    Adult leagues in SoCal/Inland Empire?

    Ah, hadn't really considered if there was a rink in Riverside.... that's not far at from my target area, good to know, I'll check it out. Thank you for the heads up!
  2. Considering a move to SoCal this spring and was trying to find some information on adult rec hockey in the area, specifically closer to Ontario/Cucamonga/Fontana. I've mapped a couple of rinks in Ontario but haven't found any useful info on their adult leagues (days, times, skill levels, etc). I suppose anything that's within a 45-60 min radius is workable, and depending on how my work schedule would end up, that really would ultimately determine where I could play, once I am settled. I'd describe my skill level as upper beginner/beginner "plus". My skating and edgework is pretty decent for a lower level player, but everything else screams beginner league. I started learning to play about 8 or 9 years ago and haven't stopped since, so I have a bit of ice time under my belt. I know leagues can vary significantly from rink to rink, so based on that info, maybe someone would know of leagues that I'd be a good fit in. Actually going to be heading out next weekend for a few days to scope out the area some more, so I may have a bit of time to check out a rink or two. Any info is helpful, thanks!

    Effective way to reduce wear on your palms

    Thanks to this thread I discovered Tacki-mac grips. Tried it out for the first time this week, good god what a difference. Feels terrific, and I actually think it's given me smoother control with my hands. And hopefully, my expensive gloves will last quite a bit longer, too. I'll probably never go back to taping the buttend of my sticks again. Love these forums.

    Post Your Team's Jersey(s) Thread

    Yeah, it wasn't till recently I realized how close the Pens 3rd and Maine pants are. Just about identical. The Panthers alternates are pretty close too, I think. For whatever reason, I see Maine team stuff surface on eBay from time to time. Shouldn't be hard to acquire if you have the patience.

    My D league's team jersey for the Puckhunters. University of Maine alternate. I had to buy the pants and gloves to match, of course.

    Your current equipment

    Helmet - Cascade M11. Came as a combo with a cage but I packed the cage away during a house move and can't find it. GRR Half visor - Oakley pro straight. Gloves - Bauer X:60 Pro, Reebok 3K (both pairs, not one of each - ha) Skates - Bauer Supreme One.8 (just purchased), Easton S5 (recently relegated to backup duty) Shin, shoulder, elbow pads - Easton S13 Pants - Tackla EX-PP, CCM NCAA pro pants (Maine Blackbears), Reebok pro stock pants (Car Hurricanes black, and Hurricanes red), and Bauer pro stock (TB Lightning/lowers only/missing uppers). Sticks - Easton EQ50/Zetterberg curve (weapon of choice), TPS R8, CCM U+06/Crazyovi curve, Combat/Ballistik .45cal, an old wood Sherwood 5030 (Stasny curve, I think) and an old wood Reebok 2K w/Crosby curve. Yeah, I have a bizarre obsession with hockey pants. They're taking over the garage and my gf wants to kill me (but she's a goalie so she won't win that argument). I just upgraded the skates a month or two ago. Looking for uppers for the Lightning/Bauer pants, which I grabbed from eBay.
