But sometimes there's only a few people out and the whole fresh ice and net is yours and it's awesome.
This is about right here. The weekend stick & puck's are a cluster, but they have weekday afternoon sessions that are better. Stick & puck here is usually "no shinny allowed" but if there are only a few people they don't really care what you do.
Reading some of the threads here I'm starting to realize we're kind of spoiled...
Our rink has 6 drop-in sessions, 4-5 stick & puck, and 4-5 public skates every week.
And we have another rink where our junior team plays that does lunch drop-in on fridays during the winter too.
