    I wish some of these places had webcams so I could check on players before making the drive, I feel like a skate tonight
    Like I said, I wouldn't have expected to see that group out there last night - I'll swing by Highwood's rink tonight and give an update on the ice conditions there.

    Wow, Highwood's rink guys must have put in a lot of work on Saturday night because the pavement has ice on it on the north side. Still rough but covered and the next few days will allow them to get a lot more ice down. Very good early season ice, my hat's off to them.

    thanks. I'm going to come by later this week once it gets a bit colder.

    Was looking forward to playing some hockey really badly all fall. More so than the last couple of years.

    Blew my knee out two weeks ago

    I did, but it ended up being in Airdrie. I stopped by silver springs though to check out the ice, and they had some 3 on 3 going on, and more people arriving when I left. The ice wasn't in too bad of shape.

    Played at Stanley Park (elboya) 3 times this week.

    No boards, but massive, massive ice surface. Tons of people playing, tons of room for free skating, shinny, etc. Ice was excellent.

    Also a warm change room, outdoor benches, and stands. Kudos to whoever volunteers down there, a truly excellent resource for the community.


    Going to be double digits in the plus column next week, which is going to screw up a lot of these surfaces, so get out and enjoy them while they last.

    The one we messed around at is up behind extra foods on the east side. My directions to get in there were, 'left, right, left' so I didn't really pay attention to the street names. But google maps tells me it is off big springs cresent. Not much for parking though.

    So anything that survived the warm weather? I was going to play shinny with a friend but it was too slushy down in Okotoks.

    Highwood's actually going and is fairly good - checked last night, was quite surprised.

    Anyone want to shoot the puck around tonight?

    I'm thinking around 7? Highwood or elsewhere, as long as good ice is available.

    ^In much the same vein:

    If ever a complete beginner wants to play or mess around, let me know. I'm actually brand new to this though. Can barely skate any direction but forwards or shoot or anything. Did play some shinny against some 14 year old native kids and got destroyed I have no gear or pucks to lend though. Just have a stick, helmet, and skates.

    Trying to decide if it's worth waiting around here or going all the way down to Stanley park

    lets get something going this weekend guys...

    Shinny to me is hockey in its purest...

    every year, its a couple hours of shinny either before or after team Canada plays on boxing day (which is nice to escape the shopping mayhem) with a couple of beers

    Elboya Community Association (Stanley Park) was packed again tonight.
    Had a great skate for about an hour and a half.

    Probably 40 people on the ice total.
