2011 BioQuip Holiday Open House- In Review

This year's holiday open house was by far one of the best BioQuip has ever had. The Showcase Contest produced a never before seen amount of dedication and creativity in meticulously arranging arthropods in a display case. The arrangements presented a few surprises throughout the competition. BioQuip's summer intern Royce Cumming displayed his photography and collection which were admired throughout the night.

The BioQuip Holiday Open House was a great way to end a good year of collecting. It was a great chance to catch up with fellow collectors and friends.
