May Meeting Dr James Wilkes from Bee Informed Project and Hive Tracks will be Presenting

Hello, Buncombe County Bee Club members,

I hope that your girls are healthy, doing well and your hives are expanding.

We will be having an interesting presenter for our May meeting. Dr. James Wilkes, who is, among other things, a professor of computer science at Appalachian State in Boone, is also the co-founder of the software company behind Hive Tracks. James is also a beekeeper with about 100 hives.  Dr. Wilkes is also the Information Technology Lead for the Bee Informed Partnership.

Topics of discussion will be Hive Tracks and the Bee Informed project.  I have attached links for both so you have time to check them out:

I found them both really interesting and I think in the long run they will help beekeepers around the US and hopefully the world manage bees for a long, long time.

Our workshop in May will be Capped Honey,what to look for and how to stop robbing.

Remember to come early if you want to get in on the workshop.

Meeting is May 1, 2017
Meeting time is 7:00 at Groce United Methodist Church, Tunnel Road, Asheville, NC

Mentoring and mini-workshop from 6:30 till 7:00

Hope to see you all there.
