Re: Organic beekeeping association meeting
As a special notice to all concerning the Oracle, Arziona 4th Annual conference, be it now known that the widely acclaimed film Queen of the Sun : What are the bees telling us? will now be shown for Friday night Openers, along with the annual Hello's and introductions of speakers. I am very awed to be given this chance to show such a film at our Oracle Conference on Chemical Free beekeeping and will certainly set up special link in the links section for others to go here and learn more about what this amazing organization is doing to help beekeeping get sustainable again. Carolyn Keane and I talked today about it's showing and went over what to expect and I am truly looking forward to seeing the film.....Told her how even speakers coming pay to speak here to keep the organicbeekeepers free and independent of anything that can tie our hands behind our backs for doing chemical free beekeeping and just delighted with the second email received and so have posted first and now second one here for all on list to read and then forward the information to as many lists as possible for dissemination and hope others here can do same to get the word out. For only working together can we clean our industry up to have it become sustainable again.
Again, meeting dates are March 4, 5, 6 at the Triangle YMCA of Oracle, Arizona with cost of $175 per person for 2 nights, 6 meals and all speakers and now this wonderful film to see........and I am sure in going to their wonderful website you will learn more about it and all the wonderful places it shown at that are raving so beautifully about it, and now it coming to our meeting for all to see with Friday night opener and hellos by all speakers coming...
Best Regards to All:
Dee A. Lusby

I was able to discuss with the Director and Producer the possibility of showing Queen of The Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? at your conference. We're very excited about the conference and we agree that one can't ask for a better audience to expose the film to!
It takes a lot to run an office and recoup the money it took to create the film. If we allow the film to be shown for free, we would deeply appreciate it if you would help promote the film screening through your mailing list of 3,700 and let your members know about the conference screening and also about the theatrical release of QUEEN OF THE SUN nationwide! (Screening dates can be found here: http://www.queenofthesun.com/screenings/ ).
We would also request that you send out an announcement after the conference this summer when the DVD is released. This would help tremendously to provide a platform for QUEEN OF THE SUN and allow people to share the film with their friends. We could provide you a link of how people can purchase the DVD at that time. We would gladly write the material for you to include in the two announcements to all of your members.
We would love to cross-pollinate and link to your website and have you link to ours as well (http://www.queenofthesun.com) .
Please let us know if this will be possible. We look forward to talking soon!
