    I would say an hour on 2 inches and 2 at most on 4 inches that lot is wide open nothing to watch out for so it would go quick! As far as salt i would say that is plenty

    I would agree on time to plow with above statement, salt is too much IMO. I would think 6-7 bags at most.

    Your probably right on the salt on churches i tend to put down a little more since its usually older folks and it just makes me feel better.

    Site I was turned on to through guys on here. You can get the lot size without a problem. Figure 1 hour per acre....

    Your site there comes to:
    1.125 acres so about 1 1/4 hours roughly. That is with it being wide open, and no extra obsicles. Then add up from there for sidewalks and your trigger increments.

    That's good info, thanks much. I think I will bid it at a low seasonal since I want it. Also give 2-4",5-7", and 8-10" pricing. I'm thinking the 2-4" dollar amount times 20 if I want it and 25 otherwise. Too low? What #s do you guys use for seasonals? I know it depends if you want it or not. .20/lb salt seems the going rate also. WI last year we had 30 events I think.
