I jumped in too. I normally shy away from these things but it seems like a great cause.

It's cool, a loophole allows pipe people that find other pipe people unrelated to doing some cool sh*t out there can post about it if they want without worry... I had your back unwittingly a day later, TT.  Laughing  I love you

Hope the fundraiser goes well.  cheers

Cool

More fundraiser news - I'm going to be closing it up tomorrow, so if anyone else wants to get in a ticket, you have till tomorrow after lunch! I'll be driving over to Pipe & Pint to shoot a little video of the drawing. Pipe & Pint IS going to be tossing in some extra prizes but they're still sorting out what, so I don't have an official list.
Here's the donation link once more:

I don't have an exact total but it's well over $1000 so far. I'm pretty amazed at the turnout. All I was hoping for was maybe $300 so he could catch up on back rent and not be thrown out on the street. A grand still won't go all that far in this day and age, but at least it's a boost applied at a crucial time. I'm hoping it will be enough of a lift, both financially and emotionally, that he can take it from here. I know how wearing it can get when it feels like you can't catch a break... and can't catch a break... and then your car breaks down. Mad

Thanks very much to all of you for helping out! Annnnd... now you get to watch me make a fool of myself on video Laughing

As threatened, I went by Pipe & Pint this afternoon and, with Emily as our faithful cameraperson, Pete Pike and I made a video of the raffle drawing for everyone who helped out with our fundraiser this week. Pipe & Pint pitched in with a pipe stand, a valet, and some tins of good tobacco as secondary prizes to the Ligne Bretagne Dublin that was the main prize. If you want to see if you've won something, or if you just want to see me being a doof, here are the videos...

Part one includes a big Thank You from the young fellow we did all this for, and general goofing around, plus the drawings for all the Pipe & Pint prizes:



Part two is the drawing for the Ligne Bretagne that was the main prize:



Emily and I will get everything boxed up and ready to go over the weekend, and the prizes will all ship out Monday. Thanks, once more, very much to all of you who helped out with this!

Trevor, if it isn't too much trouble could you please post the details of the drawing? I can't get vids on my computer.

TIA
