River Star FarmsDate: September 12, 2017
Time: 9 am to 3 pm 
Location:  WTAMU's Nance Ranch
Cost:  $25 per greenhand.  Bring your payment with you made out to Area I FFA Association.

Advisors, district officers, workshop presenters, state officers, WTAMU students PLEASE REGISTER, but you do not pay the registration fee.  We will use any district officers as group leaders and helpers.  Advisors will be used to corral kids, supervise, possible group leaders.  Please expect to stay during the day. The executive committee is asking that you observe the "all or none" policy concerning attendance.  If half the group leaves before agtastic is over, it really puts a damper on the activities for the rest of the group.  Also, WTAMU is planning those events and will purchase/plan for the number of registered students.  Please be considerate of our hosts.

Tshirts can be purchased for $6 for advisors, workshop presenters, DO, WT students and other non-greenhands.  

Lunch is provided for all registered participants - catered by Fuddruckers.

Mr. Been will create invoices and certificates from the spreadsheet of registration.

Check in will be on the west side of the arena.  We are going to ask that we keep traffic to a minimum in the narrow halls at the front of the building.  I will have a check-in sheet to collect payment at that time.

If you have a portable tent that you could bring it would be greatly appreciated.  Please let Dr. Williams know.

We are receiving emails from several of you wanting to add students, you have left off. Here is our stance, At this time we have 600 Greenhands registered, by the deadline. We did not deny any students. With us being at our quota we can not take anymore.
We don't mind if you substitute students with students who have backed out. We are ok with you  working with other schools who might have a student who has backed out. You must realize several things; 1. you will pay for the students you registered.  2. You will receive certificate and t shirt for the students you registered.
If you substitute with another school it will be between you and them, in terms of money, t shirt, and certificate.
The executive team is understanding for your situation but at the same time we must be fair to those who have entered on time.
If you have anyone backing out please let us know and we will post it to the Area.
Thanks
