Fellow Cigar Aficionados,
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who joined me for our recent all-member smoke sessions. Your presence was truly appreciated. For those who couldn't make it, please know that you were missed. These gatherings mark the beginning of a series of regular all-member smokes that we plan to host on Cigar Keep in the future.
As many of you are already aware, I've recently become a part of the Cigar Keep team. It's both a responsibility and a privilege to contribute to this remarkable platform and move it forward.
Our foremost priority was to gather input from all of you regarding the future direction of Cigar Keep. This platform is, after all, a community of devoted Cuban cigar enthusiasts. The success of our recent all-member smokes was truly remarkable. We organized two separate Zoom sessions, each drawing in over 25 participants from at least 10 different countries. This speaks volumes about the global reach of our community, with individuals from diverse backgrounds, all sharing a deep passion for cigars and the art of collecting. The eagerness to connect and share experiences was truly heartwarming.
The consensus among the feedback we received was clear: there's a strong desire for increased opportunities to interact as a community, both through virtual and in-person events. In essence, the call is for more vibrant community engagement. Additionally, there's a strong appetite for more content from the talented fraternity of smokers that make up our wonderful community.
Now that summer has come to a close and I'm back in the office, I'm dedicated to laying the foundation for upcoming events, virtual member smoke sessions, and fostering deeper connections with all of you. It's important to note that the team supporting Cigar Keep has become more streamlined, which might lead to some delays. However, I want to assure you that I am fully committed to utilizing my personal resources from KirbyAllison.com, as well as the support of the community, to further propel the growth of Cigar-keep.com.
Thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support. Together, we'll continue to make Cigar Keep a thriving hub for all things related to the world of cigars.
