The members of pipe smoking club ''De gezellige dampkring'' gathering together for a contest pipe smoking in Purmerend. The objective is to keep your pipe smoking for as long as you can with a predetermined amount of tobacco (3,3 grams). In a special room, the 77 year-old mister Klijzing sits apart from the rest with two jurors. He is trying to break the world record (set by an American), which he eventually does with 92 minutes and 18 seconds.
