Awesome weekend at Bud 5
« on: April 14, 2013, 01:29:34 PM »
Wow what a weekend. Today is Sunday and unfortunately the weather turned to rain and gusty winds cutting our weekend activities short. But considering a tornado  and heavy rain moved through on Thursday knocking down trees and power being out the turnout was spectacular.
A bunch of us gathered Friday and got acquainted with one another. And then off to supper at the local restaurant where I think we may have overwhelmed them. We showed up with probably a group of 30 or so.
Yesterday we started out with an great breakfast from Scott and Peggy while waiting for things to warm up and bees to get active.
Throughout the day they did cutouts from nuc boxes,demonstrated doing splits and did a cutout from an outhouse. Then for lunch Schawee prepared a deer piquant which was awesome.  Then for supper we had Baileys jambalaya with sausage rabbit and alligator. and shrimp and crab alfredo.

Here is a listing of people that came, and If I missed anyone let me know.
Bud
Mary Beth (Clyde) and sprout
JP and Liz
Schawee
Ziffabeek and Hippie Beek
Scott (Hardwood) and Peg
JM Blakeny
Fireguy (Travis)

For those that couldn't make it, sorry, you missed a great time.  The food at the restraunt Friday nite, the meals that Schawee fixed for lunch and the supper that Baily fixed on Saturday were all great, as well as breakfast Sunday morning at Bud's.  You should start planning to attend next year.  Lots of fellowship with all and learning too.  Great time to be had by all

Couldn't access your photobucket for some reason

One of the best weeks/weekends I've had.  Thanks to all for the fellowship and a great time.  I wish safe travels home for everyone, too bad Sunday rained out, but we had a blast on Saturday.  Until next year.

Looking at the pictures it looks like everyone was either smiling big, concentrating on what was going on, or...goth.  :-D

Looks like it was a great gathering!!!!   :)

Buzzbee,
Thanks for the recap, couldn't agree more, it was a great time and wonderful to meet everyone.  Thanks to everyone for sharing their pics, I was so into enjoying every moment that I never even took my camera out.  Just like everyone else, I was disappointed that the rain moved in on us Sunday, but after the beautiful day we had Saturday, itls tough to complain.  

Also a huge thanks to Bud for hosting as well as Schawee, Bailey and everyone else who played a role in  making sure everyone was so well fed.
