Tulsa, OK -- March 28 & 29 2014 -- NEOBA's Big Bee Buzz
« on: February 07, 2014, 10:01:18 AM »
Notheast Oklahoma Beekeepers Association will hold the annual Big Bee Buzz conference on the evening of Friday March 28 and day on March 29, 2014 at the Eastside Christian Church near 15th & Harvard in Tulsa Oklahoma. Speakers include Jim Tew, Les Crowder, and Ed Levi. For details, go to NEOBA.org or post your questions here. Cost is $30 which includes lunch on Saturday, and you will be able to pre-register online in the near future.
 
I will post a schedule of speakers and topics once I get that figured out, hopefully within the next week.

It took a little longer than expected, but we now have a schedule.  Also, we have added Grant Gillard as a speaker.  This is a really, really solid panel of speakers who will provide a great deal of very practical information.  I don't think you can find many regional conferences that will have this sort of content, particularly for $30 a person with food included.  We are trying to make this worth a a trip to Tulsa, and I think we have succeeded.

You will be able to pre-register online soon.
