Then surely this should be in the Health and Safety forum not Jokes. With an attitude like that towards health and safety this will get you into trouble young man ... more importantly, get someone killed.
It's ok - as the competant authority for pool tables, HQ DRLC have sponsored a new course in pool table playing and maintenance (P&M) that will qualify all service personnel as competant and current to partake in such activities.
This will run along the lines of a 2-week course contracted out to Burroughes & Watts, using snooker tables as the training medium.
You will of course require conversion to pool tables at unit level, to be conducted by your unit Pool P&M instructors (course to follow).
Surely we can only write an SOP once an MJP has endorsed the lesson (re: pool tables in trees) - as raised on DLIMS - as a lesson that should be taken into core post transition in AFG. Pool table experiments will be conducted as part of Ex AGILE WARRIOR 13, but will be ignored when resources don't allow for enough trees. Experiments will continue, but using billiard tables for comparison.
