KARMA - Queen Introduction Frame - LAST DAY TO ENTER
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:56:13 PM »
Well, I thought we could try something new in the forum and see how it goes.

What is KARMA?

It is a random FREE give away to benefit the forum community.  It is also a way for members to give back to the forum community.   So I'm going to go first and we will see what follows.  

I'm going to start by offering a Queen Introduction Frame -> http://robo.bushkillfarms.com/downloads/beekeeping/QueenIntroFrame.pdf
Some have found this to work really well in getting a laying worker hive queen right.
http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,38956.0.html
http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,23161.0.html
http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,17867.0.html

How it works:
  • To be eligible you must have made 30 post before January 22, 2013
  • To enter, you must reply to this post
  • Only one entry per person,  if you reply more than once, only the first reply will count
  • On or after January 29th, at a time of my choosing, I will use random.org to pick a winner
  • I will contact the winner by Private Message and the winner has 24 hours to PM me back with their address
  • Must be US resident (sorry guys downunder  :'(  but feel free to start your own Karma  :lol: )


Good Luck everyone!


Some ground rules for future Karmas if anyone is compelled to give back to the forum community.
  • Let's try to not have more than one Karma going at a time, so try to wait until previous Karma is complete
  • Giver of Karma covers shipping - lets not get into exchanging funds and the hassles and issues that can come along with that
  • Item does not need to be beekeeping related, but that is always a plus
  • Item does not need to be new, but should be in good shape and usable.  So dig out all those things you purchased and tried and now sits collecting dust

Great Idea.

I have done this with beeks in the area with some of the things that I have made and liked how they worked for me and given them to others to see if they liked them as well and to get ideas for improvements. I will take up the February one. just let me know in a PM when you complete yours OK.

Karma is GREAT!  I also think the queen frame would be a good addition to my growing bee equipment!

That appears to be a fine professionally made gadget!  Why do beekeepers have so many gadgets?  Please don't send it to me or I will send you two of mine.  Do you need a marburg swarm box?

Great prize to win as I have this same queen introduction frame from Robo and it worked out great this past year when I had a laying worker.

I will have to think about what I have to give away as well.

I get the feb. one started on last week of the month. I got the thinking cap on to try and make it a worthy one as the first Karma was.
