“Due to some accidental damage to new member application forms from the recent Chicago Show at Pheasant Run resort in St. Charles, IL. we are requesting all those who signed up as new CPCC members during the Show to resubmit their contact information to Club secretary Paul Bender at email@example.com. This is so we can send out the minutes of our monthly meeting to those out of state and/or out of country members who are unable to attend the meetings along with local folks who may not be able to attend all monthly meetings. We apologize for the inconvenience but realize that our members anxiously await the news from our monthly meetings……………or maybe not. Anyway, let us know where we can reach you.”
Please review the document linked below. One of our fellow collectors and eBay sellers had several high grade pipes stolen. We would appreciate any help you could provide in locating these pipes. If you see them for sale anywhere, please reach out to the authorities mentioned in the document.
Smokingpipes.com posted a wonderful blog entry about Lars Ivarsson and his annual attendance at the Chicago Pipe Show. Please be sure to read the tribute posted in the smokingpipes.com blog found here: https://www.smokingpipes.com/smokingpipesblog/single.cfm/post/one-last-gift
I won’t even attempt to write a piece as nice as the one they posted. Please be sure to check out this special pipe during this year’s silent auction on Saturday.
