Scottie,
A request for clarification, if I may.
You've indicated the theme for the carving contest this year is a bamboo shank. I was under the impression that as long as bamboo was incorporated in some manner in the construction, it was "anything goes". Has it now been ruled that it must be a bamboo shank?
I ask because I have another idea on using bamboo, not necessarily restricted to the shank.

You've got it right, Mr. Red.

Scottie just had bamboo shank on the brain for some reason when she was typing.

Ms. P: Please edit any announcements you may have sprinkled around the Net asap. Thanx.

Does the cart and payment work if we do it all online? I may actually make it to the show this year.

TABLE REGISTRATION
Time is running out to reserve your tables! If you are attending the show and want a table please go to http://www.gkcpipeclub.com today and register for a table, the Carvers Contest, purchase raffle tickets and Saturday evening Banquet tickets.

NORTH AMERICAN CARVERS CONTEST
If you are mailing your contest entries please remember they must be received no later than Thursday, September 21st. If you will be at the show Quinton must have your entries before dinner on Friday evening. Please visit the club's website to register for the contest.

CARVERS RAFFLE
PLEASE SHOW YOUR CONTEST PIPES to your customers. Help us promote the Carvers Contest and Raffle by showing in progress and finished pictures of your contest entries and by asking your customers to purchase raffle tickets. I will be attending the NASPC Show in Columbus and will be selling Carvers Raffle Tickets there. Come find me at my table...or send people my way...to purchase. Remember, there are ONLY 300 raffle tickets available and the more you buy the better your chances of winning the set are.

Good Luck Everyone! See you in KC :-)

Less than a month left to the show!  If you are planning to book a room at the Argosy the group room rate is only good through the 31st!  Please make your reservations now.  

Please join us for our awards banquet on Saturday evening.  We will be giving away all our show awards as well as announcing the winners of the Carvers Contest.  You won't want to miss it!! And as a bonus everyone who attends the banquet will have a chance to win a "Scottie" pipe!

Speaking of the Carvers Contest, have your bought your Carvers Raffle tickets yet?  Tickets are 1 for $25 or 5 for $100.  We only sell 400 tickets.  Don't miss out on your chance to win 7 Bamboo pipes complete with a custom briar slab stand!  You do not have to be at the show and we will ship the set anywhere in the world.  We (myself in particular) appreciate the support as the raffle is how the winning carvers get paid for their pipes.  The more tickets we sell the better their payday will be.

Please visit the GKCPC to purchase banquet tickets, exhibitor tables and raffle tickets.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Scottie

Today is the last day to get the show room rate at the Argosy! Do not wait any longer to book your rooms! The Argosy has sold out every weekend since they opened (this is no joke). They will be opening reservations up to the general public come tomorrow.

Call the Argosy at 816-746-3100 and mention the GKCPC Show when you book your room to receive the show rate.

Vendor tables are sold out!

There will be a caricature artist onhand Saturday. He will be drawing you and your pipe for $15! It's a heck of a deal and should be loads of fun to watch.

We still have seats available at the Saturday Evening Banquet.  Come hear about the history of our club and find out who wins the Carvers Contest!  You'll walk away with a goody bag and a full belly.  AND...everyone who attends will have a chance to win a "Scottie" pipe as well as a GKCPC Club pipe.  

As always, don't forget to purchase your Carvers Raffle tickets!


See you all soon!
