Mark your calendars, Hockeyfest 2010 will take place on Saturday, September 11th at Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. Complete details and pricing will be forthcoming from the Kings at a later date.
Nice to see they are doing this again... I really enjoyed last year's event at the Nokia theater. Surprised they are moving it to TSC though.
I spoke to one of the AEG guys last year and they said they were hoping to put it in the new hotel meeting rooms this year. Well that didn't happen so maybe the hotel was booked or didn't want a bunch of smelly hockey fans in their lobbies. There is not a lot of parking at Toyota SC and unless the Lakers let them use the basketball courts there is not a lot of open floor space.
I thought last year was pretty good, but I was hoping for more this year. It appears they are going with less. Maybe they will put a tent in the parking lot and have the speakers in the ice area. They can cover the ice for events and the bleachers would provide seating.
My wife thinks that Sept 11 should be a holiday so she is upset with the date.
I forgot they had a roller rink as well.
Still wish it was going to be bigger than last year.
I haven't followed Tip-A-King since I moved to San Diego, but one year (in the 00's) they had it at TSC. It was a little odd, but everyone fit room wise. If I remember correctly, they did use the basketball area.
