    maybe we should ask him on the main blog pape?
    the man could be busy? he has a lot to do with less then 4 weeks.
    I will send him a note on the other page.

  16. Rich C. says:

    David, I guess we’re going to stay on the “unknown second page”, I haven’t heard anything back from Christian )-:

  17. David says:

    That is right Rich C. we must keep our priorities in line such as Golf, a great cigar and good adult beverages.

  18. Rich C. says:

    Is there any way to get our Cigars Under the Stars blog heading back on the first page? Maybe move the two early registration deadlines headings down (since they’re a mute point)? I’ve had contact of people asking me what happened to it and I had to check myself -lol-

    1. Christian says:


      I aplogogize for my delayed response on this. I have put another post up to get it higher on the list so people register. I am sure this will help. #’s are looking good for both the tournament and cigars under the stars!

  36. Rich C. says:

    Randy, I will have my digital camera there and would love if you could take on that duty again. Loved the previous years pics. If you have a better digital camera and can get me copies right away, that might be better for you to use your equipment. Let me know. It will be awesome to see you again. Rich

  37. Randy says:

    Hey Rich and Bill: The semi-official photographer will be there. I will try to bring my camera this year.

  38. Rich C. says:

    Christian, In years past we have had some special guests show up at the Cigars Under the Stars. Though unaccounted for, they are always welcome to enjoy a fine Altadis USA cigar and a drink. Can you check and see if there are any Black Gaming, City Council, Compadres of yours, etc… that might be joining us again this year? I’m just wanting to be better prepared number wise. Thanks, Rich

    Yes funny story, I have been to all of the Cigars Under the Stars, and enjoyed the adult beverages and cigars along with the fine people there to enjoy with and your self Rich.
    Plus I always enjoy a good cigar working in the yard and relaxing, and most of all I do not play golf with out a supply of cigars in my bag, golf is not golf with out a fine cigar.
    Thank you again for sponsoring this night.
    David DeRango.

  52. Rich C. says:

    Funny you should ask, here’s the long story: The first year it was fifty and we had 49. Then it was raised to 75 and we had 98!!! So this year I’m bringing my boss from New York to see what this huge HERF “Cigars Under the Stars” is all about. We will have an abundant supply of fine Altadis Cigars that night. The more that sign up, the better. I mainly need to target fellow cigar smokers but guests are allowed of course. I will make a final post/count of attendees about three weeks prior. The cigars handed out will need to be enjoyed while you’re at the event. The cash bar will be flowing with plenty of fine adult beverages to marry with the fine cigars. Come enjoy the cigar life (-:

  53. David says:
