2013 Northeast Pipe Smoking Contest and Holiday Party (Kaywoodie Event)
Our great friend Bill Feuerbach has announced that once again he will host the 2013 “Kaywoodie Event”, to be held at his pipe making factory in Peekskill, NY, on Saturday December 14th. Be sure to submit your check for $35.00, along with the application found below, which, if you are among the lucky, first 48, will also enroll you into the 2013 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 that time of year again. It’s amazing how fast time flies the older we get. I have been getting numerous phone calls and emails concerning this year’s event so I figured I better get this email out.
In keeping with our tradition, we will once again hold the event on the second Saturday of December. This year that makes the date December 14th, the latest it’s ever been. Hopefully that won't interfere with too many pre-holiday plans you may have. For those who maybe haven't been here before, this event is part Holiday Party, part Pipe Show and part Smoking Contest, the largest smoking contest in the US outside of the National event in Chicago. For many it’s the highlight of the pipe smoking year. I tend to agree. Attached you will find the flyer and the registration form. We did have a slight bump in costs but still worth the amount.
I expect we'll have most of the same exhibitors as last year. Last year we had Steve Monjure, Paul Bonacquisti, Kaywoodie, Andy Camire, Rolando Negoita, Joe Skoda, Tim Hynick, Dr. Bob Keiss and Neil of Smokin Holsters. I'll update the list in pre-event emails if any of these guys can't make it or if we have any new exhibitors. If anybody is reserving a table to exhibit or sell from please email me back how many you'd like. My cost on the tables is $10 for an 8 footer so that's all I'll ask from you. You can add that amount to your registration form and put a note on the form that you wanted a table. Anybody sharing a table let me know who you're sharing with and only one of you send the table fee.
So get the registration form back as soon as possible so we can get a head count for food and pipes. And please feel free to share this email and flyer with any new members of your pipe clubs. Lou and Sean, you can post on any of the boards as our expanded layout allows for more people but of course we'll be limited to 48 for the contest as that's about all we'll have room for in the front office area.

Bill, please enter my name in the 2013 Northeast Regional Pipe Smoking contest. I am enclosing my non-refundable registration fee in the amount of $35.
Happy Smokes, and I hope to see you there,
