That was quite a year! Glad there were no major problems as well. Mine took a lot longer than expected due to my ambition being much great than my talent so I had to make a substitution at the last minute. Other than that, enjoyed every minute of it.

Thanks guys and thanks again to Carlos for running it this year! Terrific job!

Agreed, thanks for letting newbies like myself participate in the event... it was by far the most fun and coolest thing I will do this holiday season. Cool

Extra points and thanks to Carlos, for being both a great Santa and organizing this whole thing with such success. Smile

Beautiful Cobs! Nothing wrong with those. And with the Forever Stems, they should last quite some time.

K.W.
The note on the inside of the wooden box containing the "two" custom cobs and stems is from Santa, saying that he hopes that I enjoy the "two" walkerbriarworks.com pipes and the tobacco (1995) McClelland's "Navy Cavendish". He was so through in his note taking this past year, he remembered that I enjoy rum soaked tobacco. Can you imagine...

Now the problem, how do I put flame to these. Christmas morning the Navy Cavendish (1995) and one of the custom made MM Walker briar works, Diplomat, with metal ring and the "Forver Stem" will celebrate Christmas.

Thanks again Santa.

Nice cob set! I picked up an older 7 day set that had some better than usual bits on them. They make for a superb smoke here in IL this time of year when outdoors. They ignore condensation. You are gonna love that set. santa

That is really cool. Lifetime stems, just replace the factory cob bowls when needed. The only part of cobs I didn't like is the stems. With the forever stems, problem solved. Got yourself a sweet setup there.

Santa rocks santa

That is a sweet set you've got there. I've never been much of a cob smoker, but the idea of an artisan cob has a certain allure...

Well, the big day is here. I hope when Buddy gets a chance, he will pop in with what he received. You gentlemen made it a pleasure to be involved again this year. When I tried the pipe back in the late '70's, and failed miserably. I never imagined that I would quit cigarettes and years later pick up the pipe again. But now the Internet was of age and information on "how to" was free for the reading. Internet forums have their ups and down. They move, they evolve. I try to visit a lot forums. I know some people personally at nearly all. But this one is home. At least as close as any Internet forum could ever be considered a real place.

So Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Carlos santa
