  2. Dear friends in Nitra

    After a long trip again well at home arrived. Time enough to think about the European Championship in the year 2016 in Nitra.
    It was a lot of fun for me and the participants from Germany. We have met friends from all over the world, received great hospitality in Slovakia and experienced the ancient culture of pipesmoking. Thanks a lot for the organizers. You did nothing wrong, the work for the CIPC, the exhibitions, the gala evening, and finally the European Championship, everything was perfect. Thank you very much. I’m looking forward to seeing you again wherever that is.

    Relax with your pipe

    Liebe Freunde in Nitra,
    nach langer Reise wieder gut zu Hause angekommen. Zeit genug an die Europameisterschaft im Pfeifelangsarauchen 2016 in Nitra zu denken. Es hat mir und den Teilnehmern aus Deutschland großen Spaß gemacht. Wir haben Freunde aus der ganzen Welt getroffen, große Gastfreundschaft in der Slowakei empfangen und die uralte Kultur des Pfeiferauchens erlebt. Den Organisatoren großen Danke dafür. Ihr habt nichts falsch gemacht, die Arbeiten für den CIPC, die Ausstellungen, der Galaabend und letztendlich die Europameisterschaft, alles war bestens. Vielen Dank.
    Freue mich schon jetzt auf ein Wiedersehen wo auch immer das ist. Relax with your Pipe.

  10. As president of the CIPC I’m most grateful to the Slovak / NITRA Pipe Club and its volunteers for organizinng the ECP 2016 and doing such a fine job. BIG compliment to you all.

    Many thanks as well to the mayor of NITRA and the CIPC president of Slovakia, dr. Josef Stanislav, for their support.

    There were over 300 participants, finding themselves in a very friendly and relaxed competition. They came from various countries of Europe, but also from Mexico, the USA and even from Japan. In Nitra, everybody made new friends / talked to old friends and enjoyed their tobacco pipes. The exhibition in the NITRA museum, showing the culture of pipe smoking, was an excellent start of a wonderful weekend!

    We look back with sweet memories and now we are on our way to Span 2017. In the meantime: be an ambassador of pipe smoking in your own country and make yourself visible on our CIPC website.

    Looking forward to seeing you all and ENJOY!

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