    Does anyone know what happened at Grand Avenue Park - Chino Hills Rink? We went to play there last weekend and both rinks are closed because of concerns of the fencing.(???) Did someone get hurt on a stray wire or did a puck fly thru the fence and hit someone?

    Well, and is there any other outdoor rink in the North OC / Brea area?? Just someplace to get some stick time? (not a league)

    Has anyone been to the Claremont rinks? Are the rinks open to the public for free skating? A bit more of a drive, but if it's good, we'll go check it out.

    Skating Edge in Bay Harbor is alive and well, they did a minor makeover mostly re-did the ice and removed the boards of death.

    From the Long Beach area there are a few ice rinks close by but the Ducks affiliate the Rinks have taken over Glacial Gardens http://www.glacialgardens.com/ now renamed Lakewood Ice. They took the Kings stuff off the walls and replaced it with Ducks stuff. Westminster ice is also close by http://www.westminstericerink.com but it is also owned by the Ducks affiliate.

    The independent rink nearby in Paramount that the Kings and Ducks were interested in buying but will not likely be sold is Paramount Iceland http://www.paramounticeland.com/ Paramount Iceland is truly a historic rink which is I believe still owned and operated by the Zamboni family, and home ice for the Zamboni machine. Built in 1939, I think this may be the oldest ice rink in So Cal, but it has really good ice. Also the ice sheet itself is huge. It should have good ice because the Rink is just blocks from the Zamboni factory, . http://www.zamboni.com/about/zamboni...zamboni-story/

    The rink still operates today just blocks from the Zamboni factory. In fact, it’s not unusual to see Zamboni ice resurfacers driving down the neighborhood streets on their way to be tested at Iceland.
    They have an in-house hockey club. Interesting thing about this club is that the kids in this club skating for the Ice Quakes really learn how to skate, they make good use of the full ice sheet in club conditioning skates for kids. When the Ducks in-house teams play the Ice-Quakes the Ducks parents often assume their kids are playing an exhibition game against a travel team.

    I used to take the clinics at Paramount when Bud ran them. He was no joke, it wasn't rare to see kids puking over the boards during one of his clinics. I almost played for the Paramount Lytes back in 1989, but had friends playing for the South Coast Sabers in Costa Mesa so I ended up playing my Bantam hockey there.

    Say what you want about the Ducks but they have saved many rinks in the area that would have gone belly up. The Kings just aren't interested in keeping rinks open, most likely because there really is no big profit to be made. Glad the Ducks use them as loss leaders.

    Anyone in OC skate at Lake Forest or Aliso Viejo Ice Palace? Never heard of either of these places before last night, but looking around looks like they have a decent schedule for hockey, including leagues. I had planned on going through the Anaheim Rinks leagues but this may be another option depending on how that works out.
