    Default Schedule / Speakers / Classes?

    When will a schedule of speakers and classes for the 2008 HAS be available? I am aware of the website...and the registration info is there, however we would like to know more of the specific details and plans. Thanks!

    Default Where?

    Hey Danno...
    I just followed your link and do not find anything about speakers etc. All I find is registration info. Am I missing something? Thanks!

    "Tentative Program Now Online! Print it out and share with your local beekeepers. PDF or Word format."

    Just click on whichever one you'd prefer & download it. It still doesn't have the days or times for each presentation. But it does have a list of teachers and a description of what they will be teaching. Thanks so much for your interest in HAS! We sure hope to see you there. Thanks again, Danno

    Default Thanks Danno

    Hey Danno...I went back and tried refreshing my browser and sure enough...that was the problem I was having. When I refreshed the webpage, up came the link to the requested info. Looks good! I would sure like to go...it is a bit of a trip from here, but if we can buy enough of that $4 per gallon gas we just may try to make it. Thanks again!

    Hey Danno,

    In a January thread, you and Rob were saying that Michael Bush would (again) be at HAS, but I don't see his name on the list.

    Looks like a great line-up though. I'm really hoping I'll be able to make it; July has some conflicts (4-H, family reunion and HAS) and I haven't figured out how to "do it all".

    Exclamation as far as I know, Michael Bush will be there

    I saw an email between Michael & Rob Mountain to that effect. I will double check this, or maybe Michael could reply & let us know for sure. Thanks for asking! -Danno

    Exclamation almost ready!

    Jim and others, sorry it is not there now. It was supposed to go up online this week, then someone pulled out and the replacement had to be found and plugged into different time slots. Sorry about that...not your problem I know, but this is a total volunteer effort to keep the cost down. It should be up any day now. I'll let you all know as soon as it's up there. Keep an eye on this site. Thanks again for your patience! -Danno

    It was a great HAS meeting in great facilities. The food was delicious, facilities were all close together and user friendly, lots of vendors, and plenty of knowledge to try and soak up.

    I think my only complaint was I got cold my first night there.

    The Committee did a fantastic job.
