Glad to hear that. I'm sure you all deserve it, and good to hear it went to the good guys. I've been doing the samething here in TX. with some of the other officers in my unit and nothing yet!! I'll keep trying.

Good for them. I feel bad for them due to all the taxes Ohio has on winnings and the city income taxes they will have to pay but I hope they enjoy themselves they deserve it.
