Why do people make retarded websites with like no good information??

Do all community leagues require a membership?

Usually you can pay for a one-time drop in.

Spruce Avenue has all those. So does Caenarvon. (As I'm the dude who mentioned it on FB)

I don't know about Spruce Avenue, but Caenarvon is free. Theres also a couple rinks just of 118th Ave, a couple blocks east and west of Rexall. But thats a sketchy neighborhood.

Castledowns for sure. I play there at least every 2nd to 3rd day. No lights at night though, can make for fun times.

Maybe I'll start a new poll with just Strathcona Comunity League, Castledowns, Caenarvon, and Spruce Avenue.

Good? If these are all too far north for the south side people then we can get a few South side locations and do 2 games?

I was driving through a neighbourhood today and saw a rink open from 5-9 on weekdays and 1-9 on weekends. It looked pretty nice.

It's on 113th Ave and 113th Street (by the City Center Airport/Clansman Rugby Field)

That might be a good option. It'll be about like what...15-20mins for the people from the south to get there and from the north?

Or is it just my driving?

Yeah that sounds about right in traffic free conditions. It actually looked like a decent rink too, I just won't have time to try it out till next weekend.

Delwood is bar none, the best outdoor ice in the city that I've seen. Homemade zamboni and all. I bet it rivals Rexall these days.

Bump, I was just playing at a rink on 87ave and 117th street, the ice was ok i guess (little rough along the one board), but it has only 1 bench and I am not sure about lights.

That's the one like 2 blocks from the Butterdome? It's a little small isn't it? Does it cost anything as well? I was thinking of maybe hitting it up during one of my spares this semester.

That is the one, my EDSE class was just there playing shinny. Its not a regulation sized rink I beleive, but it was good enough to play. As far as I know it is open to anyone, but there is a sheet that says the rink is book during certain time, but I didn't read it that closely.

as are royal gardens (the best IMO...skate sharpening, hot dogs, tv in the "shack" with hockey on") and aspen gardens, both of which have great ice and are well looked after.

and they are 5 minutes from greenfields.

Ok so, as of right now the 3 with major votes are:

Castle Downs 153 Ave & 115 St
Mill Woods Campus Park 66 St & 23 Ave
Hawrelak Park 9330-Groat Rd.

Are these all actual rinks? Or do I need to re-do the poll after this one closes? I got a ton of suggestions in this thread, I can make a new poll including these updated suggestions

What do you say guys? Should I make a new poll with these top 3 (if they are rinks) and include the ones below? Or not bother?

It's a more central location that could cater to more people.

Hawerlak is a damn frozen pond, people. There is no hockey there.

Another thing to consider is at a lot of rinks during shinny hours you'll already have too many people show up, we bring 20 more people it'll be a really terrible experience. Someone should talk to a rink manager indoor or outdoor and see if we can book some ice time just for us. Dibs out.

Right now we've got 8 for Castledowns and 6 for Millwoods.

Should we do 2 seperate games? One on the north and one on the south? Or pick a somewhere in between spot?

You will need skate tags or membership. If you don't have one usually it is 2bucks to skate. Some rinks will let you book an hour for $30. Rin you are doing the best you can considering you don't live here and some people here should be a bit more appreciative.

Not only do I not live in Edmonton, but I'm also not planning on attending the game. I'm just doing it because someone had to do it.
