Please note our strong opposition

We understand that consideration is being made to place gambling (probably just a card room) at the Chrome Cafe a.k.a. Happy Days a.k.a. the old Shotzes on 172nd South of the airport. We live near this area and do not want gambling of any kind going in along the 172nd corridor. This stretch has severe traffic problems during certain hours of the day, is unsafe for pedestrians just east of the airport, and is way too close to families with children. There is a high school nearby. Those who gamble have a tendency to drink while playing cards. We dont need more impaired drivers on the road, especially not this close to our neighborhood. Please note our strong opposition to gambling of any kind in or near Smokey Point.
