Pipe Club Preview

So once again we're preparing to gather, choosing the right pipes, the right tobacco, the right anecdotes. We are rapidly approaching the time each month we set aside time to meet to share leaf and lies with good smoke and better friends. And it seems like a lot has happened since the last time we met.

The Ozark Pipe Smokers will meet at 6:30 p.m. on March 11 at Romeo's Downtown Pipe & Tobacco Co., but all are welcome. This time last month, we were supposed to talk about cellaring tobacco, which seemed increasingly appropriate with H.R. 4439 hanging over our heads. Now that threat is seemingly gone, and we can have our discussion of storing and collecting and aging tobaccos without the overwhelming need to store and collect and age tobacco before the tax hits.
We do still have a raffle for those who signed petitions opposing 4439. Just bring some proof of sending. The prize is a good one, and it's not available anymore, if that gives you a clue.
We're also going to have an announcement about this blog, which I don't think you'll need to miss. Let's just say there might be something in it for you if you contribute.
But, of course, the focus of our meeting will be the fellowship we share with lit pipes and wagging tongues. Good times, my friends. Good times.
