well danno he is not listed as a Russian Breeder, see for yourself
http://www.russianbreeder.org/members.htm

maybe he's not in it anymore if he was?

I work with Dwight Porter. If you look at his site and look in the "ABOUT" section you will see he mentions me as helping him,
http://www.porterfarmbees.com/

 he comes and stays at my home and works his bee's here to get a head start on raising them, he is north of me about 2 hour drive but he's kinda in the mountain area so my place warms up faster, have got to learn a lot from Dwight so its a benefit for us both  ;) .

The reason I was looking for Chuck Norton is he live very close to my sister.  I talked to him and her last year about picking up queens for me.  I also talked to TSA about bringing them on in a carry on.
