    Fruits of Castro's Soil Pass No. 1
    Rules for Participation:
    • 4 Months membership on the board (Join date on or prior to Nov. 7th 2013) 
    • Absolutely NO issues of asshattery during your tenure here.
    • There is a required participation in a minimum of one successful trader box split.
    • You must have a minimum of 100 posts.
    • This can be your first pass if I know you or an established member will help you. 
    • These rules may be bent a bit if I know you and or I have completed a trade or split with you.
    Pass Rules:
    • This pass is strictly Cuban Cigars nothing else!
    • EL/RE for EL/RE or Normal production for Normal production Puts and Takes
    • Try to keep the $ value as close as possible so the guys at the end of the pass still have options. I am not setting a max or min for puts and takes because I want it to be fun. Do your best to get close to the value of the cigar you want and if it looks off we will discuss it.
    • Please post the box code of any cigars you want to put into the pass if it is available. This will help limit any fakes and if you do not have a box code because it was a split, trade, purchase, ect. you did here on Cigar Pass then it will be okay. I understand some retailers also sell singles that you usually don't get box codes on.
    • No vintage CC's circa 70's, 80's, or 90's as it will make it way to confusing to establish a value and I am not starting the pass with any.
    • No custom rolls including Johnny O's as it could also lead to unnecessary arguing on authenticity
    • Upon receiving the package please inspect the pass and make sure the humidity is fine, make sure the cigars aren't dried out and cracking and nothing is damaged or missing. So, do an inventory on not only the cigars and numbers, but make sure they are all there! If there is an issue, please post it in the pass and make all participants and myself aware and we will work through it.
    • Post your P/T’s as soon as you can so they can be reviewed and discussed. Please fill out the papers with the pass, noting which cigars you took and what you put for them. Use the correct numbers!!! So if you want to take a PLPC that is in slot 10 and want to put a Bolivar PC in for it you put the Bolivar in slot 10 and adjust the list accordingly once approved. Be sure to label all of your puts with their corresponding box code numbers on the blank bands provided like I have done for all the other cigars if the code is available! Do not ship without making sure the next person in line is available and ready to accept the pass.
    • Unlimited amount of P/T’s, after all, we have to make this worth everyone’s while.
    • If at all possible, try to prevent putting a double into the pass…if the cigar you were going to use as a put is already in there, try to find another suitable put. Everyone deserves to have the same variety to choose from that you did.  The pass will start with some doubles but they will diminish quickly. If you are taking one of the doubles you can only take one so it gives another person a chance at the other.
    • Always ship with a tracking number and post it in the thread notifying the members that the pass is on the road! Hand-offs are allowed and encouraged if at all possible. If a hand off is going to be completed you MUST post a pic of you two smoking together.
    • If the box is in bad shape, please replace it before sending it on to the next person.
    • If you have to drop out at any time or think you will be out of town when your turn in the pass comes up, let the pass members know immediately.
    • Do not be afraid to ask questions. If this is your first pass and you aren't learning pass etiquette and how to participate, then this pass is pointless.
    • Post everything in the pass thread: questions, concerns, etc. Not in a PM.

    yeah, it comes to mind that not all CC's have box codes, either due to error, or the petacas don't have them if they are x3, or x5 packs or singles.

    Without the cigar list it's tough to say whether or not I can hang in the pass, but I think I can probably do ok.
    I'll join if you'll have me and if I see any issues once the cigar lineup is posted I'll let you know.
    Does that work?

    Paul, I've been itching to hop into a pass.  I may have some availability issues in late May & June, but I should if this kicks off soon.  I'm in if you don't think it will be a hindrance!
