"International Pipe-Smoking Day 2017"
Die Mitglieder des 1.Kölner Pfeifenclubs erinnern mit ihrem Statement an den internationalen Welt-Pfeifenrauchertag des Jahres und stellen sich mit einem gemeinsamen Bild auf um mit Pfeifenrauchern aus der ganzen Welt auf ein selbstbestimmtes, freies und friedliches Miteinander aufmerksam zu machen. Dabei steht es im Vordergrund den positiven und verbindenden Charakter des Pfeiferauchens als Teil einer Weltanschauung hervor zu heben.
"The members of the PIPE CLUB of COLOGNE recall with their statement to the international world pipe day of the year and stand out with a common picture to make a self-determined, free and peaceful coexistence with pipe-smoking from all over the world. It is important to emphasize the positive and connecting nature of the pipe smoking as part of a world view"

Memo received from CIPC:
With this Memo Cornelius (President CIPC) and me (Geert Landlust:Secretary General CIPC) would like to draw your attention to the upcoming International Pipe Smoking Day, that will be held on February 20 th 2017.
In cooperation with the Pipe Club of NITRA we organized a small exhibition of the IPSD photo competition 2016 at the ECP in NITRA and there was a lot of information about the winners on the CIPC website. Thanks to the nice guy of STANWELL Pipes in Denmark for his special gifts.
With this memo we would like to urge all of you to participate in the IPSD 2017 process by taking some typical pictures again. This year you have a special instruction: pictures of pipe smokers in your own cultural surroundings. For instance at a well-known national monument and/or with people in national costumes and/or typical landscape backgrounds (like we have in the Netherlands – windmills, wooden shoes and tulips).
Of course seeking the public outside and making them aware of our intentions is good advertising on the positive aspects of pipe smoking around the world..
So please send photos or videos to firstname.lastname@example.org (= Michal Koza, our CIPC IT specialist). But be aware of the deadline: 01 March 2017. All the material will be put on the CIPC website and the final result / price winners at the World Cup in Spain 2017.
We are looking forward to your ideas and results and please follow also the IPSD 2017 information on the CIPC website.
Cornelius Crans, President CIPC
Geert Landlust, Secretary General CIPC
