I ask here last cause I am confident we have enough people who would be interested in playing. Once we established interest we will discuss a place to play. So just to be safe who would be interested in playing?

This is not just for long island, we are going to need to find a place that would be easiest for everyone to get too, soo any who is interested let me know.
I'd play.

I live in lower Westchester but my girlfriend lives out in Glen Cove, Exit 39 on the L.I.E. I drive out from her place on the weekends to Exit 58.

Anyone interested in playing should definitely come check it out. We are always looking for new people to join in!
What's this now??? Never heard of "The Armory" rink.

I use to live at Meyer Deck. I started playing deck at 12 years old over in Oakdale. Then Centereach. And Miller Place and also E. Setauket. Played a season at Bayport as well.

I was lucky to be on a good team, we went to tournaments, local and out of state, and did pretty well.

That may be a plan I'll PM you, and ask some of the other boards if Brooklyn works

Its awesome, and we were playing on Sat/Sun's early, but the heat is too much so lately we've been doing games around 6-7pm to avoid the heat. Its perfect around that time.

Decent place, I find them to be a little pricey though. Almost $30 for a RBK2k ABS replacement blade.

Aww that sucks dude. That surface from those pics definitely look like a wheel/blade killer. Check out the photos from the Paramus, NJ rink that I posted on page 1:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...53&postcount=7

That rink was built 2 years ago and the surface is smooth as butter. My wheels would last me 2-3 months playing on that surface and that's playing once a week. My blades wore down considerably slower too - much less than any other surface I had previously played on.

That Rink in Paramus, could possibly be a good location to play, could be most convenient for all groups, Philly, NJ, NYI, and NYR. Could it be rented out from the Parks Dept for like 5-6 hrs?

To again hijack this thread Im looking for any interested players around Albany NY. Me and a group of friends play on this outdoor blacktop rink most weekends and are always short people. Its a small rink(perfect for 4 on 4) in Scotia(10 mins outside Albany) and it has glass/boards in the majority of the offensive zones and regulation nets. Its fun and for all skill levels. Msg me if anyone is interested.

Hey, this is Tony.. who is this? Kevin, Kearon and I tried to get a game going for 7PM a week or two ago, but no one replied on facebook... I don't think anyone has been playing on the weekends anymore since it got hot, but if a game can be organized for the night we will be there definitely.

As for that game between ranger, devils, and islander fans, i would definitely be interested.

Anyone who is interested in playing out in Nassau, I know of two rinks with outdoor sport court surface in which you can use indoor wheels and blades on and they don't wear down.

If you're interested, PM me and I'll tell you details.

When I was senior, Dan Blackburn was living in his house as a rookie, and would hang out at our high school parties. Talk about a stand up guy, one thing you will never know about him is that, when John Davidson's oldest daughter's best friend did not have a date to our high school prom Dan Blackburn asked her even though he wasn't technically part of our high school, and took her as his date.

Sorry for getting off track, and really do appreciate the help, if any games ever come up let me know, I am usually up there only on weekends!
lol, thats cool. to 1 up u my girl my takes yoga with Brittany Tortorella who runs the class... shes strict im told! lol

Besides the popular spots like Baldwin and Long Beach? I know Lynbrook opens up every now and then when one of the refs with a key wants to play pick up at night.

Is that surface painted? Like that poly-eurethane paint?

Yeah, I'd love to play there. You play at Baldwin and/or LB?
