Tim is a great person. He has been president of NJBA, as well as the South Jersey Branch for many years. A few of the forum mebers have had a chance to meet him at my house recently too. He is not big brother, but an emissary for beekeeping. Whether you have one hive, or thousands. I missed the article, so thanx understudy. I have never seen tim wear any gear. I rarely do, but I always smok'em. He will be a huge asset to NJ beeks for sure. I can honestly say that if someone else was running the bee club, I probably would have wlaked away after one year. Now I am involved more than I ever thought I would . I thought I would poke my head in, learn, and move on.
