What I found most appealing about EAS is that one can bounce back and forth between the beginner and advanced tracks, depending on what one finds interesting. And the time in the apiary and lab - that is really a treat and sets EAS apart from most state meetings.  EAS is probably the only bee meeting where one can choose among several lectures, instruction in the apiary or lab -- or even in the kitchen -- at any given time, depending on one's interests.   I think the average beekeeper has no idea of the scope of concurrent educational opportunities from which to choose.   It's a fabulous program!
