Thank you for visiting Quad County Beekeepers dot com!
We are gearing up for November. November is going to be a busy month for Quad County Beekeepers Association. We will have our regular meeting on the 5th of November 2013. Quad County Beekeepers Association will be holding its meetings on the first Tuesday of every month for the rest of this year and all of 2014. QCBA is also going to offer a Pre Beekeeping Class on the 16th of November 2013 from Noon to 4:00 pm. There will be a $10.00 registration fee and because of space, the class will be limited to 30 individuals.
The subjects for the November Meeting will be “Missouri Apiculture Law” presented by Ian Brown and “Package Bees vs. NUCs” presented by Fred Meder. Quad County Beekeepers Association will have a question and answer period from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm. The regular meeting will be held from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. We will break in between classes for refreshments and social time for members to talk. As always, we encourage members to bring a snack to share with the group. The October cooking contest was won by Mark Watson with some really awesome cookies. Thanks to everyone that participated.
Quad County Beekeepers Association is offering a Pre Beekeeping Class for those individuals thinking about getting into beekeeping. If you are not sure about what you are getting into, this is the class for you. This is not a how to beekeeping class. This is going to be what is involved and required to become a beekeeper. We will cover equipment requirements, cost, and time requirement. We hope to give you the information you need to make the choice of “Two keep bees or Not to keep bees.”
We have had an issue with some of our members not getting the Quad County Beekeepers Newsletter. We are checking into the problem. If you signed up for the newsletter through the website and our not getting it, let us know. Also check your spam folder in your email to see if it is going to spam?
