New MSCI Smoking Rule
Last fall a survey regarding smoking in MSCI buildings was sent to all members along with their annual renewal form / dues notice. The responses were tallied, and by a 2:1 ratio, members expressed a clear preference to discontinue indoor smoking.
As a result, the Board of Directors voted on 1/2/20 to make all MSCI buildings smoke-free. The new no-smoking rule prohibits both smoking and vaping. It applies to the main clubhouse, the skeet house, the five-stand lounge, and all other outbuildings. Smoking will continue to be permitted outside all buildings.
The new indoor no-smoking rule becomes effective on February 1st. “No Smoking” signs will be posted in all club buildings during the next few weeks.
While understandably this decision will not be popular with all members, the Board of Directors acted in accordance with the clearly expressed preference of the majority of the MSCI membership.
