SPRING IS COMING - Member gathering Rallies coming soon!
« on: December 29, 2008, 06:50:49 AM »
I know we have lots of cold months ahead, but I want to at least start you thinking about getting toger by region as members strive to meet each other again this year. Last year, many members in different sections of the country and even from around the globe met with each other and as each year goes by I hope we are more and more organized and plan well ahead.

The on gathering I was honored to attend was the meeting of PDMattox, CWBees, the whole Buzzbee Family and my wife Tracey and I got together in Philadelphia, PA for an afternoon. This year, I hope we DOUBLE the number of people who meet during that period.

In two other meetings, I had the pleasure of Geoff from Australia stay for 4 wonderful days and TWT from Georgia (state not Country) stay here 2 days on the way to MAine's Lobster Fest and 1 night on the return trip.

The point is, these people are all Ventrilo Friends, people I talked to nightly for months and months (in most of these cases for several years) before we met. We all knew each other like family and we were all comfortable from the very first second. I wish everyone has similar gatherings to people they communicate with through the forum, putting a living breathing person to the text or voice we share in the forum is wonderful.

Here in New Jersey I know of 5 or more members that I have posted with for a long time, KonasDad by far the closest, yet we haven't met. I really hope that changes. So if we start batting around times that are good for everyone, I know we can work out (at the very least) a short meet and greet. Relaxing over a nice meal and a few drinks really opens up conversation and that would help me break free of my shyness shell  :roll: :-P .

So if nothing else, start thinking about who you can meet even if a few hours drive on each side is needed. Creating a list of WHO should be easy, we all have friends here which we would love to meet and distance may make it near impossible, but dreaming it is so, is often the first step toward creating reality. Setting goals is a great way to start too - I hope to add at least 5 new people in face to face meetings and reaquaint myself with all those I have met so far. Seeing Geoff again this year could be a toughy, but we'll get setup with cams and do the next best thing :)

PDMattox (Dallas) from Florida will be coming up here in the Spring or sometime when warmer weather allows that southern boy to thaw and not go dormat on me - lol. This visit I hope will be a few days longer and I've already promised we will make it to NYC which we didn't get to last time. After being to NYC so many times, it doesn't thrill me as much, but who knows, I might talk him into a 2 or 3 day trip to Washington, DC while only 4.5 hours away from here!!!!

Meet and Greet 2009, put that on your list. And to finish, if he is reading this and I'd bet a paycheck he is BUD1 (I call him Uncle Bud) is right there at the top of my list of meeting. We were robbed this past Summer, I and Dallas were ready to visit Bud when I had my car accident and was laid up for 8 weeks. It was almost carved in stone and fell apart when I passed out and plowed into a tree, finding out I was suffering from seizures and now am medically treated to prevent reoccurances (hopefully).

The trip above means I'll be flying down to Dallas, meeting up again with his wonderful family and then taking the drive toward Bud to meet up with him, his daughter and Grandson "Sprout!" Meeting with Bud after enjoying him all this time in chat will be the highlight of my 2009 year. Bud is a true Gentleman who minces no words and always lets you know where he stands - I love that about him. And yes, calling him uncle Bud is not just an honorary title, it is how I feel about Bud, to me he is family.

If you have people here you feel the same about, make the effort, work out the details and get together, it completes the full circle of our forum and it creates a memory you will never forget.

John, oh, you got some nice thoughts going on there, love to read your stuff.  I know what you are talking about when you speak of meeting our forum friends in person. 

This barbeque at Brian Bray's home in Anacortes, WA that Understudy (Brendan), his Wife, Janel, Poka-Bee (Jody), her Husband, Bruce, my Husband Ken and I had the opportunity to meet was nothing short of great and wonderful.  It was like we all knew each other very deeply before we met in the physical, it was cool. 

I would love to meet other forum friends in the physical for sure.  But now I fear with our impending move that will be four hours more further north, that the opportunity has lessened. But then, hey, ya never know.  Thanks for this great post, encouraging our cyberspace friends to meet and get to know each other better.  Have that great, most wonderful day, health.  Cindi

I'm willing to host the event (site) but the planning got over my head a tad.  So If everybody chips in we can have another good rowl here.

I have the place you guys figure out the time and day.

When it gets closer maybe we can get the mods to give us a Sticky with the title with something like: B2s 2nd Annual BBQ and Bee Bust.
Again all forum members from the PNW (BC, Oregon, Washington, & Idaho) invited, plus any drop ins from other parts.

Hey Dallas, we haven't spoken in quite a while, what's it been, a week? No, more like 1 and a half weeks. I will talk with you soon but Brendhan told me the southeast bee conference is Feb 6 and 7 I believe. I'm going to see if I can get my wife to join me and meet up with you if the offer still stands.

Hey John, you know Bud will try and get ya to eat chitlins right?

