TOPS Emergency Meeting

This is not a drill. Repeat. This is not a drill.

The Ozark Pipe Smokers are holding an Emergency Meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. This is not one of those SEMs (Special Emergency Meeting). An SEM is just an excuse to hang out and smoke. This is an EM, which means there's doings afoot.

On Thursday, we'll be talking about the World Champion Pipe Smoking Contest & Convention being held at Romeo's on October 3-5. You won't want to miss this meeting, because we'll be holding the RAFFLE DRAWING! This will be you last chance to enter to win some fabulous prizes: a Peterson pipe, a box of Saint Luis Rey Gen2 cigars, a box of Partagas 1845 Extra Feurte Cigars, or a one-year locker membership. Raffle tickets are only $1 each and can be used toward whichever prize you desire. All proceeds go toward funding the contest.

Above, you'll see our program cover for this year's contest. Before I get to the itinerary, there's a few things to point out.
First, FREE PIPE AND TOBACCO (for the first 200 who come through the door) to those attending and competing in the World Champion Pipe Smoking Contest & Convention.

Yeah, you heard that right. Just for walking in the door, as long as your among the first 200, you'll receive a free corncob pipe and free tobacco. And if you compete, you'll receive two more pipes! No, I'm not making this up. Yes, you actually can get three free pipes by competing in this contest.

And what's more, we got our keynote speaker! Phil Morgan, president of Missouri Meerschaum, will be giving the keynote address at the convention banquet! For the record, Phil may be the only man alive whose cob collection tops mine (but I'll be bringing mine, just to make sure).

Not that you need it at this point—admit it, I had you at FREE PIPE AND TOBACCO—but here's what else is going on that weekend.
