CSWC Stay Strong Competition. Each year, the Cigar Smoking World Championship hosts dozens of qualification tournaments all over the world. Winners of these qualifiers win a ticket to the finals in Split, Croatia. The qualifiers take place in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America. But the number of qualifiers is growing every single year.
Yet this year, only a few qualifying events took place. All the others are canceled due to the current pandemic. Covid-19 or the coronavirus has the world in a lockdown. So the people behind the Cigar Smoking World Championship came up with a solution. An online version of the tournament, using the popular app Zoom. The rules remain the same, smoke your cigar as slow as possible. Don’t burn the ring, don’t talk in the first five minutes. Only use 2 cigar matches to light the cigar. And as an added rule, the cigar has to be visible on camera throughout the competition.
There will be many online competition moments for the Cigar Smoking World Championship Stay Strong Competition. They will be hosted for different timezones. At the end of the season, a list with the 30 best competitors will be compiled. And those 30 competitors all get raffle tickets for wonderful prices. The prices are made available by the sponsors and partners of the Cigar Smoking World Championship. Prices include a Cuervo y Sobrinos watch, a unique Les Fines Lames cigar knife, Boveda butlers and more.
A list of zoom regions will be posted on the competition webpage soon. On that webpage, you will find more information, such as the Zoom ID and the password. More information about the prices and where to get the official Rocky Patel CSWC Mareva. Because that is the cigar you will need to be able to compete in the competition. The first event will be today, 8 PM CET..
