NOTE: The NW 36th St bridge over I-44 is OPEN again.

TOPICS:

The main topic will be presented by Steven Coy, a second-generation commercial beekeeper and Russian queen breeder (among other things).
 
His topic for the evening will be “What Puts the Buzz in Coy Bee Company”.
 
Mr Coy will also be the primary speaker for the OSBA Fall Meeting Saturday 10/28. Saturday morning his topic is “Commercial Beekeeping with Russian Bees”. Saturday afternoon his topic is “An Overview of the Russian Honeybee Breeders Association”. Please see the OSBA website (okbees.org) for more information about Mr Coy and the Saturday meeting.

As usual, guests and/or new members are welcome!

Please bring a snack to share with others during the break/social portion of the evening. This has NOT been well supported lately. COBA provides beverages.

Members are invited to bring a bee-related item for the door prize drawing.

FUTURE EVENTS:

There is never a November meeting (because it would fall on Thanksgiving).

The December meeting is open only to dues-paid COBA members, and is really a Christmas Party (with lots of good door prizes). It will be held on Thursday, December 21, at 7:00 PM.

The January meeting will include election of officers for 2018. All positions (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer) are needed, since none of the incumbents will be running for their current positions.
