Details of the December & January Meetings
Our December holiday meeting was held at the Sportsman's club this year. We enjoyed pizza, soda and just a wee bit o'Scotch before heading down to the gun range for some target practice. Ok so I and anyone else that imbibed in the libations were not allowed to handle any weapoins but Eric, Bob and Derek's entorage (all of which are of legal ages even though they don't look it) all tried their hand at shooting and I'm pretty sure the girls out gunned the boys.
After dinner and before gun practice we had our holiday pipe raffle and tobacco give-a-way. We had a lot of nice tobaccos to choose from and I believe most people were happy. We also had three happy pipe winners, Eric won the Tsuge, Bob won the Nording and Tony won the Vauen. Contratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone else for helping to support the tobacco raffle all year.
We were also very happy to see Ernie back after his heart surgery. He brought his son Eric with him to for a little support and to enjoy in the festivities. He looked great and seemed to be recovering well from his ordeal. Welcome back Ernie.

January Meeting
The January meeting was delayed a week due to the New Years holiday and because of the schedule adjustment we had to meet in the cool basement meeting room. Turn out was a little low in January but we were happy to see one of our regulars from the Mansfield days Rich "Decoy" Levine, back for a visit. It was good to catch up with him. Would like to catch up with a few more of you old timers. Why not stop by for a visit.

SHPC 2013 Club Pipe Update
The 2013 club pipes are well underway and Tim and I plan to pick them up at the end of February. So they will be available at the March meeting. There was a possibility that there would be a small additional cost for the stamp but Peder agreed to use our SHPC stamp and put the 2013 with his own stamps. The numbers may not be 100% straight but it will give the pipe a little character. I'm sure they'll look great.


Pipe Smoking in the Movies

I recently rented the movie Red Tails. It's a story about a squadron of black fighter pilots trying to prove themselves in the war. Cuba Gooding Jr. was one of their commanding officers and smoked his pipe prominently throughout the movie. I enjoyed the movie, it has a good story and definitely worth watching (even if there wasn't any pipe smoking in it).

Below are links to the PipesMagazine Radio Shows that aired since our last meeting.

2012 Kaywoodie Holiday Party and UPCA Northeast Regional Pipe Smoking Contest.
For the past 10 years or so we've attended the Kaywoodie Holiday Party which is generally the highlight or the pipe smoking season for many of us. The event has grown so much over the past few years and it just keeps getting better. Here is a photo montage of the last event. I hope you enjoy it.
