Isn't once a week more than most folks would find adequate. Most clubs meet once per month and some once every two months. Why so often?
I have an impromptue club that meets at a Chinese Buffet Restaurant, whwenever I'm in the area or when someone else calls a get together. We are friends who enjoy each others company and like to eat Chinese food and happen to be beekeepers. Those with wives come as couples and the singles or unattatched ones come as singles. No dues. No newsletters. We usually talk about more than just bees.
When some of us are in South Carolina we meet at a BBQ shack. Those are often once per week from March 15 until May 1st. A work break and exchange of how things are going with our spring beekeeping.
Just because something is new to you, doesn't mean it is new, or revolutionary. Mark Berninghausen
