    Default hike in registration

    What do you folks think about the jump in the price off the meeting from $20.00 to $30.00 is this in line with the registration fees for other states.I know it cost a lot to put one of these on but it seams that was a large jump all at one time.

    I think they call it GREED.

    Our local meeting is $35.00 if you register in advance and $45.00 for walk-ins. I don't think that your $30.00 fee sounds out of line at all.

    I'm sure they needed to make the adjustment to compensate for increases from the rising cost of fuel. We are going to see that happen more this year with all goods and services. I smell greed too, but not from the direction of the Meeting organizers.
    To everything there is a season....

    On whose part? To what end? Have you priced the fees for meeting halls, presenters and airline tickets and motels and meals? You'd spend $30 to feed your family at McDonalds.

    If I spend $30 on eating out, I will buy some real food.

    I am going to a trade show in Baltimore next week. The admission is 300.00, whether advance or at the door. There are no family or group admissions. That 300 is for each and every visitor.

    Now who's greedy.

    Exactly. But you won't buy much real food for $30.00.

    $30 for a 2-day meeting is nothing when it takes $80 to fill my truck's gas tank.
    You can't buy college basketball tickets for $30, and you'll take home a lot more from a bee meeting.

    beegee,



    When I commute, 1 meal at $15 is ok for me. You must eat more than I do.



    For me $1 is two much.



    I agree!

    Well, anyway, the meeting was better than I expected, good information and over 380 in attendance. Kim Flottum from Bee Culture is a very interesting, knowledgeable and listenable speaker. Dr. Suazo gave some good stuff about SHB.

    Summer Meeting is at Pinehurst, Sand Hills Community College.

    I went to engraving school at Troy last summer. Stayed with Wes Smith at the Inn at Eagle Springs.I'll say one thing for the area...there sure aren't many restaurants. Maybe closer to Pinehurst there will be some.

    Yes Bee Gee there are lots of places to eat in the Abeerdeen, Pinehurst, Southern Pines area.Anything from a dollar burger at a fast food place to a $200.00 dollar meal at the carolina hotel and every thing in between.
