Went well. Good, fast, wide open hockey. My kid is really looking forward to beer league starting up.

What rookie camps had actual scouts making notes? And which ones did not?

Very few as these camps are nothing more than cash grabs. Some players may get noticed by on ice staff, but offers will include nothing more than an invite to their main camps.

Something like 20-25K cash, when all the costs are in, ice refs etc...

There are no refs at rookie camp. Most ice is $250 per hour so if the camp is 5 - 1.5 hour skates ... that is 7.5 hours X $250 equals $1875 .... that would accomodate 2 squads/teams if you had enough players for another 2 teams then the cost would double (and so would the income) that equals $3750 and so on... how did you get from there to 25K ???

On the income side of the equation .. if you pay $250 each and there are 15 kids per team times 2 teams on the ice at one time you get 30 times $250 so that equals $7500. Take out the $1875 and you are left with $5625 profit for every 2 teams you put on the ice.

I don't know why they don't start having these things every weekend... basturds

Nothings free, unless previously expressed as such, main camps cost money.

junior camps are a great way too keep the kids in shape and keep playing some hockey and there's nothing wrong with that.
