We'd like to emphasize that WCA Meetings are open to the public, and while each weekly meeting typically has a featured speaker, all attendees are invited to participate in the often very lively commentary session that follows the presentation.
Thanks to our special exemption from the Clean Indoor Air Act, smoking is permitted during meetings. As we like to say in the WCA, "Which would you rather have me do? Light up a cigarette, or tear out your throat, rip open your ribcage, and feast on your still-beating heart? Pick one. Now."
