As of 9/15/2014 I have recieved one reply on this matter this request is for all Riders Expect all hands to reply ASAP. Please Email my personnel email (Scroll down)with you reply.

Smoking within the Legion was a major topic of conversation at the executive board meeting last night. The main topic was corrective action. I know this may be hot topic to some, "No Pun" so please bare with me on this. I was asked by the commander to canvas riders and other legion members. There's a few options on the table that was presented to board. Understanding this discussion is for the betterment of the Legion as a whole, not in any way a personnel assault against any group (Smoker/Non-Smoker).

The Post desires to improve the Quality of the Legion Experience for all members and family(Period).

We each have our own opinions on this matter, so I will just give the facts on options and pros and cons discussed for each option.

I request each rider to please send me your input and please explain desired proposal with any other ideas. Send via my personnel email as to not get into bashing or name calling
(Hckydad55@msn.com).

We will not discuss at the meeting. Also please remember not to make personnel.

Here are the options presented.

1.Close off area over by Dugout for smoking. See (A).
In front door to right in corner where new games located.
2.Close off Pool Room. See(B)
3.Complete No Smoking throughout building
See (C).
4.Leave Smoking rules the same way See (D).

Example Pros/Cons:
(A). Pros: Room is away from main dining area, still has access to bar and bathrooms
Cons: Would have to do new construction to add vents, doors, and area and then Funding .
(B). Pros: don't see any Pros to this area.
Cons: would lose all pool table and gaming area/ no place to locate if moved.
(C). Pros: Healthier members , We would see members who didn't come in because of the smoking in building, cleaner air, not smelly, less maintenance on AC/Heating systems and ETC..
Cons: It would piss smokers off
(D). Pros: None
Cons: Outdated, nasty habit, membership will fall as it has been due to members not wanting to be around the smoke and going home smelling of smoke.

Recommendation: I vote for 3

Please voice your opinion on this do not hold back .
Follow this template for your inputs and send to me before Wed October 1st 2014 to allow for compiling so I can present during Octobers Executive meeting.
Commander plans desires to Have this issue resolved before Thanksgiving.

Thank you for your time and Service.
