The TAPS Show is in the bag and it turned out to be one of the best shows to date! The venue at the new fairgrounds facility was incredible and the turn out went way beyond our expectations!!!

The BoB was very well represented and it was just awesome to see and get to hang out with so many of the brothers. I apologize for not getting everyone in the photos (some by choice) but I did manage to get a few.

There were the usual suspects and a lot of new folks as well. I will let the photos speak for themselves.

Ol'Dawg (Jim), TallSmoke (Joe), Justpipes (me), Alfredo Buscatti (Mike) and Adauria (Andrew).


We didn't get aaronbtxnc (Aaron) in the group photo but here he is below working a sell at his table.


Lawdog (Robert Lawing) was working hard!


I regret that I didn't get a photo of FTRPLT (Byron) but he is going to be in town long enough to attend the TAPS Meeting Tuesday, and one way or another I will get a photo of him to add, that is if his wife doesn't beat him up too bad over the 100 lbs. of tobacco he bought at the show! Laughing Laughing Laughing BronxBill (Bill) Was also in attendance but regretfully I didn't get a photo of him, but that was probably because he was so excited about his new Brissett that he ran out the door too quicly to smoke it! Laughing I'll get him at the TAPS meeting too if he shows up!

Ol'Dawg working the table!


Walnut sampling station.


Another conversion!


For the sake of space and time I have thumbnailed the rest of the photos that include SmokingPipes.com, Lawdog's Pipes, Pipe & Pint, McCrainies, James Island Piper (Don Seatter), The "Charatan Man", Steve Monjure, Bob Hayes and many others that were too many for me to keep up with. There was an awesome collection of pipes from the lowest to the very highest grades and a huge amount of tobacco offerings!

So who had the old tins? Those look like possibly Laurel Flake or MacCraigan's Flake.

That should be Murdock's Pipe.

Looks like a great time, Mark! Your hard work is good for pipemen everywhere--thanks for it.

Wish I could've made it down.

There are two tins of Tribute on there also.

I had a great time. The new venue was terrific, covered porch with tables and benches for smoking; plenty of display space. In spite of my best intentions, I bought another pipe; a Mike Brissett volcano, I am soooo weak. I'll try to upload pictures later.

It was nice to meet so many of the BOB members; it's always good to put a face to a name.

It was a great show. The only pipes that were screaming my name were out of my price range for now, so I held it together and just picked up a few tins of tobacco from C&D. I did enjoy seeing the BoBer's that were there. Always a pleasure, gents.

I then went to see my buddy Jim who tied me up a bunch of April flies for the trout streams around the mountain house. I'm heading up there now. See you boys in a few days!

It was as much fun as it looks. It was truly great to meet so many of you guys. I wish I could have stayed a bit longer and had a smoke with you, but a 5 year old waiting to go to a friend's birthday party is like a ticking time bomb Smile

Still, my next major accomplishment (after meeting all you folks) was scoring that sweet Brissett pipe along with 13 tins to keep it well filled. I thought I was going to resist the Brissett and find something else, just to keep more diversity in my stable, but man there was nothing like it at the show for anywhere near it's price, at least not for me. As they say, you don't choose the pipe - the pipe chooses you.

Like everybody has already said, it was a great venue and great show. The TAPS club really outdid themselves this year! You couldn't ask for a more friendly, caring and helpful bunch of guys. It was great being able to see the BoB brothers again and meet a few new ones too. Sure wish Dover, Winslow and Eric could have made it the show. Many thanks to Andrew and Bill for removing the temptation from the two Brissett pipes I would like to have added.

Jim...anxiously awaiting next years show.

I really wanted to attend this (and even help the TAPS guys out wherever I could), but I completely forgot about it. Crying or Very sad

Hopefully next year!
