My State [West Virginia] will be hosting HAS 2008 July 10-12 at Marshall University. I'm going to HAS 2007 in Kentucky a few days early to learn about set-up and generally help out.
HAS is always a terrific meeting for the small beekeeper. Lots of great seminars, hands-on classes in the beeyard, all at a very low cost.
I'll see you there & invite everyone to join us in Huntington, WV in 2008.

The first day at HAS in Kentucky went well. During lunch construction people working on the building set off the fire alarm. Most missed the after lunch classes because of the fire alarm and late lunches.
I did see and talk to many friends and saw Mike Bush and went to 2 of the lectures he gave.
It's fun seeing and talking to all the beekeepers and learning how they are doing things.
A lot of no chemical use is stressed along with how to not stress the bees.

Like Clinton, I am enjoying the meeting very much. It was interesting to see & hear Michael Bush in person...he is excellent! Dann Purvis was going off on the queen rearing world & their wrong-headedness. It was fun to listen to him. The whole conference has been very useful so far. Off to another day of classes! -Danno

Second day at HAS was also great. Classes were a learning experance for all even thou all who did the bee yard in the morning got rained on.(I have never worked with such calm & gentle bees during a storm in my life.) Got to get some of those queens from Robin Mountain.
We have had good food and a great time talking with old and new friends about beekeeping and we are looking forward to the next day and the 08 HAS meeting.
I feel of all the meetings I go to this is the best and the people attending are the best.

Rob Mountain's bees are nice to work with for sure! He worked at Weaver's & Strachan's & is VERY knowledgeable about queen raising. He was re-elected as Chair of HAS so he will be working with us to bring it to Huntington, WV next year from July 10-12 at Marshall University. Mark your calendars now & bee sure to attend! -Danno

The 2007 HAS meeting has ended. We had over 400 Beekeepers there from a lot of different states and 2 from the Virgin Islands. There were many different classes/lectures/discussions. All had fun even though we had a fire drill during lunch Friday. Saw many friends and made many more. Those that were there and were members of BeeSource wrote beesource below their name and we were asked about the website. I did invite many to come on and see what we do here and if they were interested to please join us.

It was a great conference covering subjects from Beginner to Experienced Beekeeping, queen raising, cooking, bee biology, If it had to do with beekeeping, I think there was at least one presentation on it.

There was 5 one hour class sessions Thursday and Friday and 4 class sessions today. Each session had 10 presenters in a class room setting or in the field. The list of presenters was a who’ who of beekeeping, including several from our own Beesource.com.

This HAS was a great learning experience and well worth the minimal cost to go. The only glitches I noticed were not caused by HAS.

If you haven’t been to a HAS conference you need to go to the next one at Marshall University in Huntington WV. If you have been to HAS you still need to go. Huntington is on Interstate 64 and Marshall is just a little over 2 miles off of the Interstate. It is a beautiful campus, Modern facilities, nice and level with everything close together.

It was a pleasure to sit in several Mike Bush’s presentations
