OBKA Annual Honey Show

November 21 @ 14:00 - 17:00

The OBKA Honey Show will be held on 21 November at 14.00 — venue to be announced.

We have a number of honey classes as well as classes for wax, candles, cakes, photographs Etc. A full list will be announced shortly along with the entry form.

As you will recall, we ran a remote honey show last year but this year we intend to hold the show as normal and ask members to follow sensible COVID precautions.

We will be supported by Claire O’Brien from Reading BKA who is training to become a BBKA Honey Judge.

During judging we are planning either a short talk, a quiz or a Q&A session with some of our more experienced
members on the panel.

If you have never participated in a honey show, there is advice on how to prepare entries from the Somerset BKA
here: https://www.somersetbeekeepers.org.uk/preparing-to-show.html

Above all, a Honey Show is an opportunity to learn how to improve the quality of your hive produces. There are no prizes as such but we do have a number of cups that are awarded for the most points gained in each category (Honey, Wax Etc.). One of our cups is reserved for the most points by a young member and there is also a novice class for people who have not entered a honey show before.
