Contest: Sandblasting Cigars (Send Cigars to Troops - Win Ci

Hee is my latest contest, its for the greater good, its to pay it forward, and it'll reward someone, somehow...

Here's the deal:

I promise to contribute at LEAST 500 cigars to troops deployed in Iraq or Afganistan.

To enter my contest you have to pledge to send cigars to the men and women in uniform.

For every 10 cigars you send you'll get one 'ticket' in a drawing I will hold in early June or lae May. So if you pledged 100 cigars your name would be in the jar 10 times (10 x 10 = 100).

Its random, but here are the prizes

3rd prize: 10 premium smokes from my collection

2nd prize: 15 premium smokes from my collection

1st prize: 25 cigars from the collection

So you send cigars to our troops and you have a shot at wnning.

I'm counting on honesty amongst smokers here, its the honor system.

Hopefully you all get to pay it forward and do the right thing.

Now, anyone have an address for someone we can ship cigars to 'over there'

Over there
Over there
Do beware
Over there
For cigars are
Coming yes cigars
Are coming
And they won't
Come back
Until its over
Over there

Post your pledges here, I'll keep track of them and the drawing will be at a herf to be held in Spotsylvania soon.

OK, so no one wants to send cigars? Tell you what, you send 'em to me and I'll send 'em overseas...

Robustops collects cigars for the troops several times a year and I always give to him, and just did again. Otherwise I would be all over this,,not the contest, just sending cigars out.

If I can get an address on where to send them I'd also be willing to receive other people's cigars and then just send them off with my package, if anyone wants to just let me know.

I'm going to send him some and I will let grtrx know about it. I also am checking with the guys at my tuesday night herf for some donations.

Does this sound ok grtrx or do you want to receive the cigars?

Grtrx, perhaps you can check with Robustops. If he agrees, the cigars can be sent to him. This way, the troops get smokes and an independent third party counts how many cigars someone sent for the contest.
