I tried to start a North Houston pipe club in the Woodlands area. I was corresponding with about 10 pipe guys in the area who were interested, but we could never find a time to meet that worked for all of us. I only ever met up with desolbones . We spent a very pleasant afternoon BSing and puffing at a Starbucks.
My experience with the pipe club is the same as the family reunion in Colorado Springs in 2024.
You set a date and a time without getting a consensus, the people that truly want to get together will. You just have to take the bull by the horns… not a criticism, just an observation on having been there done that.
Wise words indeed Charlie.
