2016-03-24 March COBA meeting

REMINDER: COBA Meeting – Thursday March 24th, 7:00-9:00 PM

Will Rogers Gardens Exhibition Center, 3400 NW 36th St, Oklahoma City OK, 73112

Please bring a snack to share, and maybe a bee-related item for the door prizes.

Guests are welcome.

Topics: Tommy Thornton will be talking about how to make splits. (Divide a colony/hive into multiple colonies/hives.) Tommy was 2008 Oklahoma Beekeeper of the Year, a past officer of OSBA and COBA, a past COBA instructor, owner of Beekeeping Etc & Bucko Gloves, and used to have 300 hives.

UPDATE 3/24:

Unfortunately, circumstances have changed, and Beekeeping Etc will NOT be setting up a merchandise table at the meeting tonight. If there is something you want them to bring, call them and they can still do that. Again, Beekeeping Etc # is 405-600-7200.

REMINDER: March 12 & 19 COBA Beginning Beekeeping Class

The next COBA-sponsored Beginning Beekeeping class will be October 8 & 15, 2016.
