    [center]It’s that time once again . . .

    for the annual gathering of good friends, good stories,
    good tobacco and good food

    . . . and . . .

    The 2012 Northeast Regional Pipe Smoking Contest

    at the S.M.Frank Company, home of Kaywoodie Pipes
    1000 N. Division Street, Peekskill, NY 10566

    Registration is $30. Due to the large attendance we had last year and the limited space in our front office area, we are going to have to limit the the number of contest participants to the first 48 registration forms returned. Fee includes your contest pipe, tobacco, and buffet. Since pipes will be made according to the number of people who have registered, no refunds can be considered.

    Please fill out the form below, make check payable to Bill Feuerbach, and send both to Bill at:

    Newburgh, NY 12550

    email: smokepipes@aol.com
    phone (at S.M.Frank): (800) 431-2752

    **Please Note***In the event that we receive more than 48 registration forms, we will not turn anyone away. But those received after the first 48 will not be able to participate in the smoking contest, unless one of the first 48 chooses not to participate and relinquishes their spot and the pipe.

    You do not have to partake in the smoking contest but I believe the cost is still $30.00 per person which includes a fantastic Italian Buffet. I attend the event every year and do not enter the smoking contest and my entry fee is that amount.

    Thanks for the info, Doc. I may do that. Although I'm tempted to "compete" in the contest, although I know I'd be out in two minutes.

    Here's the latest from Bill Feuerbach V.P. of S.M. Frank & Co. (Kaywoodie Pipes) in upstate New York.
    I'm really looking forward to this spectacular event, and anyone else interested here is the latest information.

    Gentlemen,

    We are getting closer to the 2012 Holiday Party and Northeast Regional
    Smoking Contest to be held December 8th at the offices of S.M. Frank &
    Co., 1000 North Division Street, Peekskill, NY 10566. Remember, not
    the address where you sent the registration form and check

    As of todays mail, we have 50 people confirmed and registered to
    attend. If you know of anyone who wants to come, please encourage them
    to send in their registration right away. In the list of 50 there are 5 or 6 who will give
    up their spot in the smoking contest for someone who really wants to be
    in it. Also remember we are not closing the doors at 48 people, only
    the number of contest participants. With the expanded layout we went
    with last year we can accommodate 70-75 people, maybe more. So anyone
    who signs up after the 48 spots are filled can still come and enjoy the
    food and drink and a day of pipes and tobacco and pick up a new pipe or
    two and some fine tobaccos.

    The $30 fee helps pay for the Italian buffet, snacks, dessert, imported and domestic beer, wine and soda. If you would like to bring a bottle of something, like bourban or scotch to share, please feel free to add it to our little "bar".. Please also appoint a designated driver if you travel as a group

    Confirmed exhibitors are Kaywoodie, Paul Bonacquisti/Park Lane
    Tobacconist, Andy Camire with estate pipes,
    Steve Monjure with Ardor and Brebbia among others, and pipemakers Tim
    Hynick and Joe Skoda. Still waiting to hear from Rolando Negoita and
    Dr. Bob Keiss, but I'm pretty sure they are coming
    again this year. Dick "Cheif Catoonah" Silverman will also be in
    attendance with some of his tobaccos. I am a pleased to announce that
    Neil Flancbaum of Smokin Holsters will be joining us this year, so if
    you're the market for leather pipe accessories you're in luck as Neil's
    work is of the highest quality.

    Will send out another update toward the end of next week, until then I
    better get working on the contest pipes and order the food

    Best regards,

    Bill Feuerbach

    [/b]***UPDATE #2***[b]

    Gentlemen,

    Just one last update before Saturdays get together. We stand at 54
    confirmed people with a few more who are considering coming that may
    bring the total close to 60. The event starts at 1pm though if you get
    into town a little early someone will be there. The address is 1000
    North Division Street, Peekskill, NY 10566, not the Newburgh address
    you mailed the checks to. The phone number at the shop is 800-431-2752
    should you need to reach me.

    Exhibitors include Paul Bonacquisti/Park Lane Tobacconist, Andy Camire
    with estate pipes, pipemakers Rolando Negoita, Joe Skoda, Tim Hynick,
    Dr. Bob Keiss and of couse Kaywoodie. Steve Monjure will have Ardors
    and Brebbias amoung other things and Neil "Smokin Holsters" Flancbaum
    will be there with his leather goods. And I believe Dick "Chief
    Catoonah" Silverman will be bringing some of his tobaccos. There will
    also be a table of pipes and tobacco being sold by
    members of the Hudson Valley Pipe Club. I also encourage guys to bring
    pipes for trading, remember the old days of the pipe shows when the
    trade was just as exciting as purchasing a new pipe?

    I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag as to the tobacco or pipe
    shape for the contest but I can say this, the tobacco is one that has
    been in the news this year and the stummels used to make the pipes are
    at least 25 years old and came from a source in France, so they may
    very well be Algerian wood.

    Our menu for dinner is Salad, Eggplant Parmagina, Baked Ziti, Fettucini
    Primavera, Steamed Broccoli, Meatballs, Sausage and Peppers, Chicken
    Scarppiello, 6Ft of Italian Combo Hero, Dinner Rolls, Cake and Cookies.
    Beverages provided are Beer, Wine and Soda. We'll also have the
    usual munchies for the afternoon. And again if anyone wants to bring a
    bottle of spirits to add to our little "bar", please feel free to do so.

    Should be a great day as always. Weather forecast is for some rain,
    but mild enough temperatures to keep it as rain and not snow. Look
    forward to seeing everyone Saturday.

    Best regards,
    Bill Feuerbach

    My thanks to everyone for a really terrific day! It was great to meet you all, and the contest was a lot of fun. Having placed tenth at 33:20, I kind of feel like Michael Phelps.

    Can't wait for next year!

    Al - those wonderful KW limited editions were being offered by the carver, Bill Feuerbach himself. Last year there were several more boxes too. And he was discounting them a bit, and takes CC.
