Presidents newsletter nr. 14 / Autumn 2020

Dear national CIPC presidents and other pipe smoker friends around the world,

with this AUTUMN newsletter I would like to draw the attention of the CIPC international pipe smokers community to communicate a couple of important items.

First of all I’m hoping everything is fine with you all. During the nice summer a lot of people had the idea that the Covid-19 virus was gone but unfortunately a second wave is now going around the world. Our friends in Turkey were not able to organize the CIPC European Championship but the good news is next year 2021 there are two championships in ISTANBUL.

Last time I told you about the fine work of our new CIPC webmaster, Michal Koza. I hope you noticed that our CIPC website has not only been re-designed but there are some new “buttons” as well like “add now” and “create new post”. What does it menas? Well, the national CIPC presidents will be able to add (national) events and (interesting) post(s)! We (Michal Koza, Mark Dyer and myself) hope that all national presidents will keep up to date their countries page(s) with relevant material. Access rights and information was sent to the national presidents some weeks ago so let’s do the job together!

Finally we found a way to show the world that the CIPC is celebrating its 50th  anniversary in 2020. Within a couple of weeks a special English edition of the (French) glossy magazine “Spheres” is published. Very special is the fact that two stories of the magazine are a direct link to the birthday of the CIPC. (see attachment pictures). More details asap. about where to buy that unique magazine for yourself or a gift for Xmas.

WISH all my pipe smoker friends around the world: STAY SAFE & HEALTHY!!!

Cornelius C.N. Crans MA. – CIPC president.
