For more than 20 years Howard Porter has organised a friendly little neighborhood shinny game.
Just sticks, helmets and skates. No goalies.
Thanks Howard! We appreciate the run. You have earned a few years of just enjoying yourself!
Now the rest of us have the opportunity to keep this great Canadian night out alive and well. Feel free to help spread the word.
Beginners are encouraged to join us whether it is your first time on skates or your first time in years. We're all adults, we won't laugh ... (although we reserve the right to take your toque just to taunt you).
A special thank you to the guys and girls who have agreed to commit to a full season up front. Your $70 $50 makes booking the full season a little less risky. Anyone else want in for the full season? Season members are also welcomed to bring along any newbie for a free trial evening.
The game is every Wed. night from 9 pm to 10 pm at the outdoor rink at Jimmie Simpson Park (just east of Broadview, before Booth, on the north side of Queen Street East). See map here.
If you can't commit for the season, feel free to show up any Wednesday night. It's $10 a person.
Any proceeds will go to beer & pizza on the last night, or be carried over to differ costs next season, or be donated to a local cause (tbd). No profits.
Please remember that this is shinny with no goalies, and isn't full-equipment hockey. The etiquette is to keep the puck on the ice (even when passing), and when shooting to take only short, reasonably soft shots (and not long bullets from just inside the blue line, say). Lots of passing and short, soft, sliding shots are the name of the game.
