At Big Sticks in Mesa...
We trust that many of you are doing well, and able to find a place to enjoy the pipe during the tail end of summer, fall is right around the corner, and it will be nice to close out the books on another Sonoran summer.
The Pipe club meeting will take place on Saturday the 14th at 1 PM at big sticks, at which we will have our first slow smoke contest.
If you are unfamiliar with what it is about, you can familiarize yourself with the official rules of the UPCA, to understand how it works, but this will not be a sanctioned event for several reasons.
1. The UPCA requires a notification a couple months ahead
2. A briar pipe is required, we will be using the clay pipes that were donated to us by markenpipes.com/
3. 3 grams of tobacco is required, I do not think these pipes will hold 3 grams
4. The rules have 41 articles of compliance which seems somewhat onerous for or first time out, down the road if there is interest maybe we can have a sanctioned event.
We will loosely follow the rules...pretty much article 17-24, and everyone will police themselves about when their pipe goes out and recording their time.
Several people have already received their clay pipes, please bring them, and if you forget to bring it, let everyone else that has not received a clay pipe to get theirs first before requesting a substitute, we have a limited supply and may not have enough for a first time attendee, if we do though, you will be able to participate.
One of our members, Steve the engineer has donated a Savory's Ludlow unsmoked estate pipe, shape 395..
Savory's Brand created in 1885 by H.L. Savory & Co. and taken over by Dunhill.
The pipe tobacco that we will be using will be of a Virginia varietal...Bring your best game!
The Pipe night will take place on Wednesday, September 25th at 5 PM.
Hope to see you there, stay cool!
