Thank you for your participation in the Area 6 Forestry CDE.
I would like to again thank our sponsor Weyerhaeuser; and their representatives: David Hornsby, Daniel Atkins, Lorin Clark, Jacob Sheppard, Wayne Little, Jimmy Barrett, Steve Manning, David Verdery, Regina Flowers, and additional employees that assisted in the execution of a quality event. Additional sponsors include: SAF Black Water Chapter, Ag South Farm Credit, IFCO, Seven Rivers RC & D Council, Rayonier, FRAM, and S&A Dixon Forestry.
I would also like to thank Forestry Consultant Scott Cunningham, Georgia Power Representive Kevin Brazel, the Georgia Forestry Commission GFC Satilla District District Supervisor Jason Gillis, Assistant Supervisor Bo Chesser, and Jamie Smith, GFC Foresters, and Satilla GFC District County Units for their part in making the event happen .
Without the help in monetary support from our sponsors, setting up, judging, grading, event supervision, and scoring assistance from the combined efforts of Weyerhaeuser, GFC, the Clinch, Pierce, Appling County Bus Driving volunteers, Mr. Chad Crews for rescuing the 8 students and 3 adults that got left at Junior Forest Management, and the South Region Agricultural Education Team & Area Officers; the event would not have been possible. Please appropriately thank these individuals for the support of our students when possible.
Both you and your students fill out the event survey links so we may improve our event; remember 2018 is a CDE revision year.
