A Brief Report from the UBAC Meeting at Olds College May 11, 2019

Unread post by Allen Dick » May 12th, 2019, 5:12 pm

I have a brief report from the UBAC meeting at Olds College yesterday.

https://unitedbeekeepers.org/education-2/

The cost was $40 and there was no catering and the food fair was not open, so people got coffee, water and bagged cookies.

Apparently there were 37 people in attendance, including organizers. I heard the program was good, but not detailed. I did not hear if there were any sponsors.

The timing was bad IMO. It is hard to get beekeepers to show up during bee season for a meeting that is not in a beeyard. Mothers Day weekend is a time when most are committed, too.

I was not there, so please add details if you were there.
