3RD ANNUAL BEEMASTER GATHERING ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
« on: January 09, 2011, 11:17:08 PM »
All Members:

I'm excited to announce that our annual member gathering (called BUD3 - named after our host and it being our THIRD get-together) will be held:

The WEEKEND of APRIL 9th and 10th, 2011 in Macon, MS.

As in past events, arriving and staying a day or so longer is greatly encouraged, although most Beekeeping events will be held on the weekend. These dates are a break from our normal "last full weekend in April" because it fall on Easter this year.

Please mark your calendars and try to make it to this seasonal hit that brings members from around the country and very likely a special guest member from across the globe.

More details to follow, but I wanted to get this post started. I'm already shopping airline fares and scheduling that week off, so I hope to meet many new members and can't wait to see members from years past again.

Was thinking it was the weekend of the 23rd, glad you announced it early enough so I can inform those I told was on the 23rd. Bringing my wife this year, she's excited about the event.

Looking forward!

Glad I packed early! Actually I never unpacked from last year :-D

Pop up camper bees are looking good...might get a good video of the cut out!

   Maybe able to make it this year, planning anyway.
Looking at that photo of a fishing trip to the Gulf by a rig and reading about tasting "gator" makes me think of moving back home to NO,LA. and getting in on all that seafood.  :-D :'(

JP and all :)

Been trying to get near a computer long enough the last few days to post the event date, been hectic here at work and very little time awake at home.

I'm excited: looking at $400 air fare right now, so I'll check every week twice from now til then I'm sure something around $240 will come up by then. I'll be leaving out of Newark Airport here in NJ this time, went via Philly last time and the ride there was a bit complicated from here.

Can't wait to see everyone - I'm hoping Tracey comes this time, but I can't promise, she's an office manager and payroll specialist for over 300 people, here job is quite complex much of the time and most of her vacation time ends up being use or lose time when she can find the days.

Bruce, look forward to that gator too!

Hope everyone got the mass posting I did last night??? I rarely send them out, but I wanted everyone to get the message. Good luck to everyone wanting to come, hope your schedules work out perfectly!

I believe I can make it this year, is it big enough this year to have a formal workshop track?

Can I volunteer to be the official videographer?

What is the recommendation for accomadations and which airport to fly into?

Here is my new book on Swarm Trapping at http://learningbeekeeping.com/beekeeping-articles/how-to-swarm-trap/ and follow me on youtube at

I will be there.  Looking at flights as well, much cheaper this year than last year.  Or I could always drive.  But I will make it this year for sure.

Grandma Dog:

We have accommodations for single women, families and and you need to fly into Meridian, MS (MEI airport code) but the only way to get to a plane that goes to Meridian is to go to Atlanta, GA - they have a twice daily flight to Meridian thru Delta.

Hope that made sense :) I hope you can make it, and YES (thank you) official videographer you are :) I think you will be amazed at the things you will capture. The events, last year removing a huge swarm from a speaker box had 40 people in a barn watching. Very cool.

I'm going to check the fare now... Ugh back up to $420, it was $385 yesterday, but it WILL come down around 4 weeks until the flight. I'm holding out under $300 :) Can't wait to see you there - we can arrange someone picking you up - I'll be at Meridian on Wednesday the 6th at around 1:55 you land in Meridian. I don't know who else is flying, but we hope everyone who does tries to come that day (albeit early) people start coming in. You CAN rent a car from the airport, it is an hour and a half to Bud3 - directions are already posted using lots of photos and interactive onscreen navagation through Google Maps.

Hope all that helped. I really believe you'll have a great time!

I don't know if airline prices are going to come down if thinks in Egypt don't stop and the price of oil stops rising.   NPR ran a story on jet fuel prices at sky high levels today.

I like the new avatar better, your name threw me and I had you figured for the ladies lodging - lol, sorry about that one. But your lodging will be covered, kinda first come first serve on the loner rooms (Bud is generous to let me have first pickens) but we have some members who are flying much further than me this time!

EVERYONE:

This year we will be holding a 50/50 where the winners splits the booty with our host. Bud goes way out on the line to see we all eat and have fun and bed down at night - I wish we did the 50/50s in the past, it is a nice jesture and it could add up to a good payday!!

Last note, it is less than 2 months now, start checking those travel arrangements, scout cheap airfare and whatever it takes. If you are driving, maybe you can hook up with another member and share the cost of fuel and driving.

This is gonna be really great, many new faces to see this year and I hope plenty from Bud# past.

It's a ticket raffle - where the winner gets half and the other half goes to the cause.

I was thinking 3 tickets for $5  - 15 tickets for $20. We'll have sales through the days and do the drawing on Sunday. If the winner isn't there, we'll mail it to them.

Something to entice the gamblers and "just plain lucky folks" !

We could throw in the pop-up bees to the pot! (as long as the winner was close enough to get them home) :)

That wouldn't be right, Bud. JP stays in the dog house at home most time, anyway. He wants to come see you to get out of the dog house.  :evil:  :-D

In the main Lodge, there is a long modular series of rooms, I like Kathy's idea, having a ladies bunk room. Although since it is one continuous bunk house (like a series of train cars) then the ladies bunk room needs to bee in the rear room.

Not a big deal and does solve a problem, thanks Kathy.

I think it is great, only 2 weeks (12 days for me) to BUD3. I am very pumped for this gathering. We need as many digital cameras as you folks have. Shoot some footage and we'll combine it all on Youtube.

I always like weddings where each table has a bowl of throw-away digital camera. Most of them automatically place the photos online for you, so whomever sends in the cameras, they have them go to the same gallery, literally a seamless wedding album that everyone who attended can share. That is technology that is cool.

But, bring your cameras, stills and video both. And let's coordinate our images and videos.

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'm sure whatever is comfortable with everyone else in a bunkhouse is fine of course. I think Saturday we might have a birthday suit bunk-jumping contest - should be real iteresting with the lights out  :-D I'll be staying at Bud's so if that mead is anything like his Elderberry wine, I don't have too far to pass out.

Speaking of which, the wine last year was soooo good it snuck up on you nicely with the smoothness of tea. Of course I went four-wheeling with Dallas and Lady Michelle for about two hours (I don't remember one second of it) but I never fell off the quad (I think) and I woke up all snuggy in bed the next morning. I only wish someone would have used my camera to video some of it. It wasn't until later that next day, brought up by me, that I learned of our 2 hour ride  :roll: I'm sure it was a blast, wish I could remember it.

I'm a light weight in the drinking department, a 6 pack of beer lasts me weeks and a bottle of wine with dinner occastionally, isn't enough to build up a good resistance to partying hearty - not for me. But I never woke up feeling like crap and Bud gets the best wine I ever had award.

well look for some mead from me that was started late in 2009 and has been in bulk age till now.
no sediment! smooth taste and great clarity! very dark color though.
 
will be bringing at least 1/2 of that 5 gallons with me!
if the strawberry is ready then some of it might get there.

cant wait!

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
