2009 Jakarta Invitational Ice Hockey Tournament

January 12, 2009


We want to confirm to you that the newly formed Jakarta Hockey Association will be hosting our own invitational ice hockey tournament on March 6-7th (Friday and Saturday evenings 4 pm – 10 pm) at Mall Taman Angrek (www.skyrinkjakarta.com) in Jakarta.

We are limiting the number of teams to six, (minimum 4) to accommodate the rinks need to not close all programs on these dates. The rink (and the mall it is located in) is very upscale and modern, but as the rink was designed primarily for figure skating, we are required to use a roller hockey puck to minimize the potential for damage to the rink and surrounding areas. The puck is easy to handle and shoot and makes for a safe, fast game. The rink provides excellent viewing for spectators with tempered glass surrounding the rink and it is a really nice environment, with plenty of places to eat.

As those who have played on the rink will agree, the quality of the ice surface is good and we, the tournament committee feel that we can run a quality, 4 on 4, fast paced and safe hockey tournament, with a slightly modified format to meet the local needs. If you are looking for an NHL quality rink, we are not the tournament for you. If you are looking for a great weekend of hockey on and off the ice, we look forward to seeing you in Jakarta.

Ulaan Bataar Hockey Tournament – Jan 29 – 31 2009

November 24, 2008

My Macau team is hoping to play this year in Ulaan Bataar but as is so often the case when we play outside Hong Kong, we are short some bodies. Do any of you guys want to play in this tournament, or know anyone who does? The deadline they have set December 10th so let me know ASAP if you want to play.

January 29th to 31st, Ulaan Bataar, fly in through Beijing, Cost USD 1000 per team, supposedly full contact, although I don’t know how much hitting I’ll be doing as it is an outdoor rink, Hotel 50 USD per night, hotel is apprently about 200 metres fromthe rink. Mongolians drink a lot of vodka and other stuff.

It’s the Beijing guys who organize it, check out http://www.beijinghockey.com for photos of the rink and other info. Right now we have 5 guys including a goalie who are solid if unspectacular and one old fat, not fast guy. (me)
