We had 25 people come out to enjoy the stunning weather. It was a delightful day to be on the island. We had a few experienced hunters but most folks were new to the hobby. We had 4 boat trips each direction to get everyone on and off the island.

The highlight for the day was the vast quantities of honeys, including one species that seemed to prefer soil! We have several species that are new to the island, and even a couple that may be new to the club.
