Virginia Meet Up

Post by JohnnyMcPiperson » Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:19 am

I’ve heard some talk of a Virginia meet up, maybe in Charlottesville, maybe somewhere else, who’s down, when’s good, where?

I would love to meet more cps guys.
I understand there are smoke shops with places to smoke in Bristol, Roanoke and Charlottesville. North or East of that becomes a tough day trip for me.
I will follow this thread with interest.

Virginia roll call-sound off!

Charlottesville is only about an hour and a half for me, Bristol is about 5 hours. Lynchburg is also a possibility...

Lynchburg might be the most central location to everyone... they have City Place Cigars downtown I believe

Heck, if you have it in Lynchburg that's getting close enough for me. Probably about 3 hours.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Yes, it’s about 2-3 hours for a lot of us I think, a good central location. Lynchburg it is, we will get an early start, meet up for an 11pm brunch? And then hang out at the cigar shop downtown for 3-4 hours freeing us up to head home around 5 or 6pm? How does that sound for a Saturday? This would mean that most of us would leave our houses around 8am and get back around 8:30pm...

If any North Cacalakians would like to come on up, I’m sure we could find a place for them to stay Saturday night

Hmmmmmmmm, What sort of flop house situation are we talking about here?

Is there a dog that will help keep me warm as I sleep on the cold hard floor? Kitty? Flipping hampseter? Something? Anything?

Just a couch at my place, but I don’t know about anybody else...

The main street location for this shop used to be Mr. John's Tobacco. I used to work there on Saturdays.

Huh, I used to frequent Mr. John’s back in college quite a bit, last time I was up that way it had become City Place Cigars, now it’s something different huh?

Just to be clear, I am in on a Lynchburg meet-up, assuming no calendar conflicts.
Possibly a Saturday, with smoking and fellowship at a local shop, either preceded or followed by some local food.
I have never been to Lynchburg, so that's about all I have to say about that.

Any ideas on a date? I'm in good shape from now until March, then I may be getting involved in some more medical testing. And April 7 is the Raleigh pipe show.
