Today I would like to bring your attention to the new and improved BIG MONEY HONEY contest. The CSBA has always had a honey contest but this year’s will be the “Daddy of them All” with a top prize of $300 being awarded! In addition to bragging rights and the traveling trophy with your name engraved, (and the $300), we will be presenting this year’s champion with a handsome carved wooden plaque to display at their honey booth or in their home. A picture of the wooden plaque is attached. The runner-up will take home $200 and the third prize winner $100. An entry form is attached. Entry forms may also be found at the CSBA website and hard copies will be available at the door.

About

 

The Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association (NCBA) is an organization of both hobbyist and commercial beekeepers. We exist to provide a forum for education in beekeeping and for exchange of ideas and experiences. We also enjoy some ability to provide savings in equipment and bees by purchasing as a group. We are affiliated with the Colorado Beekeepers Association.We meet once a month with the above objectives in mind. Each meeting strives to discuss one or two subjects of interest in beekeeping. Whenever possible we will discuss beekeeping and hive maintenance activities appropriate for the next month. We also like to provide time for members to discuss beekeeping among themselves.Once a year, usually around January, we conduct a multisession beginning beekeeping class. On completion of the class, we offer you the opportunity to join the association, to order beekeeping equipment and bees, and we offer you a mentor to help you get off to a good start.If you have any interest in keeping bees, we encourage you to join us. We believe joining a beekeeping association such as ours is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to start beekeeping. By joining now you will receive our news letter as well as notification of upcoming classes and meetings. Dues are modest and affiliates members with the Colorado Beekeepers Association.
