Colorado State Beekeepers Association Winter Meeting

The Colorado State Beekeepers Association Winter Meeting will be held at Kirk Hall at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Saturday, November 9th, 2013 from 8 am to 5 pm.  The Fairgrounds are located just east of I-25 off Exit 181.

On Friday evening from 7-9 pm, we will have the “Meet and Greet” at the Lowell Ranch at Plum Creek. Dave Mendes will be in attendance as will Senator Gail Schwartz of Aspen.  There will be light food and beverages as well as a bee trivia contest.  Prizes will be awarded.

The featured speaker on Saturday is Dave Mendes.  Dave is former president of the American Bee Federation.  Dave is also a large—very large—migratory beekeeper from North Fort Myers Florida and he will be delivering two talks:  “A Year in the Life of Headwaters Farm” and “Honeybee Nutrition 101”.

While Dave is the “Main Event”, he is not the only event.  We have a full day of interesting speakers!

The meeting will also feature the BIG MONEY HONEY contest.  The top honey entry winner will take away a prize package worth $300, a beautiful hand carved wooden plaque and the traveling trophy with their engraved nameplate.  Rules and entry forms can be found on the CSBA website.

The CSBA would like to invite ALL Colorado beekeepers to the meeting and look forward to seeing you there.  Take advantage of discounted pre-registration fees by returning the form by October 31st or register online at: http://coloradobeekeepers.org/wintermeeting/

I hope to see you there!
