    I know Triwood probably won't start flooding till next week. They're pretty close though.

    This has been the thread I have been looking for since I moved to Calgary from Oklahoma in Sept.

    I always like outdoor ice... I'm in Auburn Bay but Lake ice is the worse for taking the edge off your skates.

    I usually play in Douglasdale, lots of buddies who live there and both Bow Valley kids, and some kids who are billeted with a friend of mine come out.

    Otherwise, I'm at ODR in New Brighton (which sucks, has no boards or lights, but its close) or the one in Copperfield.

    but if someone organizes a game, I'll show up

    I usually play at the Shaganappi Community Assoc. rink.

    The have a beauty little rink down there, snow bank half boards (enough to keep the puck on the ice), regulation nets, and lights at night.

    Also a great gas fire pit with benches for putting on your skates, and the ability to skate right off the rink on to a trail that leads in to a nearby field which is also flooded. Pretty rad for being in the downtown core.

    I wonder if we have the conditions for that kinda stuff here in Alberta?

    Once we actually get some decent weather for ice... I recommend Highwood outdoor rink. One of the few outdoor rinks which is near NHL sized

    Glendale has an awesome rink once it gets going, in a little valley so the ice stays really nice!

    Shawnessy has a great rink too, Zambonied every day, boards, lights. Gets busy though, my brother and I go early in the morning on some weekdays and are usually alone to mess about or have a few other guys to get a game going.

    I might be in the same boat but lower... my skill level is that of an American.. not even a good American. One from the southern United States.
