SABA Seminar

SABA Seminar

Please join us Saturday April 9, 2016,   9 am – 5 pm at the HVCC TEC-SMART facility at 345 Hermes Rd. in Malta NY

The Speakers:

Dewey Caron, Allen Hayes, Grai Rice & Chris Harp

Each speaker will give two presentations.  Presentations will run sequentially.

TEC SMART is a lovely facility designed for classes and conferences.  Our lectures, lunch, vendor booths and Bee-Cup fundraiser will all be in one building, all on the first floor.  It is easy to get to, close to exit 12 of  I-87. 

Seminar Cost: $ 45, or $ 35 for current SABA members.  Last year we had almost a full house, and it may be necessary this year to take only preregistered people (maybe no walk-ins).

A SABA membership runs the calendar year, and costs $15 for one year, $60 for 5 years, $150 for Life.

Box Lunch from Panera Bread:  $12.  (½ sandwich, side salad, big cookie, chips, drink. Vegetarian lunches will be available.) You must  pre-order to get a Panera Bread box lunch.  You may instead bring a bag lunch, use the vending machines, or drive 1.5 miles to a diner, KFC, Subway, Taco Bell, McDonald's, Hannaford, etc.  We will have a 1 hour lunch break.

Bee-Cup Auction:  Many donations will be given away in a fundraiser for SABA.  This fundraiser helps support the club by bringing in guest speakers, and it also supplements the Wolf-Lounsbury Youth Beekeeper Award, an annual award of a new hive, bees and gear, with instruction, given to a youth of Middle or High School age.

Vendors:  Multiple major beekeeping suppliers will have booths at the Seminar. You may make pre-orders.

Dinner with speakers: On Friday April 8, you can join speakers for dinner in Ballston Lake NY.  Please send a deposit of $38 per person if you will attend.
