Adair Outdoor Recreational Center, South Creek Rd., Laurens, SC. There will be classroom and in-hive instruction. Cost: $75 per person or $85 for two FAMILY members, ie, Couples, Parent/Child, etc - this will include classroom material, one workbook, and a thumb drive that will have a three-volume text for reference. The class size will be limited to 12-15 students to provide for personalized instruction. Equipment: If you have a veil, gloves and jacket, please bring them. There will be gloves and veils to loan for those that do not own any. PLEASE BRING YOUR SMOKER IF YOU HAVE ONE. This will be a great time to learn the correct way to light and keep your smoker lit. A laptop or tablet is optional. Please dress accordingly. you will need to wear closed shoes for safety. If you do not have a bee jacket, consider bringing a long sleeve shirt. I highly recommend dressing or bringing outer clothes to put on for safety during the bee yard segments of the class. Please note that this DOES NOT INCLUDE LUNCH. Please bring a packed lunch and beverage bottled water and coffee will be provided. Contact Ed Coleman at 864-942-7564 to register or for more information.
