The Brisbane Native Bee Club held a Hive Show where members brought along boxes they’d made and the builders had a chance to talk about their boxes. There were 14 speakers, so it was a good turn out. The hall was a packed with a wide variety of designs. A great day and good to meet quite a few people.
I didn’t get photos of everything but here’s a few from the day. I brought along an Observation Box and a Mail Box unpainted as I didn’t get a chance to finish them , I was sanding them an hour before I went to the meeting!
