    Peter founded it some ( about 10 I think) years ago.

    PS:


    First meeting was end of 2010:


    "The first meeting was a very quiet occasion...but it's a start and hopefully, by the next meeting, the weather will have improved a bit.

    Apologies were received from Colin and Michael, who were unable to attend due to the continuing snow and ice (from Tranent and Penicuik respectively).
    John managed to make it through the snow from Leith but unfortunately couldn't stay long...thanks for making the effort!

    The smoking area at The Cuddie Brae is nicely sheltered, and the heaters are very efficient, so we were both able to shed hats and gloves whilst we had a pint and a pleasant, companionable smoke...Peterson's Sunset Breeze in a 307 Standard System for myself, St Bruno Flake in a no-name Billiard for John.

    We might have planted a few seeds of interest, as we had a few friendly enquiries from the cigarette smokers coming outside...along with some very complimentary comments on the aromas!"




    Note the original venue, Ally and Chris!

    Hello,

    very sorry to learn about Peter's passing. I spent a nice afternoon with the Pipe Club of Edinburgh in the summer before Samuel Gawith Bothy Flake was released. Sergeant Matron (if I remember his nickname right), whose pipe club helped to create the blend, was attending too, so I learned about the tobacco there. I had e-mailed Peter in advance and he was happy to welcome me. So after a visit to the Pipe Shop in Leith I went to their gathering and left just in time to catch the last train of the day back to Newcastle.

    Best wishes
    Markus
