I'm... not sure what, outside of personal opinion, disqualifies a vape shop from sponorsing any LAN, but for us specifically you are right. Despite our venue not allowing the use, it would be a pretty niche prize that odds are the winner may not enjoy. I would encourage any interested to give them a visit though, I had the pleasure of helping them with a few tech issues over the weekend and its a pretty cool place.

I totally understand why people Vape. I don't but that's because I wanted to quit smoking. 4 months smoke free, couldn't be happier.

They have nothing to to with Gaming, other than the new Vapor/E-Cig that has a CPU in it. Historically Cigarette companies haven’t been allowed to sponsor certain events like sport games or concerts. Google and Microsoft outlaw cigarette advertizing on their networks.
It looks tacky for them to sponsor a LAN event especially when so many gamers are under 18. I look at LANs as wholesome family/fun, don't think Vapes fall into the wholesome family fun as all family members can’t participate and they don't really bring family values to Lans.
Well... I suppose I'm going to be bracing from Retaliatory comments coming my way. These are just my opinions of a "non" smoker who has tried E-Cigs though.
