In May we will be having a field day and cookout rather than a meeting at the Agri-Civic Center.
Our field day will be on Saturday May 11th, 2013. We will begin by meeting at Bill Smith’s home on Hwy 52 South at 8:00 a.m. From there we will go inspect and learn about other member’s beehives.
Our state bee inspector, Nancy Ruppert, will be performing the inspections. If you would like to have your beehives inspected please let Bill Smith, RC Furr, or myself know as soon as possible.
Then about 2:00 p.m. we will meet at Hipo’s Haven Campground, 24076 Saint Martin Road 704-982-5081 (directions) (map) for a cookout.
All Stanly County Beekeeper members and their families are invited to the cookout regardless of whether they participated in the field day or not. We will be having hamburgers, hotdogs, and the fixin’s.
Please bring a dessert if you like. If you will be attending the cookout please let me know by email or phone so we can plan accordingly.
If you signed up to have your beehives inspected or to attend the cookout at the April meeting, then you do not need to respond to this notice unless there has been a change.
We hope to see everyone at the field day/cook out.
We will meet at Judy’s Restaurant in Albemarle at 7:30 AM on Saturday, September 22nd, for our Fall Field Day. We have the larger of the two back rooms reserved — Just tell the guy at the desk that you’re with the beekeepers. Judy’s is on the 24/27 Bypass — street number is 720 Hiway 24/27 East.
We will depart the parking lot at 8:30 AM, and PLEASE CAR POOL, as some folks’ places don’t have room for 30 cars! We will make a large loop from Judy’s, and will end up back there at the conclusion of the tour. The club will provide bottled water, but please bring a bag lunch, your protective gear, and your inquisitiveness.
