I wear impact shorts and knee pads when if pushing my skating skills at an open skate. Didn't always do this, but after about the 10th time I fell on the same spot on my right knee, I learned my lesson. If I am gonna fall at an open skate, it is usually right at the end when I am tired...

Forget the other people, go anyway. They are better skaters then you, and will avoid you. I have been run over a few times at Stick & Pucks by youngsters not watching where they are going, but as long as you are not skating full speed backwards, you have little chance of hitting a hockey player :-)
