As well as
field days, the Club generally has at least one off site field trip per
year. In June, instead of a field day a video evening is held. The
AGM in early August is followed by a guest speaker, and a honey
competition with an invited honey judge, followed by supper. The
December field day is followed by a BBQ. The field day in May is
preceded by a working bee and BBQ. At various times of the year the
Club attempts to make paraffin dipping facilities available.
The club also has a booth at the yearly A&P show each November. Contact club committee members if you would like to volunteer for a day of booth duty - it's a real buzz!
Members periodically take a bee display to school groups. Again, if you would like to do this, or have a school group that would like to have a visit, contact our club.
At various times in the year, some club members run training classes on setting up hives, etc. These are posted in the calendar where they are marked as either being club events or events run by other organizations.
Members attend the annual NBA and Federated Farmers AGMs.
