2006 EAS Short Course and Conference
Greetings from Georgia
The University of Georgia Honey Bee Lab, Georgia Beekeepers Association, and Young Harris College invite you to the 51st annual short course and conference at Young Harris College, July 31st – August 4th 2006. Young Harris College is a small, private college located in the picturesque Appalachian mountains of north Georgia. This mountainous region is breathtaking with green valleys, crystal clear streams, lakes and national forests. For the nature buff, there are plenty of outdoor activities including hiking, camping, boating, fishing, and horse back riding. For those who prefer the inside, there are plenty of galleries, gift and antique shops, wineries and specialty cloths stores. If you want to be within feet of the meeting, there are dorms located directly on campus or if you want a lakeside/streamside/mountainside view, they’re available. Listed in the accommodation section are B&B’s, cabins and campgrounds that I think you will find very enchanting and also come highly recommended. For your additional lodging/recreational needs the websites for Towns and Union County Chamber of Commerce are listed as well.
The conference and short course will host numerous well known speakers from around the state, country, and world. It’s a veritable Who’s Who of beekeeping. Check out our list of speakers, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
We plan to entertain you with our finest southern manner and fill you to the gills with the best home-style, southern cuisine this side of the Mississippi.
All us Georgians are excited to finally introduce our region to you Yankees. So, if you want to experience a thrilling mix of hundreds of beekeepers, diverse workshops and lectures, huge trade show, Honey Show, Master Beekeeper program, Honey Exchange, and more, this is your chance!
Looking forward to seeing ya’ll this year.
