    North Florida Master Beekeeper Program, FSBA, Chipley Oct 31 - Nov 2

    Hey Guys!

    I'm getting everything together for the Fall meeting (Oct 31st in Chipley). AS soon as a I get the flyer done, registration will be open.

    Also - we will be giving out notes for each class this time, so there will be a small fee for a "sit-in" and study - which is different than previous years. And an additional $10 fee for on-site registration.

    The MBP is at the same location and the day before the 93rd Annual FSBA Fall Convention "Headin' Back to the Country" . We encourage everyone to make a beekeeping weekend and attend all that there is to offer over these three days. Please NOTE: there are separate registration forms and fees!

    UF MBP: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honeybee/extension/master_beekeeper.shtml
    I will be sending another email in a few days with the link to the MBP flyer and registration - it is not open yet.

    Thanks! Look forward to seeing your pictures! And yes, you get photo credit!

    Correction, this is not part of the Florida Bee College. There is plenty to learn and do the three days.
    The Florida State Beekeepers Association holds its 93rd convention, October 31 and November 1 in Chipley, FL. See details at http://floridabeekeepers.org
    Note that following the formal convention will be the Third Annual Beekeepers Field Day and Trade Show. The registration form for the
    convention includes the trade show "Saturday Workshop" as part of its package.

    Hey Folks,

    The Honey Bee Research and Extension lab is pleased to announce the Fall Master Beekeeper Program (MBP) Training and Exams, on October 31[SUP]st[/SUP] at the Washington County Extension Office in Chipley Fl. New beekeepers are welcome to register and test at the Apprentice Level; a passing score grants entry the MBP (please see link below for additional requirements). MBP Participants are welcome to register and test for program advancement and additional training.

    There will be a lot happening at the Washington Co. Ext. Office over the three days, we highly encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

    This is the first time UF’s Master Beekeeper Program http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/honeybee/extension/master_beekeeper.shtml
    the FSBA Convention, http://www.floridabeekeepers.org/pdf/93rdAnnualFSBAconventionRegistration.pdf
    Panhandle’s Beekeeper Field Day & Trade Show ,(http://floridabeekeepers.org/pdf/BeekeepersField%20DayTradeShow110213.pdf)
    are joining together!

    Following the MBP training & exams on Thursday, we will have an exam review with Dr. Jamie Ellis, then all are welcome to join the Thursday Evening FSBA Social (Fish Fry), which kicks off the 93[SUP]rd[/SUP] Annual FSBA Convention. Friday Nov 1[SUP]st[/SUP] is the actual Convention, filled with educational seminars and workshops, and later that evening we will award the MBP Certificates at the Friday night Banquet. Saturday’s Trade Show is filled with hands on learning inside the hive and is brought to you by your IFAS Extension Agents in NW Florida.

    Florida truly has the most extensive and well-connected community of beekeepers in the country, don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn, grow, and network with Florida’s finest beekeepers, researchers, inspectors and county agents.

    Please note, there are separate registrations required for the Master Beekeeper Program (Thursday only) and for the remaining events over the weekend – please see links above.

    **Please also feel free to pass this message along using email forwarding, social media, web posting, etc. Thanks for the support!!**

    We hope to see you there!!

    Beekeepers!

    We have plenty of room to test for the Advanced and Master Levels at this week’s MBP training in Chipley (Washington Co – the panhandle). I have the BRAND NEW copy of the MBP Manual to hand out, and packets for everyone! BY popular demand, I compiled all the lectures and material into a “resource manual” for everyone to take home. I’ve got new forms and all the lectures are spiffed up too. It’s a great time to take a re-test or get a refresher lesson for those who test in March.
    I will be sending another email and updating the website, as soon as the manual is published on EDIS.

    Hope to see you there.

    I'd love to attend[​IMG], except for the commute [​IMG]!
    Michigan (The State) and MSU seem to have forgotten the Honeybee![​IMG]
