Teachers,

The state FFA Wildlife Management CDE will be held on Saturday March 22nd at the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources on the University of Georgia campus in Athens. The top two teams from each of the six area CDEs are eligible to compete.

The event schedule is as follows:

8:15am - 8:45am Registration

8:45am Announcements

9am - 10am Junior Team Activity / Senior Practicums

10am - 11am Junior Practicums / Senior Team Activity

Event registration and staging area will be held in Forest Resources, Building 2, Room 100. Bus parking is available directly behind the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. To access the parking lot, turn onto East Green Street from East Campus Road. Driving directions to Athens and the University of Georgia Campus can be found at:

Each participant must have a clean clipboard, two sharpened pencils, and may have an electronic calculator. Calculators used in this event should be non-programmable with only these functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, equals, percent, square root, +/- key, and one memory register. No other calculators are allowed to be used during the event.

Each participant must bring his or her own instruments needed for particular events. For instance, measuring devices will be needed to determine antler length in the Whitetail Deer Management practicum. If there is a question as to whether a particular piece of equipment will be allowed, the decision will be made by the Area Forestry Teachers. (The tape used to measure each antler will be placed with that antler. We also used an official Boone and Crockett tape for each antler)

All state Wildlife Management CDE rules can be found at www.gaaged.org. If special student accommodations are needed for disabilities please contact Jerry Taylor prior to the event.

Thanks,
