Re: Santa Monica, CA pick up games
They still play near the pier, but not as frequently as they used to. Check out the "Beach Roller Hockey" group on Facebook. Here's what I found on that page:
Name: Beach Roller Hockey
Type: Sports & Recreation - Recreational Sports
Description: FREE Pickup Hockey
Roller Hockey at the Beach in Santa Monica, California.
Inline ball hockey, light equipment, shin pads, elbow pads, gloves recommended. All players welcomed.
Strand St. and Ocean Ave in the beach parking lots, near Ocean Front Walk and Life Guard Shack #24.

If you go down there and play and have a great time, tell 'em Rich Graham sent you. If not, what was your question again?
