In case you didn’t know already, we sell our empty cigar boxes which can be used for everything from a convenient place to put your bills to a jewelry box to the body of a handmade guitar. All proceeds go to the United Disability Service Fund so everybody wins! Come on down and see our many sizes and shapes, colors and types of cigar boxes. Most boxes between $1-$5 dollars.
If you have never been or it has been a while this is a great time to join us.
You’re invited to meet Max Stokkebye, a 5th generation tobacconist, and learn more about the variety of blends and flavors of pipe tobacco. He will be bringing several fine pipe tobaccos to sample.
There will also be a pipe tobacco blending contest. If you choose to be in the blending contest there will be a $20.00 entry fee.
Only those who choose to be in the tobacco blending contest pay the $20.00 entry fee.
Pipe maker and restorer Tim West will be bringing a diverse collection of his pipes and his knowledge of pipes to share with us for the evening.
To top it all off, the President of the North American Society of Pipe Collectors (NASPC), Jeff Knoll will be here.
The evening started with a conversation about the term “aromatic” tobacco and what it actually is means. We learned that “aromatic” tobacco has different meanings in different parts of the world. Very interesting. We then discussed what Cavendish tobacco was and how it is produced. A very educational half-hour. To show our appreciation for Erik Stokkebye from 4th Generation for taking the time to come to our Pipe Talk we all signed a Thank You card to him. Next we had an interesting new tobacco sample; Pumpkin Pie Spice. A good time was had by all.
For the first time since we have started our Fish Pics page we have not been able to come up with one winner this month. So, instead we have 2 WINNERS FOR SEPTEMBER! Our winners are Mike at Portage Lakes and Eusebio at Wallace Lake. Congratulations guys! Due to the fact that we had a tie they will each receive Plano Tackle Boxes (we only had one Lure Locker). We had 16 photos sent to us in September (you can see them on our Fish Pics page). Thanks to all who sent in their pics and keep those fish pics coming!

The evening started with Craig introducing our special guests: Erik Stokkebye from 4th Generation Tobacco and Paul Height from Ventura Cigars. We then had a presentation from Erik Stokkebye about 4th Generation Tobaccos and the significance of the dates for each tobacco and details about them. He then discussed the creation of a Stokkebye/ Tobacco museum to be created in Denmark. He finished his presentation with some interesting history of some of the pipe makers in Europe and pipe making in general. It was a fascinating and informative talk. We then had raffles for tobaccos, ashtrays, cigar travel cases, and Comoy’s pipes. Our entertainment for the evening was Pastor Mark. We all enjoyed his guitar playing and singing. Although Paul Height of Ventura Cigars did not give a presentation he is “A Pretty Big Deal”. Then, as always, people hung out and smoked, looked around, talked to one another, shared some knowledge to the newer smokers and a funny story or two. We want to say a very heartfelt Thank You Very Much to Erik Stokkebye and Paul Height for taking the time and making the effort to share their wonderful products and knowledge with us. A great time was had by all.
