2016 Northeast Pipe Smoking Contest and Holiday Party (Kaywoodie Event)

Published on 11/8/2016


2016 Northeast Pipe Smoking Contest and Holiday Party (Kaywoodie Event)


You will not want to miss this end of the year extravaganza! 

To convince you, simply take a look in the Photos section at past year's Events!


Our great friend Bill Feuerbach has announced that once again he will host the 2016 “Kaywoodie Event”, to be held at the same new location as last year, in Fishkilll, NY, on Saturday December 10th.  Be sure to submit your check for $65.00, along with the application found below, which, if you are among the lucky, first 48, will also enroll you into the 2016 Northeast Pipe Smoking (Slow Smoke) Contest, a UPCA sanctioned event, as soon as possible, as it is sure to sell out, and it always does!  Here is Bill's announcement along with all of the details, followed by the application:

It is once again time for the pipe event of the year, the annual HVPC Holiday party and Northeast Pipe Smoking Contest.  As has been our tradition, It will be on the second Saturday in December, December 10th, starting around 1pm at the same venue as the last two years.  For anyone who has not attended before, it is a holiday party with food and drink, a pipe show, a smoking contest and social event with nothing but pipe smokers all over the North East.
Many of you are aware of the new FDA regulations concerning tobacco products.  One of these new rules outlaws/forbids tobacco donations of any type.  Our friends at Lane Limited and Sutliff have told me their hands are tied in this regard, so there will be no tobacco donations for contest prizes.  But what's a contest without prizes.  So we are going to have to purchase tobacco for contest prizes and the contest blend.  Our good friend Paul Bonacquisti has opened the cellar of Park Lane Tobacconist and is selling aged tins to us for his cost.  Most of these tins have at least 5 years of age on them, some as many as 10 years age.  It'll be an assortment of tins from McClelland, Cornell & Diehl, GLPease, ParkLane and Samuel Gawith.  As I said we will have to purchase these tins, so thanks to the FDA, we are forced to raise the cost of the event by $10 to cover the cost of this tobacco.  If we get 50 people, we'll purchase $500 worth of tins.  Anyone who chooses not to be in the contest will get at least one tin of tobacco.
Attached you will find the event flyer.  Please return as soon as possible. For those of you wanting a table for selling pipes and accessories, please include an extra $20 for the table and mark that on your entry form.  These tables are limited so if you wanted one, respond early, like this week:-).  Anybody who can share tables that will help.  If you will be sharing, let me know with whom so I can include a list of exhibitors as we get closer to the event date.
I guess that's it for now.  Looking forward to seeing you all again on December 10th.
Best regards
