Dennis - Great website, always informative!
I think this system is very complete.
I also think the time schedule is very tight.
But I don't think it has provisions for "bad weather".
It concerns me that I have queens in the pipeline depending on the assumption that the other queens are mated and moved on in a timely mannor.
I'm not knocking the system (I've thought about calendars like this too and it looks good on paper) just seems that practical variables like weather, flow, and dearth could mess up the schedule and the yeilds.
A calendar gives great confidence that a program can be applied easily, one must consider how to "recover" in unfavorable conditions.
Do you shift your calendar back to day zero?
Do you scratch a week off the calendar? (likely)
A beekeeper can become flustered without a contingancy plan, or at least the realization that progress may not be "paper perfect".
There is always more than one way to skin a cat, that's of course if you're into eating cats.
