A total of 41 teams participated in the Central Region Wildlife CDE yesterday at Bleckley County High School.  First I would like to say Thanks to Doyle Floyd and Kevin Jump for allowing us to use their facilities for this.  Also thanks to the Central Region Area Teachers, Area Officers and other FFA members that provided assistance with the grading of papers, shuttling students and support during the cde.  A special thanks to Gully Branch Tree Farm for allowing us to us their trailer for shuttling and to all the teachers for having patience with us as we compiled the scores.  Below will show the top three teams in each category that will be advancing to State Competition on November 5, 2009 at Southeastern Technical College in Swainsboro.  You will be receiving more information concerning the State CDE as time nears.  A complete list of all teams is attached.
