Dinner Dress
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:37:41 PM »
Do most of you dress up, sport coat and tie?  Are just casual, but nicer than during the clinics?

Bee suit is optional.

So was I.  No one has worn a bee suit for a long time, it seemed to be a Scott Mason signature.  ;D


At the one Expo I attended, it seemed most people wore to dinner what they wore to the rest of the show.  A few might have added a sports jacket, but that could also have been because it got a little chilly.

Yes Jay. A bee suit. No joke. Doug Foscale & I still don't get it.

Take a look through the image gallery. Most are dressed pretty casual.

I googled Bee Suit.  It is the coveralls and head pieces that Bee Keepers wear to prevent being stung.

Jay,


If it had been a beekeepers outfit it would have been more plausible, albeit odd. Instead it was a bee, stripes, antennae and spindly legs, a rather portly bee if I remember right. The reasoning behind the outfit no one but Mr. Mason knows.


As far as dinner attire, as Dave pointed out most people dress casual, and Jimmy's suggestion to look at pictures of past banquets will answer your question. Most of the ladies dress for the occasion, but then they dress better than most of us modelers anyway.

I've never been to any of the banquets, but I do know that you should dress appropriately if you plan to approach the dais and kiss "The Ring".  8) ;)
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Scott Mason wore a Bee Costume to the banquet a few years back.  I think he wanted to get extra use out of his Halloween Costume. I don't know - it must be one of those East Coast things that we don't understand in the Midwest and West.
