I'm very happy to be going to this show, and will be joining the esteemed master blender for Mac Baren, Per Georg Jensen, in presenting a blending seminar. The folks at Sutliff deserve a lot of thanks for opening up their facility for tours and to let the club have its show there, helping to keep the overhead down. If you can make it, I'll be happy to see you!

The CORPS 2019 Pipe Smokers Gathering in conjunction with Sutliff Tobacco is October the 5th and its going to be amazing!!!

Please make sure you read all of the attached updates as there is some exciting news and of course some rules we must abide by!!!

Because of recent changes in Virginia State Law and FDA guidelines you must be 21 years old to attend! No exceptions! IDs will be checked at the door. Don't be offended if you are old (like me) and they ask for ID. They have to check.

Sutliff would really appreciate it if you would pre-register at Eventbrite. It's free, there is no hard commitment, they just want an idea of how many people to anticipate so they can plan the multiple factory tours and blending seminars throughout the day. Also, to get a head count for the free lunch!!! To register click this link Sutliff Tobacco and Richmond Conclave Pipe Show and Factory Extravaganza - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sutliff-tobacco-and-richmond-conclave-pipe-show-and-factory-extravaganza-tickets-60315309715?aff=ebdssbdestsearch This will take you to the Sutliff Eventbrite page, select the date and just follow the instructions there. A day or so before the show, they will send you an email with a time assigned for your tour and blending seminar. If you don't want to do the tour and/or the blending seminar, you can email them back stating that so they can free up your slot for some one else.

Lets see who is helping make it even better...

Best Tobacco Pipes Retailer (#1 Price, Service & Shipping) - https://www.tobaccopipes.com/ are sponsoring the free cookout style lunch of burgers, dogs chips etc. and the main building!...and exhibiting!

Home | Chicago's Pipe, Cigar & Tobacco Store | Iwan Ries & Co. - https://www.iwanries.com/index.cfm are sponsoring the blending seminars and the after 5:30 beer!

Pipe Tobacco - Tobacco Pipes - Smoking Accessories | CupOJoes.com - https://www.cupojoes.com/ are sponsoring the tents and the after 5:30 live Entertainment!...and exhibiting!

Brigham Enterprises Inc - https://www.brighampipes.com/ is adding some treats to the check-in goodie bags from Sutliff that will include come great samples!!!...and exhibiting!

There will be a $5.00 admission fee. Besides gaining entry to a show with vendor tables full of pipes and tobacco you will also have the opportunity to tour the Sutliff Factory and see pipe tobacco production in action. Also, there will be blending seminars with Per Georg Jensen of Mac Baren, Russ Ouellette of Pipes and Cigars and Jeremy Reeves of Cornell and Diehl. You will also get a free lunch of cook out food...burgers, hot dogs, chips etc.!!! There will food truck food available for purchase for dinner and free beer (3 tickets per person) starting around 5:30 after the show is over.

There will be a new Mac Baren release and other fine blends from them and Sutliff.

Now for a wonderful surprise and generous gesture by the fine folks of Sutliff. Seems they found some wonderful aged tobacco in their warehouse and have decided to make up a very special blend limited to this show only!!! They have tinned it up, approximately 300 50 gram tins and will sell them at the show with all proceeds going to benefit the fight against Juvenile Diabetes!!! The limit will be a maximum of 5 tins per person, CASH ONLY and only for people at the show!!!...I can tell you this is a blend that will appeal to everyone so bring some extra cash folks!!!

FYI-there are NO ATM's at the show!!!

That's an incredible team of blenders doing talks. That alone would be worth the admission. Also, I commend the organizers on arranging to have food trucks etc. on site, so people don't have to leave the premises for food, which is often a sap on number of attendees present through the day. Letting people eat always boosts morale. I hope those who are there will report to the rest of us with an update. Great job putting this together.

I am really upset to have to miss this one. After having just grown my first ever garden "crop" of tobacco this summer, I have so many questions about processing it that could have been answered at this event.


I can only hope they do it again some time in the future. It's a terrific opportunity to learn hands-on and kibbitz with folks from all over. Someone take video!

Is all this information online somewhere? I don't see a lot of it on the CORPS website.

McCranie's Pipe and Tobacco will have a table this year. The newest generation in the McCranie family business will be there and lets just say will have some interesting items for sale. Don't bother calling to ask as they will not disclose the surprise.

Please check the Conclave of Richmond Pipe Smokers Facebook page, Sutliff’s Facebook page and the CORPS site listed in my above post.

I am part of the CORPS Show team and it’s going to be a great one!!! Plenty of parking and as long as you are 21 plus you can get in for $5!!! Blending seminars and tours are pretty much booked but you can try and register via the Sutliff link above, they are using EventBrite

Come and enjoy a good smoke with us all.

What an impressive event this is/was. So many vendors and pipers. I wish I had better budget because the selection was incredible.
