Wednesday April 10 Update:
Assembly Demonstration Schedule:
Saturday April 13, 9-11:30 A.M.  and Sunday April 14, 10 A.M.-noon.
Woodenware: Some items are still on back order, but expected for weekend pickup.  For example, we were shorted a quantity of 8-frame equipment, so only some 8-frame orders are complete; folding veils, other stuff on back order.  Call Ken Nichols at 970-988-4416 if you need to know whether your order is complete.

An early order pickup opportunity will occur this coming Wednesday, April 10th from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM.  Inventorying of the items received has been completed, and volunteers are sorting the shipment into individual orders.  A few items were missing or back ordered, and should be on their way now.  Most, but not all orders will be complete on Wednesday evening, but should be complete for weekend pickup.  Order pickup has been set for Saturday and Sunday April 13 – 14, 7 AM to Noon each day.

We will use the same location we have used in the recent past – Hoff Construction, 1815 W 12th St  Loveland, CO 80537.  Contact Ken if these dates won’t work for you – email

Bee Box Drop Off
During Woodenware pickup hours, and again before the April 18th NCBA Meeting in Berthoud, we will be accepting empty bee package boxes.   The Association benefits when you recycle your old boxes!  You’ll free up the space, and the Association will be able to return them when picking up this year’s bees.
