International Pipe Smoking Day is February 20th, 2013.

Do you have any special plans or traditions you are planning on?
Snow, rain, sleet, etc., is anything going to stop you from enjoying a bowl with your brothers around the globe?
I figure this can be a thread to talk about the upcoming pipe smoker's official Holiday and share pics or whatever from your festivities that day (and also a reminder, if you follow the thread, so you don't forget the day).
Here's the official facebook page for IPSD if you are interested : https://www.facebook.com/PipeDay

Count me in, my Brother!

Come rain or shine, I'll be puffing away. That's a Wednesday, and I'll have that day off work.
I'll have to break out a special blend for that day. Cool

I've been looking for a retailer to push out a blend for the day, but it seems Russ is failing us this year. I had hoped for a blend to pop up today so I could try and get it here before then but it seems there is no such luck.

Cool

I store a special tobacco for that day: Markovitch Smoking Mixture. Unfortunately, I have only the last 4 gram in zip lock bag, which will go in Don Floriani Olive wood pipe on that day! Very Happy

Let's see... Last year I managed seven nations' worth of "international" pipes. I may have one or two others to add to the lineup this year.

Is there a Guinness World Record category for most pipes smoked at once? If not, we can create one, I'm sure. That'd be interesting.

Usually I celebrate IPSD with the Northern NJ gang, but this year IPSD coincides with my home pipe club, Christopher Morley's PC in Philly. But I may take the run up to NYC to celebrate with them at De La Concha on the 23rd. Great idea about puffing pipes from different countries. Symbolic for sure.

Don't make us hurt you Kyle.

BTW I contacted Pipes & Cigars they do have a blend coming out for ISPD. Why they release on ISPD is beyond me considering they could release like 2 weeks early and have that be their "official blend" for the day. Any how here is the response from them about the blend:

We do have a good blend coming out this year. it is called Darbyshire but I do not have any information on it yet. It will be released on the 20th though so you will not be able to get it until then.

Plan on it, Les! Peder Jeppesen of Neerup Pipes from Denmark will be joining us and afterwards we'll be heading over to Merchant's East or Circa Tabac, staying until we run out of matches!

Hope to see you then,

Lou

That's a mighty fine idea. If you have never tried it, smoking Erinmore Flake and snuffing Sam Gawith Apricot at the same time is absolutely amazing.

No, but there was someone here who ground up dry Erinmore and snuffed it. Doesn't sound half bad really.

Kyle already made it last year when I posted that pic.
Huh... Seems I still only have pipes from seven countries in my collection. You'd have thought in the last year I'd picked up something else. Oh well.

PostSubject: The CORPS will be celebrating..   Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:52 pm

The Conclave Of Richmond Pipe Smokers will be celebrating IPSD on the eve of ISPD (we're always cutting-edge ahead of everything important in the world!) on Tuesday evening, at Legend's Pub Brewery starting at 6:oo pm. You are welcome to join us there and celebrate pipe smoking, as well as enjoying the best ales in the world, and darn good food! We have the "smoking room" set aside, so we're going to have our own party! We participate in tobacco-swapping - just to let y'all faint of heart know - it sometimes gets to be quite a scene. As well, some of us show off our latest or oldest pipes, much to the concern of those whose PAD is supressed, it likely will arise to ridiculous levels! Join Craig, Bob, maybe geoff (navigating stolid Ned), Iron Mike, Lee (not Robert E. , but a Southern gentleman as well), Bucky, who is a HAPPY man lately (congratulations are appropriate!), Bob Hamlin's lost brother, and many others, with Amanda (oh, Amanda!) smiling (oh, that smile!) and serving. Beside Brown Ale, Legend is now serving Wee Scot and Bourbon Barrel ales!!! Rely on the hearty sirloin burger and the Pulled Pork sandwich to keep you warm - just the thing needed on a cold winter's night. Rounded out with a bowl of rich tobac to complete a fine evening - to celebrate ISPD!

The day is just a few short hours away gentlemen. Can we call for a 7 pipe day? But not all at once like George is going for.

Hey it's your tongue. A man of your pipe smoking prowess should easily be able to have a pipe clenched from sun up to sun down without stopping. Twisted Evil

Working today. Don't know if I'll manage to fit in all seven. Maybe if I count the one I'm smoking right now in the wee hours of the morning I'll be close. I'd actually planned for some logyard time today at work, but the weather's taken a turn for the fierce.
