Title: Announcement Dates For "Bud5"
Post by: JP 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!

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.

I hope you good folks don't mind a couple of newbies. My neighbor and good friend started our first hives in March of last year. We were both able harvest honey in the summer and thought we had this bee thing figured out, (sarcasm). My hive seems to be doing well but my friend lost his. Anyway, we are only about a 2 1/2 hour drive away and I would really like to come. We hope to see you there! Thanks, David.

Everyone is welcome to come and participate. There's absolutely no pressure, except for Larry, cause he's gonna do a cut out without protection and I'm filming every second of it!  :-D

David if you've never caught a swarm, there's usually at least a few to be had. From there if you like you can participate in a cut out, going through hives and grafting. There's other stuff that goes on too.

Looks like my wife and I could attend. I just wanted to make sure I am not overstepping my bounds and assuming we are welcome. JP or Bud could you elaborate on some things we should bring, being first time attendees. Also, it starts Sat morning, or do people show up Friday night? Probably will do the hotel thing, how many people usually camp?

Anyway, my wife keeps asking all kinds of questions, and I don't have any answers. All I can tell her is it looks like a blast.

I'm ready to make some new friends.

everyone is welcome.  i can't answer your question about how many camp.  i will be in the hotel because i can't figure out how to bring a tent as a carry on :-).  i'll be to the hotel friday.  i don't know if there is anything planned before saturday, but i'd be pleased to meet anyone who's around for dinner on friday!

Larry, I have no idea where you stayed last year...But assuming it was at what appears to be the only hotel in Macon, MS.

River Chase Inn
12710 Highway 45, Macon, MS 39341

Hope this is it and helps.  :)

Larry,
I may be mistaken...I've never been to Macon before...However, I'm looking forward to this April!  :-D

Anyway!  I think they're one and the same, they both show the same address.

Oak Tree Inn (http://www.hotelplanner.com/Hotels/50357/Reservations-Best-Western-Oak-Tree-Inn-Macon-12710-Highway-45-South-39341)

And

River Chase Inn (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g43867-d545623-Reviews-River_Chase_Inn_Macon-Macon_Mississippi.html)

Probably worth a phone call to end the mystery.  :)

OK, I did it !!!

Just made reservations for June and I.

Thanks to everybody that helped me with the motel name and phone number. The name is Oak Tree Inn and the phone number is: 662-726-4334.

If you have AARP the rate goes down to $64.00 + tax per night. That's for a King Size Bed. They may give discounts for other things too. I didn't ask.

June says that she will gladly help out cooking breakfast.

See you all next month.

Larry & June

All you first timers are about to get the most intensive immersive and wonderful education with fun, loving and amazing teachers.  Absorb it all, try everything, say thank you! and by all means make sure you sit and drink coffee and sop up all Alan Buckley has to say of a morning.  He will change the way you think about keeping bees!  The wealth of knowledge from everybody is just astounding.  And the camaraderie is  even better.  Ohhh!  I so wish I could gooo!

If anyone is passing through Atlanta on the way and feels like stopping by to pick up Bud's box, please let me know! I WILL get there next year, but would sure like to return it :).

love to everyone, and JP, take a bite of EVERYTHING for me  :evil:  and hug EVERYBODY from me :-*  and bud twice!

June and I won't be coming this year either. We wanted to see all of the people that we met last year, plus met a bunch of new beeks this year.

In three weeks we are going to the Hatfield and McCoy Trails up in West Virginia. Since we started riding ATVs, we have lost some of our interest in bees. We were going to try and make both trips, but have decided to just do one.

Nate drove down to Bud's on Wednesday before, I believe. He and Bud had rain for a day or two then it cleared and Schawee showed up. The three of them went fishing. (Schawee claims he caught all the big ones, but we seen the proof in the pudding. Nate caught the big one! :-D )

Scott and Peggy showed up next, we trickled in on Thursday morning early, before daylight. My poor wife, she was so tired, could hardly keep up. Last minute decision and not enough time or space we took two vehicles. Had to go a little fast those last 10 miles or so to get there before daylight so all the bees in the back of my truck didn't go to flying.  :-D

A rain storm moved in about 15 -20 minutes after we got the bees out the truck. It was nap time then.

After we got the beauty rest it was time to do some cuttin' up and catchin' up with the gang.

Friday brought in more new and familiar faces and Saturday was the big dog day.

The rain got us on Sunday, at least the first half of the day, but most everyone had gone back or was on the road by then.

All in all, starting with the day Nate showed up there were 7 swarms shook and 2 cut outs performed.

We also grafted inside of Bud's living room on Sunday morning because of the rain, with Alan Bukley and Scott (Hardwood) giving the lessons.

A couple of groups split off at some point on Saturday and went on and made several splits of Bud's bees.

We even got to see Big Daddy Bud show off his shooting skills by knocking down a swarm with his trusty pistol!

it sure was a great time folks!

Please consider coming down to the next one, you won't be disappointed!

"Fun Was Had By All" was a quote by the journalist that was there and what a true statement. Thanks Bud for hosting yet another great event and to all that came and helped put it all together. I always think the event is way to short though.

Bud withdrawals!  Being back at work after such a great weekend stinks!  All i want to do is stay home and play with the bees. :D

Mikel and I had a great time, if it was fast and furious.  Truck sleeping needs a little work  : / but we'll be ready next year.  So glad we made the trip.  It was great to re-hook with old friends and much fun to meet all the new faces.

Bud you are a man among men.  Thank you for your big heart and generosity in hosting us all.  I love you! Thank you.

Can't wait til next year.  See you all then!

love,
ziffa
