The Big Sky Beekeepers annual honey extraction event took place on the weekend of September 25, 26, & 27.  The club extractor was set up in Sean Weston's garage.  Members signed up for one or two hour time slots, depending on the number of frames they needed to extract.  At 9am on Friday there was a demonstration of how to use the extractor.  Members then proceeded to extract their honey until the last group finished at 6pm on Sunday.  There was a mishap on Saturday when a frame fell apart during extraction, breaking the extractor lid and one of the lid hinges.  A temporary repair was done and the schedule was resumed without delay!  Thanks to all who participated in this event and especially to club president Sean Weston, who hosted it.
