Bummer Jim, good luck with it.
I was going to ask you the same thing about the field day. I am planning to go, do you want to meet up for lunch? I think I am going to be smart and pack a nice picnic lunch this year instead of waiting in line for bbq, which I don't eat anyway.
So are you considering going to the chemical free beekeeping conference this year in Leominster?
I know you had to work last year, its goes from morning til night so its a long day but you aren't too far from there to drive back and forth.
