    Welcome aboard. I am relatively new to this site also and sort of getting the flavor of the community. What club are you associated with if any?

    I have not joined a club yet. I got my first hive a couple weeks ago and am actively looking for a club as close to me as available. I look forward to getting as much knowledge as possible. I initially started researching Bee's because I wanted to better pollenate my mini orchard and pumpkin patch.

    My father was a Bee Keeper for a large Orchard when he was fresh out of the Navy in his twenties. Sure wish I had all his gear I used to play with down in the basement when I was younger.

    As soon as I figure out how to post pictures of my hive i will. I am used to posting pictures on forums that provide the hosting as well.

    Thought I would add a Photo of my hive hope it works and is the right size.

    I'm in Mason MI just South of Lansing. My wife is from the Grand Rapids area so we go there often.
