THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
Hello club members,
Many thanks once again for the honor of electing me President. As in the past I shall uphold my office to the highest of standards and do my best for the betterment of the club and its members. As always I look forward to working with the new slate of officers and committee chairs as well. Collectively we can continue to grow and experience true fellowship for years to come.
For those of you that were at the IPSD gathering at the Humidor in Warwick you may remember an interest in starting an associate club there. I would love to see a chapter in every smoke shop in the New England area and beyond if possible. Well as of last week the interest is still very strong and the owner Jana may be joining us this month to observe our procedures and how we go about holding our meetings. I feel we have a pretty good recipe for success and can be easily adaptable for any group who would like a charter club. Let’s hope she can make it and we can get them set up.
Because of the elections last month, we didn’t get a chance to do the “Members Favorite” tobacco tasting. We paused it until this month and Tom Nyzio has volunteered to bring in enough of his favorite tobacco for us to blind taste and comment on. I just hope it’s not Escudo! So remember to bring and extra pipe for tasting and lets see if anyone can guess the blend.
April showers bring May flowers so anyone who smokes an exotic shaped pipe like a flower or a face or any kind of bizarre shape shall receive a ticket for the Presidents raffle.
See you next Tuesday,
