December meeting.

For the December meeting, I was joined by Colin and John (who had both escaped from Christmas shopping lol).

John enjoyed some Mac Baren's Navy Flake, in a no name bent billiard before trying some Dunhill's Royal Yacht in a Falcon.
Colin couldn't stay long so just had time for a bowl of Samuel Gawith's Squadron Leader, in a very handsome Savinelli Oscar.
I started the afternoon with some Peterson's Nutty Cut, in a Peterson Donegal Rocky bulldog before moving on to some Mac Baren's Vanilla Cream, in a smooth Peterson 302 Standard System.

Before the guys left, we had the draw for the smooth Peterson 314 Standard System. Congratulations to Myles for having the winning ticket! Hopefully he will have his new pipe in time for Christmas. Thanks again to Rob Young of Gawith Hoggarth for generously providing the prize. There will be more raffles in the future for tobacco and other goodies.

On a side note. This was almost exactly a year after our first meeting. Unfortunately, numbers haven't grown as fast as I hoped but I am pleased to report that we're still having fun!


  1. Numbers shall grow by 1 for 2012 as i will be joining definitely in January and hopefully in the following months too! All the best to everyone and Merry Christmas!

  2. Was a shame i did not win the pipe but i am sure it has gone to a good home!
    Happy Christmas to everybody and hope to meet a few more of you in the new year.

  3. Hi Guys, who’s a lucky boy, ME. What a beautiful pipe the 314 Peterson is. The colour and grain are cracking. Thanks to the sponsor and the club. I am sending to Peter some tobacco for you guys to smoke at the next meeting, fingers crossed I am not working and will be there, because at the moment I am working most Saturdays not by choice.
    Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a great pipe smoking New Year.
    Quote from Dunhillmanuk on You Tube KEEP THEM PIPES SMOKING THAT’S WHAT THERE FOR.
    awra best fa Myles

  4. For your January meeting, could you ask Mr. Young to send some $%#&( Full Virginia Flake to the damn US, please?
