There is never "just one." More often, there is the scooting of chairs to make room for one more!joegoat wrote: ↑Tue Apr 03, 2018 10:21 amI'll be there and I don't bite. I may even wear a kilt to match Del this year. I'm a six two, bearded ginger so I stand out in a crowd. At any given moment, a table in the smoking tent usually has at least one CPSer at it. Just pull up a chair and enjoy some great company!kevinbehringer wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 2:51 pmHello all. New member here and looking for a little advice regarding this year's Chicago show.
I've recently gotten back into my pipes after a 15 year hiatus. I have also gotten more deeply into them and the tobaccos out there this time, so I'm really enjoying the ride.
Given that I only live a couple hours from the Chicago show, I've considered going this year, but a) I don't have any friends who are also pipe smokers to go with and b) I don't really know anyone personally who will be there.
That said, do you have any advice to someone who doesn't know anyone at the show and would like to go? How to connect with people there so it's not just a matter of walking through by myself and leaving? What to expect at the show overall?
Hey, Joegoat! You've lost a lot of weight.... does the old kilt even fit?
I dare you to bring your bagpipes.
AND... I need some help. I dropped my beloved Joegoat Olive, and now there is a crack in the long shank down where it meets the stem. Do you want to take a crack at repairing it?
