The objective of Cigar Pass Insurance, from here on out referred to as CPI, is to provide additional insurance above and beyond what is offered by the carrier. Many of the cigars passed in Cigar Passes are difficult to obtain, and many times harder to replace.
Responsibility of the insured:
∑ Once pay dues in cigars equivalent to $12-15 US dollars.
∑ Dues will be sent with the outer packaging marked in reference to CPI, and the inner bag will have a small slip of paper marked CPI and your handle.
∑ A PM will be sent to the board members with the contents of proposed dues.
∑ When starting a pass, the insured will state that the pass is insured by CPI.
∑ Suggest that persons joining the pass also join CPI.
∑ Have all participants deliver priority mail via USPS or any private carrier via means to deliver in 2-3 days.
∑ Have passers include delivery confirmation on the box.
∑ All participants must individually number each cigar placed in the box.
∑ All participants must post in the appropriate Cigar Pass thread, all put and takes.
∑ If a passer includes a cigar or cigars intended only for the pass starter, these will be considered gifts. Gifts will only be insured for passers who are current CPI members.
∑ Donít not take advantage or cheat CPI.
Responsibility of CPI:
∑ Appoint a board of at least 3 people to guide CPI and render decisions.
∑ Make public to those members insured: 1) The current roster of CPI insured passers; 2) The current list of cigars in custody by the treasurer; 3) Any claims made by CPI members and the status of that claim.
∑ Handle and pay claims in the order they are received.
∑ If a good record of give and takes is kept by the pass and there are insured passers in the pass it may be voted to supply the insured people with a sympathy replacement for there losses but the pass starter is the top priority since they have the most to lose.
∑ If at a point in the future, CPI has an overrun of cigars, the board may present to the members of CPI a plan of action for a vote. This plan may include a raffle with proceeds going to a charity, the cost of running Cigar Pass, or the cost of running CPI; a donation to a Charity Herf; a Cigar Pass to increase the quality of cigars in the fund.
∑ The board wonít deny any cigars being sent for dues; the board will suggest a change if the exact cigar is already held by CPI. This will insure a robust selection in the treasury.
