Holiday scheduling is pushing the meeting to the 2nd Thursday, rather than our usual 3rd Thursday or Wednesday. Venue will be our usual great and generous Pen & Pencil Club. Last month we commemorated our formal connection to the club - Bernie Scally, who passed away at an untimely early age, was on the club Board of Directors. Robert and Elizabeth treated the whole group to a toast of Irish whisky to honor Bernie.
I hope we maintain our privilege to utilize the club. Where else in the city, county, state, country - nay, the world - can a bunch of semi-ruly pipsters (and pipsteresses) sit down indoors, order cooked-to-order (albeit sometimes slow) meals (best value in the City of Brotherly Love), libations from a well stocked bar, all served by a comely wench?
Morley's has been among the oldest such institutions (I use the term advisedly) in this hemisphere, and it has managed to meet every month for at least a couple of decades now. Someone ought to put together a history before we lose all the institutional memory.
Next Thursday, 12Nov, we'll reprise the spoils from the West Coast Pipe Show in Vegas. Woodsroad will have a report on how the launch for the fabulous STP blends went (Bengal Slice; War Horse, aka Warhorse; the John Cottons Smyrna, No.1 Mild, and Nos. 1 & 2 Medium). We'll use the meeting to get organized for the 12Dec NE (KW) Slow Smoke Event in Wappinger Falls, NY - car pools, etc.
