    Reminder Has 2009

    July 09, 2009

    Description:
    The Heartland Apicultural Society (HAS) will host its annual summer conference July 9-11 (Thursday – Saturday) at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio (west of Cleveland). This annual event is a three-day beekeeping educational conference with some of the top speakers from the United States. This event will include keynote talks by leading apiculture researchers and educators, classroom sessions, lab sessions, and hands-on sessions in the apiary. This year a queen rearing mini-course will be part of the program. In addition there will be many classes of interest for all levels of beekeeping expertise, including basic beginning beekeeping sessions for those new to beekeeping. Apiary sessions will include queen rearing mini-course sessions, beginning beekeeping sessions & many other sessions to build your beekeeping skill level & knowledge. And as in past years, there will be a trade show with many of the nation’s beekeeping supply companies and regional vendors present. In the evenings there will be entertainment and opportunities to get to know your fellow beekeepers better.

    It's been up for several days now, but if you weren't aware, you may now register for HAS.

    Gripe: my boss has scheduled a special training course for the 2nd week of July, forcing me to cancel my plans to attend. Rats!

    Here we are at Oberlin Ohio at the HAS convention. Met with Michael Bush, Dr. Larry Conner and many others at registration. Looks like another great program with many breakout sessions. It is going to be tough choosing what classes we want to attend Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    HAS 2009 was a great meet. 40 different classes from beginning to expert to choose from. The only problem was not being able to attend all of them and the rain storm Saturday morning. The food was good and the learning experance was great. We met many old friends and made many new friends. The attendance was lower than normal but the ones not attending missed a great meeting. The last attendance I saw Saturday was 255. We had many good speakers and learned a lot. The Ice cream social Friday was enjoyed by all and there was much talk about bees during the event.
    There were many venders there and I thank them for attending.

    As a brand new beekeeper this was such a terrific opportunity. In my backyard! It was great, the selection of classes and the wonderful people. I can't thank everyone enough. My friends in town that have offices in the King building, where the majority of the classes where held, mentioned how nice the beekeepers were.
    The number of choices each day for classes made me wish the day was longer so I could attend more. I missed one morning class just because I had so much fun chatting with people in the vendor area.
    Thank you all so much.
