Then I e-mailed the guy because I wasn't hearing back at all, turns out the messages got lost in my spam filter because the league was spamming me with crap years ago.

Same thing trying to find a program for my kid...you'll get last year's stuff, not this year's, and then no dates or deadlines or info.
That's probably the case. I don't think these rinks make a ton of money and they cut costs in areas they don't believe to make them money. Technically, a website doesn't make a rink money so it's developed for as little as possible and never updated. It's like mixing the old with the new at hockey rinks, most of them when you walk in it's like walking into a museum or the feeling somebody stopped time at about 1989.
