well, especially the stuff about not being worried about impressing anybody and just having a good time took a lot of pressure off my shoulders, as i didn't have to worry about having great sticks to share with everyone. Also, the stuff about gifted cigars was good cause otherwise i would have been afraid to take cigars especially if I knew i wasn't going to be able to smoke them there. I also ate before i got there, which wasn't necessary at this herf since dave (trishield) provided an awesome spread for us. Everyone was really generous and I had a great time. Definitely looking forward to my next herf.
