A great man said recently..ok, he's a great friend...no, he's a lawyer...wait he's a fellow BOTL here on CG...anyway, he promoted this contest with a comment made to a few of us here.
"No more special occasion cigars! Smoke them when you're in the mood. You could be hit by a bus tomorrow."
This resonates with me because I hoard cigars better than any hoarder could hoard. So let's have a contest!
Here's the deal. Post a pic in this thread of that cigar you've been saving for a special occasion or because "you'll never get another one" or "so and so gave it to you and now they're dead"...hopefully not but you should get the point by now.
Smoke that !@#%$ing thing, it's time. Let's all do it together. Today is that special occasion..
Light it up, post a pic, win a fiver from me which will include one of the many cigars I have deemed too special to smoke along with a few others that will be fantastic.
The cigar has to be special to you for some reason, it doesn't have to have cost $100 or any of that bs, it just has to be something you've been saving for the right time, that special moment. It has to be lit and you have to post a picture of it...lit..in this thread. It would be cool if you gave the backstory too, but you don't have too.
You have until the end of the month(November) to smoke em. You can enter multiple times. On or around December 1st I will pick a winner via random number...if you smoke 2 special occasion cigars you'll get 2 numbers and so on and so on.
Let's try our best to not give some average ordinary, bought on cbid cigar the status of "special occasion"...unless you have a story to go with it.
I'm running this contest, I make all decisions and all my decisions are final.
Go forth, smoke the stuff you've been saving for that special occasion, weddings, births, alien invasion....if you don't understand and need some clarification shoot me a pm.
Hopefully I covered it all, if not I retain the right to change the rules at any time. Ready...set...go smoke that "special" stick.
Edit: Open to anyone able to follow the directions
I have something I’ve been squirreling away for a special occasion which I think will be today/this evening. Later this afternoon I conduct my last bourbon tasting at the Kentucky Distillers Association to complete my certification as Executive Bourbon Steward.
Murphy223 - 11/8/2019 11:23 AM Hmm... need to think about this. Not sure I've got any I'm really holding on to but it does make me think about a bottle of Pappy I've got which I've been hesitant to open
Wow this contest is RIGHT up my alley lol and the reason I do my own special occasion pass haha, I will be sure to enter at some point! Cool contest
Yeah, at some point, if somebody ever takes their last turn that has been 2+ months.
Lol yeah we are still in the midst of working out a trade/ pass so those 30 are off limits lol but I got a good 150 I think that fall into this category as well, I haven’t smoked hardly at all in the last 2 years! With any of “those” special sticks, I’m always just grabbing what’s on top to play golf haha, so I for sure need to get in on this! Thanks for the inspiration!!
