I don't think the burden needs to be on the players to do this. It's not really our job to figure out how to program their clock, plus sometimes the key (or some equivalanet of a 'set top box') is locked away behind closed doors, so we couldn't program it ourselves if we wanted (rink management breaks it out only for 'important' games).

I find that biggest culprit for at least AnaheimIce is people tend to call the rink and ask if there are any goalies on the list. If they say yes then people show. But if they say no people stay away.

pretty understandable especially for players like me who would be coming from pretty far, id be pretty pissed to not be able to shoot on a goalie.

let us know how it goes. i went two weeks in a row in december and it was really packed. i'm thinking it's because of winter break. hopefully it's not as crowded now. i showed up at 9:30 one of those weeks and i was the last spot. good luck.
