Where in OK are you? If your anywhere near Tulsa I'd like to invite you to come to the Northeast Oklahoma Beekeepers Assoc. We meet the second Monday of the month @ the OSU extension center on 15th. The December meeting will be on the third Monday due to a scheduling conflict. Also if your interested, our spring beginners class will be coming up in January of February.
I'm about 25 miles west of Tulsa, I'd definitely be interested in the meetings and the beginners class. Do you have a link for more info? Also if you know any local suppliers of nucs or packages, I'd love to know about them.
