If you need a veil, you might call Ken Hayes at Hayes Honey Farm south of Albuquerque. I'm sorry I can't be of more help but as you can imagine we have our hands full planning for Saturday. See you then!

Any tips on where my friend and I could pick one up before Saturday?

Hi Angie, we're urging everyone to PLEASE bring their own veils. If anyone has extras, please bring them to share. 

Comment by Angie Kelic on April 17, 2012 at 5:16pm

I'll have one more person with me, are there veils we can borrow?

My husband, Nathan, will also be attending with me. Thanks.

Just a note (so we can track all this in one place) to Jessie and I that Marty Carr is also going to attend.

I'll be there with one more person, neither of us have veils.

I RSVP'd a week or so ago. I'm really looking forward to my first ABQ Beeks event.
