The field day is next Saturday. For those of you in driving distance of the Deerfield MA this is a nice event to attend. They do some great presentations and they have had a great turnout each time I attended. Perhaps good chance to catch up with a familiar face from Beemaster forums or one of several beekeeping facebook groups from that vicinity. Smiley

Well we made it back home from the venture to the field day. I only wish I could have stayed a while longer after the final events. It turned out to be a beautiful day. It was a bit warm,but bright and sunny and a breeze blowing most of the afternoon. They put on a great educatioanl experience for those who chose to come(which was a bunch). I am told there were 150 pre registered and about 100 walk ins. Thanks to those that put on this free event every year, and thanks to those that come to show their appreciation for such things.
 Did I understand the speaker from U MAss they move the event from the Ag research to another more favorable area department of agronomy?
