    What is the cost of general admission to EAS?

    My wife actually said we could go for one of the days as long as the admission is inexpensive (I'm not about to tell her that if we go I'm bound to end up buying a ton of stuff there).

    Oh man... I thought that was just to take the classes... too bad. I probably can't get my wife to agree to that...

    Looks like an awesome meeting, but it's definitely too expensive for us to go BB.

    Yeah, and I just realized you can't even go for just one day on Sun. Mon. or Tues... Monday was going to be my only chance at going at all... too bad. Some other year perhaps. Oh well, I can really put the money to better use anyway... I need to build 90 hive boxes, buy and assemble 448 frames, build 7 4-way pallets, build 28 top covers, and possibly even get a decent powered extractor over the next year... I wonder if my wife even realizes that I'm going to hit up our bank account for close to $4,000 dollars this year... I wonder how many nights I'll have to sleep on the couch...

    Ben you had better take the course at UT and sign up for the TAEP grant money, they will pay out up to 50% on all of that and the bees.

    It is closed for this year but should go again next year. I wold tell you to call the ag extension agent for Knox county but he is worthless. If you want I will get you added to the Loudon County email list.

    Yeah, I couldn't have qualified for TAEP this year anyway though, didn't meet the years of experience requirements. Next year I will though... so yeah, I'll definately want to do that. Go ahead and add me to the loudon county email list and I'll try to keep in touch with Mike as well... I also need to take the inspector's class and get certified as an inspector so that I can certify my own hives for movement within the state... though I think I'll still have to pay another inspector if moving them across state lines.

    Can do, need your email addy to give to the extension agent, John Goddard.

    Carla from KCBA emailed me about the inspectors class also, if you hear anything else about it let me know and vise versa.

    Best email to reach me at is ben@bens-bees.com I have rules set up to forward copies to every other email address I have as well as to push it to my cell phone ( I certainly didn't want to miss any swarm calls due to not checking email ).
