Special Meeting 2 June 2004

A special meeting was arranged so that BBC Look East cameras could film us 'training' for the British Championship. We assembled in the Rosary clubroom and held a contest smoking 3 grammes of the British Championship tobacco, Samuel Gawith's Firedance Flake in pipes of the members' choice.

BBC reporter Dean Arnett interviewed most of the members prior to the start of the contest, after which our Chairman ran through the rules. First out of the running was Frank King Senior with 28'05. Len Ellis finished third with 52'20, John Betts second with 53'25and the winner was Reg Walker with 61'40. Luckily the camera did not pick up the unseemly grumblings of 'only win when there's no prize, mutter mutter.' The following evening edited highlights of the film were shown on Look East, with the stars of the show being Frank Snr. ('it's cos me leg's playing up'), Keith Coleman (rumours are that BBC are commissioning a series on his training regime of jogging and press-ups, not to speak of 'tobacco-caressing') and Tony 'Ive got a blockage' Larner. John Walker's attempt to inject a riper comment in the pre-watershed programme was unfortunately masked with a fit of someone's coughing.

A light-hearted piece of television, well put together. Well done Dean, who should be encouraged by the fact that people as far away as Southend and (incredibly) Spain rang in to say that they had seen it.
