I like Aldrich for sentimental reasons. I have watched hundreds of games there. St. Thomas Academy is a very nice new arena, as is St. Croix in Stillwater even though the sight lines ares kinda funky. <p></p><i></i>

sta

Post by hillhockey » Sat Dec 31, 2005 7:53 pm

this has nothing to do with our rivalry with them, but i hate sta's arena. aldrich is so much better. why would you build an arena with only one side of stands? although they do have that nice room for the parents of the sta players. but so does nsp. <p></p><i></i>

Rivalry...HM has always been better than STA at hockey. This year they are playing at HM's level, as they showed early on, but in no way has there ever been a rivalry. I suppose as a player it might be different, but the whole of the arena itself for the fans is great. <p></p><i></i>

Rapids fans are pretty spoiled with their nice home pond. Hibbing is another arena I like, not as nice as the IRA, but Hibbing has a uniqueness about it. <br><br>Don't forget about Chisholm's rink. It's 900 degrees in there and the ends of the rinks are half circles. <p></p><i></i>

DECC/Cloquet/Rapids/Hibbing

Post by dangle » Sun Jan 01, 2006 12:28 am

These are four very unique arenas. The DECC and The Hibbing Memorial Center are great arenas that have had some great games over the years. The atmosphere is great at these arenas come playoff time. As for Cloquet and Rapids they are just great arenas. <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p100.ezboard.com/bmnhs.showUserP ... >dangle</A> at: 1/1/06 12:29 am<br></i>

Never been to Cloquet's rink, but our Pee Wee team's going there for a tourney in a couple weeks. The tourney schedule shows them using two rinks, which one's the good one? <p></p><i></i>

REA in TRF is a great one, I like the Sports Center up in Moorhead, BIG, New Hope is a nice one, Aldrich, Hibbing Memorial, IRA, Warroad, and Roseau are all my favorites. <p></p><i></i>

If the DECC is old an dirty, well, what is a clean rink? I think part of what makes the DECC fun is it's location. Right next to Lake Superior in Canal Park. Can't wait to hang out there in February. <p></p><i></i>

Richfield is a clean rink. Last summer we had the entire facility pressure washed and then repainted. The new lights will be put in starting next week and the facility will be one of the better ones. The ice is in tip top condition right now. <p>________________________________<br>Academy of Holy Angels<br>2005 GIRLS STATE CHAMPS!<br>2002 & 2005 BOYS STATE CHAMPS!!<br>GO STARS!!</p><i></i>
