Random quote: I did the cover of Cigar Aficionado, so I'm supposed to talk about loving cigars. I've smoked them a couple of times. My father used to smoke cigars. I love the idea and the concept, and I love the smell of cigars.Gina Gershon

6th 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' threads:

2010 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=5894...
2011 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=9907...
2012 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1503...
2013 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=2560...

Historic Donations
2010 - 525 Cigars
2011 - 587 Cigars
2012 - 676 Cigars
2013 - 1,343 Cigars

The basic rules:
*This is open to anyone, whether you are a vet or newbie. The more the merrier! This is your chance to get that coveted "Troop Supporter" badge.

*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. Cutters and/or matches would also be appreciated. Please, no lighters ā€“ Iā€™m trying to avoid any problems with USPS.

*Cigars with cellophane travel better. However, if you have cigars without cellophane, feel free to send them. Any donations of 5/6 finger bags is also appreciated.

*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.

*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.

*No donations for shipping costs are needed: Paul (SenorPablo) has graciously offered to cover these expenses out of advertising revenue from the site. Thanks Paul!

*The cutoff will be October 31st for getting packages/donations in the mail to me ā€“ my address is in my profile. This will allow me enough time to get them shipped and the soldiers receive them before the holidays.

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'm in! I'm "minus one" in my CFT tally. I failed to donate last year, but my nephew and his unit were among last year's recipients.

Silly question: How would a handful of cobs and a few tins of tobacco fly in this effort?
