from 2007 opening, better have Plan A, B, & C together. A - awarded, B - denied same project, C - denied different project. Everyone not denied or pending at this point made it past the computer so have to decide if you get denied if improvements can be made to the narrative or if the computer score held you back. Enough to get into Peer, not enough to overcome the situation.
