So today I've got a little time on my hands and tried to imagine a logo for New Zealand Briar Society. I hope I am not stepping on any toes :wink:

Here are some designs I made:









Which would you prefer?

:puffy:

Nice job on the artwork. Overall I like the last one the best, mostly because the fern is a bit smaller and doesn't compete with the pipe so much. By the way where abouts are you located?

2, 3 & 4 all look good! I’m in for a tee shirt! I’m down in Christchurch every 6 weeks usually on a week days. Maybe we can arrange a pipe club meeting.

Hi kiwiazz74, there are so few of us it may be an very small FB group. This forum is being upgraded this year I believe. Maybe it would be better to wait and see what the new forum page and features look like. Perhaps clubs could have sub-forum boards? Anyway after recent events in NZ I was thinking of chucking in my FB account. I am just about over all the negative BS that funnels into it.

Hey kiwiazz. That’s not a bad idea but there are only a few pipe smokers I know of, perhaps it would bring a few more out of the woodwork. If you are keen to then start a page up and see what happens, could be good to arrange meet-ups from time to time.

Great idea Kiwiazz.

I havent been using facebook anymore for the last 5 years or so but I agree it may attract more kiwi pipe smokers.

Charf, I think the forum will get update come June or something?
Anyway, as I am new in NZ, it is not actually illegal to smoke to smoke in public is it? This is only my second week in Chch and I always get strange looks everytime walking down the streets with my pipe clenched :D

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any experience ordering from smokingpipes.com to NZ?

I saw that their shipping option is quite cheap.

its not illegal to smoke in public but the PC brainwashed anti tobacco folk will throw stones at you for doing it.

i get looks as well i dont care, bugger them, i dare anyone to hassle me to my face about smoking i like to hassle back about alcohol, if i had as many drinks as ive had smokes id be fully dead.

Had to go to Thames yesterday to visit the in-laws. My 2 girls when for a walk up Main Street. At the vegan cafe they saw “an old guy” smoking a pipe with his coffee on their street side tables. They thought it was interesting so they stole a photo of home to show me. Prior to me pipe smoking they probably wouldn’t have noticed. Thought it was quite funny.
