WCOBA April 2013 Meetings
WCOBA hosts monthly club meetings at multiple sites throughout west central Ohio.  We strive to serve the beekeeping community with relevant information for all our beekeepers including beginners, intermediate and advanced apiarists.  In addition to our planned agenda, the Open Forum session provides our members the opportunity to discuss real issues or insights from their own apiary.  Come to learn.  Come to share.  Come to help.
WCOBA - Beekeepers Helping Beekeepers.  Join us in April for these great topics.

* Open Forum & Member Topics
* Spring and Early Summer Management
* Preparation for Winter 2013/14 (what you should be doing now)
* The Great Queen and Nuc Project
For a backgrounder in preparation for our Queen & Nuc discussion, we have provided some links to a presentation (parts 1 & 2) given by Michael Palmer on sustainable beekeeping to the Prince William Regional Beekeepers Association.  Palmer has created a sustainable operation at his apiary in Vermont using Nucs and Queen rearing techniques.  In these videos he shares his system to eliminate dependency on sunbelt packages and queens while creating and overwintering your own replacements for losses.
Additional Meeting Site starting in June
We are pleased to announce that this summer we will be adding another monthly meeting site to serve our growing community of beekeepers.  We will meet in Mount Victory, OH on the second Tuesday of the month beginning June 13, 2013.  Stay tuned for more details.
