We are excited to announce that this year’s Club Pipe of the Year is being carved by Marco of Moretti Pipes. The pipe will be a Canadian style pipe dedicated to the memory of Tony Soderman (founding club member who passed away last year). It will have a black acrylic stem (note the photos show a swirled Lucite stem), black rusticated finish, with a smooth rim.
Specs: Length: 6 3/4 to 7 inches, Height of bowl: 1 7/8 to 2 inches, chamber dia: 13/16 in.
The pipe can be purchased by all current club members (in good standing on dues) for $175 with shipping included. More details to follow regarding ordering.
(Photos shown are similar to the pipe that will be carved for the club pipe of the year. Note the differences mentioned above.)
It’s with heavy hearts that we deliver the sad news that club member Tony Soderman has passed away due to complications of recent health issues. Tony was a driving force of our pipe club since it’s inception and served as our club President for many years. Tony was known world-wide for his commitment and knowledge of pipes and pipe collecting, pipe history and developing strong relationships within the pipe collectors community. He will be dearly missed.
Remembrance Planned for Nov 7th
Come join us at the Perfect Ash for a Remembrance and celebration of life for Tony Soderman. Please bring your favorite “Canadian” to smoke and you are encouraged to bring photos and stories of Tony.
Monday, November 7th 5:00pm-10:00pm Perfect Ash 809 Sibley Memorial Hwy. Lilydale, MN
