For those interested to find out how you would have compared to the contestants in this months slow smoke contest, here are the results.
For the contest, we smoked Angler's Dream, a burley-based blend modeled by Russ Ouellette off the classic Over the Counter blends. It's a tasty blend, but it was never intended to be kept lit as long as some contest blends. If you really want to see how you would have done, you have to smoke it. You get two matches and two minutes to light it, and then the fire's on its own. Your time ends when you can't produce smoke anymore.
Of those who were at our regular March meeting, six entered, paying a $5 entry fee, with the winner taking all. Second prize was an International Pipe Smoking Day shirt.
And without further ado, here are the standings.
1. Tommy - 26 minutes
2. Neal - 20 minutes
3. Johnny - 16 minutes
4. Frank - 15 minutes
5. Jeff - 13 minutes
6. Allam - 9 minutes
