    Default Tulsa, OK, March 31 - April 1, 2017 -- Big Bee Buzz

    The Northeast Oklahoma Beekeepers Association will present the Big Bee Buzz on the evening of March 31 and all day April 1, 2017 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Speakers will include Dr. Marion Ellis, Phil Craft, Katie Lee, Megan Mahoney, and Beth Conrey. The cost is only $35.00.

    We are expanding the event this year by having two speakers going much of the time. You will be able to pick which speaker and topic you want to hear for 6 out of 9 sessions.


    To accommodate this expansion, we have moved to a new location, Venue68, which is located at 6910 S. 101st E. Ave, Tulsa, OK 74134.

    This year, meals will not be included in the price, but food will be available for separate purchase and there are lots of places to eat close by.

    More information and online registration will soon be available at NEOBA.org. I will post the actual speaker schedule and topics when I have it all set.

    Online registration is now up and running at NEOBA.org. Although pre-registration is not required, we encourage you to do so. Cost is only $35.00, which is a steal.

    We have had one change in the speakers. Megan Mahoney had a work conflict, so she will not be able to make it this year. Instead, Solomon Parker will be a speaker.

    The schedule for the event is as follows:

    This here is what is called a shameless bump of this thread. However, I wanted to send a reminder about this event. You can register online at NEOBA.org. While we prefer that you pre-register, you can also pay at the door. Send me a PM if you have any questions.
