The Conclave Of Richmond Pipe Smokers, C.O.R.P.S. (pronounced “CORE” like the Marine Corps), is a non-profit organization, founded for its members and the public to learn about and enjoy the Ancient & Honorable Art & Sport of Pipe Smoking; and to educate and communicate all positive aspects thereof. We also, as much as possible, support Richmond area children’s charities with funds beyond our operating expenses. Membership is open to any person or organization interested in any aspect of the Art & Sport. A dues or sponsorship payment is required (currently $25 per year for individuals).

We meet monthly in a social meeting, with some limited business,  to enjoy one another’s company for dinner, drink and sharing our love of pipes and tobaccos.  The meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of the month, but the day, time and location will vary. See below for the location of the next meeting.  An irregular e-newsletter is issued, which provides meeting info, hobby happenings, literature, art and the like.

    Be there to smoke, joke and enjoy the camaraderie! The food is darn good. The companions better! Share some of your tobacco!

    PROGRAM: Rolling out one of our NEW programs this will be the first go at one member bringing his collection – or a part of his collection – to show and talk about! You’ll be able to see member’s great pipes, rather than seeing only one at a time whilst he is smoking it, and hear the stories of his personal stoke!

    So - Despite All the Danger this first “Member’s Collection” will be from the collection of Mbr. Linwood Hines!
    Yours is next!

    Be there!
