Title: BeeFest 2022
Post by: BeeMaster2 on September 12, 2021, 07:58:48 pm
Judy and I are, as of right now, planning to have BeeFest 2022 on March 18, 19 and 20.
We are hoping that COVID-19 will burn its self out. Hopefully we will reach herd immunity.
Again you can camp out here on the farm. We have twice as much land as the last time for tents, campers and RVs. We also have 4 hotels within 20 miles of the farm including a brand new hotel, Hampton Inn and Suites.
If you are planning on coming, please reply on this thread so that we can plan on the amount of food needed.
If you?re driving here please bring chairs for your family to sit on.
If you are flying, we have about 9 bee suits available and several bee nets.
We have 2 ponds for fishing so bring your fishing gear.
Hope to see you all at BeeFest.
Judy and Jim Altmiller

I'll do my best to get there... not sure what the current Tyrant of the United States may do in the meantime so I can't guarantee anything.

I would like to come but I fear there will be another variant in FL to deal with.  We will see how it goes in Feb 22.

Glenna has a long term teaching substitute gig, but we will see when we get closer.
BeeFest 2019 gave me an incredible about of knowledge and confidence.

I might make it this year.  To early to say for sure but there is a chance that I'll have enough folks here to cover for me   :grin:

If you can PM me or post the location and airport I can start scouting stuff.

Same here fisteeler55. I am glad to see Jim and family are going full steam ahead with this project. I hope I can make it as well. I would thoroughly enjoy meeting you all there. Time will tell and we will see.

PS as I told my friend Brian (Acebird) and 2Sox in another topic, If they would buy a bee vac from me which would help pay my way lol.
Of course I was only kidding. I do not sell bee vacs. I will leave that to Robo...   :cool: :cheesy:

Brian If I can come I will bring it. Though a little different than Robos great vac, it does a super job also. I know you and 2Sox realize I'm kidding about selling you one. 😊 I have one and one only and no intentions of becoming a bee vac builder and salesman. lol
Though I have come to opinion that each beekeeper should have one. For those who do not, they don't know what they are missing. 😊

I am certainly planning on attending again!  I also have that weekend scheduled off with the band conveniently! 

Mind if I share with the Clay County Beekeeper Association?

I would like to financially help with food, if possible as well.
