Registration is open for the North Region Middle School and Senior Lawnmower CDE's. The Area 1 CDE's will be held at the Chattooga County Livestock Facility in Summerville. The Area 2 CDE's will be held at Oconee County High School.
The Middle School Lawnmower CDE is open to middle school students only, the senior event is open to students in grades 9 - 12. Both CDE's are individual events and chapters may bring only one student to compete.
The courses will be ready for students to drive by 2:30. I am anticipating a large turnout for all of the events and it is important that we have some students present and ready to drive early so we can get all students through the courses before dark at the Area 2 events. The Area 1 events will be under a shelter with lights. Parking instructions and registration locations for the Lawnmower and Nursery Landscape CDE's will be sent out closer to time for the CDE's so please be looking for an email.
Please refer to the Lawnmower CDE Guidelines for information pertaining to the CDE format. The Middle School mower will be a Poulan Pro - Hydrostatic drive 48" lawn tractor. The Senior CDE mower will be an eXmark, zero turn. The deck width should be 60" but could change based on whatever is available. I have attached sample Lawnmower Operator's Manuals to this email for you to use in preparing your students. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Have a great day!
