Stick This in Your Pipe and Smoke it, Anti-Smokers

Stick This in Your Pipe and Smoke it, Anti-Smokers

The enthusiasm of Hungarian enthusiasts never ceases to amaze and amuse us! Not two weeks after we happened on the The 19th Annual Szeged International Truckers’ Country Music Festival, we hear that this October the Magyar PipaszövetsĂ©g (Hungarian Pipe Smokers Association) will play host to the thirteenth annual “Pipe Smoking World Cup.” (That’s actually some of the members puffing away above.) And the contest, which is sanctioned by the Academie International de la Pipe, is only the tip of a country-wide celebration of the pipe; in the run-up to the Cup, there will be a conference here in Budapest on the history of pipe-smoking in Hungary, as well as the annual meeting of the AIP. You can go to the websites of the different groups to find out the times and locations of the different events, or just follow the stink.
