I think we need to have a National Convention or convocation on an annual basis. I know a group of people who get together every year specifically for the purpose of speaking latin with one another. They meet for about a week and speak conversational latin the whole time. Similarly, we could meet and talk about just about anything, but we have to do it while smoking. Anyone for seconding the motion?

They call it 'The Chicago Pipe Show'.

Yes I was wondering about that myself. Why exactly does the seeming entire profile have to appear in every post? Surely that should remain in the profile page rather then in the forums. Still. I don't think any sequoias were felled to display this page.

Like my mother-in-law used to say,
"Don't make me no never mind."
Just sayin'. Smile

I think, and I may be wrong, that the Pipes/Tobacco section was intended to be somewhere along the lines of your favorites.. Like so

Pipes: A registration era Stanwell Canadian, Castello Searock Bent Billiard

Tobacco: Penzance and other heavy English.



Anyway, Chicago has turned into more than just a weekend to buy/sell wares... For all intent its hit the week long mark, with everything from fancy diners, meet & greets, carving seminars, The Smoke Tent (which seems to have turned into a place a man could happily spend a lifetime, a Valhalla for pipers? ) And about a 1000 other things to do...

Plus there's other 'shows' that are starting to follow suit...
Columbus Oh, Richmond Va, New York, Kansas City, and the Northern California show are all exciting with plenty of good food, good company, oddles of 'Pipe Celebrities', plus a couple truck loads of pipes/tobaccos/tampers/lighters/etc... I think if you attend one you'll get your 'Convention' bug sated.

Besides pipe shows, I always thought of this board as an ongoing convention of pipe-fellows. Like the Gospel according to Prince Albert says, wherever two or more of us are gathered... We smoke, we talk shop, we show off new finds, we engineer trades... It's not the same as face-to-face, but it's pretty good for keeping the pursuit of tobacco and briar alive. (And you can't beat the cost of attending or the schedule.)
