ATTENTION, ATTENTION!!! Kaywoodie Event UPDATE:
As per Bill Feurebach, please note the following regarding the Holiday Extravaganza scheduled for this Sat. at 1:00pm - again, I say, DON'T MISS IT...
A quick update on this Saturdays event. We are currently at 55 people
registered. I think this will be a final number but there may be a
straggler or two. The event officially starts at 1pm but members of
the HVPC will be there by 11:30am for exhibitor set up.
We will have quite a few vendors at the event. Pipemakers Rolando
Negoita, Joe Skoda, Paul Bonacquisti, Tim Hynick and Kaywoodie. Neil
from Smokin' Holsters, Neal Yarm with his unique pipe stands,
Pipes2Dream, estate pipes from Andy Camire, Pete Rothenberg, Sam Weeks, Vernon Vig, Sean Noonan, Dave Ruth, Hank Saatchi, Howie Rothstein, and Dennis McMahon. Sean and Dennis will be selling pipes, racks and tobacco from Dick "Chief Catoonah" Silverman's estate for the family. So if your looking for a holiday gift for yourself there will be plenty
to pick from. A few guys can take credit cards and possibly a check,
but most on the list will be cash only so plan accordingly.
With the change in venue, we had to change caterers this year, but we found a local guy who comes highly recommended. Our menu will be similar to previous years with Chicken Marsala, Sausage & Peppers, Meatballs, Penne alla Vodka, Pasta Primavera, Eggplant Parm, 6 feet of Hero, rolls, and Ceasar Salad. There will be the usual snacks before dinner. Cake and cookies for desert. Beer, wine and soda is provided.
This year we are trying something new as far as the beer is concerned. We will have two sixtels (1/6 of a keg) of beer on tap from Newburgh Brewing Co. A local brewery with some excellent craft beers. We will have Newburgh Brown Ale and East Kolsch on tap. Check out their website for descriptions on the beer. www.newburghbrewing.com
Many of us know that a good scotch or bourbon pairs nicely with a bowl
full of tobacco. We do have a community "bar" for these tasty
beverages, but it is not included with your entry fee so if you think
you'll be drinking some, bring some to donate and share:)
As indicated in the registration flyer, the event is at the Southern
Dutchess and Putnam Sportsman's Association located at 378 Cedar Hill
Road, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590. (Some GPS's may identify that street
address as Fishkill). But the directions are easy off of Route
84, Exit 13 (Route 9). Take Route 9 North approximately 1 mile to
Route 52. Take a right at the light onto 52 East. Slightly more than
a mile will be Cedar Hill Road on your left. Turn left onto Cedar Hill
Road and the Gun Club will be about 1.3 miles on the left. The outdoor
gun range is open Saturday so you will here gunshots during the day. The clubhouse building is cozy with lots of mounts on the walls and a fireplace that will be burning during the day. And a ceiling exhaust fan will keep the air moving so the smoke is not too overwhelming.
The weather forecast as of now shows a dusting of snow Friday night but so far Saturday looks OK, improving during the day even. Nothing like last year:)
So I hope to see you all there and hopefully the new location works out for everyone.
If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me.
