Thank you to all of the students who participated in the Area 1 Tractor Driving CDE held yesterday at the Calhoun Experiment Station River Farm. I'd like to take this opportunity to call out a few chapters who went above and beyond to help take down tents, dismantle the tractor driving course load the trailer and clean up. Thank you to Creekside High School FFA members and their Advisors, Mr. Traves Hyman and Mrs. Veronica Owens, Adairsville High School FFA members and their Advisor, Mr. Adam Joslin and to Cass High School for supplying the spreader and to Mr. Dean and his students for loading it up.

Thank you also to all Advisors and students for your patience and understanding as we waited for our tractor to arrive.
