Would it harm to ask politely on the website (and in future communication)
to smoke outside whenever possible ? I never said I wanted a crusade, but
do we need laws (or crusades) for common sense to prevail ? I would hope
If the organisation asks for it, it has more influence than anything
outsiders (or participants) are able to achieve during the beer event. And
it would only take a minute out of your busy schedule (probably less than
reading this thread ;-)).
