Saturday July 16 at 11am

Place:  Home of Scott Malkasian, Princeton, MA

Program:  WCBA picnic and smoker contest


This meeting is our annual picnic where Scott Malkasian and Brian Faucher graciously provide burgers, hot dogs, rolls, condiments and drinks. We ask you, our members, to bring a variety of salads, side dishes and desserts. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy this lavish feast, then relax and chat with your fellow beekeepers before the Annual Smoker Contest. Who will win bragging rights for the year and two tickets to the Thanksgiving Banquet? Following the contest, Scott will lead the hive opening and talk about his management style and his many hive experiments. There will also be a demonstration on honey extraction in the cellar of Scott's ongoing project, a log cabin mansion. It is always fun to take the annual tour and see what Scott has accomplished over the past year. Looking out at Mount Wachusett, the view from the top floor is spectacular.

We encourage all our members to join us so that the senior members can get to know the new members as there is plenty of opportunity to socialize at this meeting. Remember, it starts early, 11:00 AM -- you'll want to get in line before Ken for the burgers and dogs!!

Bring your smoker and favorite fuel to take part in the smoker contest -- you could win!
