Boys, it's time for another Box Pass.  Abe Frohman (Frank) had the idea to kick this off in April, but life has gotten really jammed up for him, and so he has passed the baton.  

Uncle Rich and I are working together to launch and oversee this pass.  Rich had the great idea of including in the box some new bath robes for each participant, embroidered with the Dr. Grabow spade...then quickly realized that the box would need to be the size of a washing machine...so he scrapped that idea.  Instead...the box will contain tobacco samples, and possibly some other tobacco / pipe related trinkets.  Details to follow.

The official "guidelines" will follow right here, very soon, but for now please make a post here to indicate if you'd like to be included.  Being included means that you will receive the box at some point over the 2 or 3 month period that this thing lives...that you'll sample some stuff...put some stuff in...and that within several days, you will cover the mailing fee to send it to the next guy in line.  Last year when it was close to 10 lbs, I believe it cost me about 10 buck mailing it via USPS.  

One guideline immediately.  For reasons that Rich and I will share when the guidelines are posted...we need to insist that all participants have been DGCF members for a minimum of 90 days, and, that you've made a minimum of 50 posts on this forum.  So for you newer guys...if you're getting close to those numbers, go ahead and post your interest...and we'll be sure that you've surpassed 90 days and 50 posts before the box comes your way.  For those green members which are ineligible...what I did last year was to share some of the spoils at the end with them, and all they had to do was cover the postage.  We may do that again...so no matter what...everyone who wants 'in' can play.

Let's hear from those who want to participate!

I remember something about that.  Seems like you spent 25 bucks.  Someone at USPS upsold you, because everyone else was spending about 10 bucks.  You have to "tell them" which method to use.  If we're keeping it to about 10 bucks shipping...is it worth it then?  If not, no worries!!!

Guys...I need a couple of volunteers to send their box donations now...so that I can include them in the box for the early recipients...so that they have plenty to choose from.  Let me know please.
