El Presidente Posted March 18, 2010 Share Posted March 18, 2010 We are not at our best today. the news of Chucks passing has hit us pretty hard. Still, with all that he has gone through over the past couple of years he never once complained, whinged or felt sorry for himself. He was the eternal optimist, always glass half full to the point of brimming over. I learned a lot from Chuck in how to handle adversity. Right now he would be saying "Rob...mate...pull your finger out and get over all this depressing nonsense!. You always told me that "Life is not a dress rehearsal" and I have lived the creed." I have a gut feel that Chuck will ask for the assignment of haunting Manuel Garcia for the return of Long and Short Skinnies. It will be nice to have another angle of attack To celebrate his life, we have decided to do undertake a "Skinnies" tasting, "The Chuck Vaughan-LLoyd Memorial Skinnies Tasting" We will undertake a Forum Tampa "Skinnies Tasting" every six months. There is no better time than now to start. Over the next week, please complete and post here a review of a "Skinny" in your collection. It can be Habanos or NC, I don't care and I doubt Chuck would either. Complete and post your reviews by Monday the 29th of March. All posted reviews (photo's encouraged) will go into the draw for a box of Bolivar Gold medals. I hope that each of you has a chance to participate in this remembrance to a founding member of FOH. A dear friend who will forever remain a moderator and a permanent presence. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
