It wouldn’t be a proper U.S. holiday without a Cigar Dojo contest to go along with it! This week, we’ve teamed up with online retailer Payless Cigars & Pipes to kick off the Father’s Day festivities a little early.

This week’s contest is sponsored by Payless Cigars & Pipes, bringing the cigar enthusiast a clean, straightforward, and customer-friendly process for your cigar-buying needs.

Contest Theme: Father’s Day 2017

Father’s Day 2017 lands on Sunday, June 18th, but we’d like to show the dad’s a little extra love this year—running our special Father’s Day contest from Wednesday to Friday.

The theme is simple: tell us a funny, interesting, or unexpected story about your ol’ pops (include a photo if possible) and we’ll give you a shot at winning My Father cigars! (Clever, we know…)

While we love seeing pics with you and your dad sharing a stogie, we thought we’d switch it up a little this year to get a more candid perspective on all the great fathers out there.
