Saturday, September 22nd we
will be celebrating Bilbo and Frodo's birthday at Just For Him from
12pm-10pm!!! There will be food, LOTR movies and LOTR trivia. This year we
will be watching the animated Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies. There
will be deals on pipes, LOTR merchandise and our Middle Earth Tobaccos.
Dressing up as hobbits or your favorite Middle Earth character is not only
acceptable but encouraged. There will be a prize for the best costume.
Pipe Carving Contest!!
September 22nd will be the
start of Just For Him's third amateur pipe carving contest. 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 on
or after September 22nd(these blocks are pre-drilled and come with an
unfinished stem), sign up for the contest and have their picture taken.
Contestants must use this block and stem for their finished pipes.
Contestants will have until November 10th to carve their pipes. All pipes
must be brought into the shop for judging on or before noon on November
10th. The judging will be done by Just For Him staff and some of our local
professional pipe carvers. More information will be available on September
Pipe Smoking Contest!!
The 2018 Pipe Smoking Contest
will be held on Saturday, October 6th. For those of you not familiar with
our contest... each contestant is given 1/8 ounce of cube cut burley, 2
matches and 1 minute to light their pipe. No relights are allowed and the
matches are collected at the end of the 1 minute lighting period. The
winner is the 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. For those that entered the Meerschaum Coloring Contest earlier
in the year you must bring your pipe in to be judged. Judging will take
place during the pipe smoking contest.
