Congratulations to all of the participates at our guessing games in the Bee Barn at the Lorain County Fairgrounds this past week.  Each winner will have a 1 pound bottle of honey mailed to them.

The winners of our contests are:
Question #1:  Guess the number of bee buses.   
Answer:          239
Winner:  Noah Weaver of Wellington
Honorable mentions go to:  Jacob Miller, Brittany Gordon, Shaun Jefferies, Danny Conley, Ben Perkins, Jennessa, Jayla, Kitiara Hill and Faye Clark
There were a lot of good guesses but there was one extra bee bus at the top of the pile that was missed by many.  We had several right answers so a drawing was done to select a winner.   

Question #2:  Guess the weight of one bee bus filled with bees.
Answer:           5.1 pounds
Winner:           Jennessa

Question #3:  What is the weight of all of the bee buses with the bees?
Answer:           1,218.90 pounds
Winner:           Lew Marquart of Columbia Station

Thank you everyone for participating and hope to see you at the fair again next year!
