    Default Beesource Hall of Fame - Who would you nominate?

    I was reading some of the older Beesource threads today and wondered if there was a Beesource Hall of Fame, who would be inducted? I'll start with two whose contributions have lead to their names being permanently tied with the concept they introduced here.

    "Mountain Camp" - the founder of the "Mountain Camp Method" of putting granulated sugar on top of a hive to supplement stores and get a colony through winter.

    "D Coates" - the desiginer of "D Coates 5 frame nucs" (4 nucs from a single sheet of plywood).

    Are there any other nominations?

    Ditto: MP for his tireless advocacy of sustainable apiaries, and MB for inspiring me to keep bees in the first place and the website he has built.

    Why has no one nominated Ace for his dedicated efforts?

    Even handed, but firm. By the rules. A nice guy in person too.

    We really need to have a beesource gathering some day, somewhere. Chicago maybe?

    Someone set it up. I will try my best to "bee" there.

    I would love, to meet in person, all those who contribute to this site.

    I have seen occasional references to a number of Beesource people meeting at a beekeeping function, such as this HAS meeting:
    http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...-home-from-HAS

    but searching for this topic is not particularly fruitful as it is difficult to identify meetings whose primary purpose is Beesource itself from all the other beekeeping meetings mentioned on Beesource.




    FYI, the "population center" of the USA is at Plato, Missouri, population 109 according the 2010 census. Probably not the easiest transportation arrangements, though.

    The village of Plato is about 170 miles SW of St Louis MO. You can visit Plato's granite marker with its stainless steel plaque:
    "We were in the middle of nowhere," said Bob Biram, village chairman. "But now we're in the middle of everywhere." Not only does Plato hold the honor of being named the 2010 Center of Population, the village was the first community in the nation to become incorporated in the new millennium.

    I think to make a Beesource Gathering come together it might need to be tacked onto another major beekeeping event in a central location. Perhaps an event where one or more of the above nominees would be speaking. A "Beesource Member" gathering could be planned for after hours. It would be a great time, I'm sure.

    I seem to remember something like this being planned years ago but don't remember if it ever came to fruition.

    >How far from St. Louis is Plato?

    170 miles. I've heard Hays, KS claim to be the geographical center as well, it's a hard thing to pinpoint as the lines halfway from any point on any coast to any other point don't all converge on the same place. Omaha is as close as Hays or Plato but St. Louis is a major hub as is Chicago.
