You Could Win!
The next prize for August is really something. You will try it on when you win. It’s a beekeeping jacket from Mann Lake Ltd., but its not in their catalog. Think Mann Lake jacket, but modified. Our club President, Steve Brackmann, owner of Bear Creek Apiaries-bee supplies, has redesigned their jacket and is donating one for August BCBA Club giveaway. The new jacket is only available at Bear Creek, has better pockets, a hive tool pocket, and thicker neck protection. The neck protection is somewhat shorter in the back, which keeps the fencing mask or veil in the proper position when looking down or looking up. Of course, the jacket is well ventilated. It can even be had in a child’s size. Just to add a finishing touch, a new pair of gloves is included to accessorize the prize. The winner will have to make arrangements to pick the prize up at Steve’s shop on Hwy 6 to have the exact size you require.
It’s a pretty cool jacket and we all know we need coolness here in the county with the bees.
If interested, you must be a paid up 2020 BCBA member. Please text Mike Stein 281-386-6375 or email mgstei1@comcast.net with name and cell number or a valid email address.
Drawing will be August 1st, 2020 @ 1000hrs.
