Thank you to Mr. Dale Stark and Blalock Equipment for providing the mowers and assisting with the CDE.  Thank you to Mr. Don Quarterman for assisting with the problem solving and written exam portion of the CDE.

A special thank you to Mr. Lynn Hancock and Mr. Earl Barrs for providing us with a dry location to set up and run the CDE.  It rained all day and options were slim but Mr. Barrs' warehouse provided an ideal location that was dry and well lit.

Results are attached.
