Does anyone know why Elmira and Hobart are playing a game at a neutral site? (Skaneateles)

Did a search and it looks like they're there as part of a College Hockey Day for the Skaneateles Youth Hockey Association (http://syha.goalline.ca/news.php?news_id=1439167&lang=).

More to the event or they're playing at a neutral site for reasons beyond participating in this event?

We are doing it because Wesleyan was supposed to come out and play Elmira and Hobart, but bailed at the last minute. We scheduled this one to make up the game we each lost, as it was too late to schedule another opponent.

Thanks Don

We will be in Auburn for a tournament that day. Hoping we don't have a late game and we can swing over. While the "Y" isn't a typical college rink, it's an upgrade from the Cooler for sure. There are two ice rinks, a gymnasium, a pool, a skate shop, snack bar, and complete second story gym. With all that, and being a YMCA, parking can (and usually is) tight. When I was there a couple weeks ago they had signs up for the game as it looked like they were promoting it pretty hard. Single side seating, but much warmer than the Cooler and much brighter than the Domes. It's a Win - Win!! We were having fun with the rumor at the rink that Hobart wanted to go there to try think rink out so when they build the new rink they have a place to go that they knew....
