I'm looking forward to meeting new people and getting more involved in the local beekeeping community. I've been on this site many times in the past couple of years and this site has been an invaluable resource. Just recently I've decided to slow my work life down somewhat and get more involved with things I love (my wife/daughters, and my bees..I guess in that order LOL) My daughters are both at the age where they want to be involved with beekeeping as well so it's been a great way for us to get involved as a family. I've decided to increase my hives and actually start a "hosting" program in my area...haven't really figured that out yet but I have placed hives in some friends' yards. I'm looking forward to actually being a participant in this forum as opposed to just reading the info.
