A note from Mark Barsness:
Last month’s meeting was great. Good turnout, Wally brought some amazing giant pipes (and that was less than half of his collection), and then all that very old and extremely rare, delicious tobacco from Fernando. Wow !For the August meeting, it has been suggested that, after seeing Wally’s Italian pipes by Ardor and Moretti, that we do another Italian pipe maker meeting. Mark has offered to bring in ‘his’ ABC’S of Italian pipes: Ascorti, Becker, Castello, and Ser Jacopo. If you own any of these pipe brands please bring them along too and be prepared to join in a round table discussion about them. If you have no ABC’S, bring some of your other Italian brands.
Dates and show times for “Father of the Flame” will be discussed.
Ideas for topics and pipe brands for September’s meeting will be entertained.
As usual, please bring some tobacco to share – although it may be difficult to top last month’s selection!
Thanks again Wally and Fernando.
