HFBoards street hockey team / pick up games/ garage leagues
 
Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone was interested in playing some ball/street hockey. I know this place that is wicked cool to play, it has boards, nets, lights, and it is FREE. It is PERFECT for a bunch of us together and play some friendly pick up games...

Talent Analyst another fellow poster here, and I had many fun games at this place last year.

The place is near Galeries D'Anjou in Montreal, near Beubien Street and Galerie D'Anjou, Parc De Rosaires (sp?). Google maps always helps me but just to give you an idea it is near where the 40 and 25 intersect.

I know Wednesdays there is a group of friendly guys who play there, (I always played with them) but we could either join them or play any other day/night.

Let me know what you guys think, there is a lot of fun to be had guys!

Just ask Talent Analyst he was scoring a la Ovechkin :yo:

I'm always up for hockey games. I live close to there. I used to live even closer a couple of years ago.

Count me in... but please add some details... are we gonna make teams... things like that.

Hello Ozymandias,

Nice to hear from ya. I would be happy to provide any details you would like. It is early days right now but basically I am trying to get some people so we can enjoy some nice games, pick up games...you know put your sticks in the middle type of deal and randomly make up the two teams and then just enjoy a friendly game.

I say the biggest challenge is finding 2 goalies.

I suppose what would be cool, and eventual challenge would be to make a hfboards team to play some league...but first things first, as I say there is a lot of fun to be had playing there, as Talent Analyst and I can testify.

So what do ya say buddy are ya in?

I'll come for sure. I may be a goaltender this year, I plan to buy a full stock. :)

Galchenyuk x 27 03-11-2009 06:26 PM

Id be in to play.
I've played ice hockey and baseball there before so I know exactly where it is.


fun place to play

Giontatas 03-11-2009 06:42 PM

Hey guys

I would love to get in and play with you guys. I'm a goalie as well, have a nice set of Street equipment that passes off as ice stuff as well almost.

My only problem is I'm not a driver. So if anyone could provide an idea of public transpo, I'm all for this.

Brass 03-11-2009 06:43 PM

Im interested.. lol

StlRams514 03-11-2009 08:03 PM

It's be something really cool, but I'm a Westie... Kinda sucks for travel, unless we got a few of us together and did some kinda carpool thing? I could prolly get a friend or two to join in too.

Magic33 03-11-2009 08:13 PM

Depending what day etc I would be down. Im a westie also though, but shouldn;t be much of a problem. Could be a pretty cool idea! Would you have to rent to space or something?

keepcalmandbeninja 03-11-2009 08:32 PM

You do not need to rent the place...and yes in the winter we play ice there, but the winter is gone now...and it is time to set up the ball hockey...

For our Westie brethren...I think the car pool idea is excellent, also keep in mind, you are playing for free so it is worth the gas money, especially if you car pool.

Gentleman, please PM me your contact details so I can email, sms, telephone you whenever we could get some games going...What do you guys think of weekday evenings? I suggest we play on the days the habs dont play....

The big spot lights are not always on etc, we have to be nice with the park rangers (they are girls so if any of you are charming...)

We should take advantage of natural sunlight and play around 5:30/6
just my suggestion.

DeVries* 03-11-2009 11:17 PM

I'd play goalie, but I'm not buying a used equipment until this summer, maybe fall. Well not until I'm professionally stable:(

I'll keep in touch with you during this if possible!

patsbury 03-12-2009 12:12 AM

As soon as I get my car back, I'm in! Not too far from my appart (ahuntsic)

Analyzer 03-12-2009 02:11 AM

****.

I wish I was still in Montréal. I'd be down for this, even if I had to ride the metro 45 minutes both ways.

StlRams514 03-12-2009 02:54 AM

I could take the choochoo or bus too. Also, it depends when I work and stuff. We'd have to try to get this to work on 1 or 2 days a week, that way I could give my availability.

Thanks for all the enthusiastic responses guys, all interested please PM your email address so we can build up a nice little email list to better help organize some games.






Analyzer: That is dedication man! WOW lol, sooo where do you live now? You can still be on the email list...you never know when you may be in my neck of the woods.

Basszor 03-24-2009 02:18 PM

I can say that it IS cool. I've played with them all summer and I intend to do so again so everyone come in great numbers :)

Gros Bill 03-24-2009 02:23 PM

I used to be a pretty good street hockey player. Ruined my skates, though.

LOL, get some new skates just so I can see that!

I'm looking forward to playing some street hockey with you guys as soon as my courses are finished, unless its moved from Wednesday.

BTW what time do you guys plan on finishing tomorrow? Maybe I'll have time to drop by after my course.

Magic33 03-24-2009 02:41 PM

something is going down tomorrow???

Gros Bill 03-24-2009 02:43 PM

You guys should ask McPhee, he's a great goalie. Plus, when he takes his shirt off, his belly button gives him an extra trapper and his rebound control is amazing.

keepcalmandbeninja 03-24-2009 02:45 PM

Yes!!! Tomorrow...WEDNESDAY MARCH 25, 6pm! the official inauguration of hfboards and friends friendly pick up ball hockey game : )


Be there or be square!

jnthomas 03-24-2009 02:53 PM

For anyone wondering where it is, I found it on good old goolemaps

Hockey Ball location

Turtleneck Plek 03-24-2009 02:58 PM

Is there a subway station close to the park? I'm looking on Google Maps but my internet sucks so I can't really see anything.

Closest is the Radison subway station. Then a 15 minute walk northwest should land you at the park.

Thanks! That isn't bad, I could definitely do that.
