So this is installment of Working Mans Pass #4. This is a Blue Collar pass meant for working men and women. I have done this one a few times and it seems to be fun for everyone. Looking back on the past passes, I learned one important thing, it's all about having fun. So don't worry too much about the smokes that are coming or the smokes that you are passing, it's all for fun. If you aren't sure, just PM one of the FOG's and ask their opinion on you puts and takes. This is open to 1 and 100 players, I choose who gets in and who doesn't. I'll ship OOA 15AUG11 - 01SEP11.

The rules:

1. Gotta be blue collar. In the trenches. Now I understand that some people may wear a collared shirt to work. But if your super is wearing a tie and you come in with a polo and khaki, you are in.
2. Gotta have at least 30 days on the board and 30 meaningful posts. I choose what's meaningful so bugger off.
3. Gotta have between 0 and 2 passes under you belt.
4. Gotta explain why you don't meet rules 1 - 3.
5.Gotta put something equal or greater quality than what you take. I don't care about ISOM for ISOM. Perhaps a couple of ounces of a rare single malt. But since this a subjective rule, refer to rule 6
6. Gotta ask some body if you ain't sure.
7. Gotta catch and release within 3 calendar days (holidays excluded)
8. Gotta post the delivery confirmation number for priority mail, FEDEX/UPS/DHL 3rd day service.
9. The only if of the pass. If you personally hand off the pass to someone, you all gotta take a picture together of a take in your mouth and the pass in front of you. If you can't figure out how to post it to the forum you ain't got any business signing up.

PS1 I need a couple of long standing brothers to act as mentors for this. Yeah, I could do it myself but this is for people to meet each other too.
PS2 If I receive more cigars than I send, I will choose some of the extras to be donated to CPI.
PS3 This pass is insured by CPI.
PS4 I like pics of people smoking cigars from my pass.

Have fun with this! I'll follow along, but too much transition in my life right now to get involved. Plus, I don't know that I meet the "30 meaningful posts" requirement... :D

Emo, it's great to see you back on the boards. I'll monitor, critique, pass, play, cheer, whatever makes the most sense..!!....:thumbs:

Curious how you want to deal with the smokes you have listed with age on them. Many "blue collar" folks may not have equal trades, based on age...??

Cheers - B.B.S.

Edited to add....whoops! I'm way over the pass count....have fun, you guys.

I will play if you will have me! I have never done a cigar pass so this will be my first. Only thing I am going on vacation second week in october so if this conflicts then I can't play?

Thanks for the consideration,
Paul

BBS... I am not too worried about age for age. This is more for people to cut their teeth on a pass and to meet new members.

I'll post more tomorrow to update passers and to add a few different cigars.
