person who is able to smoke the longest. At the end of the contest prizes
are chosen by each contestant in the order of their placement. The entry
fee is $10 to be paid upon entry the day of the contest. Cash only, please.

Pipe Carving Contest!!
Just For Him's third amateur pipe carving contest has begun.
This contest is for amateurs only. This is meant to be a fun introduction
to pipe making for those interested in trying their hand at it. If you're
not sure which category you fall under it is simply this: If you have been
paid for a pipe you've made you are considered a professional.
To enter the contest participants will need to purchase one of our Carve
Your Own pipe blocks(these blocks are pre-drilled and come with an
unfinished stem) and sign up for the contest. Contestants must use this
block and stem for their finished pipes. Contestants will have until
November 9th to carve their pipes. All pipes must be brought into the shop for
judging on or before noon on November 9th. The judging will be done by Just
For Him staff and some of our local professional pipe carvers.
