Hi Gang:

I have started compiling videos from the Southern Beemaster Gathering in Macon, MS. As I add videos, it will be to this page, so please check back.

In Video One we start about an hour and a half from Bud's place, that's PDMattox, Understudy and I. We show up minutes before Bud1 and SC-Bee arrives. Later that same day CWBees, JP and Alan Buckley arrive. It was a wonderful weekend, jam packed with bee projects, incredible talk, great accomidations and awesome food Uncle Bud Style! I'll Intro each video as I add them, hope everyone enjoys these a fraction of how those who attended did.

Video One MEETING UNCLE BUD in Macon, MS Arriving Day One and meeting several of the members.





Grafting Video Part one with Alan Buckley

Here is video 2 a day with Alan Buckley showing everyone how to properly graft larva into queen cells. This Video is a two parter.




Here is PART 2 of Queen Grafting with Alan Buckley. Alan gives some great advice and shows off some well practiced techniques.



Hope everyone enjoys these videos featuring the members who traveled far to meet and greet each other and EVERY DAY there was something awesome to do.

Video FOUR - The Hunting Lodge - many members who attended the gathering got a real treat when they had accomidations at a very hi-end hunting lodge. This multi-kitchen, meeting room equiped, full den with HDTV and room after room of full beds and bunk quarters can house dozens of hunters comfortably. Here is a peek at how well Bud treats guests.



As you can see, great food, awesome accomodations, daily activities, terrific company, hands-on beekeeping cut-outs and even night-time hive handling - a beekeeper's dream weekend.



Here is the last of the videos. Here we see the results of the queen cell grafting, take a short trip around Bud's property, get some good laughs and finally say goodbye as we all prepare to leave.

There will be one more video - a slide show collection coming soon. Hope you have enjoyed the videos, it has been a blast making them and reliving so many great times during our gathering.

Great video. I think the best this about the video is seeing the faces for the names. It really makes the forums more personal.

Thanks for the comments:

I've sat here figuring out how to best divide these by topic - it took two segments to do Alan Buckley, he is an amazing man to listen to and should be everyone's mentor. The first two are working, part two of Alan's Video is uploading as I type this - for some reason the video still frame image isn't working on that second clip - I may need to re-upload that.

But here are what other videos to expect - all in the this same link:

* The Hunting Lodge - this was the guest quarters for the gang, talk about 4 start luxury from a 20ftx20ft living area, 3 kitchens 3 to 4 baths, massive kitchen and dining room and even a confrence room.

* Road trip with Dallas - the language here is a bit rough, but the humor and fun we had is unexplainable. In this video you will see his DEER STAND and find out what other Hunting Sports can be done from there.

* Photo gallery - enjoy a nice musical sound track as I combine still photos in an enjoyable slideshow - that's to JP, I'll have a very complete Gallery of images.

* Dallas doing Bee Moving from one of his yards to an orchard at nearly 11pm to 1am - nearly three hours of condensed night footage using (handheld camera) with night vision and regular mode for some close up shots.

Hope everyone enjoys these. I hope to have most done today.

GEEZE, youre on the wrong side of the road!!

Kittens, you all gunna eat Kittens?

Understudy, you look the way I thought you would kinda CIA lookin...also looking Good Boss! Dallas, you all broken up? Howd that happen!

UNCLE BUD! there he is! Just as warm in real life as he is on the chat. GAWD, now hes NUDED UP! Hello Steve!

Now the boys look to be comparing guts!

Beemaster is silent, he must be filming.

Ok now Mr. Bud is flexing for the cam, hes what we call "2 axe handles across". Some dude is cooking, nope, hes got bees in BBQ! OOPs hes melting wax!!

Now Mr. Bud has regressed into his native lingo and I caint unnestan what the heck he sayin BOYH!

Beemaster is looking in the basement for grog! Must be part Aussie. You never know when an emergency is gunna hit, tornado or something, so good to have a scout around quick. Hats off to ya Mr. John.

OOOOH was that a CASE of Guns???, Id be surprised if it aint!

Great movie! Nice work Boys! Not one shot fired outta the window!

I will ration myself to one a day!

Ok well I cheated and skipped to the Buds Lodge.

Man what I set up, "Hitlers Bunker" lol as BM says, WOW all those rooms and beds. I kinda heard you had a shack Mr. Bud, but not that kinda shack!

Was that Dallas filming ther wires and light switch? you work too much mate!

Theres the Bird Man, hi Chris, very laid back, how surprising!

This is kinda like a peep show!

Steves room looks like hes lived in it a week, only been there a day, my kinda man! and Beeroclocking, good to see one decent performer amongst you all.

Making a one legged man film = priceless.

Deer Gutting Station?? Man Mr. Bud sure must own half of Macon.

What a trip so far, sadly not much dirt yet, but loads of fun.

Mr. Bud you are a very generous man, but I guess you get that way when you own a County.

I mean this with the greatest of respect Bud. I wish your late Momma could have been there to meet those boys. I know how much fun she had listening in the background on Ventrillo. I can hear her laughter in my head when I hear your voice.

i think bud deserves a statue in his honor.  that was quite a bunch to host!!  i think the girls need to set up camp in the field for the next one.  we can be the opposing force on the other side of the ditch   :evil:

and....NO DISH WASHING!!
.....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.....

I've done the tent thing and don't have a problem doing it, but that lodge has plenty of room for all of us to board, and you girls can have your own private rooms.

Y'all don't even need to pick up after yourself, Leonard takes care of that, of course a lil cash tip for him goes a long way. ;)

The man got lobster. Free hive inspection. Grafted queens. And all the fun you could cram into one weekend. Maybe not a statue, but the opportunity to do it again next year. Muhahah   :evil:


Bud, Thank you so much you were a great host and I for one had a great time.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Nope, if it came to pass, the gals would have one big room to share.  We need our space and girly time is really important, you probably wouldn't even see us.  And yep, yep, NO DISHES....great day in this beautiful life, health.  Cindi

I just uploaded the FIFTH VIDEO from the gathering at Bud's in Macon, MS - it includes seeing how the graftings came out the following day, a quick tour of Bud's property and the catfish breeding ponds, and finally a hearty goodbye as everyone prepares to leave Buds and return home to all parts of the country.



There will be one more video, a slide show of photos coming soon :)

Please let me know of you enjoyed these. Thanks.

    Grafting. This video can be long and boring unless you are really into grating however the last minute makes it all worth it.

  Night Hives. This is from when we went into the hives late at night. It was quite the adventure.
