    Default WAS Conference 2012

    Message from the President

    Welcome to 2012! We are moving forward with details for the conference,
    and have made a change in venue due to the larger estimated size of the
    joint conference with the Washington State Beekeepers Association.

    The dates are October 4th thru October 7th and the venue is now at the
    Embassy Suites Hotel-Seattle Tacoma International Airport, 15920 West
    Valley Highway, Seattle, Washington, 98188
    Tel: 1-425-227-8844 Fax: 1-425-227-9567. More information will be posted
    soon, so keep checking the WAS website for updates.

    This conference will focus on Sustainable Colony Health and we are still
    developing the conference speaker list. If there is someone you would
    especially like to hear, let us know and we
    will see what we can do about bringing them in.

    Stay tuned for more details. We look forward to seeing you in October!

    Jim Smith, President

    note: The hotel is located north of the airport, within easy
    access of most of Seattle's main attractions. There is an airport shuttle
    so a car will be necessary only if you plan on playing tourist. Some of
    the attractions: Westfield Southcenter Mall - 0.7 mi, Starfire Sports
    Complex - 0.8 mi, Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum - 2.3 mi, Emerald Downs
    Racecourse - 9 mi, Pike Place Market - 11.3 mi, Space Needle - 12.2 mi,
    Museum of Glass - 16.7 mi.

    See www.embassysuitestukwila.roomstays.com for more information. Remember
    to mention the WAS conference when booking your room, and that most
    hotels do not honor discounted rates if you book on the internet. Call
    them. Booking deadlines will be announced in the May issue of this
    journal.

    What is the fee for the conference? What is the deadline? Could you please post a tentative speaker schedule? As far as sustainable beekeeping, I suggest you might try to engage Mr. Michael Bush.

    What is the "WA Honey Queen"?

    Dr. Susan Cobey is the queen of I.I. queen rearing instructors, (chuckle) but they might be talking about her line of New World Carniolan honeybees and/or queens.
