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.
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
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.
