New weekend = July 31 and August 1, 2021

The usual Friday activities are listed on the show flyer. Free dinner. I do not see the pipe making class, but I may have overlooked it. Or it may be added.

Hopefully everything will workout! I booked a room and am planning on attending Thursday through Sunday. Getting vaccinated in time was a concern when I booked the room but just yesterday one county in AZ lowered the Covid-19 vaccine age yesterday to 55 and over so we’re driving two hours to get our first dose tomorrow. :geek:

Good Grief!

So even though everyone will have had the opportunity to get their shots way before then. Because so many are choosing to not vaccinate, our governor may continue restrictions that cannot be planned for.

At least this takes pressure off the other shows. Hopefully next year.....................................

Verbatim from the CPCC Website said:

2021 Pipe & Tobacciana Show Flyer​


With great regret we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Chicago Pipe Show due to the Covid-19 restrictions now issued in place. On Friday March 19, 2021, the Illinois Governor issued a statement regarding the full opening of Illinois meeting places. The predicted timeline is such that we would not know if we could hold a show until some date in July. The financial commitments that the CPCC, show vendors and pipe collectors would have to make in the next few months is a risk that we cannot make. As if that was not enough to cancel the 2021 Show, on Sunday March 20, 2021, the Olympics cancelled all 600,000 tickets held by persons not living in Japan over concerns about foreign travel and restrictions. As an international show we cannot host a show with out our worldwide vendors and pipe collectors. Therefore, we came to the conclusion that it was not feasible to hold our show in 2021.
