    i know it sucks that were all adults and nobody takes charge, but thats how it happens at unorganized pickup all over. not just anaheim. ive run into that problem at logitech in san jose, khs, anaheim ice and in ventura.
    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).

    If the management of the Culver City rink can set the clock for all their pickup games (Sunday AM and weekdays at noon), then so can other rinks. It just takes a tiny bit of effort (2 minutes after the ice cut), and the payback is that they'll more often than not get a full complement of players (instead of 5-on-4 with one goalie).

    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.
