3rd Annual Cigars for Troops Drive

It's that time of year again! Even though the holiday season is a few months away, starting early will give everyone who wants to participate time to send a care package. Here are the previous years' posts:

2011 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=9907...
2010 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=5894...

The basic rules:

*The cutoff will be October 31st for getting packages/donations in the mail to me. This will allow me enough time to get them shipped and the soldiers receive them before the holidays.
*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. My address is in my profile.
*Packages can be drop shipped to me from vendors. Members have done this in years past with success.
*Please PM me if you send a package. I'd like to avoid boxes sitting on my doorstep in case I'm traveling.
*If you would prefer, a cash donation can be made to cover shipping. Last year the approximate cost was $80 to ship 3 large packages. I will keep everyone updated in case we have enough to cover shipping.
*I will keep a running list of those that have expressed interest along with if I received the package. If you commit to donating early on and decide it can't be done, no harm, no foul.

Last year, I created a virtual humidor with all the cigars. Depending on the response, I might do that again this year.

As always, feel free to post any questions!

I think this is the 4th year we've done this now. The first year that we did it, it was a pass and I sent off all the cigars to the troops when it got back to me. I like this way much better as it is more timely for the holidays. Thanks for setting it up again.

In 2010, we received a nice letter from one of the groups we bombed. They also included a flag that had been flown over their base (have the flag/specifics in a safe place).

Last year, we didn't receive anything. However, I'm not too worried about it as long as we provide something for their efforts and being away during the holidays.

don't get me wrong i was just asking. we sent some big damn boxes full of stuff and contact info etc. we heard they may not have gotten through so we were bummed out.

i will get something over to you. my lodge is mostly military and they do love a surprise when deployed.
