Dark Days / Maduro Pass

With Winter theoretically approaching, (despite the endless summer the South seems to be stuck in... we had a heat index of 102* today with only the tease of mid-80's relief sometime next week) the days are getting shorter and darker, and I think it's time for another box pass.

If you're interested, sign up below and I will put together a Dark Days box pass.

What:
This pass is intended for cigars with dark wrappers. Maduros, oscuros, something sun-grown... there won't be any argument over exactly how dark a stick has to be... just use your own judgement.

Duration:
- Sign-up will be open until 11:59PM Pacific time on October 13th. If you aren't signed up by then, you ain't in this one. Late sign-ups are not permitted once the pass order is posted on the 14th. If there's significant interest, I will consider doing a second round after the first one is complete. This will be done in a different thread, if at all.
- Sign up with your name and your state. I will reorganize the shipping order before we get started so we're not zig-zaging from coast to coast.
- Minimum of 6 members for this pass. Hopefully, it will be many more than that. But, if we don't have at least 6 people signed up by the 13th, this pass is cancelled.
- The pass ends with the guy who started it (me).

Rules:
1. This is only for NC sticks
2. Valuation: when the box leaves, I will post a list of the contents and their value. Value will be based on Cigars International for a single stick at their regular price, not some crazy bogo-once-in-a-lifetime sale price. When you are done with your picks and puts, the box going out should have about the same value as when it came in. If you take a $10 stick, it is perfectly fine to replace it with two $5 sticks, and the reverse is also welcome. Please don't undervalue your puts in an effort to inflate the value of the box.
3. Duplicates are fine, but no more than 2 of the same stick should be in the box at any given time.
4. Turn around should be within 3 business days.
5. You must have a feedback score of at least 2 to participate. If you don't have 2 positive transactions, you have until the end of the sign-up period to get that squared away. Members who sign up but do not have 2 positive transactions by 11:59PM on the 13th will be removed from the roster for this pass.
6. Post pictures of your picks, puts, and the complete box as you send it to the next person.
7. Post tracking when you ship.
8. If you bomb the next guy in line, please make it clear which sticks are a bomb and not part of the pass.

I've never done one of these before, but as a developing maduro-head, this seems like a great time to start!
