    Blue Sky Bee Supply will be there as we have been the past few years. This will be our last meeting before 2009 prices go into effect Feb. 1st (we'll also be at Western PA, Tri-County @ Wooster, OH and South Western Ohio Bee School). Preorder and we can bring to the MOVBA show all of your spring woodenware and conainer needs (NO TAX AND NO SHIPPING). Also, this would be a good time to get that extractor you were looking for!

    Don't forget to order your 3 # package. We're looking to drop packages in Ripley and/or Parkersburg early April.
