It is that time of year for most and maybe a little late for some others. That time is the right window for checkerboarding. Anyone interested in participating in a thread on checkerboarding Walt Wright style please post. I say Walt Wright style because many make changes to his system and call it checkerboarding and refer to it as checkerboarding. I would like the post to stay on track with checkerboarding and the system as Walt has coined it and tried to share with all.
I ask please that the thread be for those that have used the system or would like to learn how to use the system. Negative naysayers, I respectfully ask you to refrain from posting. By all means if you have tried the system and it did not work out post your experiences, in a positive way, and let's try to learn from them. Maybe we can identify something that went wrong while you were trying to implement the system and shed light on it for all or maybe it just ain't for you.
On the other hand maybe you have used checkerboarding as Walt explains in his writing and it has both helped you to control swarms and increased your honey yield. By all means we need you to participate also.
I tried to get Walt to come to the forum several years back and at the time he said he could not handle two forums. He post frequently on the other one. Walt is in his 80's now and over the last few years has become more familiar with the use of his computer so maybe I can lure him over to join us on the thread. We will see??? I have talked to Walt by phone and corresponded by Pm mail. Before he got real familaier with computers he was having his son-in-law post and help him. Heck he took the time to answered question(s) I had through postal service. He is that eager to help!
We at Beemaster, I hope John and Ken don't mind me saying we, pride ourselves in being a positive learning forum. The moderators try to keep the post non- confrontational and don't mind booting you if they think you get out of line. The moderators do a good job in keeping it that way although their decision may not be popular to some. I say this because if you read some of the post to Walt on the other site they are wellll...... you know. Can we do this thread in a positive way and make it a learning experience?
