Fragrance Policy

Fragrance Policy

 

It is the policy of the BCA to provide a pleasant environment where Bridge can be played. The following are examples of potential sources of offending scents:

 

Perfumes and Colognes

Tobacco Smoke

Other heavy scents/odors

 

If any player experiences a problem with a scent in the Club, they should call the game Director.   It will be up to the game Director to determine the source of the problem.  If the source is another player, the Director will inform the player they are in breach of this policy.  The offending player will be put on notice that they must remedy the problem to be able to play at the Club again, or if the scent is so egregious, they must remove themselves from the facility immediately.
