I took in a second round playoff game at the Memorial Gardens in North Bay. The atmosphere was electric. These people care about their "troops"! The Memorial Gardens for all its upgrades, is still far behind any other OHL building I've attended a game. The parking is miserable, the concessions and souvenir stands need an upgrade. The washrooms are only on one side of the rink. Don't get me wrong, there is a certain amount of character in the building that makes it endearing. However, the creature comforts are not there in North Bay. That is probably just fine for North Bayers, but you do notice it from an outsider. The sight lines are great from wherever you have a seat. Between the atmosphere and the people, it's tough not to love hockey at the grassroots level in Canada. It's still a business, but not quite big business yet. I would recommend a visit to the Memorial Gardens to see your team play a game in North Bay. You will not be disappointed, unless your team loses (mine did 1-0!)!

Good day at the hockey game!! The Battalion won. It was a gritty game and they had some entertainment going on in between periods. It was worth it.
