The meeting is Tuesday, 1/20 at the Up In Smoke in Lewisville - outside of the Vista Ridge Mall; 7:00 pm. There is no official membership or dues - I do all of the work and enjoy it greatly. We have a monthly raffle as well as discussions, occasional theme nights, discussions, etc.This meeting is supposed to be "Italian Pipe Night"; sort of a voluntary show and tell.There are 2 pipe makers in the club - Myself and Bob Gilbert. Looking forward to discussing your interest at the next meeting. Check out my web site www.shurewoodbriarpipes.com for more information as to my work.Bob also is a fine pipe crafter and I am sure you will enjoy seening his work also - he usually brings a few with him to the meetings.Regards,Colin Rigsby

Just wanted to say hello, as a new member here.
I live in Dallas, Texas and have been smoking a pipe off and on for six years.
I have also been an avid reader of Pipes and Tobaccos magazine for quit a while, a great
magazine to read if you have not already became a subscriber.
One of my main interests is learning how to make pipes. I hope there are some here that may
already make pipes and could be of some help.
I look forward to meeting everyone at the next local meeting.
Its good to know there is a local group here, as it has been a challenge to meet a pipe
smoker even at the local tobacco shops I have visited.
Happy New Year to all here, I'll be setting back and smoking my pipe as the New Year is
