Thursday Nov 24rd, 2022, 7 to 9 pm


Topics:
1) Club business and announcements

2) Information on The Canadian Bee Gut Project

3) Mead Making at Home-  As a fun way to wrap up the year and maybe give you a project for the winter months, we are going to talk about Mead making at home. A local Homebrew store owner will discuss the principles of making mead and the equipment needed. Then club members Bruce & JoJo Richardson and Albert DeVries will share their favourite recipes and tips. Bring your favourite mead recipe to share with the group!

4) Extracting Hack- using a Hop Spider Filter- there was an article about this in the most recent OBJ. We will have the filter at the meeting so you can check it out. 

5) Honey Tins- does anyone else collect honey tins? My collection keeps growing so I thought I would bring it to show you. If you have an interesting tin or other beekeeping related artifact/collection bring it in or send me a picture.

6) Samples and Door Prize I've just returned from the OBA AGM & conference in Kingston. There I was able to connect with some future speakers and get ideas from other local bee associations. I was also sent back with some samples for you guys and some promotional items that we can use as meeting door prizes!
