Welcome to the forum.
If your hesitation is from doubt, talk to the people in your club and let them know you are looking for a mentor. Most mentors will let you work their hives beside them so you can learn and become comfortable around 40 to 200 thousand bees.
A word of warning: beekeeping is fun (IMHO) and addictive. Let us know how you are doing and feel free to post pictures and ask questions. We like to help other beekeepers. -Mike
