. And COOKIES!
The last two members I sent COOKIES to developed issues shortly after they arrived.  One has since recovered, and the other mysteriously vanished.  Obviously, it has something to do with white chocolate macadamia nut ones, but I have concerns.  I might have to see if three is a charm.  Oh, BH, you missed supper.  Red carrots, potatoes, Crimini mushrooms, and garlic in a chicken cream sauce with a bit of Andouille sausage, with filet basted in an apple Basalmic/Zin reduction.

You guys in the states have the most wonderful Christmas Spirit, kinda makes me wish I lived over there with you guys so I could be a part of it all, well, the most I could offer would be a handmade pipe so probably wouldn't be enough any way so it's just as well I can't play really. Here's to wishing you all a wonderful time with this, you guys amaze me with your brotherly/sisterly love for one another, you guys are the best and I am honoured to be able to at least be on the same board as all of you, BRAVO. cheers cheers cheers

We are up to 33 players.


And yes, the tobacco Nazi's have made shipping to other countries difficult with the VAT which can be in some cases, many times the value of what was sent.

When the Bombers hit Greyson in the UK this year we restricted sendings to non-tobacco items...and/or guys ordered tobacco from etailers within the UK, paid the freight so to speak, and had it delivered within the country which allowed them to not inflict any fees, etc. onto the recipient. It seemed to work fine. But considerable time was spent in researching regs, etc. and very tight guidelines were published. The overriding goal was to avoid causing the target to have to pay any out of pocket fees to the evil taxman. So it CAN be done, if each and every participant on this side of the Atlantic follows the protocol closely. Just sayin'.

And if they open the box for inspection...and they open a high percentage, which is why it takes 2+ weeks average through customs...the person you're sending to is screwed. And YOU could be charged with mail fraud etc., etc., etc.

They've opened about 1 out of every 5 I've sent to a friend of mine in the UK over the last 10 years (no tobacco, usually American candy and non-gluten baking stuff she couldn't get until recently). I wouldn't risk it myself

Wow! Sounds like an Inuit dance chant. I can just hear the sealskin drums in the background. It might just be Randy and Cee Lo. Very cool. Very vogue. Very, um...er...Tribal! Yeah, that's it.

Just over a week before we start.  I have already placed a nearly 5 pound order with one of the etailers.  Just in case, you understand.  We got a pretty nice crowd, and I have a bit of time scheduled to handle the drawings.  So remember, sometime on November 10th I will sit down, do the drawings, and then start sending PM's with the information.  Help me out by checking your PM boxes often on the 10th.  My outbox will fill up quick.  When you guys read your PM, that will free up more space for me to send more PM's.  Be sure to free up space in your own message boxes so my message to you does not get stuck in my outbox.  Inboxes, outboxes, saveboxes can only hold so many messages and you have to delete something to free up space.

Also, I heard that the initial shipment of Gaslight to Smoking Pipes got cleaned out by a fat man in red britches.  So he's at it already!    Heard he really put the hurts on the 1792 Flake.  And was a bit distraught that there was no Cob Plug.  santa 
I have checked my inbox 217 times today... just to help you out of course,
