OK gentlemen, I'm back in town and ready to go! Thank you to the members who priced out the cigars that I added to the Pass, great job!  :thumbs:
 
I see a few Pass Members haven't chimed in yet, so I'm hoping they are aware this is underway. 
 
Puts & Takes as follows...
 
1) P: (37) Casa Magna Robusto $6.00......T: (27) Oliva Series V Belicoso $6.12
 
2) P: (38) Arturo Fuente Queen B $5.31......T: (22) AF La Flor Fina 8-5-8 Sungrown $5.22
 
3) P: (39) Arturo Fuente King B $6.96......T: (1) HEX Figurado $6.52   (28) DPG Original Invictos $6.79 (Congrats Theron!) 
 
4) P: (40) LFD Capitulo II $9.63......T: (20) Tatuaje 10 Miami Belle Encre $9.34 
 
 
Calculations as follows:
 
1) CI/SI/Holts...$162/27= $6.00
 
2) Holts $96...SI $94...Famous $97 - $287/54 = $5.31
 
3) Holts $126...SI $123...Famous $127 - $376/54 = $6.96
 
4) SI $96...Famous $97...Serious $96 - $289/30 = $9.63
 
 
Now, for my first contest...Find the error in my above calculations. Each member gets one guess at it and all entries have to be posted by 6PM Sunday EST. Winner gets a CC that will be added to the Pass and addressed to him.  
 
I will launch the Pass on Monday Saturday morning!

You're not getting the average price per stick from each site, & then averaging those 3 prices.

I took the 3 box prices, added them together, and divided by the total number of sticks per box times three....same thing.

Nope, didn't need to use Holts, I still used three sources that Brian allowed to be used. 
 
 
BTW: Too late....you edited you post!! You're one guess has been used.... :laugh:

You rounded the prices to the nearest whole numbers.

Nope...that only means a penny or two at most. It's not as obvious as that.... :whistling:

Nice to see this on its way.

I didn't note any error in you actual calculations, but I did find that Famous does not list the LFD Capitulo II as an item they carry.

You're outside of the +/- 5% range for P/T.
 
ie  T: (1) HEX Figurado $6.52, your P should be in the range [6.20 , 6.85]

WE HAVE A WINNER!
 
Now THAT'S paying attention to the Pass bro!
 
When the Pass gets to you Theron, look for the bag with your name on it...it'll contain a 2007 Bolivar Petit Belicosos.
 
I will adjust my TAKE to the correct one now... :thumbs:

The Pass is launching today now that we have a winner to the contest and I have contacted Lee (Slick300) via PM to provide him all the USPS info so he can track the package. 
 
Thanks for including me in this Pass Brian!  :thumbs:
 
 
Lee, you're clear to post your PUTS & TAKES at any time.

ATTENTION!
 
 
Inside to pass box is a cigar list. Each cigar that is on the list has the price that has been figured for it, next to it. When you do your puts and get your pricing done, make sure you put the average price of the cigar next to it so the people behind you don't have to do the work all over again. For your takes, just use that price, no extra price searching is necessary.

The Pass FINALLY moved since Saturday...I'm really starting to dislike USPS and it's Priority Mail 2 Day shipping. It hasn't been 2 days in almost a year. 
 
Bastids!
 
Let us know when it arrives Lee, it says it'll be delivered today....5 1/2 days later.  :angry:
