Extractaganza is the BGSV's annual event that we hold In Lieu of the July membership meeting. It’s also the 12th anniversary of our Guild’s founding. Harvesting honey can be a hot, sticky and tedious task. Everyone knows that many hands make for light work, so every July, Guild members, with their families and friends, get together and bring in their honey harvest while enjoying an indoor picnic. New beekeepers who have not extracted honey before get to see how it is done and gain hands-on experience. If you have honey to spin, bring it! If you don’t have any, come along anyway and get your hands sticky learning how to uncap and extract honey.
So come join us at the Deep Creek Ruritan Club on July 20th at 200 Luray Street Chesapeake, VA at 9 AM sharp. All Guild members, our families and friends are invited. Lunch will be served at 11:30 AM, the Guild will provide the chicken and drinks. Please bring your favorite dessert or side dish to share. We ask that you RSVP with how many guests you will be bringing so that we can adequately plan for the day. And please let us know how many supers (boxes of frames) you will be extracting too! After lunch, at 1:00 we open the doors to the public, and continue to extract honey until the last frame of honey is spun.
