Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989

August 2022


Our next meeting will be held on  Tuesday, August 2nd @ 7:00 PM - Massapoag Sportmen's Club

The August Meeting is Crappy Tobacco Night.  Bring in what you don't want/like and share with those that might.



President's Message

Happy Hot July!

Sorry for the short message this month but, I am in the midst of trying to get some work done and pack for St. Paul. One of the buildings I designed is up for a National Residential Design Award and I am travelling to the event. I think I have scoped out a couple good shops in the area and will probably be able to take lots of pictures and report back to the club.

Don’t forget this Tuesday is Crappy Tobacco Month and most of us will meet at Gourmet Garden around 6:00 for dinner.

Short and sweet…That’s all I got!

No presidents raffle this month as we will have to much fun with crappy tobacco.



The Case of the Duplicitous Pallete

by Ernie Whitenack

Case of the Duplicitous Palette

Scott Wadsworth, a Boston Attorney and Special Investigator for the State Attorney, is again pulled into international intrigue by the murder of Patricia Curry. Miss Curry unknowingly sells near-perfect copies of paintings stolen from the Duke Charles Museum at Oxford University.

The only clues to her killer are a money clip engraved with ancient Hieroglyphics and full of US Dollars and Deutschmarks, a boarding pass stub, and a heavily worn ring sporting what looks like the head of a Ram or Goat.

Soon Scott Wadsworth is contacted by Interpol and Agent C33 of the DOJ’s secret investigative unit. Together they unearth a surprising international gang, a relic of Germany’s darker days.

This Month's Tobacco Raffle

This month, we've got one of the oldest blends on the market, along with one of the newer ones.  We'll also be having our "Crappy Tobacco Night".  Pretty much anything is fair game.  Bring what you don't want (sealed, open, bags, tins, jars, dry, fresh - you get the idea).  Maybe you'll leave with a treasure.

Bell's Three Nuns
Bell's Three Nuns
is a spun coin-style tobacco with a wrapper of carefully selected Virginia. The core made from dark fired and burley.  Three Nuns was first blended over a century ago.
