I think that's enough to kind of get us started. Anyone else who wants to come and we can just drop the price as the group expands.

So at this stage, let's say we did this...

Saturday, May 12th
12:30PM - 1:45PM
Burnaby 8 Rinks
Burnaby, BC
$223.75 + Taxes = Approx. $250.60 / 18 People = $13.92 (round up to $14.00)

(Link to Prices and Times: http://icesports.com/burnaby8rinks/ice-rental.aspx)
Cheaper with each person who commits.

I may have some friends that are not on HF that might want to play.

Is it drop-in or stick and puck?

EDIT: And some on HF....*cough* EroticBakery *cough*

I'm not sure what you mean by 'light contact', when you have a mixed level drop in game it's generally assumed that it's no contact.

Also as far as my on-ice competency goes...I'd rate myself a 3 or 4 out of 10. The scouting report would say I have to work on my skating and shot power big time. I am: a team player, fun to be around, passing skills not terrible. Think Derek Boogaard without the speed and shot wrapped into the size of Nathan Gerbe.

Oh god...that scouting report is too real.

This would be us renting the ice - so basically doing whatever we want. I think having an organized shinny game (get everyone there, divide into two teams and have some fun) is the idea. I think just having everyone bring sticks/gloves/skates would be good as not everyone here has full hockey gear.

^ Yeah, I was mainly wondering because I don't have the luxury of equipment past gloves, skates and stick (and helmets of course). And a jock....I'm the guy who'll have something bad happen if I don't wear one.

Sounds easier to shoot

Me personally though, there's not a lot of areas on body that are tender that won't be covered up (except for my heart). Other than that, no complaints here. Now if only I could find a pair of skates made for people with flat feet.....

Also - if anyone's going to bring a friend, let us know here so we can add it to the body count and bring the cost down for each individual person.

Gotcha. I'm sure I can find at least 1 or 2 people that would want to provided I'm not working that day.

Burnaby 8 Rinks
Burnaby, BC
$223.75 + Taxes = Approx. $250.60 / 15 People = $16.71 (round up to $17.00)

(Link to Prices and Times: http://icesports.com/burnaby8rinks/ice-rental.aspx)

We have two goalies and around 13 skaters, we could have a pretty good game. Full gear for goalies, sticks/gloves/skates for the skaters? (8 Rinks also has a sport shop that does skate rentals and stuff, IIRC. I could probably scrounge up some extra sticks)

Then we can head upstairs to the restaurant/lounge/bar after.

I don't mind fronting the cost and I could probably pick some people up that day. I'd be in North Van headed to Burnaby.

How does that all sound?
i have 3 spare left handed sticks that i can bring. i also recommend everyone to at least have hockey pants and shin pads to help lessen the pain if they fall.

If we all had full gear or whatnot, I guess the majority could decide on those items.
if we are going to use a foam puck then we might as well play ball hockey, ice hockey without the vulcanized rubber disc just isnt the same....

another idea is to play the game with a plastic puck but switch to a real puck when we do drills/shootout games?

amen to the shin pads part. as long as everyone is competent on skates a little bit of contact will be more fun

i have an entire spare set of gear for someone to play out. i'd say they will fit anyone from 5 feet 6 to maybe 5 feet 11. let me know if you want to borrow it. (buy a new cup though!)

try using a set of grafs (a more agressive pitch = less flat feet from my experience) and adding super feet in there.

I would go with a shin guard, elbow, gloves, helmet minimum or else the rink will kick your ass in terms of liability.

Try RBKs, CCMs, or Eastons in E width. If none of those feel right, give an EE width Bauer One Supreme a try.

I think my interest would wane if a foam puck is being used, and even if it is stick and puck, I'll wear full gear.

I guess there will be a huge variety in skill level playing. I played rep growing up. Stopped at 18. Played Platinum, Gold and Silver roller hockey from 23 to currently at 39 (last year was my last Platinum season though). I got back to playing coed 2 years ago and have spared as high as div 6 at 8 rinks.

Was a date already decided on? The only time that makes sense for me is anytime after mid June.

Last time I played regularly I led my business amateur league in scoring, but that was a good 5-6 years ago. Last time I played was in a charity tournament for the homeless. Face-offed against Cliff Ronning, but got my ass whooped. Took on more of an energy type role. Who knows where I'll be at here...

Hey guys add me to the list. 55 and slow, but I usually play 3 or 4 times a week. Have played in beginer leagues where some of the people can barely skate, and have played in leagues where there are ex NHL players, so I can handle just about any skill level.

also, if this gets to be a regular thing, you can get very cheap ice time in Bellingham, particularily at night. Could book rooms at a cheap motel, booze is a fraction of the price it is in Canada, and could have a great game.

Have played visiting BC teams 2 or 3 times here.

I generally agree with the sentiment that shin pads, elbow pads and pants are likely the smart way to go...Also tend to agree with using a real puck :p....foam puck just detracts...I mean, it's March 22....if we're not doing this until May-ish that gives people lots of time to wrangle up some gear...

Being a goalie, please use the vulcanized pucks, no foam. It's just not the same with foam. Count me out if you'll be using foam pucks. Also, I'm only in for ice hockey if people decide to set up for road/ball hockey.

Otherwise, the date's great, I'm in for sure. Harder the shots the better

You're not wearing road hockey goalie gear are you?

No kidding. Without a little weight, it's impossible to shoot accurately or fire a hard pass. Foam pucks will bounce like mad.

no, they are ice gears... but senior level ice gear are not built for anything over 85 mph. my gloves and pads are pro gear so they are good for any shots but my chest protector and mask are the regular senior levels that you see in stores .... if i take a 90 mph shot to my head with that mask on i am probably out 4 weeks

This is going to be a lot of fun. Losing team buys the first round?
