Details of the November Meeting
November meeting this year was held on Election Day which I suspect
was the reason for the terrible traffic and lower than normal
turnout. But throw a few guys in a room with some pipes and tobacco
and there will always be a party. A couple of Derek's friends
even stopped in to join in the festivities. The topics of conversation
as you can imagine had to do with politics and the election. Eric
even had his laptop with him and was feverishly refreshing the
election results page every few minutes. I don't think he was
happy with the outcome.
We also received a call from Ernie who was still in the Rehab
after his heart surgery. I am happy to report that he is back
home, doing well and will be coming to the December meeting.
Meeting at the Sportsman's Club ******
We took a vote to hold the December
Holiday meeting at the Sportsman's Club and provide pizza and
soda for those who said they were coming. Since
we're serving dinner, the meeting will start at 6:00 PM instead
of 7:00. Feel
free to bring other beverages if soda is not what you want or
anything else you would like to bring.
As has become the tradition, we will raffle off a few pipes at
our December holiday meeting. With the proceeds from our SHPC
Tobacco Blends, available at pipesandcigars.com,
we can supplement the cost of a few pipes to raffle off. This
year, tickets will be $10 each or 3 for $25. You can buy a maximum
of 3 tickets.
Here are the pipes we will raffle off.
will also continue our tradition of the Great SHPC Tobacco Giveaway,
just to say thanks to all who purchased raffle tickets for tobacco
all year long. One tin to all members who've helped fund our tobacco
raffle this year (and attend this meeting).
Thanks for your support everyone.

SHPC 2013 Club Pipe Update
brought with him the prototype of the 2013 club pipe by Peder
Jeppsen of Neerup Pipes. The pipe was beautiful and everyone seemed
very happy with it. Fourteen orders have now been placed and we
expect to have the pipes for the March meeting. Those
who ordered pipes need to have their money in by the February
meeting. Cash is preferred or a check made out to the Sherlock
Holmes Pipe Club of Boston.
2012 Kaywoodie Holiday Party
The 2012 Kaywoodie Holiday Party will be soon upon us. Currently
there are 50 people confirmed to attend however only 48 will be
able to participate in the smoking contest. If you do not want
to participate in this year's contest feel free to give up your
spot for someone who does. This is a great way to end the pipe
smoking year and we're all looking forward to it. See you there
