Not the exact article, but something fairly similar.

Cat, if people give you crap about it bring it to me or any other BPS team member or staff and we'll handle it. I'll be the one with a Lobster claw on me.

Dave, Paintball should be a family friendly enviroment. We are trying to grow this sport. Somthing as small as smoking in the parking lot could very well be a deciding factor in wether or not mom/dad is dropping them at a field.

There is no point to make guys. Smoke in the parking lot.


Thank you.

I am happy to bring and hang no smoking signs....

Nice attempt at diverting the subject, but attacking her parental decision making on a completely unrelated issue does not further the discussion at all. This thread is not "kidnapping at events" it's "smoking at events" and her concerns are completely valid.

I am sure we can expect stricter enforcement of this rule at the next event.

To the person that said smoking is hard to stop at outdoor venues you are a moron. Go to any professional, or college sporting event and smoking is not allowed in the venue, but in certains areas like a parking lot. I am sure there was not anywhere near the fan base at this weekends NEPL than at one of those events.

sigh. so I should just stop podding and walk away? I should stop my crawl up the snake and just walk away???

the tables were just a foot or two away from each other, under coverings - as Lori said in the email, tight quarters.

SO not a solution.

I gather you do not have asthma. I gather you do not see patients everyday who are suffering the effects of OTHER people's smoking.

So yes, I will make a huge deal of it, as has the last 40 years of Surgeon Generals, as have lawmakers everywhere.

I am sure the D.O.T. would love to learn of all the smoking that occurs near filling of compressed air tanks...

fact of the matter is the smell of smoke is only pleasurable to people that do smoke! I never breathed smoke in a non-smokers face and heard "OOOOOH that smells great, do it again!"

Compressed air is not combustable...And you'll have a hard time burning thru an air line with cigarette ash.

This is getting rediculus.

Cat, as I said before. Bring it to me or any other rep of BPS and we will handle it. I'll take a little more notice myself.

Ironically - this tweet just came across from the MA dept of health:

The Asthma Regional Council of New England's study finds New England has the nations highest rate of asthma http://tinyurl.com/2w3du88

The only reason people didn't stop smokeing was because they didn't know. I didn't know you couldn't until this thread. I think we needs announcements then if it offends this many people. Not many people check there emails often

No help needed...I get enough grief about smoking..I certainly don't need it from a physician I don't even choose to see.

This thread did become more than it should have and I hope you derive the results you are looking for at the next event, it makes no difference to me either way, I can smoke just fine in the lot. Pretty sad though that your way of getting your point across is to make threats about the D.O.T getting involved/smoking near tanks(which no responsible player does btw).

I'm off to kiss my wife with my ashtray breath....Have a great day!

I did bring it to Lori's attention, starting first thing in the morning. They did announce it.

As to D.O.T., since the majority of responses were the usual 'I can smoke if I want to just walk away' with total disregard for ANYONE else, I thought I would bring up the other quite obvious form of dealing with it.
