Hello from Texas, United States. Looking to meet bee folks during vacation closeby St. Andrews in July 2015.
It'll be difficult to set up a calendar for a year away but maybe I'll get lucky to go to a honeybee club meeting or seminar or apiary during that time. I'm going to the 2015 British Open and would like to mix bees with golf:).
Thx for your help.

Howday Gary!

The Fife Beekeepers Association (http://www.fifebeekeepers.co.uk/)has several members around St Andrews and I'm sure that you'll find them welcoming. Janice (http://www.scottishbeekeepers.org.uk/About/LocalAssociations.aspx) herself (the secretary) lives close to St Andrews. Last I heard she was having computer trouble, so I'll send you another possible contact by private message.

Howdy:).....thot I'd spare you the Texan talk on my first post:)...but since yall brot it up:)
Many thanks for yall's help....I'll contact these folks.....looking forward to hopefully getting together with bee people when I come in town.
Bee info: I have built two topbar hives...1st is beeactive. Hoping to split it into other topbar soon. Also building a russian hive: long like a topbar hive but uses deep 'lang' frames.

Dang! I spelled Howdy wrong ...

Fife has its top-bar enthusiasts too. The clash of cultures between the guy with the golf attire and the wide-brimmed cowboy hat, and the local top-bar folk with their low footprint living would be worth watching!

There's a chance that your visit might coincide with one of their apiary visits. I'm sure someone would be willing to take you along.
