I now speak three languages and even still I don't have the words to sufficiently describe how much I would love to make this trip.

I wish it were possible. Alas, the Pacific Ocean and half a continent stand in the way.

DEADLINE FOR MASTER OF PIPES NOMINATIONS EXTENDED TO DEC. 31

Pipes and tobaccos magazine is again this year pleased to join the Chicagoland Pipe Collectors Club (CPCC) and the Doctors of Pipes in sponsoring the annual Master of Pipes awards, to be presented at the CPCC cigar dinner of the Chicagoland Pipe & Tobacciana Show on May 5, 2018.

The title Master of Pipes, first conferred at the 2017 Chicago show, is an annual recognition of select pipe smokers and members of the tobacco industry who have contributed significantly to our hobby but who have not yet been active in the pipe community for 20 years or more (a requirement for the Doctor of Pipes award). The first Masters of Pipes named were David Shain and Sykes Wilford.

Qualifications for the Master of Pipes award are the same as those for the Doctor of Pipes award except the service requirement is reduced to seven years and an age cutoff is stipulated to encourage younger pipe activists, who are an increasingly important part of our community. Therefore, the Master of Pipes is open only to individuals who are 45 years old or younger as of Jan. 1 of the year of the award.

New Masters of Pipes are elected by current Doctors of Pipes. P&T magazine will serve as the front line for receiving nominations to be considered.

Readers are encouraged to submit nominations, in accordance with the following rules:

• Master of Pipes nominees must have at least seven demonstrable years in the hobby and/or the industry.
• Nominees must prove their age will be 45 years or less as of Jan. 1, 2018.
• Nominees must be engaged in activities that promote pipes/pipe tobacco and support the pipe community.
• Individuals may not nominate themselves, although cooperation in the process will be necessary by both submitters and candidates.
• As with the Doctor of Pipes award, two Masters of Pipes will be conferred. One will be in the industry category, for people working in pipes — retail, manufacturing, distribution, photography, publishing — anything that earns the nominee a living within the pipe community. The other Master of Pipes award will encompass hobbyists.
• As previously stated, recipients will be awarded at the CPCC cigar dinner during the Chicagoland Pipe & Tobacciana Show on May 5, 2018. Please note that attendance is mandatory.
• A committee chosen by P&T magazine will review nominations and submit five to the Doctors of Pipes, who will review the candidates’ qualifications and choose the winners.
• At the show, each winner will receive a framed certificate and a lapel pin indicating his or her selection as a Master of Pipes.
• A Master of Pipes is eligible for a Doctor of Pipes award in the future.

To nominate a deserving pipe smoker, please send a letter listing the nominee’s qualifications. Include his or her contact information (telephone number and email address required), birth date and the length of time the person has been active in the hobby. Send nominations to:

Pipes and tobaccos magazine
Master of Pipes
901 Jones Franklin Road, Suite 102
Raleigh, NC 27606

Or, preferably, you may send your nomination via email to wcn@pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com.

Remember to write the nomination honestly and to the full advantage of the candidate, including the person’s contributions to the hobby. This is what will primarily be used to judge acceptability, so please be thorough. Nominations that do not include contact information (both email and telephone number) for both the submitter and the candidate will be disregarded. We will research the candidates and find the best five that we can to forward to the Doctors for final selection. Nominations must be received on or before Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017. Please forward questions via email to William C. Nelson, wcn@pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com.

The award will be covered in the pages of P&T magazine, including photos of the winners. If possible, the new Masters of Pipes will be featured on the cover of the magazine (dependent, among other factors, upon the photogenic charms of the people involved).
