Interesting, my ad blocker was blocking that.


Hey calvarez, I see you're in Glendale. I'm down in 'Tukee but I'd love to do an in-person hand off.

Kent, can we get put next to each other in pass order? It'll be great to meet another Geek.


You betcha

Ok, I have a rough draft of the pass order set up for the members we have so far. I will adjust as we get more joining. Let me know if there are any discrepancies. (Not that I care but certainly do like to hear them LOL)

Sounds great.

On the meetup...so many choices. For high end, super nice, with great outdoor space, there's a place on High Street in Phoenix North. Lots of great bourbons too. Wife-approved as "perfect ventilation." There's Cigar King in Scottsdale, which is BYO, simple, but very interesting and great staff. Outdoor space is bring your own chair, indoor is furnished. Midtown there's Don's, which is simple and small.

About a week left to get signed up for the First Pass of 2019.
We have a dozen and could certainly find room for a few more.

Crap, I was looking forward to my first Gurkha in years. Oh, actually I think I got some spectacular ones in the CoM last year-ish. Aside from the fake MSRP, the thing with Gurkha is that their awesome ones are right next to 50 of their crappy ones.

And the Good Ol' USPS jacks this right off the bat. They delivered a couple packages to my door and decided NOT to grab the box pass out of my mailbox. Should hit the trail today.

A woman took a package to the post office to mail and was told it would cost $2.40 for fast delivery or $1.30 for slower service.
"There is no hurry," she told the clerk, "just so the package is delivered in my lifetime."
The postmaster glanced at her and said, "That will be $2.40, please."

Puts and takes complete - pass transitioned to Druff. Pinged him to meet at the shop or his house.

Fresh humi-packs in larger container.

Kent - as always - thanks, Brother.

So this is my first cigar pass... What are the best practices? Do we take pictures and post takes and puts, or is this supposed to be a secret? Is it discouraged to put too nice a cigar in, as to keep the level as intended from the start? Any classic faux pas newbs make?

No need to post pictures - most cigars can be found in the database and there are plenty of pictures there.

Here's where you can see what's happening with this pass:
http://www.cigargeeks.com/boxpass/default.asp?action=history&boxpas...

For an overview of the pass system, take a look here:
http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/boxx/knowledgebase.asp?iid=16&C...

All passes have the same general rule: Don't water down the pass! Your puts should be of equivalent worth as your takes and if you take an ISOM you replace it with another ISOM unless you've cleared it ahead of time with the moderator.

The moderator will establish the rules for benchmark pricing (Kent went with house rules) - CI, Famous, or other reputable online dealers. Typically you use a single or fiver pricing if available. Otherwise, use box pricing to get to the value of a stick.

It is customary, although not required, to leave a stick or two in the pass marked as gifts for the moderator.

OK, Calvarez, that picture is messing with this thread - I'm in a particularly foul curmudgeon mood.... how about resizing that billboard and reposting?
