Let’s Get Active

C’mon folks, spring is just around the corner. Let’s shake those winter doldrums and get active on this board. Participation in these activities is one of the great things about CW and helps strengthen our community.

FOGs, remember what it was like when you were a newbie. I sure do. I was excited and couldn’t wait to participate with the big boys. Well, we’ve got a new crop of newbies showing up everyday. Let’s show ‘em the ropes.

Newbies, there’s plenty going on for you to participate in. Don’t be shy, jump right in and get active. It’s the best way to meet the other members of our board (and get a chance to try some new cigars).

Class of 2006 – many of you have been shouldering the load lately. Keep up the good work.

Here’s a list of the continuing activities on CW (at least the ones I can think of):

Newbie Sampler Trade (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=19662) – An opportunity for new members of CW to purchase great samplers of cigars from some of the FOGs (and usually at greatly reduced prices).

Pay It Forward (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=146560) - A chance to grab another CWer’s cigars and then a chance to give away some of your own.

Full Flavor Federation PIF (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=139535)– Same as the PIF above, but only for “real man” cigars (no Macanuetereds).

Wishlist PIF (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=148053)– A relatively new activity. Another PIF but in this one you name some cigars you’d like to try. When someone fulfills your PIF, they get to post their own list of cigars they’d like to try.

Cigar Lotto (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=132170) - Everyone who participates gets a number. Using the Powerball drawing, if your number is drawn, all players send you cigars. And when your number isn’t drawn, you send the winner some cigars.

NC Wishlist (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=128447)– You simply post a list of non-Cuban cigars that you’d like to try. Another CWer will come along, if you’re lucky, and fulfill all or some of your wishlist.

Birthday Gift List (http://forums.cigarweekly.com/showthread.php?t=127680) – Sign up for this and when it’s your birth month, other players send you cigars. The other eleven months, you send other participants some cigars.

For all of our members outside the US, I hear there a similar activities in the LCdH room for Cuban cigars. Being a US citizen, I’ve obviously never participated, but knowing some of our non-US brothers, I’m sure they’re great activities too.

Keep your eye open for our seasonal activities throughout the year – National Dog Rocket Day, Peep Jousting, Trick or Treat, and Secret Santa to name a few.

So c’mon folks, let’s liven this place up a little and get active in our community.

To increase my own activity level, I'll send a prize pack to someone in the first twenty posts to this thread. Only one post per customer please. I get to pick the deserving soul.
When in doubt.... ATTACK!
