  1. Rich, count me in. No cigar of course, but I will have an adult beverage to toast Bill. Thanks

  2. Jim Huebel says:

    Please add me to the list again this year. I’ll be proud to raise a glass to Bill

    Jim Huebel

  3. Steven Daniels says:

    Rich, I will be there to raise a glass to Bill.

  4. Kerry says:

    You Know David, Jim & I will be there, as we have for probably all the events. They will raise their glasses, and I will raise whatever I am drinking to Bill. See you Monday Night for the First Dinner, Tuesday on the Course probably, and of course Wednesday Night at Casablanca Pool for Cigars Under the Stars.

  5. Rich C. says:

    My first Cigars Under The Stars was in 2007 at the poolside bar. About 8-10 people who I’d meet on the golf course while smoking a cigar: “Hey, let’s get together at the pool bar this Wednesday after dinner”. Next year I called it Cigars Under The Stars.
    This year I’d like to raise a toast to my best Friends Bill Williams who had helped me since 2008. His passing will make it very different for me to be at The Mesquite Am and especially our 12th Cigars Under The Stars. Please come raise a glass with me this year.

  6. James Garner says:

    Rich – Put me on your list for Wed night. Always enjoy the evening by the pool w/ a great cigar, wonderful single malt & good friends. See you soon.

  138. Daniel Monico says:

    Sounds great Rich; excellent choice! Semper Fi; Ooorah!!!

  139. George Salcedo says:

    I am in, but per usual I do not want a cigar. I will donate because as a Marine I appreciate the foundation you have chosen. Please donate my cigar to a useful cause. Great job sir. STMF

  140. David DeRango says:

    Rich C.
    Could not think of anything thing better to donate to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
    You have my name I am in and I will have something close to a $5 bucks??
    Cannot wait.
    David D.

  141. Rich C. says:

    I have changed the charity group I’ll be taking donations for: Semper Fi Foundation. They have a much higher return rate of the dollars received and the amount used to assist wounded VETs

  142. Jim OHare says:

    Rich, count in Jim O. Missed the am the last two years but looking forward
    To seeing old friends and enjoying a good smoke while helping a great

  143. Rich C. says:

    I have researched the Wounded Warrior Foundation and it’s rating of 4 of 4 on the national charity register. Good enough for me and recommended by my Nephew who is a wounded vet.
    I will register our 8th Annual Cigars Under the Stars event and I as a proxy to accept donations on their behalf.
    Keeping it simple and easy, please bring a 5’er or five 1’s (US Dollars, not Canadian -lol-).
    Looking forward to seeing everyone. Please pass along to everyone that you must sign up here on our Blog thread!

    1. Kerry says:

      Are you going to set a sign up Cutoff Date? Expect to see me, just drinking though.

      1. Rich C. says:

    Rich C.
    A donation of $5 not a problem you know we are all in so you have my name I am in matter what
    Thank you for what you do and I will donate to the Wounded Warrior Foundation anytime.
    Cannot wait.
    David D.

  146. Rich C says:

    It is getting harder and harder to secure cigars because of the hoops the FDA is making the cigar manufactures jump thru. I have to align with an established cigar sponsored charity. I am leaning towards the Wounded Warrior Foundation. I will keep you posted. This change in regulations will require a donation of $5.00 to attend the Cigars Under The Stars and sign in sheet stating you’re over 21yrs old. I have lots of raffle prizes already, so we’ll have a great time.
    Thanks, Rich C.

    1. JOHN EDWARDS says:

      before you commit to WWF, I suggest you google the organization.

      1. Rich C. says:

        John, I did look deeper into WWF and found a much better choice that gets a much higher percentage of it’s donated monies into the hands of wounded VETs.
        Semper Fi Foundation to be exact. 94-96% of all dollars allocated to those they assist (all branches of servicemen and servicewomen).

        1. JOHN EDWARDS says:

          I don’t wish to demean charitable veteran groups, but the sad truth is that some people use the plight of our veterans to line their own pockets. I always check out any “charitable” group very closely before donating.

  147. Daniel Monico says:

    Rich C, counting down the days my friend. Plz put me down for one of your famous smokes! Can’t wait to see everyone once again…
    Best, Daniel “Boston”!

  396. Michael Kalchman says:

    id offer to bring some cubans down, but I just got my nexus card to avoid customs line ups at the canadian/US border. They specifically told me, do not try and bring cuban cigars through the nexus line, you’ll lose the card, and potentially be blacklisted from going to the USA for a period of time. Of all the things the US Immigration Department told me not to try and bring in, cuban cigars. I woulda thunk drugs or a cow.

  397. Ron Miller says:

    Will be joining for the beverage. Can’t enjoy the cigar. Doc’s orders.
