- Website:

- Getting there: The closest station is Hoshikawa. The others are Tennocho and Hodogaya. Give yourself about 10-15 minutes to walk from any of these stations to the sports center. Boston Rob should arrive a little earlier to pay the rink fee. Once you arrive, go directly to the locker rooms, change, then go to the 4th floor rink.

- Games: First to 5 goals wins. Repeat until time is up.

- Jerseys: Bring both a white and a dark shirt

- In case of rain: If it is raining in Yokohama, then hockey is off. If it's questionable, I will send a mail around 11:00am.

- Cost: Should be 500-1000yen/person, but it depends on how many people show up.

- Other: Lockers and showers are free. The locker room is a little small, so put your sticks off to the side when you are changing so other patrons don’t kill themselves.

- Beer: Likely around Yokohama Station.

4. Bye bye Ben

Benoit is heading back to Canada so that he can more easily be accessed by the CBC for interviews on North Korea. With that, I will attempt to recall my grade 6 French to bid him farewell: Au revoir, Benoit, mon petit ami. Bonne chance!
