It was announced in the greetings section, but Bud 6, the annual gathering of beekeepers from around the country ( and sometimes further
) will be held at Buds home . You may need to plan ahead so I am making sure the notification is here in the club gathering section in addition to JPs previous announcement in the greetings forum.
Last year I had people PM me and I added them to a guest list just so they had a rough idea of how many were coming. I will start assembling the list today as well as some have already made their commitment to attend. If you would like to be added feel free to PM me and I will add you. And I know some are on an if I am able basis, so it's up to you if you would like your name added. Preregistration is not required, and as always there is not a fee for this weekend of activities.
However I would like to point out that they spend money out of pocket to do this each year, so if you do attend, a donation to the hosts would be greatly appreciated I'm sure.
Here is directions to Buds from different points in the Southern region:
