A reminder.

Don't forget, there are still raffle tickets left for the Peterson's 314 pipe, £2.00 per ticket, so you could be walking away with a very nice pipe at a very low price! We've also got a selection of tobacco for members to try for free...if you haven't got a spare pipe let me know as I bring a few of mine to meetings (they've all been cleaned regularly so they're ready to smoke) and you are welcome to borrow one.
I'll be picking up a couple of tins, from The Pipe Shop, during the week so there will be a varied selection of blends to try next Saturday.

Another Holmes link.

The Self-Important Scotland Yarders: The Sherlock Holmes Society of Scotland

Knowing how much overlap there is, between pipe smokers and followers of the great detective, I thought there might be some interest in Scotland's only Sherlock Holmes society.

The nights are drawing in.

As it doesn't feel like we've had a proper summer this year, it feels a bit premature to note that it's getting noticeably darker and colder in the evenings.
However, it's unavoidable so I'd like to switch the meetings to a weekend afternoon. If there are no objections, the second Saturday of each month, from 2.30 pm...this will make the next meeting on Saturday 8th October.
Hopefully this should give us a better chance of not needing thermals, hats and scarves for a bit longer!
