    Cercle de Patineurs Liegois (CPL Lieg) and Brussels (RBIHSC) was a website in Belgium that had lots of information on the 1975/1976 season when a group of LA area players, many noted elsewhere in my pages joined the CPL Liege team. Danny Corns brought this to my attention in Septemer 2001. There was a photo of them arriving in Belgium on the website.

    1970-71 Rules and By-laws for SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HOCKEY LEAGUE, Inc. November 20, 1970. Minimum age 22, forbidden to play in any other league, no checking towards boards or nets if player within 3 feet of same, 17 player rosters plus an alternate goalie, governing body by a voting member from each team.

    SUMMER HOCKEY BY THE SEA, June 13 through August 1971, Sundays 8 pm. A 9:30 pm game was for 'Top Los Angeles High School All-Stars'.

     July 21, 1971 one sheet of standings, rosters, points, won loss record of the two teams in Art Guiney's "Hockey by the Sea'.  I believe this sheet was printed prior to the game which I attended at the Culver City rink.  Admission was $1, juniors .50 and under 12 free. Jiggs McDonald was at the opening night game along with 300 'cash' customers.
