Piper PIF PPIF if you will

Thinking of running this like a normal pif.

But I'm putting a monetary cap on this..
20-30$.. Nothin stupid (unless someone wants to send me some Penzance)

Go with the figure of 3$ an ounce. Tins are ok, Accessories, and sampler baggies.

The only difference will be ,once we fill up a bracket, I'll allow a few days for the guys to pm each other about their preferences. Maybe something they'd wanted to try but haven't ordered. So maybe you'll get something you'll actually smoke.

No mass launches..one at a time.. For now

Any other ideas?

Sounds good, $30 goes a long ways with pipe tobacco, can't really think of anything else at the moment.

I want to play and think that the way you have it set up is fine.

However, I suspect that the really new guys to the pipe game will be reluctant to get involved because they will feel like they don't have anything on hand that the experienced guys haven't already grown out of or have big piles of stashed in their "cellar." I think that most new guys start off with a few tried and true blends (often cheap drug store brands that probably won't excite the pipe veterans) and smoke them for a long while because they can get so many bowls out of their first few tins/pouches. These new guys are probably the ones that would benefit most by receiving a sampler package from an experienced pipe smoker but what can they offer in return? I notice that this is not called a Noob PPIF and I guess there's nothing wrong with fresh Noobs waiting until they have a stash built up before they can get in on a pass.

If the intent of the PPIF were to be specifically aimed at expanding the horizons of noobs then maybe each noob could be paired with a veteran, the veteran could send a variety sampler of the blends that they have in their stash, and the noob could go out and buy something that the veteran says they would like to smoke. This way the noobs could get some experience with a variety of blends and the veterans could get something that they actually want.

I don't know. Maybe I'm making the whole thing way more complicated than it needs to be. I just know how much I benefited from the variety pack samplers that some generous pipe veterans bombed on me when I started and it seems like there are quite a few fresh pipe noobs around here (with a limited stock on hand) that would really benefit from something similar but might be intimidated by the thought of jumping in on a PIF with a bunch of more experienced guys.

Any trade sounds good to me and I'm game for however it works out.
