Hobbit Day at Just For
Saturday, September 23rd 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. 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. Yes, we know that Hobbit Day is actually on the 22nd but
that falls on a Friday this year and Saturdays are just much better days
Pipe Smoking Contest!!
The 2017 Pipe Smoking Contest
will be held on Saturday, October 7th. 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.
Pipe Carving Contest!!
September 23rd will be the
start of Just For Him's second 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 23rd(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 11th to carve their pipes. All pipes must be brought
into the shop for judging on or before noon on November 11th. 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 23rd.
