CSBA Winter Meeting just 3 weeks away!

October 14, 2012 Tim Hardy blog

All–

The CSBA Winter Meeting is just 3 WEEKS AWAY!  It is being held at Roxborough Community Center on Saturday, November 3rd from 9-5.  The meeting will feature Dennis vanEngelsdorp of the Bee Informed Partnership.  I heard Dennis speak at the ABF conference in Las Vegas this year and he was wonderful!  He is not a technical speaker–just an engaging and enlightening one.  Go to the CSBA website, http://coloradobeekeepers.org/wintermeeting, and listen to some TED talks by Dennis.

Pre-registration is coming along nicely and I just wanted to put a “buzz” in your ear to remind you that if you have not pre-registered, you should!  You get a 15% discount for pre-registering. Go to the CSBA site, http://coloradobeekeepers.org/wintermeeting, to download a pre-registration form or to pay with Paypal.  Of course, lunch will be served and is included in your pre-registration fees.

This year, we are going to try a new event–a Friday night Meet and Greet which will feature some of our local brewers and mead-makers and non-alcoholic beverages from one of our commercial partners, Honeydrop beverages.  We are also going to host a honey dessert bar!  Please be sure to pre-register for this event also so we know how much food to prepare.

Worried about funds?  Volunteer to be a judge for the BIG MONEY HONEY contest.  If you volunteer, and attend training, and judge, the CSBA will cover your registration fees.  This will involve about 3 hours of work including the training.  Please email or call me at the contact information below if you are interested in judging.  Let me know if you would like to attend the Friday night judge training from 5:30 to 6:30 pm or the Saturday morning judge training from 9-10 am.  I only need 3 more judges at this time.

If you are coming in from out-of-town, we have hotel accommodations available at a nice discount.  http://coloradobeekeepers.org/wintermeeting has all the information on obtaining those rooms.  Make a weekend out of it!

I hope to see you there!
