Yes sir, transitioned and sent out.  Looks like you should see it on the 23rd.
tried to add some interesting stuff for you

 Some notes for future Newb/Vet passes

Post the single stick prices based on the pass rules.  If the pass rules say to us CI or Famous box prices then post the single stick price based on that.  If the cigar is not listed there then post from a similar well known site.   This will eliminate P&T confusion
Moderator needs to post clear rules, not just reference a posted document.

Enjoyed the pass, thanks for letting me play and for adjusting the order when I had to travel.  Look forward to the next one

Looking forward to getting the box.

And while I've never been a real stickler over prices/values in passes, I agree there should be some sort of rules. That said, I think in "Newbie/Vet" pass, a certain amount of leeway is acceptable. Does "newbie" mean "new to cigars and I just bought a Thompson humidor sampler a month ago" or "new to Cigar Geeks"?

It's here and in one piece. I've been out of the loop for a while. Is it now SOP to ship passes without the added protection of a tupperware container? That's placing an awful lot of trust in the folks at the USPS.

I've received passes that are both in and out of Tupperware. For this many sticks, finding Tupperware and a box big enough to put them in plus tag-alongs, incremental Geek Math, bombs and such would have made this package way too big for most to want to ship. On NewVet Pass 4 I'm going to start out with many fewer cigars, post a tighter pricing restriction, and ship in tupperware to keep more of the Vets happier and show the Newbs an even better managed pass. Each pass we get better and better. These were not issues that were raised with the first two passes so I didn't feel the need to include them on this 3rd iteration. Forgive me folks.

Check the dates when you open the box, Dan. ;) Anyway, I got waylaid yesterday with unexpected household issues and a band rehearsal. I'm hoping to hit the "self serve" kiosk at the PO today and get it on the road.

I went by the PO to mail the pass, bought postage, affixed it to the box, and the drop box wouldn't open. It will go out tomorrow. 9505 5000 1644 5270 0000 74 is the tracking number.

Whoa, those are some serious puts my friend... I've never has a Power Ranger and you took the Roma SGP I was hoping would make it here to me so I think I'm going to have to smoke the Power Ranger instead!!! Oh the horror!

I hope you guys don't mind me doing this. I'm going to put all of your names into a box and pull 3 names at random to be bombed cigars from this pass after I set aside cigars to start the next pass as we have such an abundance of cigars. I'm going to raise the $ amount of the cigars on the next pass to the $8 and above range and anything not meeting that threshold will automatically go in the bombs along with some other sticks from the pass as well. How does this sound for you all?

We're hoping to bring in Roma shortly. Those guys haven't been very good about getting back to us. One would think they'd be motivated to make a $3000-$5000 sale with more sales ongoing but from what we understand they can't keep up with demand as it is, let alone open up new accounts.
