I would be interested in learning a little bit more about it.

I'd love to attend one of these, and have studied under Dr. Tarpy for a semester.

I attended the mid summer meeting last year in Southern Pines, NC.  A lot of interesting discussions and people attended.

Several beekeeping suppliers usually attend and you can pick up equipment without a freight cost!

Anybody know what other suppliers will be attending?
I would like to get a box of small cell wired medium wax and save on shipping.

I'm sure Brushy Mountain and Rossman will be there.  Both attended last year's summer meeting.

Thanks for the replies,
Brushy is out of stock on the med wired small cell wax and it does not look like Rossman caries it.
I will give them a call and double check.
Thanks again,
Ski

I am still recovering from my conference. I also am attending the Bee college in Gainesville. I apologize but I won't be able to make it.

I forgot about the tax.  No shipping or tax!  That's got to be a bunch of savings if you need woodenware!
