BRBA offers two exclusive benefits for members paying an additional $10 fee:
- A collection of pneumatic tools and jigs for assembly of frames.
- A Dadant electric 6/3 extractor with all the supplies to decap, screen, and bottle honey.
If you have used these tools you know how valuable they are to your hive construction and honey harvesting. A change has been implemented that may impact your use of these tools. If you expect to use the tools in 2022, and have already paid a $5 membership fee you will need to pay an additional $10. Please reply to this email if you need to pay the additional fee. This additional fee is needed to cover the upkeep, maintenance, and possible repair/replacement of the equipment.
BRBA survives because of dedicated volunteers and you can become more involved! A shared workload promotes a stronger organization, but your BRBA involvement will be more personally rewarding. Please respond to this email, or to any of the advisory board, if you would like to assist.
