- September meeting review:
- Victoria group went very well; want to scope out a place for winter meetings
- Oak Bay/Gordon Head met near United Church; 6 attendees; went over mite treatments
- Saanich: 9 people total – inexperienced to experienced; variety of topics (honey, mites, preparing for winter)
- Esquimalt/Vic West: 7-8 people; setup for winter; mite treatments; one person would like to know who has bees in his area (to ensure mite treatment is occurring) – privacy concern; ministry has the info for those who have complied with regulation; also concern about AFB – should be checking regardless, not because there is an outbreak in your area
- Westshore: 9 people total – spoke about outyard, treatment for mites, feeding heavy syrup, wasp management
- Small groups or club wide for next meeting?
- Some people have mentioned they like the small meetings.
- Divide meetings by experience level? Beginner/Intermediate concurrently?
- Need to confirm 2 people for financial statement review according to bylaws at Oct. meeting, but can be done by email.
- Conclusion – repeat small groups for October and have 1 last large group meeting for November.
- Will watch weather forecast for meeting time in October. Likely will be on weekend due to early darkness on weekdays.
- People did well this year.
- Sandcut also did well.
- Bill did 50lbs/hive. Similar numbers have been heard from other members.
- Meeting adjourned 8:10pm.
