August Club Meeting

The first meeting of the season will be held:

On Saturday 1 August at 12 noon at Malcam Rooms, 45 Maori Road, Belleknowes, Dunedin, next to Jubilee Park.

Start with AGM:  the agenda is:

Apologies
Minutes of previous AGM (attached, rules attached)
Reports from President,  Treasurer and Secretary
Election of office bearers
Set subscription
Any other business.

Then on with bee keeping.

Topics:

Bee keepers of the Club hives at Jubilee

Opening hives in spring and inspection.  Probably a talk session, not hands on, as it may be a bit early to open hives safely.  Please bring your veil or bee suit.

An intro course for hobby beekeepers, and mentors/buddies.

Then the usual topics:

varroa management
thinking about preventing swarms

A short talk from a visiting Sawyer from Vermont, who is President of the Harvard beekeeping Club

And lunch (bring your own) and a cuppa tea somewhere in this busy meeting.

Please contact me directly for info, comments, or to point out my usual error(s).

Regards,

Tudor.
