Wednesdays, and Fridays 6:00-

I can never make anything during the week at those times but...if you're interested I have a regular rental on Sunday nights that I attend at the Edge in Bensenville. Also open rentals Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the YMCA in Elmhurst at 8:45pm

Let me know if you want to show up to any...

during the summer I go to the 6-8am one on M/W/F as much as possible. It's a group of guy's who have been having rat together for 10+ years now, some of my old coaches, my dad, their friends. They're older (mid 40's) but there's a few college and high schol guys who go out. I think middle of the day Fridays aren't gonna get much response here.

it's kind of a scheduled pick up game of hockey, there's no set teams or stats or records or anything. Just get some guys together and screw around for awhile, so there's no NEED for guys, but the more the merrier.

I've had a couple playoffs games at the Ice House, nice rink. It's probably quite a trek for rat ice though. Too many other opportunites closer to home. You can tell them, and I'm sure they'd be welcomed if they come out.

West Meadows allows women too. I really can't think of a rink that would turn away women for rat or anything else for that matter.

It's kind of illegal to exclude women nowadays, I think they are even allowed to vote.

that depends a lot on the people. I know Center Ice on Sunday nights is/was mostly college guys who are really good. I played with them and some girls I know, I was alright but the girls were way behind. Definately not the M/W/F group though, they're older and slower, some can barely skate but it's a great time.
