Bud 7 in Macon Mississippi 4/11 and 4/12 2015
« on: December 27, 2014, 11:04:45 AM »
Plans are in the works for another great weekend at Buds on April 11th and 12th at Buds place in Macon Mississippi. It has always been a great weekend with experienced beekeepers and novices alike joining in on handson experience of shaking swarms, doing splits, learning the process of doing cutouts, not to mention just a good chance to meet some great people.
 Now mind ya, this is typical swarm season for Buds area, but nature can always throw a wrench in somewhere. She has been very kind bee wise for the most part in events past.
 I will try to keep this updated as nmore info becomes available, and I'm sure JP will chime in here too!
 
Here is the lowdown on directions to Buds if you set out on this fun packed weekend:

Here is directions to Buds from different points in the Southern region:

pretty  much the only game in town, although there was something right in town that someone used last year.  maybe they will post.

make reservations early and often.  not a joke   :-D  last years some of us found that our reservations had gone missing and we were fortunate to have confirmed before we left.  the first year I stayed there, they were putting people up from a tornado and rooms were all booked.  if i had not had my reservation, I would have been sharing a bed with someone.   :evil:

Not a bad place.  clean both times I have stayed.  Breakfast is iffy, but there is coffee at least.  Not far from Buds house. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
