please note that the Ultra-Violet Mooses, blind hockey club in El Paso, Texas, we have been playing with a regulation puck, 1" hole bored in center, inserted 75decibel buzzer and battery, continuous sound, even when puck airborne or rolling, works entire game very well. In contact with a number of players from teams around Canada in various forums, I have yet to gain even a single acknowledgement that they have tried an electric sounding device in a regular puck.
But allow me to cast the gauntlet, fellahs, we play a truly blind hockey game here, that is, no sighted players. To be sure, our club has b1’s up through b5’s, but when we play, WE ALL PLAY BLIND!
This means that our B1’s are equal to the fully sighted guys! They actually contribute to the team’s success on BOTH defense and offense. They are not simple pylons hanging around the back circles til something runs into them.
I’ll be in contact soon, we are looking at challenging the Canadian teams to a truly blind game in the summer of 2014. Ultra-Violet Mooses, coming to a rink near you soon…or, hey, call me at 915-252-1678
We already have the commitment from the rink operator in Las Vegas to include a blind division of play at the 2014 USA nationals in October…
