The CSBA Summer Meeting will be held at Paul and Nanci Limbach’s beautiful property in Silt, CO on       Saturday, June 15th from 9-6.  Registration opens at 8:15.  Never been to Silt?  Now is your chance!  Silt is located on the Colorado River just west of Glenwood Springs.  It isn’t really a bad drive from anywhere!

I spoke with the Holiday Inn Express in Silt and was able to procure a special beekeepers rate for the event.  Here is a link to the hotel property but you need to CALL to get the special rate of $80 for a standard, 2 queen room.  Discounts are also available for upgraded rooms.  970-876-5100  Thanks to Joe, the general manager, for offering us even lower rates than last year!

Janet Fink suggested that we also procure a lodging deal for Glenwood Springs–especially for those attending the Beekeepers Ball–so we did!  The Quality Inn and Suites is offering a room with a single queen bed for $89 and two queen beds for $99.  These are all river facing rooms and include breakfast.  Again, you will need to CALL to get the special room rates:  970-945-5995.

Featured speaker will be Dr. Dewey Caron with special appearances by Project Apis m., Danny Culhane of Honeyville in Durango and Dr. Ron Fessenden on Honey and Health.  For a biography of Dr. Caron, please click here.   Here is a description of the featured talks, too.  It will be a full day!

A link to the pre-registration form can be found hereWhile pre-registration is not required, it is awfully helpful to ensure that everyone has enough to eat.  Another technological advance is that you will now be able to pre-register using Paypal on the CSBA site.  If you would like to use this convenient way to pay, simply go to the bottom of the page to register.

Of course, it would not be a Summer Meeting without the Beekeepers Ball!  The Beekeepers Ball will be Saturday evening after the meeting, at 8 pm.  This year, someone was able to secure our venue before we could so we are excited to try a new restaurant, Fins, for the event.  I think that the chef has worked up a darn nice menu.  Click here to see if you agree.  The Beekeepers Ball is first-come, first-served as there is LIMITED SEATING.  Please RSVP to me at 970-213-3099 or president@coloradobeekeepers.org or simply click on the PayPal button below.  Don’t delay—this dinner fills very quickly and is truly a ball!  Special thanks to Donna Hartley for finding us a new spot!

I look forward to another full house and hope to see you there on June 15th.  See full Schedule.

Thank you for being a member.
