2019 ANNUAL FIELD DAY, GUEST SPEAKERS, POTLUCK, ELECTIONS & MUCH MORE!
Please, join us for our Annual Field Day to hear amazing and gifted speakers, chat and share with your fellow members, enjoy a delicious potluck....all surrounded by the beautiful grounds at our new SCBA Apiary located at Crown Point Ecology Center.
This is our largest yearly event with John Rose serving as our keynote speaker with the topic
"Beekeeping Ain't That Hard!" with hands-on look in the SCBA hives at our Crown Point Apiary.
Rob Gillam of Weller Bee Supply will discuss the importance of preparing for winter and will be demonstrating how to make a "candy board". Rob will have on hand many items that can be purchased on the day of the event to take home and ensure that you and your hives are well prepared for an Ohio Winter. He has been a favored speaker over many years and we welcome his return!
We also welcome John H. Hornickel of the Hornickel Law Firm LLC who will share on the transition from nonprofit status 501 c4 to 501 c3 as well as Trent Balduff, an apiary inspector, who will discuss his project to utilize software to gather information in support of beekeeping in the community.
The SCBA will be providing some delicious foods, utensils and paper plates, soda pop and water. We invite everyone to bring an item to share....last names A-L dessert and M-Z side-dish or salad. Feel free to bring your own drinks of
choice, no alcohol please, as well as a chair for the lawn. We will have a tent for all weather conditions.
Please, bring your bee jacket, suit, veil, and gloves as there will be plenty of time to get into the hives at the apiary. We will hold elections for our board positions during the Field Day.
There will be many exciting raffle items, baskets, 50-50, SCBA honey and SCBA hats, and games for an enjoyable day!
