I know that Brian briefly discussed this topic on the first program but I would really like to see this topic revisited. I'm interested in exploring more about pipe clubs. What are some good ideas for getting one going, what works well for attracting others to meetings, how should meetings be structured. Maybe an interview with a president of one of the long standing clubs and what has been successful for their club. I'm personally trying to get a group going and to keep going. We have had two meetings so far and have had eight show up to the last meeting. I want to offer a meetings that will continue to attract more pipe smokers and promote a good environment for people that are interested in taking up pipe smoking. This forum already has a wealth of information that I've already drawn upon, I just believe this will be a great topic to cover to help each community support and protect pipe smoking.
Thanks Kevin and Brian for your continued promotion and support of the pipe smoker's community and for your consideration of this suggestion.
This is something that could benefit some eager people. I wish there was a pipe club around here. Awesome idea!
This is a good idea. I would love to be a part of a club. I havent found any close to me and its hard to have the time (I work crazy hours). It would be a really good way to bring more people into the hobby.
Thanks for bringing that up Macthenife. We'll work on that.
Thank you Guitarguy86 and Hurkman for the supporting the interest.
Kevin, thank you for checking into this. I think it will be beneficial to all pipe smokers looking to gather with others with the same interest.
Here's an article by Steve Fallon (pipestud on ebay) about starting a pipe club:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
-- Thomas Jefferson
I think it is a fantastic, idea. I'm a new pipe smoker, long time cigar smoker, and I'd love the chance to pick the brains of some seasoned smokers. I'm learning a ton from the radio show and the guys at Perettis in Boston, but the benefits of a club would be invaluable.
