In order to make the convention more enjoyable for everyone, there will
be no smoking allowed in the indoor convention areas. Both Red Lion
hotels have quite an open design, with many decks and balconies, and
the pleasant summer weather will make it quite reasonable for smokers
to step outside for a quick break.
Of course, smoking is still allowed in the bars, the smoking areas in
the restaurants, and in private sleeping rooms. We just want to cut
down on clouds of smoke being trapped in enclosed areas, and causing
problems for non-smokers.
