I have been looking to connect with folks from the old Cigar Family Lounge. Is there anybody here from the old site? Col.Kurtz
There's only a few privately owned cigar forums left, CP being the oldest and most trafficked of them all. I believe many CF members came here. We welcome them all. I've been offered to sell CP many times over the years, and currently have one company pressing me to sell right now. I have no intention of selling out. We welcome everyone who agrees to follow the few rules we have.
short story...no internal support.Why did the CF site close down?
Gary, is this gentleman who owned the shop we met at?short story...no internal support.
They tried a new mod but it all died out.
Most fogs, I'm aware of, are on a private FB group.
The band's back together.
....JimD from the Tobacco Shop in CT got me on board CF. He's retired and doing well. I think I was on there prior to CP...which Seadub hooked me into.
Yea.Sure, most of the old timers are on Facebook "CF Alumni" set up I believe by OpusXMarco, and there's also a CigarFamily slot too. Not as much fun as back in the day. Leafing through an old Cigar Aficionado mag about a year ago, I came upon an interview by the Newmans where Eric, who was the driving force behind the beloved CF said that he slashed it because he was "tired of breaking up fights between old men". I started in 2005 and really enjoyed meeting a few of the gang in my many travels before semi-retiring. Hope it picks up here at CP. I used to be "tradusir", my company name in Mexico before moving back to TX
