Random Act Of Kindness Contest

Posted on Thursday, August 29, 2013 in World of CO

EDIT: Congratulations Tactical Stogie!

ipw0105First, congratulations user: ‘socks’, winner of the last contest! Email me your contact info and I’ll get your sampler right out!

Now on to the new one :) This time I want everyone to help share of beloved hobby. How? By giving someone a cigar. I want it to be someone you wouldn’t normally give one to, or wouldn’t have thought about before. I want you to spread the love and maybe turn on a new smoker! I don’t care who (as long as they are of legal age lol) or for what reason you pick them. For example last week I gave my Terminix guy a sampler to take home. In fact just about every time I have someone over such as a client I ask if they are a cigar lover as they are leaving – if so, they get to take some home!

It’s on the honor system of course so if you cheat and say you did, well, karma’s a bitch. Just post below with who you surprised and share it using the buttons for an entry. I’ll pick a random winner sometime next week and you get a sampler :) Entrants must be 18+ years of age and have a US mailing address. Good luck!

    Ok, I done it. I think that was a pretty good challenge, because it pulls you out of your comfort zone, especially since not everyone thinks their Pastor should enjoy a fine cigar…lol.

    Yesterday my daughter had one of your friends over for a while. While I was talking to the young lady’s dad I asked him if he had ever tried cigars. He said a long time ago when He was younger he had tied some of the “Dutch Master” but never enjoyed them ( wonder why??). I had just got a few beauties in from Bryan Bulter over at CZ cigars, so I shared a couple with him, well we sat out on the porch fired them up and enjoyed over an hour of conversation and he enjoyed the “Indie” that I shared with him.

    It was nice to just sit and talk and share my joy of cigars with him.

    Awesome Labor day!

    saw the contest this morning and while I was on lunch getting gas at the local stop and rob the guy in front of me bought a swisher sweet, he was pumping gas next to me and i offered him a CAO Maduro L’aniversaire i had in the car. he was pretty shocked but thanked me. I think he probably tossed it but what the heck.

    My neighbor is a huge cigar smoker. He is the one that got me smoking again. Just recently he lost his 20 yr old son in a car/train accident. I saw home out in the yard Monday and I gave him a MUWAT. His name is Jim Cole. If I win. We will be sharing the sampler

    Thanks!

    For Labor Day weekend I went to my parents house to visit for a day. I was carrying a large humidor with me for the nest day at a fellow BOTL’s house. My stepdad smoke cigarettes, but I had no idea he liked cigars, until he made mention of it. So, I loaded him up with a decent selection, and made a makeshift humidor with a ziplock and a Bodega packet. I’ve been getting ash pics and thanks all week. I will be bombing him more soon. :)

    I Facebook’d and Tweeted this.

    I did this on Labor day. I was over at my friends house and we were smoking and drinking all day. His brother who i haven’t seen in a while was there. This guy is a straight laced dude who never does anything wrong. I offered him a cigar and he accepted. He only smoked about 1/4 of the San Lotano Oval I gave him, but still was happy to see him try.

    We had a little gathering last night at my house, I have out two cigars, one to my sister in laws boyfriend and one to my wife’s friend. We smoked them together, it was cool because I kinda showed them the right way to smoke and enjoy a cigar. They both seemed to really enjoy their smokes, variou PDRs from a sampler.

    A guy I work with was getting ready for his yearly fishing trip. He and I talked several ttimes about me starting to smoke cigars. I ask him how many guys are going on his fishing trip. He said it was him and his 3 sons, a friend and his brother in law. so I did some quick math went to my humidor and grabbed 6 stick (RP connecticut ) and gave tem to him the day he left for his trip. When he got back we talked about the cigars and after he called me a few choice words he asked where he could find them.. Enjoy my friend.
