Club pipe?

I've been thinking about seeing if we can get a club pipe commissioned. Limited edition, classic shape and hopefully reasonably priced!
Does anyone have any preferences, such as: bent/straight, smooth/rustic?

If we can order about a dozen, Peter Ellam of Invicta Briars has quoted me a very reasonable price on something from his Classic Briar range, let me know if you have any preferences. He will be able to stamp the pipe with "EPC 2013" (giving us the potential to get a new club pipe every year lol).


Proposed programme and timetable for British Pipe Smoking Championship 2013.
DATE:- Sunday July 21st.
VENUE: Newark and Nottingham Showground.
12.00hrs. Exhibition opens. Registration table opens. 14.00hrs. Registration closes. 15.00hrs. Start of competition. Prize giving shortly after termination of contest.
Cost of entry:- �40.00. ( Entry to exhibition:- Free )
Licensed bar close by: tba
Catering facilities:- to be announced later.
It would be great if we could have a team representing EPC this year, so please contact me asap to register your interest. Numbers for the competition are being limited to 45 so don't leave it too late.

Further details can be found here.

Four of us marked IPSD at Henrick's on Wednesday; Scottish, Polish and English pipe smokers enjoyed baccy from Ireland, Denmark, USA and England in pipes from Guernsey, Italy, France, Ireland and UK...I think that definitely qualifies as "International"!
