    National Sporting Body being proactive

    I am an elite golfer. For the last couple of years, smoking has been banned from National Events.

    Here is an email I sent to Golf Australia:



    Hi so and so.

    Not sure if you are the man to seek the answers from, but I’m positive you can forward this to the correct areas.

    I would like some clarification to the anti smoking rule put in place for the Australian Foursomes/Interstate Series.

    I am a reformed smoker, and use an electronic cigarette to stay off the nasties. I am just wondering what the policies are on their use during GA Events.

    They are not classified as smoking, however they do give off vapour to give the sensation of smoke. This vapour is nothing more than water condensation and is perfectly harmless to all. A lot of people in the medical field are suggesting people use these devices to help kick the habit of smoking, as they are a much safer alternative to traditional cigarettes.

    I was able to use one last year during the series in Tasmania, however, it is always better to get official clarification.

    Thankyou

    And their reply:



    Hi You

    Thanks for your email.

    Golf Australia will permit the use of your electronic cigarettes for the Australian Interstate Teams Matches.


    The GA officials who will be on duty at the event have been made aware.

    Kind regards,


    Its good to see a National organisation is open to these types of things.

    I haven't played golf in years.

    May have to do with the looks I got after drifting a golf cart. Almost rolled the bugger too.


    This is good though.

    That used to be my excuse. Unfortunately my set now is all sized to suit me, and not the cheapest either.
