Both Pittsburgh Ice and Rostraver have melted, and I have it on good authority that Center Ice has picked up tryouts from other rinks if they do happen, but are also planning on melting one rink at a time (Minus the Badgers rink, which is already melted anyways to convert to roller) if they remain closed.
So far by what I’ve heard they’re going with the PIAA’s ruling of the two week hiatus, but I’m starting to suspect that we could’ve seen the last games played for the 2019-20 season. I hope I’m wrong, but only if the risk is gone.
We did a broadcast of the Scholastic showcase on Sunday from Alpha for PGH Hockey Digest, best WiFi signal I’ve had all year. Will be back for PIHL competition there. They’re okay with other broadcasts. I called a Vengeance game on last minutes notice to open the season, so I’m familiar with their setup. I used to have a private gigabit router at CIA (I broadcast club Broomball there) but they upgraded their WiFi and we lost our connector port. Tried to do a game two weeks ago and it was one of the worst connections I had. Great people to work with, though. I don’t understand why LiveBarn has an issue there, all signals are Hardwired directly into the internet. As for Alpha.... I’m not sure. The press box has its own internet connections, which confuses me.
Actually just found out about this forum today, this is Mitch from Pittsburgh Hockey Digest. Just wanted to thank you guys for the kind words... it’s rough hours some days but it’s great know there are people who appreciate it!
