I'd like to see hockey rinks for Ohio. And if I can take it one step further, the rinks for PA, MI and IN as well. We're a travel hockey family. I just got my TomTom stolen from my truck and I'm starting over with a brand new Garmin. I'm disappointed that hockey rinks aren't included in the POI for Garmin, like they were on the TomTom. ::::sigh:::: This feels like a lot of work. Thank you for all you do! -Hockey Mom


Details: A purpose of this POI is to provide a location list for all ice hockey rinks in the United States. The location information was obtained from . There is another list at , but it was difficult to use to create the POI, so I didn't use it. The two list probably overlap.

Ice Hockey: Ice hockey (called hockey in countries where it is the most popular form of hockey) is a team sport played on ice, in which skaters use sticks to direct a puck into the opposing team's goal. An ice hockey rink is an ice rink that is specifically designed for ice hockey, a team sport. It is rectangular with rounded corners and surrounded by a wall approximately 40 inches (1 m) high called the boards

A painting created in 1565, by Flemish artist Pieter Brueghel the Younger, "Hunters in the Snow", clearly shows figures in the background on skates playing a game with a curved stick and an object that looks like a puck. In 1799, William Pierre Le Cocq, in a letter written in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, England, provides the earliest known reference to the word 'hockey': “I must now describe to you the game of Hockey; we have each a stick turning up at the end. We get a bung. There are two sides one of them knocks one way and the other side the other way. If any one of the sides makes the bung reach that end of the churchyard it is victorious.”
