The agenda for the July 20th, 2017 meeting

The agenda for the July 20th meeting
James Peirce has agreed to talk about Robbing issues and robbing screens.
Peter Summers (From “The Honey Stop”) will talk about Honey Harvesting.  When, how, why to harvest honey from your hives.  What to look for, ways to take the frames off your hives.  Different ways to harvest your honey and places to do it if you want help.
James Peirce will also put on another “Workshop on making Robbing screens”.  This will be done on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 9:30 am at his home.  His home address is:   3160 South 2750 East, Salt Lake City, Utah  84109.  contact Kari 801-631-3189 if you have questions. The cost will be $5.00 per robbing screen.
Important things to know for the workshop:
-Measurement, end to end of their bottom entrance.  (Otherwise, will only build one of the standard entrance width which would work for most people).
I know this is the holiday weekend, but it is the best time to do this workshop following our meeting.
