Esteemed broomball commissioners Ty Kelly ’14 and Gareth Novak-Miller ’14 send one of the most minimal event post blurbs this website has gotten in a while pertaining to broomball, an absurd hockey-like sport that involves people in sneakers playing hockey on the ice rink every Sunday:
Hear ye, hear ye!
Come one, come all to the first meeting of Broomball 2014. Why? Because who doesn’t like falling down on ice.
Date: Sunday, January 26
Time: 8:45 PM
Place: Freeman Ice Rink
It’s that time of year again. Here’s the quick and dirty from Jordan Gratch ’13:

Date: Friday, April 15th

The last scheduled Broomball event of the year is going down tonight, 10-11:30pm on the rink at Freeman. First timers are welcome and as always participants must wear clean shoes with no salt on the soles. You know what happens when you put salt on ice.
Think broomball is weaksauce? Try this tidbit from the Wikipedia article on Broomball on for size:
“Recent research indicates that a sport known as knattleikr was played in Iceland in the 18th century that was similar to broomball. The sport was almost considered warfare, with the occasional death not uncommon, and games could involve whole villages and lasted up to fourteen days“
Convinced? Then go. Or join the US Broomball Association. Or get some obscene broomball equipment. Or something.
Date: Sunday, February 25th
Time: 10:00pm – 11:30pm
Location: Freeman Spurrier-Snyder Rink (no salt on shoes)
Broomball, the game made for gym class enthusiasts everywhere, is back.
It’s going down TONIGHT at the ice rink at Freeman. All you need to bring with your fine self are a pair of sneakers that (this is important) do not have salt from the roads on them as, obviously, salt would fuck up the ice and then there’d be hell to pay.
Date: TONIGHT, Sunday, January 28
Place: Ice Rink
