SWAPO news ....

SWAPO news …. We are still waiting to hear from Kastner / Chesapeake for the Hotspot 2 area. As soon as we know, we will issue an email and an update on this blogspot. Hotspot 1 has been approved to sign with either Edge or Chesapeake per the email we previously sent. All other areas are being asked not to sign with any gas agent that may come to your door or mail you an offer.
FYI we have updated the blogspot with all our resource information, which are the links located at the very bottom of these postings. All of them should prove informative. Thanks, SWAPO.

SWAPO news ....

... letters (emails) have gone out tonight to all who have registered. Briefly...
      We are in process of sorting MOI's by area neighborhoods and neighborhood Captains. This will be the best way to negotiate with Chesapeake by smaller areas under consideration to drill, not the entire SWAPO area like in 2007. This is a time consuming process.

        Therefore we need your MOI's, today, or ASAP, faxed in to our central gathering place which is David Hart's fax: 817-299-8491, by email: dharthomes@gmail.com, or US Mail: 3320 Thorn Hill Dr, Arlington, TX. 76001-5217. We prefer Fax or Email.

Second... Everyone, please make sure you have registered with us to get our emails, even if you have filled out an MOI you must register with us by clicking this link:  http://eepurl.com/fqnvQ  Thank you, SWAPO.
