For you fellows that were asking about the Triangle Area Pipe Smokers Annual Pipe Show, everything has been finalized. The issue with being able to smoke at the state fairgrounds and in a state run facility have been worked out.

This is the 11th year of the show and the 6th year billed as a Pipe & Cigar Expo.

Date: April 19th (Saturday)
Time: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Place: North Carolina State Fairgrounds, Holshouser Building (Village of Yesteryear). Raleigh, NC at the corner of Hillsborough St. and Blue Ridge Rd.

There will be: Pipes, Pipe Racks, Smoker's Accessories, Collectibles, Tobaccos, Cigars, Pipe Carvers and other Artisans, Hourly Raffles, Food Concessions, Door Prizes for Pipe and Cigar Smokers along with much much more. There will be a silent auction for several pipes, six have already been secured with one being the P&T Magazine Pipe of the Year. This year will also feature the 2008 Professional Pipe Carvers Contest.

Exhibitor Tables will be $80 each.

The TAPS show is one of the best shows in the South!

For more information or to secure a table or tables at the show please email me (Mark Hale) hale-mark@aramark.com or pipechief@nc.rr.com . If you would prefer you may also call me at (919) 730-1455

I will gladly mail anyone interested in a table at the show a contract.

I will also follow this up with a post concerning hotel accomadations in the area that allow smoking. We have special rates with three hotels in the area that allow smoking.

Smoke well, it is the greatest revenge!

Mark Hale

P.S. Look for the full page add in the upcoming issue of P&T Magazine!

DARN IT!! I am traveling that day. I REALLY wanted to make it... sigh... I am also traveling for the next TAPS meeting (not to mention for the last 3 TAPS meetings). I need a job that keeps me put... Another time then, perhaps. Sad

A little pre-show teaser of the Brissetts that will be offered at the upcoming TAPS Show.

Phenomenal 360 straight grain with some of the tightest and prettiest birds eye that I have ever seen. Mike wouldn't admit it, but this is a very high grade pipe and the photos don't do squat for it. You have got to see this baby in person!



When you hold this most beautiful freehand visions of Hobbits and Elves begin to come to mind, is the only way that I can describe it. Incredible high grade freehand!
