Random quote: "There's something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It's like a fine wine. There's a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar." -Demi Moore

I am starting this chapter of the PIF off with a repost of Brad's excellent write up.

Here's a little primer on what a cigar PIF is and how they work. Feel free to add and edit - perhaps this can be posted on the appropriate forum/threads for the members of this site.


PIF stands for "Pay It Forward."

Geeks earn the right to become the recipient of a PIF by first Paying it Forward.

The Geek in play will post a list or give the rest of the community some general ideas of the cigars they like.

If you can fulfill at least a couple of the cigars on the list, then you can post on the thread that you'd like to do so. It is customary to send at least a five pack of cigars.

Only one person can fulfill a PIF at any given time, so pay attention to the interactions on the thread to ensure you're not stepping on someone who has already offered to Pay It Forward.

You should send your cigars to the recipient in a reasonable amount of time. This is typically within 3 business days. You should post the tracking number on the thread after you've sent the package.

The recipient of the PIF then posts an acknowledgement that they received their cigars (usually accompanied by a photo). You should put these posts on the PIF thread with one exception: If the PIF you received had ISOM's, post a picture of the PIF without ISOM's on the PIF thread and then use the ISOM forum to share a photo of all cigars.

After the acknowledgement has been posted, the Geek who fulfilled the PIF can then post their list. If no one picks up your list after several days, you may need to expand your list in order to get someone to Pay It Forward.

Finally, there can be different themes for a PIF. For example, the PIF on this forum entitled Wish List PIF focuses on fulfilling other peoples cigar Wish Lists that contain harder to find, limited edition cigars. Alternatively, the Ordinary Average Guy PIF focuses on good quality cigars but ones that are more readily available.

Been a while, so I'll get this one.

I'll attempt to get it put together this evening and out before the winter storm hits. If I can't, it will go out later this week. That work?

There's no way you could have gotten to it ahead of Nathan. He picked it up faster than a $100 spot on a Vegas poker table!

Keep an eye in Nathan's posts now... He's equally as fun and challenging to pick up!

So, I noticed!!! I either need to get an "app" for this site or just put in a "blind" bid for a PIF like I did unknowingly in the PIF4. LOL. The crazy part is that you guys had me concerned BUT there were several sticks I could've covered with ease in his list. Soooo, I wait once again. Just let me know if we're going to be creating a PIF6. LOL.

Jackal,

I was just at Nat Sherman in NYC and picked up some La Flor Dominicana Limidato V, Litto Gomez, and Nat Sherman Timeless. All great smokes. If I'd seen this post, I would have picked up some extras for you. Next time.

That is exactly right. The packages I sent out on Monday all escaped the city, but the ones I dropped off Tuesday weren't so lucky.

Today was the first day we received mail since Monday.....

At least they have something to blame it on "this time".
