    Default Newer Beek from Mo

    Well lets see, I have had a hive before for about 3 years but they got taken over by mites. I am currently in the navy stationed in Japan, but I am wanting to get back into bee keeping when I get back to the states. I am possibly going to wind up in Wyoming when I get back to the states. Just looking to increase my knowledge while I am unable to have my own hive out here, also wanting to build my own equipment when I get back into it. Well I guess thats about all about me, if there are any questions just let me know.

    EMBA has a pretty good forum that I think is free. They charge like $10 for individual membership or $15 for family. Three River’s membership is free, but their website is under construction. Three Rivers is new, but a good group. EMBA is more formal with their meets. Three Rivers is more loosely organized. EMBA has better classes. Three Rivers is more flexible with their meeting and the time they have the building for, so you can hang out a talk more. I go to Three Rivers more then EMBA, mainly because it is easier for me to get to. Missouri State Beekeepers has an OK website & forum, but no one uses it much. The State group only meets twice per year. I belong to all three. The state site is:

    Troy, MO is at the intersection of Hwy 61 & Hwy 47. The eastern end of Hwy 47 ends at the intersection of Hwy 47 & Hwy 79 in Winfield, MO.

    Speaking of which does anyone know of any beeks that are over on this side of the pond(Japan) Preferably around the Yokosuka area? I am on the main land on a ship, so this is just a glorified port visit for us.
