Anaheim location was fantastic...
The owners of the building screwed the Rink out of their lease. They used a loophole in the contract to sell the building and gave the hockey rink 90 days to vacate the facility. Due to lack of other options with real estate being the way it was in 2007, the rink owners went to the only available facility that was feasible in the short time frame... Corona Inline.
Long story that cant be made short... but fast forward to today and it is a nearly $3 Million dollar facility that is just waiting on the glorious City of Corona to approve their permits so they can put in the damned elevator and finish the pro shop. ( mhihi: )
West Covina is serviceable. It is a covered outdoor rink that swelters and hold heat in anywhere over 75 degrees. It is completely at the mercy of the elements... if its breezy, the rinks are dirty and people eat it and the glare off the rink between 4:30-6 is blindingly attrocious for goalies trying to track a puck. Plus side, it is cheaper that TSC or Corona... but I dont think $4 should be the breaking point between choices.
Also, if TSC is out of the question, I'd like to throw a bone to Blueline if he would be coming and cut his drive by two hours. He always troops from Palm Springs to TSC without much complaint, so I think it would be nice to give the guy a break...but that could just be me.
If this happens count me in. The Corona rink really isn't that far and it is a nice facility. That or TSC are good with me.
Left a message with Heather @ TSC for 3/20 or 3/27.
We'll see what availability looks like.
Welp... 3/20 only has availability from 4-6PM, there is a Kings game @7:30 vs. Islanders. This would mean either we plan a game watch for after or a hustle from TSC to Staples and stinky live hockey.
Tell me what your wishes are...
I'd be out. The islanders are one of 4 teams I've never seen and I'd hate to miss them.

nil... but I'll put in a call and ask anyway.
Last night I called Center Court in Santa Fe Springs.
And the guy said they have Pick-up Games, Tuesday, Saturday and some other weekday I dont remember the name. On Saturday from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM free and during the weekday its $3 also on the weekdays its from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
I guess that is what I will be doing.
If anyone else is interested it's an outdoor rink. And here is a link to the address:
10344 Orr and Day Road, Santa Fe Springs, CA
Really ? Free ? I might just have to check that out.
You might want to call just to be sure but I'm sure that is what I was told.
