Meeting will include discussion and voting on bylaw changes sent out to membership by email.

Topic of discussion:
Swarm catching, bee vacuums, swarm traps.
I am going to bring my bucket head bee vacuum (kind of funky) for show and tell and if any of you have bee vacuums you would like to show, please bring them. I particularly would like to see the store bought one Michele spoke of last meeting.
Also any techniques you use to trap swarms or lure them to the traps.
