I've a friend that would like to attend one of his 2 day classes, I'm leery, as it's $299.00, no refund if you cancel up to 3 weeks before the class. Has anyone here gone to one of his weekend classes, is it worth it? How many are usually in these classes, 20, 30?

TIA

Just read his site, articles by him and about him, watch the vids, and read the book "Keeping bees with a smile" (if want to buy that; the original in Russian is a free PDF).
That will will get you the same material and at your own pace.

Crucial part - his results are reproducible at his location only as he is plugged into the local feral population.

I considered going.
but then discovered that "room and board" + Gas took the trip to a place I felt was to pricy.
I instead bough his 3 most popular books, IMO that and a couple of his Utubes took me close to where the onsite boot camp would for < 25% of the cost

If Money in not an issue then place it in the entertainment column and go. Keep in mind his DR is in forestry and has some of that slant. If you are a visual learner it would be a good trip.

I gained a lot of info from just the book "Keeping Bees With A Smile". The class might be helpful for a begginer like me, but you could also just read and watch his online stuff. :)
