As many of you know I host a raffle every year to help fund the GKCPC Carvers Contest. It would be a huge help to both the CHC raffle as well as the Carver's Contest and Carver's Raffle if you all would help promote this raffle. If you all could share my social media posts on your personal/pipe pages it would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a short description that I have been posting on all the forums of which I am a member.


The GKC Pipe Show is fast approaching and with it comes this year's Carvers Helping Carvers Raffle!! We have an all-star lineup featuring pipes by Premal Chheda, Steve Norse, Jason Thompson, Ryan Alden, and yours truly.

Carvers Helping Carvers is an annual raffle to help support and promote North American Pipemakers. All proceeds go to the GKC Pipe Club's North American Carvers contest and are split between the 7 winning pipemakers.

The drawing will be held Thursday, July 20th 2017, at the monthly GKCPC meeting. Each pipe will be raffled individually. The winners will be announced via the GKCPC and Piersel Pipes social media accounts. You do not have to be present at the meeting to win.

Go to www.carvershelpingcarvers.com to purchas tickets.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for supporting North American Pipemakers!


Thanks,
Scottie

Thank you all for your support! We had a great raffle and raised a lot of money.

I decided to re-raffle the pipe I won as I felt a bit bad for my name being drawn. My intentions were never for me to win a pipe but to support my brothers and sisters in the pipemaking world. So, without further adieu:

The winner of the Ryan Alden Bent Brandy is Michael Lockard of Bangor, ME!!
