The ODBC provides a tobacco-free and smoke-free environment to protect the health of its members, employees and guests.  At no time will lighted tobacco or other inhalable materials, nor any lighted or otherwise activated tobacco alternatives such as electronic cigarettes or similar products, be permitted in the Club or on Club property located at Prince Street and The Strand by a member, a member's spouse, a member's guest or any person who has been granted or has gained access to the Club or Club property as a licensee, contractor, agent or for any other purpose; EXCEPT that the Board will designate one or more limited areas on the Club property outside the Club building on the parking lot side of the Club property where members and their spouses and guests, and other persons who have been permitted on Club property, may use tobacco products or electronic cigarettes (exclusive of any other products prohibited by this rule).  No member or his or her guest, or any other person permitted in the club or on club property, may expectorate juices generated by smokeless chewing or dipping tobacco or any similar smokeless tobacco alternative products. 

Whether smoking will be permitted on the King Street property will be determined by the membership after consultation with the M&B Committee.
