November 4th BCBC Meeting at Groce UMC, 954 Tunnel Road in Asheville.
Doors will open at 6:15 pm. Annual Potluck will begin at 6:30. If you bring a dish containing honey, enter it in the Cooking with Honey Contest! We will have competitions for best main dish, best side dish and best dessert made with honey in the recipe.
Our presenter will be Master Beekeeper Debra Roberts –
Following the Bee Trail in Turkey. This year, Debra Roberts was invited to be a roving bee school in four cities around Turkey, the second top honey producer in the world. She also was invited to attend a festival in the Black Sea region that featured their traditional Karakovan hive - log hives on cliff faces and that hang from trees. Come hear some of her tales about epic beekeepers, what is the same and what is different in beekeeping practices, and how the beekeepers in the Black Sea creatively deal with bears.
Also, we will elect our officers for 2014.
The evening will be packed with lots of great food, great program and our usual great beekeepers. See you there!
**This will be our last meeting for 2013. After the November meeting, look for us in early 2014!
