The Great Puff Troop Rally
Here we are finally what we have all been waiting for, sorry for the wait but we needed to have all our prizes in place and all the stuff we need in order, the stuff you donít see but we have to do, itís more involved than just putting cigars in a box and sending it to the desert. We thank you in advance for what we know will be a very fun and successful Rally collecting all the things cigars, goodies and cash necessary to keep our Brave Soldiers supported like only Puff People know how to!!
I am so proud of you all the support we have always had is phenomenal and frankly I Love Puff and each and every one of you!! This is a big portion of my life so I do not say that lightly or without really meaning it, you folks are Patriots and should be very proud of yourselves!
The Rally is going to be bigger than ever before with more prizes than we have ever had so many some we are sending straight to the troops and not giving as prizes we have THAT many!
Ron, Dave, Craig, Jacob and myself as well as all those who donated prizes or offered advice and support have it all ready to get started.
So here are the details!
The Rally starts Tuesday September 6th and ends Friday October 7th or later if we have not reached our goal or if the Cigars and Goodies and Cash continue to come in! So the ending date can possibly change!
Here is how you may support the Rally in the form of Donations which can be in several forms listed below.
1. Cigars and cigar related products sent to the two addresses.
2. Cash sent in the form of Amazon Payments, Money orders or checks sent to the two addresses.
3. Goodies sent via wish list on Amazon from wish lists or other places sent to the two addresses.
4. Cigars purchased from any retailers and drop shipped to the two addresses.
Thatís the only way we have to donate now, sorry but no paypoops this time they gave us so much trouble last time we just cannot use them this time. I appreciate your using other forms of donating and am sure you all remember how bad they treated us the last rally.
Here is how we are breaking down the entries and how we are valuing the entries this is the hardest part as we are accepting several different items, Cigars, Goodies, Cash and Cigar Related Items.
- 10 cigars is one entry.
- 25 cigars are three entries.
Please send decent cigars we do not expect Opus X but for the most part if you would smoke it send it. If we receive premiums we will evaluate as we get them and adjust the entries to make it fair so if you send 25 cigars but they are say 8 to 10 dollar cigars you will get double entries.
So for each 10 cigars you will get a separate entry for each package of ten, there is no limit to how many entries you may have.
For Goodies we are hoping you will use Amazon or another retailer that way we will have an easy way of calculating how many entries as it will be based on how much the packaged cost you.
Cigars sent using a retailer is the same as the goodies we will have a way of valuing how many entries you get based on what you spent sending using the drop ship where you buy and ship to one of the two addresses.
Cash is the same for every $65 sent you will receive 3 entries and we will round up for even numbers sent.
The prizes are going to be separated by goals reached when we hit 1,000 cigars the first set of prizes and so on when we hit 2,000, 3,000, and hopefully 4,000 or more. We are hoping to receive enough to get us through Christmas and at least one month after; we always take January except for special need and continue in February so we need to have enough through February, which is when we would do our next rally!
I have a lot of help with this one, of course...
Ron (Shuckins) who will help in many ways.
Craig, (WyldKnyght) is our bookkeeper and will keep track of prizes and amounts collected and will post an update 2/3 times a week.
Dave, (owaindav) is my partner in sending to the troops and he will be posting photos of stuff as he gets them.
Jacob, (COYOTE JLR) is my local helper he will be letting me use his address and will open all packages take photos and post totals as Dave or I would do.
I want to thank Jacob for offering to help me in doing this as it is a lot of work. Charlie, Goldenmackid will be helping as he can and he will also have this on his site as well.
There are others I am sure that are helping that I just canít name everyone. The prize donors will be listed with the photos.
Here is where to send all donations so that we will keep a running total so if one of us is getting more than the other we will post asking for the stuff to be sent to the other until we even up.
