Here's some info emailed to me from the instructor of the class that's coming this monday:
The classes begin at 6:30pm Jan-Jun, but I would get there a little earlier
in January to fill out the Application for the class and membership forms.
There are 6 classes of 1 hour each and 10 very simple open-book tests
(which I will allow people to take home and bring back next class).
After completion of the apprentice class and tests, you will be given a
certificate from the WSBA. Then you will be able to start the Journeyman
class next year. We will have optional patches to be ironed on clothing
for those who wish to get them.
Hopefully at least one class will be given out at our apiary on the WSU
If you have any further questions about the class itself, email me or come
early and I'll answer them.
WSBA, Master Beekeepers Certification Committee Secretary
The president of the club let me know that:
For Members it is $10.00 for the Apprentice Booklet.
For Non-members it is $ 28.00, which is booklet & membership.
Sounds like a blast to me! Can't wait! Hope everyone local here can come!
Jody, 5:45 should be perfect! I wonder if we win the auction for the packaged bees, if we have to pick them up ourselves? Glory Bees are down in Eugene, Or!!! lol Probably be cheaper to just stick with Trees n' Bees. lol
Oh yeah, for those interested (I'm getting one) the club hats are $12, cash or check.
