I realize there are many polite smokers and I thank them for their courtesy.  
The problem I have is that I cannot walk into any area where there is smoke in 
the air, so that to some degree means that smoking needs to be in areas away 
from the event.  Smoke does not disperse quickly in my experience, and so I 
have had to avoid tourney fields, some merchant areas, and be wary of areas 
around doorways where smokers often group, especially in cold weather....
