March 2013 meeting
The March, 2013 meeting of Beekeepers of Shawangunk was truly energetic. Social time with refreshments commenced at 6:30 and the meeting started at 7:00 as planned. Many comments and questions were discussed and debated with an overall feeling of accomplishment. There were a number of displays and demonstrations on hand such as, package installation, bait hive demos and the new hive design called the “XT18” which stands for “Xtra Tall 18 inch”. Click on the gallery tab to see pictures of the XT18. The 2013 beekeeping season at the Saint Elmo Apiary will be the home of the XT18 in it’s first year of operation. Reports on it’s progress will be detailed on this site at the “blog” tab.
The BOS membership list is increasing faster than we imagined and now totals 30 members strong and growing. Much interest is being generated through the club website and it is obvious that BOS is an overnight success. There remains a lot to accomplish but we are confident that it is the energy of the members that will carry us forward. Learning and fun go hand in hand and both are abundant at Beekeepers of Shawangunk.
