The following is the schedule we will be following this year:
Registration - 9:30 until 10:00 am
Welcome - 10:00 am
Start Individual Events - 10:15 am
Lunch - 11:30 am
Start Team Activity - 12:15 pm
Awards - 2:00 pm
Please make sure that the students that are doing the team activity eat lunch and are at the Team Activity Site no later than 12:15. These four members cannot be on another state winning cde team that will be competing at the National FFA Convention. Membership rosters will be checked, so make certain all eleven team members are FFA members. Also remember that rain does not stop this cde. I have looked at the long range forecast and it looks clear, but you never know what will happen between now and then.
If you are traveling a long distance and need motel rooms, I can recommend two. These are the Bradford Inn (478-237-2400) or Days Inn and Suites (478-237-9099). Both of these are relatively new and people that have stayed there have said they are nice. If you have any more questions, please contact me.
