This is a final reminder about the State FFA Forestry CDE and the State Jr. Natural Resources CDEs. 

The State Forestry CDE will be held on May 6, 2009 at the Swainboro Recreation Department in conjunction with the Pine Tree Festival and Timber Expo.  We will begin with registration at 9:30 am and the CDE will begin at 10:00 am.  The students will compete in their individual events that morning and compete in the Team Activity at 12:15 pm.  Lunch will be provided for the students and teachers by Shug's Catering, Tommy Greene, starting around 11:00 am.  I hope to have the awards presentation at 2:00 pm.  Also, the City of Swainsboro has a web-site,, that will provide motels and eating places if you need any of these. Here is a link to the recreation complex if you need directions:,-82.368439&spn=0.004076,0.009656&z=17

The State FFA Jr. Natural Resources will be held at Flinchum's Phoenix in Athens on May 2, 2009 starting with registration at 9:30 am.  Lunch will not be provided, but we should be done by noon or a little after.  I am pasting a link that shows a map of where Flinchum's Phoenix is located if you need directions on getting there.  Please contact me if you have questions or concerns about either of these events.,-83.359151&spn=0.015214,0.038624&t=h&z=15
