Several questions have arisen about the "New" Ag Sales CDE.  I am going to
try and answer them at this time.

Please do not think that if you don't own a self darkening welding helmet
that you cannot participate in the Sales CDE or you have to go out and
purchase 4 for the cde.  The judges will be instructed to treat all helmets
as if they are self-darkening types.  There will not be any points deducted
if the presenter does not have an actual helmet.  If your students want to
use a helmet as a prop, any type helmet will work.  Pictures of helmets will
work also.

As they research the product, they can print brochures and other items that
will help sell the product.

Since they are selling a Miller Self Darkening Welding Helmet, you can
assume that they are working for Miller and business cards and other items
can be made up to that fact.

I hope this answered the questions that have been brought up so far.  If you
have more, please don't hesitate asking.  Good luck to all teams as they
prepare for this cde.
