    Kirk (A.k.a. Angelwood) here.
    I am in Central Indiana near West Lafayette, Indiana.
    This is my first year. My wife & I are ready and rarin' to go. The hive is built, the tools acquired, and the site located. Now we're waiting for our first nuc to arrive sometime in April. After that...I am SURE we'll be learning a great deal as quickly as we are able to soak it in. The girls will have a lot to teach us.

    I am looking forward to the exchanges here. Looks like an amiable and informed group!

    Hi Kirk,

    West Lafayette, huh? We usually have our State Beekeeper's summer meeting there at the Purdue bee yards - always a great time - but we're skipping this summer since both the Ass'n and Purdue are heavily involved with the Heartland Apicultural Society conference in Vincennes (http://www.heartlandbees.com).

    There's a West Central Beekeeper's club up your way. I know they hold at least one spring meeting at Purdue. Contact person is Mike Schluttenhofer (mschluttenhofer-at-fbibuildings.com). (Mike's daughter, Lisa, was the 2010 American Honey Queen.)

    If there's anything I can do to help, let me know,
    Mark
    (Brown County)
