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, Tyler Pope, Scott Flick, Garik Louge 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, S&A Dixon Forestry, and others.
I would also like to thank Forestry Consultant Scott Cunningham, Georgia Power Representative Kevin Brazel, Mean Dean Oliver, the Georgia Forestry Commission GFC Region 5 Regional Forester Jason Gillis, Zone 2 FMO; Bo Chesser, and Forest Area 10 FMO Jamie Smith, GFC Foresters, and the Old Satilla GFC District County Units (FMO Area 7, 8, 9, 10) for their part in making the event and the other 7 events 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 Liberty, Pierce, Echols County Bus Driving volunteers (no one got left at Forest Management this year, good deal), 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.
Congratulations to the teams who will be representing Area 6 next Thursday at the State Forestry Field Day in Swainsboro, GA.