Oregon is in the middle of washington and California. So maybe if we put it in the middle we can have more people. With jobs and kid's that will make a difference I think. And then the finance will come in with attendance too. Any thing over 200 miles is out for me and the wife and the grandkids. Over that it's just me and my dog for an over night. And I will not step one foot out of the good ole USA.

I just wanted to point out this is a thread about an East coast rally - if you're going to plan another one for the PNW then you really should have your own thread for it......just sayin'  ;)

And I'd try like heck to go to one here on the east coast, but can't make any promises.

Did you read the first paragraph in beemasters post Ann.  :?  Here it is.

I know we have lots of cold months ahead, but I want to at least start you thinking about getting toger by region as members strive to meet each other again this year. Last year, many members in different sections of the country and even from around the globe met with each other and as each year goes by I hope we are more and more organized and plan well ahead.

Yes, I did, but I don't think he wanted us to plan in the same thread, is my point.  There was a wonderful thread for Brian's get-together, and if there's another one planned then I hope a thread devoted to it, through to the finish as that one was, is opened.

OKAY... I changed the title, is everybody happy :)

I see this past week that Cabin Fever is kicking in - we are getting nit-picky as happens every Winter. Sure it starts small with some members killing pets in god aweful ways and others filling screens with the dreaded 11:11 time that ranks right there with a roomful of broken glass to me, but we can all bend a little and talk about meeting other members without needing to start a dozen posts to do it.

Oh... and just to add, NO - I won't be starting a meet and greet forum, everyone knows where to post such interests and "if not" I'm sure some one will point it out to them - lol.

HAPPY NEW YEAR and please keep your happy faces on while here - It ain't Disneyland, but it's home here. Retract your claws, put away your whacking hammers and figure out who'd be able to make it to a meet and greet in your area. Save any caabin fever for Febuary, and then take it elsewhere on the web - we don't mind being busy doing mod stuff, but we don't much care for babysitting the non-important issues that being locked in the house for months tend to turn into rolling snowball, picking up members all the way until we all crash at the bottom.

I'm willing to travel quite a distance this year, I don't know if the PNW will be in my milage, it sure is a trip from the central east coast, but I'll be in the south surely and we'll see where else. I just hope to meet as many members as I can, especially those of you who have been with us a long time and I've gotten to know so well :)

Ah, my forum friends....John, you makka me laugh!!!  It is kind of funny when we do look at those little things of just getting kindof nit-picky for sure.  Yep and ya, I think we are all getting a little of that cabin fever.  Just seems to be something that Old Man Winter loves to hand out, bad boy....spring is just around the corner, the Winter Solstice now long past.  Have a most wonderful and awesomely great day, life, health.  Cindi

One event I hold every year is an open picnic to all beekeepers. This is not sponsored by a bee club or an association. Just started by a couple beekeepers who wanted to extend an invitation to beekeepers that do not attend regular meetings anywhere. (Which by statistics is about 70% of beekeepers) The event is well attended. (97 last year and 124 the year before)

I will not call them out, but I know of at least two beemaster members who attend this picnic. And I have no problem with more attending.

This years picnic is scheduled for July 18  For additional info, go to the events page of the Bjorn Apiary website.

And for anyone driving a good distance, help with accommodations can be arranged.

Being mostly adults here, I wonder what would happen at one of these rallies if someone broke out a fatty (discreetly of course - say around a campfire as the beer and wine wears down) who would be offended, neutral or a toker? not looking for names, just imagining EACH of our impressions of each other.

I'll be honest here, Beemaster has had at least one Annette moment  :mrgreen: in his past and at the very least would not be offended at the jesture! The rest I leave to your imagination and comments  :shock: - watch this turn into a can of worms - lol.

Irwin:

On a very serious not (I have mentioned this before but I feel it should be said again at least once) I'm a strong advocate of medical marajuana and if it had been legal I think I could have had a talk with my dying mom who I know it would have helped, but it could never come up because she had prejudged ideas of it being DOPE, and couldn't possibly help. Personally, in hindsite, I should have whipped up a concentrate and added it to her tea just to see what comments she had. Of course, I wouldn't have done that, but I sure would have loved to had that conversation that may have brought her some comfort in her last days.

That all said, alcohol is the one that should be banned if either were to be - the damage it causes in thousands of was each year is so hypocritcal and unjust. Meanwhile a poor sap can have his life ruined by being caught with a "J" in his pocket. It is wrong wrong wrong, mean while alcoholics are mandated to see "Blood on the highway" get surcharged fines on insurance and back behind the wheel they go - go figure.

A friend of mine once said "I'd rather be on a highway filled with cars carrying smokers than the same highwy filled with drunks!" that always stuck with me, and I couldn't help but agree with him. Of course with the smokers, traffic would average about 30 MPH as they enjoyed the scenery, but think of all the gas we'd save not doing 85 and Faced!

