Preparing for the Honey Show
September 27 @ 19:00 - 21:00
Mike and Judith Rowbottom of Harrogate and Ripon BKA
At our Annual Honey Show last November, we noticed that entry numbers were a little lower than in previous years, and wondered whether we could do more to help new and intermediate beekeepers to prepare for showing.
With this in mind, we have arranged a visit from Mike and Judith Rowbottom of Harrogate and Ripon BKA. They have been involved for more than ten years with the staging of their own association honey show, and are ideally placed to share their wisdom on the subject. They have also produced an extremely helpful little brochure, a copy of which is available here (PDF, 4MB).
The Schedule of entries for our own show is available here. Don’t start practising yet for Class 13, as the standard recipe is due for a rewrite!
Obviously both this talk and the Show itself are some way off, but please do put the date in your diary now, as this talk is additional to our regular programme and could easily be overlooked. And if you have recently extracted a rather pleasing batch of honey, set a few jars aside now – it could be a winner.
