Registration is now open for the North Region Agricultural Sales CDE's.  The Area 2 CDE will be held at Oconee County High School on Nov. 15, 2011 and the Area 1 CDE will be held at Sonoraville High School on Nov. 17, 2011. The CDE's will begin at 4:30 p.m. please arrive no later than 4:30 p.m.  Students will not be taking a written exam at the area CDE. Please call if you have any questions. Please remember that the *Area Sales CDE* will consist of one component this year, Individual Sales.  Each team member will sell the same product, but to different customers.  You should assign your team members letters A thru D before the cde.  All Number A's will sell to the Customer Profile A listed on the attached sheet and B's to B, C's to C and D's to D. Also remember to double check the rules in advance and ask questions if you have any.
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.
