I agree, i also get excited to see whats going to be updated next! I tried to take a pic of the exterior, but the parked cars basically blocked the new paint job. I also noticed and smelled the fresh paint on the inside of the rinks. I didnt make it over to the pro shop this evening, I'll have to check that out next sunday!
Btw, I played pick up over at Westminister "The Rinks" on Friday, and wow, that is one nice sheet of ice they have there. I hope they redo the ice surfaces at Lakewood when they repaint the logos at center ice.

Pretty sure they are gonna redo the ice, maybe even install new pipes. The B rink has already been better, the bare spots are gone. I guess the previous owners were hanging on to just keep the place open.

im going to sign up at the new Rinks in Yorba Linda which is run by the Ducks apparently. They have a beginner adult league that consists of a couple clinics and then a full season. I'm supposed to go there tonite to meet the hockey director and check out the beginner leagues first scrimmage. The guy tells me he will be wearing a Ducks sweater and hat and he is looking forward to meeting me. I didnt tell him I was a die hard Kings fan, but it will be funny when I show up there tonite with MY KINGS HAT AND HOODY LOL.

I just got home from my game and the Ducks branding continues to grow inside the facility. Each locker room now has a "locker room" sign on it...with two ducks logos. On the wall of the Olympic Rink they now have a huge poster/decal with a "ducks Stanley cup champions" theme. They did leave the Kings one up though, hopefully it stays up!

They re-did the ice and added new dashers on the A and B rinks. The lines are nice and visible! The A rink has a Ducks, LB State and Bombers (Jr) logos. The B rink has a center ice Ducks logo. The ice is really nice, a little soft right now since it's 90 degrees outside but no more sand spots or any other issues!
Overall it's getting better. New mats have been replaced on the B rink benches. Hopefully they will be remodeling the bathrooms, showers and perhaps the locker rooms soon.

Thanks for the update man. I played there 3 weeks ago, and none of the above you listed had been done yet. Our beer league starts up this Sunday, I'm looking forward to checking out the new changes. The Rinks certainly knows how to take care of business, I'm stoked that they bought the place and are making it a nice place to look forward to playing at. You can actually see where your league fee's are going.

When they get the third rink up and running it will be a nice facility. Great improvement over all..... but those ducks logos.... :
