    The 2014 Annual CVBA Picnic was a huge success!  With over 50 people in attendance, the activities were buzzing.  The honey tasting contest had 13 entries with a wide range in color and flavor.  This year’s winner was Doug Roberts, of RabbitEye Farm, West Point.  This year’s winner of the smoker contest was Steve Slappy, whose smoker was still going way past the end of the contest!  Many people mentioned that Steve needs to demonstrate his technique at one of our meetings.  A favorite activity was the hand dipped candles.  Thank you to Jim and George Harris, and everyone who donated wax and manpower to help it run smoothly.  New this year, was a bean-bag toss game that was developed by Emmie Ruth Wise.  This game was made entirely by her and incorporated a honey bee hive theme.  How appropriate, and how fun!  The Beegle Farm is a wonderful place to picnic.  We enjoy it every year and are so grateful to the Beegle family for providing their picnic facility and all the set up that goes with it.
