Unfortunately, I have to post that the Thursday seminar on tobacco blending will not happen this year. Hopefully the environment will be better next year.

Could it be replaced by a counselling session for those who have been traumatized by the FDA's outrageous actions? There must be both aroma therapy and therapy dogs.

Today, I am announcing an event that revived from previous shows. We are going to have the Chicago Bowl this year for the best aromatic blend. On Friday morning in the tent there will be several blends available for tasting. None of them will be identified. Everyone can try them and then vote for their favorite. The blend with the most votes will win the trophy below. The winner and all the contestants will be identified on Sunday. There will be zip lock bags available then to take samples home with you.

If there are any more blenders that would like to participate, I recommend that you bring your choice with you to the show. I will be at the show from Wednesday to the end. Contact me before Friday.

This is the trophy we give to the winner. There is another larger trophy. We add the type of tobacco, blend and company on this trophy every time we have this contest. It will be in the smoking tent on Friday.

Did I tell about the Friday Smoke & Shop? People will start lining up at 6:oo am to get a half table. Set up at 8:00 and officially opens at 9:00. This is all free! (OK, the table is free. People have to pay for the pipes and other items being sold.) This event will be loud, crowded, and the atmosphere will be thick and clouded. Around noon'ish Pheasant Run will have burgers and other sandwiches for sale.

In previous years, I have seen pipes sell for $2,000 here. I have bought and sold pipes in the $20 - $65 range.

This is our party, so there are some rules. Only half a table is available. If someone exceeds this, he will be warned. If this doesn't work, he will be asked to leave. If this doesn't work. . . Next, only use the tables set up for the event. People need to have a place to eat, or just sit down.

New Event at the 2017 Chicago Pipe Show
The Society of Dunhill Pipe Smokers will hold its first meeting on Thursday at 5 pm in the Pheasant Run Tower, 2nd floor, Ruby meeting room. Doctor of Pipes Gene Umberger will make a presentation on the story of the Society. Doctor Umberger previously published an article, The Shilling Briar, in The Pipe Collector June 2016 edition, that mentioned the Society. At the conclusion of the presentation by Doctor Umberger, all in attendance will be inducted as charter members in the Society and be issued a certificate of membership. ONE LUCKY MEMBER WILL ALSO WIN A HISTORIC DUNHILL PIPE ACCESSORY.

This year we are trying something new. On Sunday, there will be tables available in the area that the Silent Auction used on Saturday. It will be for a half table and at a lower cost than the normal tables. Further details will be available at the show.

Yes, there is a buffet dinner on Friday night. This will be the first time that my wife and son can join me on Friday night. Y'all save three seats for us. I have been wanting her to meet you guys. She has heard so many stories.

The buffet dinner is at 7:00 until 10:00.

This will be my last pre-show post. Tomorrow I will be at Pheasant Run before sunrise. Technically, I will still have access to the internet on my phone, but my daughter won't be there to show me how.

I'd love to sit with y'all for dinner. Does anyone on a strict schedule know what time they'll plan to be there? I'll be on vacation and pretty flexible.

Pipeson and I are aiming for arrival between 2:30 & 4:00.

I will PM my phone number to you, so you can shoot me a text.

I will bring the olive pipe you made (I am smoking it as I type). You can inspect how it has matured.

On Sunday morning, at 8:00, an hour before the show opens, I will be having a Bible study in the tent. Our friend A_Morely selected the passage. This was on 8/1/16. The first person to post what passage I will be speaking on, will get one of the tampers I make. You must be at the study to collect.

This year, I will be providing coffee and pastries through Pheasant Run for the meeting.
I Peter 2:11. I plan to be there.
JoeGoat and myself were there on Saturday because someone (not mentioning any names) can't read. Image

So we will *not* be attending on Sunday as we will be heading out this evening (Saturday)

This sounds like the punchline to a vulgar joke from your people.

My people? Please elaborate.

Do you mean fathers? People from Western Pennsylvania? Avid shotgunners? Members of the defense bar?

Oh. You meant my ethnicity. You are a true son of Tennessee, my boy. All the fake white guilt in the world can't polish the shitkicker out of you.

I think you made a typo, by the way. You meant to say "it looks like the punchline to a vulgar joke people like me tell about people like you."
