The Gran-Bee, an annual fundraiser for the Granby Education Foundation,
has become a town-wide tradition. Each year, mud season is made
a little more bearable in Granby thanks to this night of friendly
competition, silly antics, and brain-teasing fun.
In the Gran-Bee,
teams of three people compete in seven "swarms" (rounds)
for the right to advance to the final swarm. Here, the finalists
compete until all of the teams are "swatted"
but one. The winning team takes home the coveted Bee trophy, along
with three adult memberships to the Farmington Valley YMCA (generously
donated by the YMCA each year!).
