With everything going on for us so far this year, it looks like Mrs. Gabriel and I will not make it to the show this year. If we do make it, we'd be driving up and back again on Saturday. Hopefully next spring doesn't include major surgery and we'll be there again. I'll miss passing around scotch and tobacco with Skip, Pepik, Wayne, and Del. (and anyone else that makes it, of course)

Relatively new CPS member here. Looks like my wife and I are going to make a 4-day 3-night vacation out of the Chicago pipe show. Arriving Thurs evening, driving back home on Sunday. Unfortunately have to miss the slow-smoke competition, which is a bummer - I would have loved to give it a go.

Would love to meet as many of you as are in attendance! First time attending such a large pipe show for me. Could use someone to show me the ropes as well.

First of all, make sure your wife knows all about the events for ladies. This will ensure that she will agree to make the trip again with you next year! My wife is teaching the ladies craft project on Friday night after the big meal.

Once you are settled in, grab some pipes and tobacco and go to the tent. Then sit down next to anyone that looks friendly. Start talking / smoking. Most people are willing to share tobacco, if you are also offering to share your tobacco.

As you introduce yourself, be sure to mention your handle for any pipe forums that you frequent.
