Announcement Dates For "Bud5"
« on: January 20, 2013, 01:07:27 PM »
This year our annual get together at Bud's will be held the weekend of April 13th & 14th so please mark you calendars!

For those who haven't attended, we always have more than a great time. For those who have attended, you know full well what I'm talking about!

If you've never caught a swarm, performed a cut out, split a hive, or grafted, you're in for a treat!

We have dinners covered and drinks, most lunches too. You may want to pack some of your favorite lunch or breakfast items and any of your favorite snacks.

All are welcome to camp right on the premises and use Bud's house for showers and bathroom matters. If you want to stay in a hotel/motel be sure to book your reservations early as the town of Macon, Mississippi is quite small.

Sure hope you can make it down!

Kathy, would love to see you again, hope you can make it down.

Bailey, not sure what Schawee is cooking but would have to think gator sauce picante at the top of the list.

You know I wouldn't miss it!

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Columbus and Meridian airports are both about the same distance from Bud's place.  I flew into Columbus last year because it was 80dollars cheaper than Meridian.

Tefer, Bubba Phat survived two Bud gatherings and everyone knows Bubba Phat is off limits!  :-D

CD, I'm always kidding Liz about how tasty he looks and when we're putting him in the roasting bag?  :shock: :-D
