***Official 2018 POY Ordering Thread***

Post by ReverendThom » Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:07 pm

Ladies & Gentlemen,
may I present to you the 2018 CPS Pipe of the Year: a Blatter & Blatter Canadian.

Image

Pipes will be stamped with "CPS 2018" and come with a Blatter & Blatter sock (and perhaps some other goodies but he wasn't totally sure).

Cost:
Americans:
$65 USD +
$15 USD shipping
------
$80 USD total

OR
Canadians:
$80 CAD +
$15 CAD shipping
------
$95 CAD total

If you live outside of the USA or Canada please contact me for shipping info.

Payment:

Mr. Blatter does not want to deal with individual payments. I will have to be responsible to collect your payments, and then pay him in a lump sum. Paypal should be the best way to protect everyone. My Paypal info:
Hidden Content
This board requires you to be registered and logged-in to view hidden content.


Ordering:
Ordering is now open and will close on March 31, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. Central Daylight Time
Please PM me here indicating your intention, and your shipping address.
For ease of keeping track of everything, I'd prefer payment when you order. If it's not possible right away talk to me :)
If you'd like to sponsor a pipe for somebody please let me know!

Arrival:
Blatter & Blatter require "about a month" to complete our order.
They will begin working on the pipes near the end of March.
ETA of a pipe in your mailbox is the beginning of May! :chili:
Please remember, although we don't foresee any problems, there is always a risk of theft or loss when having something shipped.


I think I've thought of everything - if you have any questions, just ask.*

Peace,
Mike

I love this pipe! I had a Canadian several years ago and wish I never sold it.

This is my first POY. Thanks for organizing this.

It's very pipe sized with an emphasis on Canadian. They do that to make themselves appear larger. The Canaflationary Zone and all.

You are officially hooked.

Looks like a nice pipe. We just made a huge deposit on our new place (we move soon), so I may be out this year.

Any info on the dimensions and weight though?

I just bought a new pipe, but, this looks like an awesome deal. Plus the idea of a Canadian made Canadian really appeals to me. I will be debating this one up until the 31st.

Don't let the opportunity pass you. This is peer pressure.

Just a bump for those who haven't seen this yet.

Still no word on the dimensions. I'll call on Monday if they don't reply before then.

10 of us and a bunch of fence-sitters. :)

I did not have time to call the shop today about dimensions. We got hammered with a snow storm, and I've been at work since 3:45 a.m.
