Pipe smokers around the world have been asking the CORPS to bring back the annual “Pipe Smokers’ Expo” - and, believe it or not, we have been missing our annual conclave, too - longing to see our friends, smoke our pipes together, and meet new pipe smokers. It was difficult to find a place that incorporates our requirements, foremost being able to enjoy a smoke in a casual and relaxed atmosphere (a tradition from which the CORPS would not waiver), have a cup of coffee, perhaps a libation, all while trading pipes and tobaccos and carrying on with all the joys of pipe smoking. That location has been found and so . . .
The CORPS proudly announces

Wow, that is fantastic news! The show ended after only three years of my attendance. At a 3 hour drive, this was the closest show to me. The venue sounds like the right move as well! Date is definitely bookmarked!

This is awesome! That's about a 3 hour drive for me! I missed my local pipe show here in Raleigh by like a week when I finally saw an advertisement for it. I'm putting this one down on my calendar for sure!

Less than a week away to the first CORPS Gathering and its is SOLD OUT of tables! Check out some of the vendors and folks who will be there!!! We look forward to seeing everyone and sharing a smoke together on September 29th.
We invite all pipe smokers to the Gathering to find a favorite pipe, check out the blends of pipe tobacco that major blenders from around the world will be representing and to meet old and new friends there"
Due to unfortunate circumstances the lunch counter will be closed, but lots of restaurants within a few blocks.
Don't forget the Sutliff has decided to join in the fun and are putting on their inaugural FACTORY TOUR EXTRAVAGANZA on Friday 9/28!!!
Remember pipe smoking is encouraged at both events!!!
