Ok....Montesmoke come up with a good idea - all of us putting a cigar into the raffle, and then I'll draw a winner who'll get all the cigars.

You only need to put one cigar in, a half decent Cuban please. Feel free to give more if u like!

I'll now make the draw by VIDEO and stick it onto youtube, thats much easier!

I won't be in the draw for obvious reasons, but I'll put a couple of cigars in :D

Anyone who wants to contribute needs to mail me a cigar - PM for my address if you don't already have it.


Current cigars in:
Romeo y Julieta No. 2 (Dean)
Montecristo No. 3 (Dean)
Partagas Super Corona (Dean)
For a laugh: 2 x fake, but good, Cohiba Robustos (Dean)

Montecristo No. 2 (CohibaIV)
Dominican cohiba torpedo (CohibaIV)

2 x Montecristo No. 2 (rokketsci)

Fonseca Delicias petit corona (montesmoke)
Habanos Cuban seed Torpedo (NC) (montesmoke)
Alec Bradley Corojo Robusto (NC) (montesmoke)

3 x Partagas Cronas Senior (SmokinCohibas)


THAT'S 15 CIGARS SO FAR :D


We're getting so many from each person I might split it into two draws...anyone mind?

I'll make the draw via a javascript application - and the code will be viewable by all so ya know it's all legit.

I won't be in the draw for obvious reasons, but I'll put a couple of cigars in :D

Deano

Well I've got no cigars from anyone yet, so we'll have to see!

Well I must say that as a one-a-week man (begrudingly on behalf of the "Other Half") if you get half the cigars you are looking at at the moment I would be sorted for several months.

As such I'm tempted to enter, but my offering would be slightly half-arsed (single Chinchilero Picadillo, I dont have a lot else!).

I'm in India when it's drawn anyway, if nobody hears from me until October it's because I'm touring the Raj. (leaving next wed)

Montesmoke

Regarding 2 draws in cigar raffle

It depends on the total amount of cigars we have, list the total amount of cigars in raffle say mid next week 27th-28th to see how many are in the pot by then.
Then we can decide.;)

WOO HOO! (That's American for 'Gor Blimey!')

Actual Cuban... errr -- I mean, ISOM -- cigars!

Deano. Excuse me, but what a vid!
In short, what fucking spectacular cinematography! :D :D

I didn't have any cigars to send - just a bloody stogie wasteland down here - so next time can I take part if I send in some cash? By PenPal or cheque? I'd be able to page Silver Suitcase, make a modest order, and bump a couple over to you somehow in the process.

Could you get a "dolly bird" ;) to pull them out for us next time?

smokiejoe

ROCKET SKI?!

Finally got to watch your vid, Deano, and must admit it was entertaining.

However...

I know you blokes talk funny. My user name here is "rokkitsci," which I thought was an obvious take on "rocket scientist," but you apparently think I'm a rocket skier! Let me assure you that during my 25 years at the Kennedy Space Center launching Space Shuttles, I have never once -- NOT ONCE! -- rocket skied.

What's this crap about "Bloody hell, now I've got to send these things to America?"

I sent my contribution across the pond.

What if Franklin had wired Winnie: "Sorry, old chap, but it's just so bloody far, I'll just fire up a Cuban and watch it on the telly."

Deano
03-09-2008, 12:45 PM
Frankie and the rest of you did do that, for sometime!

Hehe I was just joking obviously...

Yo Rokk!

As a kid, I watched the Apollo 11 landing and moonwalks and so on in black and white. The guys on the crackling TV channels lit up monster cigars at every success. Like buds, or mates.

As it should be.

I'm imagining you live in a very different era over there where a man can't celebrate a Shuttle 'hello' and co-smoke. I bet you have to leave your special space pad and drive for miles through the Everglades (??whatever??) to a special lepers' sin-booth and be forced to feel guilty about having some fun.

But seriously...

Do you have a cigar bar culture out there?
Or do you have exotic garden shed cabins like some tea drinkers in the old country?

Deano
04-09-2008, 08:45 PM
Sending these out tomorrow guys, sorry for delay been working from home.

Sorry for the delay in responding, Monte. Somehow managed to miss this post.

The answer to your question is a definite yes. In fact, I was just at my favorite cigar pub last night watching (American) football (college) last night (Saturday, 13 Sept.).

Well, I must admit I was as happy as a little girl yesterday (Saturday, 13 Sept.) when I got my package from Deano containing "Humidor Accessories."

Pretty clever. Technically, one could call cigars "humidor accessories," so Deano didn't exactly lie about the contents, did he?

Anyhow, I was delighted to finally get a sampling of the ISOM cigars you privileged folks smoke and can't wait for them to settle in my humi so I can give them a try.

Must note; however, that you Limeys either have very small mouths, are pressed for leisure time, or have extremely small willies (a small cigar would make your plonkers seem larger) since the selection in my windfall consisted almost entirely of short, small cigars.

I mean... a MAN'S smoke should be no smaller that 6 x 50 (bigger is better), but my prizes averaged around 5 x 40.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Just found it curious.

A tenny rate, I thank everyone who participated by contributing cigars and Deano for conducting the contest and sending my winnings all the way across the pond.
