    To Mike and anyone going to Wooster I will be there wearing a yellow "Warren County Beekeepers Association" shirt. I look forward to meeting you. My name is Tony.

    Also, this is good opportunity to save on shipping costs. I have Jamie From Blue Sky bringing a big pile of stuff for me.

    Apologies Colonial Beekeepers, but I had to bump you to get this post back up to the top. Since the meeting is this Friday and Saturday, I just want to shout out one last time to any newcomers that it's a great event and not to miss.
