PostSubject: Boswell Meet & Greet - Jan '12   Thu Dec 15, 2011 9:35 pm

Some of you Boswell and pipe enthusiasts have expressed interest in meeting at Boswell Pipes & Tobacco in January. I called the shop today and spoke with Dan. He said any Saturday is fine by them and we are welcome for their entire business day, 10 - 4 PM. Dan said they aren't in the workshop on Saturday, but can stay on the floor to answer questions etc. Once we get a date determined, he said to let him know and he would beef up inventory.

So, which Saturday in January works for most of those interested? Please post your preference of:

Jan 7th - my preference, but I'll make any work.

Jan 14th -

Jan 21st -

Jan 28th -

I'll pop for coffee and donuts at the nearby Dunkin Donuts. If the group wants to stay thru lunch, I might even be able to come up with some fried chicken and biscuits from one of my nearby Roy Rogers Restaurants. Although, I've never eaten fried chicken and smoke a pipe!

What are the thoughts of the group?

I'll also be inviting similarly interested folks from the PipesMagazine and SmokersForums groups.

I can probably get a "Friends & Family" rate at the nearby Marriott Fairfield Inn, if you need to stay the night. That goes for anyone.

I'll let dates/replies percolate for a few days, than start narrowing it down.

Any weekend in Jan. will work for me. I stopped in last saturday and got myself a new pipe and over a pound of baccy. It was my first trip to Boswells and I was treated like I had been there a hundred times already. Very warm and welcoming. Nice to see people arent just looked at as wallets.

I just have to keep a watchful eye on the NFL playoffs. My nephew is giving me his Ravens playoff tickets, if there is a home game.

When I passed through there in late Oct. of this year, I stayed at the Travelodge for less than $60 per night which is right across the street from Boswells. (Pet friendly too)

Wish you could have arranged a meeting then. It's too far a drive for me now.

OK so no date as of yet?

May I put in a request for the last saturday of the month. Im in the reserves and and wont be able to make the on the 7th. If we set for the last saturday it will give plenty of time for anyone wanting to come to plan.

Just an idea seeing that its the end of december already.


EDIT: Sorry didnt see a date had been picked, I guess Ill have to wait for the next one. Sad

Anyday after the 19th (my daughter's birthday), although the possibility of snow and driving the PA turnpike are factors that will consider whether or not I can make it. Will try, in any event.

So riff raff do we actually have enough people confirmed to qualify for a legit meet and greet? I actually have no idea what that number might be but I guess it would be like 5 or more. Are we definately on for the 7th?

I'm hoping you can make it John!

I'll stop by Boswells tomorrow, just to check in and let them know about group. I also need to check it it is Ok to bring coffee and donuts. They sell drinks, but don't recall seeing coffee.

They definitely have coffee. Mine was free last time, but I believe it was just their hospitality. The Misses makes some mean cookies, too, I believe...

Good deal, than they should't have an issue with bringing in one of those big Dunkin dispensers & some fat-free donuts, wait - what? <g>

This Saturday at Boswell's sounds good. What should I bring? I have a few hundred tins that folks could try (I'll bring only a dozen or so), though I plan to be sampling Boswells myself.
