Subject: RE: Barnsley at Easter
Dont go with the idea of blanket bans it ends up with everyone missing out.I know "others" who will not go anywere with a full smoking ban.

Sorry there is no easy answer with the eternal smoking/no smoking argument.It has been explained that there is bad ventilation in the club room.I sing in a band that has non smokers as members.As most of our work is done in pubs we try and control the problem by taking a large portable fan to all our gigs and blow the smoke away from us.Maybe you could use this idea coupled with letting smokers sit in the rear of the room?
I run and attend regular sessions and there is no ban on smoking , this would be very difficult as they are held in pubs.Cottingham Folk club is no smoking so I do not go.

I shall be coming to Barnsley Festival(for the first time) I smoke as do the people who are coming with me, but as there is a ban in the club we will respect that and smoke elsewere.If it was a complete ban I would be going somewere else for the weekend.
