GGLBA 2023 FIELD DAY AND CLUB MEETING SATURDAY JUN 10th AT 12:00 PM
Continue your beekeeping education with hands-on demonstrations showing how to light a smoker, inspecting a hive, finding the queen, splitting a hive, and more.
Those wanting to watch the hive demonstrations must wear their veil and gloves to the hive area.
To participate in the smoker lighting contest, bring your smoker, your favorite fuel, and a means to light it (torch, lighter, matches…). Contestants will be judged on ease of lighting, the quality of the smoke, and h…ow long your smoker keeps going.
The event will begin at noon with a carry-in meal. GGLBA will provide sandwiches, table service, and bottled water. Members are asked to bring lawn chairs and a side dish to share.
See you there!
We will be having a bee meeting / field day on Saturday June 10th starting at noon and running until 3 to 4 pm at the Mercer County Sportsmen’s Club on 703 across from the old Carter lumber.
