    Training Wheels Pass

    Welcome to the April Training Wheels Pass! That's right, this will be a learning experience for everyone (I always learn something new in passes). This pass is open to members of CP who have been on CP for less than 1 year and more than 1 month at the time of this post. The purpose of this pass is to help newer members gain some credibility and experience here on CP. Please note that there will be many eyes watching your actions, but don't be afraid to ask questions. I have tried to put a wide variety of sticks in this pass to allow everyone to have a shot at something they will be interested in, as well as experience in all of the issues that arise.

    Rules:
    1: Have fun! This is meant to help out the newer members. Everyone is free to make suggestions, but I don't want to see any bashing or drama popping up here. This is my pass; I have the final say.
    2: Keep the ball rolling - Think about your P's and T's before the pass gets to you. PM or Post what you propose ahead of time; you can always tweak it after the pass shows up. Turn around for the pass is expected to be a day or two, so be available.
    3: Communication is key - PM the next person to see if they are ready to receive the pass. Make sure they respond that s/he is ready! If you have something come up and will not be available, please let me know!!! We can try to work around it.
    4: Equal for Equal = Standard P/T rules apply: 1 for 1, Value for Value, Domestic for Domestic, ISOM for ISOM, Rarity for Rarity. Feel free to shoot me a PM to discuss how to determine any of these, or ask another established member.
    *note: I have done a lot of thinking on this, and there will be some ISOMs in this pass. If you plan on trading for one of these, prepare to be grilled (phone or PM). Nothing personal; you're just a new guy.
    5: Read the Rules Sheet! - Please. It is put in there for a reason. It outlines just about everything. Even if you think you know it all, you might learn something new. I'm not going to list them all here, so read it!!
    6: Inventory the pass - Check the checklist sheet to what was received. Check this first post for a cigar inventory. Make sure they are numbered correctly. DO NOT take cigars out of their baggies unless they are your approved takes. Shoot me a PM on any issues.
    7: Have Fun!!! - Hopefully you will get to sample some cigars you have never tried before, or possibly just see that you have read about.

    If you are interested in participating in this pass and meet the aforementioned requirements, please post here. Participant selection is still up to my discretion. I'm thinking somewhere between 10-15 participants. Pass list and the cigar list will be updated on this first post.

    I'd like to express interest in joining up, but will be out of town April 18-25. So if this would exclude me, I totally understand. If not, please count me in.

    Will this pass be covered by CPI?

    Good point .. I kinda forgot about that. I am a member of CPI, so this pass should be covered under CPI. However, there are some things to note: From the By Laws

    · 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.
    · Don’t not take advantage or cheat CPI.


    So, although it is listed in the Rule's sheet that will follow the pass, please note that the pass must be shipped w/ a tracking number and w/ 2-3 delivery time.

    If you plan on hosting a pass, I would recommend joining CPI. :thumbs:
