Beer League Players Attempt Red Bull Crashed Ice

Crashed Ice is a new Red Bull event. Ice Cross Downhill. Of course, the young studs who compete make it look relatively easy – relative.

Now look at some Beer League players try to get down the course!

It is hilarious!

2019 Doan’s Winter Classic

Gears Beer Hockey is proud to sponsor Doan’s Winter Classic!

This year Jim Doan added an indoor bathroom to the barn. So we have a popcorn machine, NHL Network on TV and indoor plumbing!

Our first year we had everyone bring a dish to pass and it got expensive for some and we had way too much food. The plan is to have about 24 skaters and four goalies which works well for the barn size. We will have cases of beer and food on hand. The suggested menu is pasta, wings, salad, and breadsticks.

The teams are drafted evenly from four categories, ABCD. Players are ranked and randomly distributed into teams. The traditional team names are Doan’s High Life, Team Porter, Lagermen and Stout Bros. (beer-themed of course)

So, to confirm your player spot we ask a small donation of $15 to skate. Proceeds cover the expenses of the tournament.

Check in to form teams by 10 am. Games start at 11 am.
Two 5 min run time periods per game. Up to six per drafted team. Three on three play. Recruit goalies!

With your confirmed donation, you will get a special coupon code to save money on a shirt or hoodie.

2018 Doan’s Winter Classic

Doan’s Winter Classic

Sixteen skaters and four goalies will gather Saturday morning for a day of outdoor ice hockey, a few brews and good fellowship.

Jim and Stephanie are gracious enough to let this motley crew of players hang out in their barn for the day and tear up the ice.

The first project is to sort out and rank the players. We will have four even teams with four skaters formed and start play at 1:30 pm Sharp. Three on three play. Each team plays each other once, then a finals game to determine the tournament champs. Teams and schedule plan is drawn at random from those present around 1 pm.

Team Porter

Stout Bros

Doan’s High LIfe

Lagermen

Goalies:

Each player can purchase a Doan’s Winter Classic t-shirt for $20.  Bring your own drinks and grub. Those with the talent, time and ambition are welcome to bring a dish to pass.

Thanks for skating last night. Special thanks to Jeff Rouse and John Finn for bringing guests. As long as we can get enough skaters, we will skate on Fridays.

Fridays are special skates for the after party in Skaters Bar. This Friday was exceptional as I brought lots of home made salsa, guacamole and chips to wash down with a few beers. Skaters Bar was packed with our skaters and GFHA coaches who hung out after a practice.

Wish I had taken some pics, but I was too busy chowing on the salsa and reliving the better moments of the skate.

I’ll set up a link for this coming Friday the 12th. I have a 7am flight to Denver on Saturday, so I won’t be hanging out this week! Need some beauty rest!

We are just a few short weeks away from the 3 on 3 tournament. If you are putting a team together, now is the time to do it. At least register the team, payment can be dealt with at registration. I’ll share my video chalk talk of the way a 3 on 3 game works.
