Can You Help Our Youth Hockey Team in NoCal?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to be a good ex-Minnesotan and teach my son to love hockey. He's about to turn 7 and has been learning to play hockey for 2 years. He's about to start his first full season of travel hockey this Fall. Unfortunately now there is a plan to close the rink in San Mateo, CA (about 30 mins. south of San Francisco) where my son plays.
The company that owns the space wants to turn the rink into more retail space. In return they will build a public bathroom at a park and replace a soccer field with synthetic turf. An ice rink is a unique facility (especially in CA) that a soccer field just can not replace. The opportunity to play a winter sport like hockey in CA year round is pretty special.
One of the parents of his team has set up a petition to help save the rink we call home 5 days a week. It can be found HERE.

I hope you're willing to sign this online petition.

Thanks for your consideration, Caluofmn, Wild fan in California
Go Wild!

Editor's note: Please go sign this. It takes two seconds, and supports the game of hockey. Where else but in Minnesota would we stand up for hockey as far away as California? Put your name on something and stand up for the right thing.
