Re: 2013 splitting challenge.
This needs to be a 20lb min per hive or you eliminate your entire entry. 20lb average includes every colony you have in the contest since it includes all of their totals. Also is it 20 lbs of harvested honey or that they simply made 3 deep frames of honey over the course of the summer? I would not be harvesting from such efforts. Not sure production of honey fits in with the goals of this contest either. You could turn it into the next contest which is how many of these splits survive to the end of December. That still boosts the quality issue a bit.
