I usually take a 1-2 hr nap before going to drop in. Have you gone lately? I'm too busy at work these days to go anymore.

I actually just washed my shins/elbows/shoulders today and this was my process:

1. Fill bath tub with warm water and add one scoop of oxyclean
2. Soak gear for half an hour
3. Scrub with a brush and rinse with water
4. Air dry outside

for gear that fit in my front load washer, i just throw it in there... my shoulders and elbows fit in fine. gloves too. if it's pretty bad smelling (like gloves can be), i presoak with an antibacterial dish washing detergent in a bucket, and then agitate it with my hands... then rinse, and put it through a normal cycle in the front loader.. comes out super fresh.

i have never washed pants as they have never smelled bad... I have removable lining for my shin guards so those are easy to wash. Honestly, if you air dry all the time, you shouldn't have to wash your gear more than once a year.

If you'd like to be added to my email list, just pm me your contact info and I'll be happy to add you. I've been on the site long enough to know you're a good dude, which is the main criteria when I organize hockey. My group is a mix of intermediate, and a few superstars, with a couple of newbs for good measure. We joke about how we all have to go to work the next day, so guy's will give a bit in the corners.

Awesome site, thanks for the link.
A goalie buddy of mine was telling me about this, but I never registered. Your link gave me no excuse not to do it now.

I use a front loader, just like Spidey does.
I spent 3 hours on the ice yesterday, and a total of 8 hours since monday, so my gear gets stank. Every 2-3 months I launder my chest protector, knee pads, glove, and a few other things on the steam function in the washer. The gear comes out smelling clean, and other than a little bit of wrinkling on my glove, it's all good. In fact, it makes breaking in a glove a lot easier when it's been washed.

Honestly, I don't have my gear for longer than 18 months so there's no concern about it breaking down long term. If your gear is deteriorating in the washer, you're either buying shitty gear, or the wrong machine settings.

Doing some early morning drop in tomorrow, 7:30 at RIC! It's free so, waking up a bit early will be bearable.

I know some people who work at community centres, but ice is removed from most if not all Ice rinks in Vancouver. If you do plan to organize, it's probably best not to do it on Tues or Thurs nights as there is a dropin (as 6thgear) stated earlier that a few people on here go to.

Hillcrest on a wednesday night seems doable. 20 skaters is 13 bucks a piece. 269 bucks for an hour, but 1h15m is what i usually find best.

Any input?

It's not too hard to rent out ice provided there are time slots available. RIC costs are pretty cheap and I've rented ice with just a couple people before.

http://www.richmond.ca/__shared/asse...Rates34953.pdf

Mon-Fri:
6-11PM: $348 for 1.5 hours, divided between 22 people = ~$15 a person
11pm+: $225 for 1.5 hours, divided between 22 people = ~$10 a person

Weekends are cheaper as well.

that sounds pretty good. hillcrest is very nice.. and the best part, it is a 5 min drive from where I live . Why don't you up the price to 15 and make it 1.5 horus

Ok i will call them tmrw and check 1.5 hour prices.

RIC is not bad, but Hillcrest as a facility is a lot nicer.

I will start a thread tmrw morning to gather people's interest and see what dates work best.

I keep hearing about this but I never find any info on their site. So how does it work? like any normal one? Just call in to confirm a spot? I wouldn't mind doing some early ice time again since I drive by RIC on the way to work

Haha yeah it's a well kept secret of sorts, but I usually just get to the rink 20-ish minutes early and hop on the ice, no call in.

Interested in trying this out, does the early morning drop in fill up quickly (ie. do you have to call in advance)? Also what is the skill level like?