P.S. everyone... I don't mean to change the topic (nor do I want to start a new thread) I just wanted to make comment on something here - please don't move post and I hope we get back on the topic of meetings.

I'm along the Eastern Coast of NJ about 10 miles from the Atlantic. I know to most people THIS is way out of the way, but I have a big backyard, a bareque and a few spare rooms for a get together here too! I've already hoped people from Australia to Florida and Georgia, anytime we can arrange a gathering, I'd gladly open my doors to you folks.

Travel wise though, because of medications I'm on that literally allow me to drive, I'm a bit limited on road miles, but I do have plans to fly a few time this Spring and Summer, I'll give lots of heads up on those dates so I can get together with as many of you as possible. I'll be the guy standing next to the teeshirt stand  :roll: :-D

Yeh John....A "Can of Worms"!!!
 Well,...I think most you guys know me pretty well....I dont smoke weed anymore, but, I also believe alcohol is a bigger probelm..Alcohol has pretty well been at the root of alot of my problems, socially, legally, and healthwise.....I've pretty much done all thats out there...But, in a situation like at a big gathering like you mentioned?...Smokin a joint to me, isnt any worse than havin a beer...Ive never seen someone so stoned on weed to where theyre stumblin, and fightin' and just causing a ruckus! But, its legal to get this way with alcohol!...A little weed??//Go ahead, lite it up! Make merry!! I wouldnt care!...Shoot, who knows? I just mite even take a hit, to be social, you know? Now, breakin out lines of something white...thats a different story...I wouldnt want to see it going on...This kind of stuff is what ruins lives!
Oh yeh....I do have a beer every now and then, and I can guarantee,...If traveling that long of a trip to meet you guys and hang out....I would definitely have a few beers! It would be worth that trip to the emergency room to hang with you guys!...The emergency room people always get me back to normal! (so far) :)

For the record...I have never smoked anything illegal, I never drank any alcohol, and as far as my wife and mom are concerned I was a virgin when I got married, I never bought a dirty mag, I never shot anyone, and I have never cheated on my wife..... :roll: I'm as pure as the wind driven snow... 8-)

Now off the record, perhaps a few past mistakes could be summoned from the darkest places... ;)

Do previous lives count.....  :-D

Not that I have ever heard it said before  :roll: , but does anyone know the most famous word ever spoken by Friends toking on a joint?

As one has just taken a long drag, and extends their arm to the next person while offering the joint, and in attempt to hold one's breathe as long as possible, a slang word muttered along the line of...."eerr" comes out in a half cough from the back of one's throat.  :-D

Long time ago, tried almost everything once. Not into anything anymore that takes me away from my own natural state of peace.

I am not wanting to get off the pot (so I am typing on my laptop :-D ) subject. That stuff makes me laugh so much it becomes annoying to me. So I only tried it a few times.  But that was a long time ago I am older now maybe I will be less likely to laugh myself to sleep now.

Anyway I am one of the members who has attended Bjorn's picnic. It was a lot of fun, good food, door prizes and lots of different types and configurations of hives set up to look at and in. Mike does a great job with the picnic and I am sure I will be going in the years to come. I think it would be really cool to meet more of the people from the forum. I am in for any forum people gathering near by.

John I've never heard of a joint called a fatty I guess I'm out of touch with thing's. I thought you were talking about some thing else. A good friend of mine had the same thing with his mother he suggested pot and she said
I wont be having that.

Irwin, you are out of touch, my baby, so out of touch, my baby....remember that song?

Anyways, being surrounded alot by people that smoke pot, a lot, yes, one of the big words that I hear them speak is -- "come on, let's roll up a fatty", always wondered how big that doobie was....seems to me when they take off to the bush or behind a quad or something, it takes quite some time to smoke that fatty and lots of puffing.  I say "more power to them, have fun with that".  I don't smoke it, but I don't condemn it either, to each his own.  And they have no worries about smoking around me because they know I just don't care, too liberal minded for that nonsense.  Have a wonderful and awesome day, life, great health.  Cindi

Since we all lived thru the sixtys, well lots of us, that should be the least of our concerns "remember freedom rallys", who hasn't tried it in years gone by, or still do. If we are that petty to concern ourselves over what someone else does, I wouldn't want to meet those people. Live and let live is my minds eye.
If it doesn't reflect or cause me undue, why care. and like Cindi says, just go find a bush to stand behind, I find the govermental involvement way over board. Lives are ruined daily over laws about smoking a weed that grows wild all over this country.  Michigan finally this year joined the list of legal medical marijuana use. Just a small step in the right direction. OH ya and, no no no I don't do that no more, got tired of waking up on the floor.  :-D

My wife is friends with a couple that live in Amsterdam. He grows the stuff hydroponically in his house. A joint, a fattie, a doobie, a number.
