    A large lawn care in n. Va gave up a contract because they wouldnt be plowing the property. The turf contract alone is worth $359,000.00

    Sonrise,
    only 2 times as big? WOW! That is about.......(calculating)...... 450 times bigger than my "BIG" contract. Maybe i should load up my '73 3/4 Ton chevy and pick up a plow on the way. Or maybe, ill just bolt a big 4X10 board to my bumper and call myself a plow man! It could work....... or not.

    I wish you the best of luck on your bid sir.

    Now I'm really curious to know which of the 'big boys' this is. There seems to be one in every crowd.
