I've been on this forum a little less than a year now, and in that time I've made some great friends, I've learned a ton, and I've even sold some pipes. You guys have encouraged me, enlightened me and helped me continue my passion for pipe making. So, I've decided to say thank you by giving back in one way I know how...by giving away a pipe.

I've done contests here before, but this isn't a contest. There is simply nothing you need to do except be you. I'm working on a commission right now for a BoB'er, and while I'm working on it, I'm also going to be figuring out which BoB member I want to give a pipe to. You guys won't know who it is until the "chosen one" gets his/her pipe and posts pictures of it. When he/she posts pictures, I'll chime in and explain why I've chosen that person.

So, sit tight. I imagine this will take 1-2 weeks total.

Thanks BoB!

Brian.

UPDATE!!!!

I have just created a new thread to announce the recepient of the pipe. You can see it HERE!!!!

This isn't the first time Brian has given away a pipe. In fact, I think he has done it more than 3 or 4 times. This is a huge commitment to the community from a pipe carver. Those hours he puts in making the pipe are worth something. For him to sacrifice time and money out of pure benevolent philanthropy says quite a bit about his character. This community is fortunate to have someone like Brian as a member. I for one know that this kindness wears off.

Three cheers for Brian, the model of an excellent craftsman and also of a man with great character.

cheers cheers cheers

(P.S. I'm not trying to suck up here. I've been on the receiving end of Brian's well wishes more than once already. I'm just trying to inform the community about what a great guy he is!)

Maybe I will team up with Brian, and we can pick the worst, and least deserving forum member to receive one of my pipes...

well, it would be Kyle, so no mystery, kinda takes the fun out of it, nevermind

I think I've received enough brotherly bombs, donations and gifts lately. Don't.

Let someone else be humbled.

Outstanding!

It is hard to explain why I have enjoyed our discussions for nearly a year as well Growley, because the reward is less concrete.... this is a much more tangible example of the community and generosity that has been built.

Thanks for being a true Brother, sir.

This is an outstanding gesture Growley.

And just so you know, I've been the recipient of many bombs in the past (too many, really). So please select another more deserving individual.

I respectfully stand down.


Cheers,

RR

Awesome Brian, very nice gesture. Not only are you Handsome, intelligent and funny, kind to animals, pleasant smelling, a man's man possessing a steely eyed demeanour, but you are very kind and generous too. I'm sure whoever you pick will be very grateful! Wink
