    Default Hello from Western Kentucky

    Hello! First year beekeeper here- what a great hobby!
    I have been lurking around the site for quite some time, and finally decided to register last weekend. Nice folks and so much good information and real-world experience!

    Hello and Welcome!

    I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a wealth of information about bees and beekeeping. I use the 'search' function extensively - it seems that for any topic/question I can think of, I can immediately find several previous threads discussing it.

    Are you connected with a local club? Kentucky has quite a few excellent clubs. Since much of beekeeping is "location specific", clubs are great places to find mentors and tap into the local beekeeping knowledge.

    Thanks for the replies and making a newbie feel welcome. Yes indypartridge, I have attended a couple of local meetings of the "Lake Barkley Beekeepers Association" and those folks made me feel welcome too. I mostly just sat and istened at the meetings, but learned a lot in a short hour or two. I also attended the Walter Kelley Field Day back earlier in the summer, and enjoyed that too. So far, in my 1st year, I will have to say that beekeepers by and large are the most friendly and helpful group of people that I've ever been around!
