    UPDATE MAY 1: Congrats to Larry Cole, who won this give-away. Thanks to all entrants.

    Hi everyone. I'm giving away some brand new beekeeping equipment. I made a video showing the items recently. I'm offering this to anyone in Canada or the US. Absolutely free and no pressure.

    Full disclaimer: Bee Outfitters gave me this equipment to offer through my blog, but I am not profiting from this give-away. No entry information will be shared beyond my own eyes.

    ""
    The contest will end on April 30, 2013 and a winner will be randomly chosen from all entries. The winner will be contacted directly and published on Beekeeping in Ontario.""

    Clinch, Thanks for the post and the contest. For future comfort with the idea, just in case you do it again, I would like to request that you also post the winner here. As Gypsi responded, some folks are suspicious of this type of post. It will help relax them and you will be better accepted in the future if you follow up with a posting of the winner in each contest.

    Thanks Iddee. I think it's a great idea to post the winner here. I can completely understand that people are skeptical about offers like this. It's one of the reasons I decided to make a more personal video showing the items.

    Once the winner is selected, I'll post information here. I definitely want to have more give-aways like this in the future and continue spreading the word on beekeeping and helping out new beeks.

    WINNER ANNOUNCED


    Just wanted to let everyone know that the contest closed last night at midnight and this morning, with the help of random.org, a winner was selected from all entries.


    Congratulations to Larry Cole of South Carolina, who won the Beekeeping Essentials prize pack!


    Thanks to everyone who entered. I hope to offer more contests like this in the future with different equipment and beekeeping goodies.

    Three cheers for Larry Cole. :grin:
    I'm sure he will appreciate the generosity of Bee Outfitters, your "sponsors" and put the beekeeping essentials to good use.
    May the equipment, together with a good family of bees produce a nice crop of top notch South Carolina honey. :thumbsup:
