Highlights included the Queen luncheon which was a dad and daughter date. Tim and Ansley had an opportunity to visit with other beekeepers over lunch. Coincidentally, 2 of the 3 gentleman who sat at their table happened to be chiropractors as well!
The evening banquet was great as Tim took Harrison and Ansley. Sarah hung with the baby bees back in the hotel room. The banquet included delicious food, awards presentations, the 2014 Iowa Honey Queen coronation, and an auction. Not to mention, there were bee cupcakes! The key speaker for the weekend was Randy Oliver, a beekeeper and scientist/researcher from Northern California. Randy was full of information regarding the challenges facing beekeeping today.
