Author Topic: Trying to justify the cost of a summer beek gathering...  (Read 971 times)
« on: June 16, 2006, 09:22:46 PM »

I would like to go, even if only for Friday and Saturday.  However vacation time is at a premium and I have already spent a ton on my new hobby this year.  (And I have plans to spend more getting ready for next year, like building 2 long hives and an observation hive.)  By the time I sign up my wife and myself, feed us and our 2 kids, spend a night in a motel, and buy gas to get there and back I would be dropping more than  $200.

With the books and online resources I have access to, especially this forum, as well as a co-worker friend who is a former beek, I am not sure it would be worth it for me, at least not this year.  Sounds fun though.

Interestingly, I see where one of the sessions last year was on 'Natural Cell size', presented by some guy named 'Mike Bush'.  Hmm.   Smiley

Yea, and I gave it again in North Carolina and that one was free.  Smiley

I'm doing an all day queen rearing seminar at my house July the 8th for free also.  If you don't mind sleeping in the tipi out back you won't even have to rent a room.  Smiley

I've been a hermit too long, none of those names mean a thing to me.
