    TIKI HUT UPDATE****please read****

    Hi all - First of all I want to thank everyone of you for the support you have given me and the Tiki Hut here at Camp Phoenix, Afghanistan for the last year. The tradition of the tiki hut started a long time ago and was passed on to me last June (2006). I am approaching my final days here and will soon be passing the tradition over to someone arriving with the new group.

    This has become such a poplular tradition, the tiki hut rarely has an empty seat. The coolerador has been emptied and re-filled several times thanks to the efforts of all of you. The name clubstogie has been revered almost as words spoken in church. So much respect and admiration to all the members of clubstogie.

    There are times of course that the coolerador and free cigars are taken for granted and there are those younger ones that think that everything is a hand out. I apologize upfront for any solicitations that you might receive on club stogie. I will be handing this great honor as the keeper of the coolerador and link between the tiki hut and club stogie. If you receive solicitations for donations from soldiers in Afghanistan, with a mailing address of 'Camp Phoenix', rest assured that they are covered under the tiki hut. I believe that your generosity is unstoppable and many of you will answer to the calls of a deployed solider regardless, but the system in place works, we have sanctioned Tiki Hut nights with the coolerador available for all.

    There has never been a shortage, in fact in my year I estimate that we have received nearly 6000 cigars from members at Club Stogie, of which it has been an honor to send almost half of those to the outlying areas that fall under this task force. The cigars have been enjoyed by members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, enlisted, NCO's and officers, along with coalition forces from Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Romania, Mongolia and Afghanistan.

    I will be using this thread to introduce to you my replacement and I will be directing our new members here. You have become my family and clubstogie has been a sanctuary from the realities of where we are. The evening enjoying a cigar is a break that can never be realized unless you are here. I hope to post to this thread nightly until I leave, and hope to hear from many of you. I look forward to joining your ranks as a supporter of the troops and returning the favors ten fold.

    Thank you patriots!

    Edwin (mike)

    Mike,

    Those are some very strong words of thanks, but nothing can express how I/we all feel about the job you're doing and the risks you're taking for everyone on Clubstogie, everyone in our country. Cigars are the least we can do to say thank-you.

    Thanks for sharing your words here. God speed on a safe return.

    Done.

    Thank you for your service Mike, and I know we will try to keep our men and women in harm's way smoking good all the time.

    Vodka is food....who's hungry?

    You're welcome, Dave.
