Beefest 2018
« on: September 26, 2017, 04:19:02 pm »
The date is set for the BeeMaster Beefest 2018. It will bee from Friday, March 23 through to Sunday March 25, 2018 at my farm in Baker County FL.
The address is 23523 County Road 125 N, Sanderson, Florida, 32087-3019.
I have lots of space for campers and tents. I have a one acre pond so bring your fishing poles.
Please let me know on this thread if you are coming and how many in your group.
I will get the names/numbers for the local hotel/motel.
Closest large airport is Jacksonville International Air, 60 miles.  There is also the Lake City Gateway Airport, 29 miles, if you can get flights from your location. It is closer to the farm but it is a small airport.

Hope to see you all.
Jim

What part of Florida are you in? The wife and I might make the trip if we can get free....it's always questionable for us.

I guess what I mean to say is are you north FL? Even though Florida touches Georgia, it's a heck of a drive from the top of Ga, to the bottom of FL.  :wink:

5hr. 15 min. down 75.  About the same for me if I come from West Palm Beach.  Getting free is always the problem.

Fish,
I am only 4 miles from Georgia. If you look at the Florida Georgia boarders on the east side you will see where Georgia dips down into Florida. I am half way down in Florida on the west side of Georgia. Your best bet will probably be to come down I-75.

Actually Jim this is the first I have heard of this gathering.. I pop in and out of here bust mostly admin on the Beemaster FB site. May I suggest you start a potential those attending list just for fun... it is always good to see who may be interested.

What are the plans for the event? And yes I very well may make the 5.5 drive from SC and maybe fishing nut would like to share the ride....I suppose it is an open forum invite event  :wink:
