Question Smoking in Private Clubs - 06-23-2009, 09:35 AM

This is a question for everyone in a pool league.

What do you do if your a non-smoker and your weekly match is at a Private Club that allows smoking?

The problem I have with this one Smoking Club is that the ceilings are very low (under 6') and the room is very small. With 50 to 100 smokers all smoking makes it unbearable!

I normally can handle any other Private Club that allows smoking, but for a week after playing one night at the "low ceiling" Club I'm hacking, coughing and feel like I have the flu.

I respect the rights of others to smoke here. I just need some suggestions on how to survive the night and the week following. I swear, the smoke is as thick as pea soup. Any suggestions.......help!!!

trade places and move here, where it is illegal to smoke inside (and pool rooms are closing)

maybe bring a portable fan with? or go outside for breaks?

I would have to find a different place to play. How could you play in a place with ceilings lower than 6 feet. Is this place located on the set of little people big world.

There has to be a better place to play.

If it's really that bad I just wouldn't play there.


Yes my custom cue also doubles as a light saber. You might say that it shoots lights out. You are now activated Agent 92395. Obtain the funds from Goldman Sachs and deposit into my Swiss account. This message will make you shit your pants in 5 seconds. Sev found it first.

I'm on an APA League Team and we are scheduled to play at this Private Club twice during a 16 week session.

Ceilings under 6 feet? Wow. I'm 5'10" and I'd be afraid of hitting my head.

Not to mention, jacking up a cue for any reason.

/just sayin....


Peace...

Tell them to open the door, and prop it open...

That said, as a 6 foot 1 inch (smoker) man, I might also have trouble playing there, because if I inadvertently jump up off my shot, I might seriously hurt myself...

Wear one of those surgical/swine flu masks.....should help.....maybe???

That, or you can just let your team know that you plan to sit out those two weeks....if you feel it's really a big deal, you might just donate those matches and complain to your LO about playing conditions....you have options...

Mentioned they should open a door or window. Their reply, "Last time we did that, we were fined $500!"....

Thanks...I just might donate them. I'm the Captain of the team and it's hard for me to sit out two weeks.

6' huh? i wouldnt even be able to get in that place. just make sure you have enough players and sit out.


That sir, is a very high quality graphite playing cue which tells me that you obviously know what your doing. I recommend giving me 10-6 and the breaks.

a) don't go to that club

b) eat plenty (and I mean plenty) of refried beans at least 4 hours before your play time.

c) carry 15 fire extinguishers with you and use then at will

d) bring chewing tobacco and start spitting on the floor

e) better yet, just don't go.

F) resign and let them know why.
