2019 Chicago Pipe Show

Post by Winton » Wed Jan 09, 2019 3:05 pm

It is time to schedule your vacation to the Chicago Pipe Show, at Pheasant Run in Saint Charles. The event starts on Wednesday, May 1st. The big show is on Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5. I am predicting that the weather in the Smoking Tent will be cloudy the entire time!

The first event is the Pipe Finishing Seminar, on Wednesday and Thursday. For $125, you will be provided a briar block, with the holes drilled. Several top carvers will teach you how to turn this block into a pipe. Be prepared to spend a LOT of time sanding! There will also be an opportunity for several students to also attend a class on how to drill the holes for the pipe. The cost for both would be $175.

If you are interested, please contact Craig Cobine, at PORSHCIGAR@AOL.COM to register and pay the fees.

It was awesome to meet with you last year. You are doing what God wants you to do. There are people in other places that are really looking forward to seeing you also.

Gentlemen, Do you know someone that has been in the pipe community for at least 10 years, 45 years old or younger and worthy of recognition for their efforts to advance our hobby? If so, please nominate them for Masters of Pipes program. We need nominations for both those who work in the industry, and those who are involved in the pipe smoking / collecting hobby. Perhaps one of our Mods would meet this criteria.

The link below describes the program and the requirements. You make your nomination on this site also.

I've held things in for a couple days past their due date that were comparable to a baby. Weekend winter campouts with nothing but a freezing cold stainless steel seat in a pit pot coupled with the very real possibility of being stuck in place until the next guy came along to save you makes just about anything possible.

Yes! We all want debate the merits of "holding it in" v. "pulling it off"!

So, I take it you're saying this type of masculinity thread is a bad idea. And I had a good poem in mind, too.
