      2. There needs to be more than one RFQ.-Quanda is going to reach out to the district to ask for a quote from another company.

    2. New - Marching Band Trailer - update from facilities: We are in the process of getting a new truck for the grounds department that will be capable of pulling this new trailer. Availability has been throwing a wrench into this. John, I believe we were thinking around a 36' gooseneck trailer for this? This would give you 28' of floor space along with the 8 feet of storage above the hitch of the trailer. This would be in addition to using the current band trailer as well. Looking at prices on something like this we will need to have a budget in the realm of $40,000 for a good quality trailer. I will make some calls and get some current pricing and lead times from our local vendors. Also for reference here is a link to a 36' trailer that's currently for sale in O'Fallon Missouri:
