Happy Thanksgiving! Now Go Play some Hockey

Ice at the Xcel Center 

Posting has been light as of late, and I wanted to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!

For those in the Twin Cities, you can also work off that turkey tryptophan by playing hockey at the Xcel Center on Saturday afternoon, November 24th, no matter what your skill level is. Really!!! It’s cheap, too!

Barbara Garn from JMS Hockey got a bunch of ice time this Saturday at the Xcel Energy Center, home of the MN Wild!

You can find different skate times depending on your level. The upper levels are filling up fast, but there is still good room available for beginners.

I’m not sure of the requirements and maybe Barbara will weigh in. I do know that it’s an hour of a fun, no check scrimmage and you need to wear full gear. Payment is just through Google Checkout, so with a gmail address you’re all set.

This is perfect for beginners and intermediates, or for those with gear sitting in the closet who haven’t laced ’em up for years.

Chris, do you play? I was thinking you did but wasn’t sure.

    Awesome, thanks for the note! Requirements: full gear, no fighting. Spectators welcome and we’ll take an extra-long warmup so folks can do pics at center ice.
    It’s the little things you notice: peeking in the Wild locker room, how fricking TALL the boards are, the cavernous space with YOU in the center of the lights, all that cool stuff. Hit me up with questions. BG

    hi paul,

    i probably told you i wished i would have played when i was a kid. the most i ever skated was in grade school in someone’s back yard or the local playground. this does sound fun but i don’t have any gear. what level do you play at?

    Man, that was a workout. Thanks for putting that on Barbara! I was the one apprantely leaving everything in the wrong place.

    Chris, I’m definitely at level one, just a step ahead of level “what the hell am I freaking doing here?”.
