McHenry County Fair 2014
Come out to the McHenry County Fair and visit the NIBA booth.
Honey donations are still being accepted by the club. We will sell your donated honey to help the club pay the cost of operation. This allows you to get your honey out in to the public and may generate more business for you. It is also a great way to support NIBA. Contact any club officer/board member to donate honey or just bring it to the fair and drop it off at our booth.
How about entering your bee related items in the fair?
Wouldn't a ribbon from the fair make a nice statement about the quality of your product? There are 12 different categories you can enter in: three for bottled honey: light, amber and dark, several different comb honey categories, as well as frames of honey. There are wax categories: block, art and candles. All this falls under the "Foods - department 27" listing. There is a link to that on the fair 2014 book page, link below.
Each category entry only costs $0.75 and you can win $5, $4 or $3, but it really is not about the money. It is just fun.\!
You need to have your entry form in to the McHenry County Fair office no later than 4:00 PM, July 11, 2014.
Your actual entry items need to be brought to the McHenry County Fair grounds Building "F". The drop off is from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM on July 29. The judging will be July 30 at 10:00 AM, pending the arrival of the judge. All this information can be found on the McHenry County Fair 2014 Book pages, execpt the judging information which is out of date on the McHenry County Fair site(as of this posting).
