EAS 2009  August 3-7, 2009
Holiday Valley Resort, Ellicottville, NY

EAS 2009 Logo


This year we will be utilizing several methods to get the registration materials to you! We will use the traditional mailing of information in the Spring and Summer issues of the EAS Journal, an on line version you can download, print and return and an on line form that can be filled out and sent via the web to instantly register yourself using your credit card!

Registration options:

  • On Line Registration is no longer available. Your only choice at this time is to print out a Downloadable Registration Form and bring it with you to the conference. Note that meals, and special event availability can no longer be guaranteed. Contact Holiday Valley Resort directly for hotel reservations.
  • Downloadable Registration Form to download, print and bring with you to the conference.
    The downloadable registration form is a PDF document - you will need the Acrobat Reader to display, and print this form. Most browsers already have this set up for you.
  • The old-fashioned way: See the Spring or Summer EAS Journals for registration forms to complete and mail in.

NOTE: Do NOT mail in your registration form because we may not receive it in time before we leave for the meeting. Just bring the form with you. However, realize that dorm rooms, events and meals are no longer guaranteed.

HOLIDAY VALLEY – You will need to make your hotel reservations with Holiday Valley on your own. You will have the option of purchasing breakfast tickets when you reserve your room. Be sure and mention you are with EAS and the beekeepers when you call. If you are staying at a different hotel, breakfast will be on your own. Breakfast is not a part of your EAS Registration fee. Please visit www.holidayvalley.com to learn more about the facilities at Holiday Valley. Or visit www.ellicottvilleny.com to see what other options are available. There are several hotels, B&Bs and camping options close by.

MEALS – Lunch is included in your EAS registration fee and you will need to make sure you have your name tag each day to identify you. That is what will get you lunch – your name tag. This starts Monday with Short Course. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night dinner is on your own. We encourage you to explore the area. There are many restaurants to choose from in Ellicottville and the surrounding area.

SPECIAL EVENTS – Wednesday Night – You don’t want to miss this one. Andy Card and his crew at Merrimack Valley Apiaries has graciously agreed to host a pig roast for us at their site, which is only a few minutes away from Holiday Valley. We will have a pig roast and chicken and all of the fixins. There will be beer and soda furnished with the purchase of your meal. And we’ll have some music for entertainment. It will be a fun night.

Thursday Night BBQ – Our traditional night of food and fun will take place onsite at Holiday Valley. We have not chosen the final menu yet, but it will be prepared by Holiday Valley Chefs. Our auction will be held after the BBQ.

Friday Night Banquet – This will be our traditional buffet. Jim Tew of Ohio is our banquet speaker. Life Member, Master Beekeeper, Divelbiss and Honey Show awards will be presented.
