    I'm already kicking myself for not participating in 2011 - don't have to rub it in.

    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    He's still got the order page on his website, so it might not be too late yet...

    Oh, trust me, John. I've seen that plenty of times on his website. But if I had ordered it back then I could have easily slipped it by the warden - things have changed at the Geek household, I tell ya... not so easy these days.

    Get a PO Box, that's what I did. Slip stuff in the house now via work laptop bag! Shame the steps I had to resort to!

    Yeah, but what to do with those damning credit card statements? Now, if I took $200 in Safeway gift cards (SCRIP for my daughters school), I wonder if they'd let me pay in those? Hmmmm, may be a good workaround...

    Sorry, we're derailing the thread - back to group pipe discussions.

    guys we can go the name brand road such as a mass produced peterson's ect. But how special would it be? Not much imho. If we help out an indie pipe maker with a large order then we as a community would be doing the hobby itself a service. But business is business and we need to be given a good deal; after all it's a large order with a pipe with the same shape and just different finishes. Also it's not like we are going to order 50 pipes and demand it in 2 weeks, they would be trickled in as people get their money in order.

    I agree with Ben...I'd much rather get a handmade pipe than something mass produced.

    I doodle pipe shapes in Paint sometimes. Here's a quasi-LOTR thing I was thinking about the other day. It's got a deep bend like an Oom Paul, but with a canted Dublin bowl. It'd be a chin hanger that's effortless to clench. Just another idea. I'm sure I'll post a few of these.

    Any man who checks his watch while smoking his pipe is doing it wrong.

    Comments on the suggestions so far:

    1) I agree that going with an 'indie pipe maker' (nice term!) makes the pipe a lot more special than getting a Peterson or something.

    2) I don't like the 'carve your own' idea at all. I mean, it's a nice idea to try, but not for a club pipe.

    3) Personally, I'd like to see a lower priced pipe like the one Johs did for us the first year, just to encourage more participation.

    I'd be pleasantly surprised if anyone could under-bid Johs.

    ^^ This. I think that we should at least make the offer before heading "out." I also like the idea of Joh's pipes - they are consistently purty. That said, this would be one hell of an investment for me.

    And I know that many people don't care for wardens, and that they don't always fit the pipe (warden freehand?). That said, what about a pipe with a regular and a warden stem? It's been done before, and I can see it as an option.

    I'd like to see a lower priced pipe. Over $150 when we're buying in bulk like this just seems like too much to me. We should have serious buying power and I really think we should be able to slide in under $100 on a club pipe.
