Park Rangers Ban Playing Pool In The Daytime

SAN CLEMENTE (Reuters) - State Park Rangers have banned people from playing pool during the daytime because it encourages crime, local media said Wednesday.

The game is very popular at San Onofre Surfing Beach, especially around the "Old Man's" area, where pool tables sit under canopies outside the shack.

Head Ranger Ephriam said youths often played while drinking illegal spirits and smoking drugs. "They also use this as a meeting place to make plans of robbing people of their property at night," he told the San Clemente Sun newspaper. "We are not banning the sport, but we are stopping people from playing it during the day."

Table owners like pool tables because they earn income but use no electricity. Southern California expects to suffer power cuts in the coming months.

You guys aren't funny at all. I travel miles to San Onofre, I don't want to play games.

Dr. Ralph said...

Maybe you should travel miles elsewhere.
