    What's the lowest level of play you've seen where the 'home' team had a goal horn?

    It'd seem that there would be some arbitrary level of amateur play where it's warranted, but one level down, it's classless and poor sportsmanship.

    One guy brought a fog horn onto the bench at a low level ball hockey game and insisted on blowing it every time we scored. He did it twice, then the referee decided he had enough and said he'd give us a penalty if we used it again.

    It didn't matter though, because we lost that game 5-2.

    After a skills clinic at my arena I sat and watched a mite game, along with music before the puck drop, when the home team scored, a "goal horn" would play through the PA system. I was pretty impressed.

    High school was the first time I played with all the bells and whistles (horns). You know, national anthem, music during stoppages and goal horn.

    I've always wanted to score and a goal horn go off after, though.

    At the Ice Den right?? Yea during Mini-mite - Bantam house games they play a general goal horn when either team scores. Gets the little kids all happy, but the older ones really don't give a damn lol.

    There's a Senior AA league running in Northern BC called the Central Interior Hockey League. Kitimat, Terrace, Prince Rupert, Smithers, Hazelton, Houston, Burns Lake and Williams Lake all have teams. I know Kitimat, at least, has a horn that goes off for goals.

    In house league here it happens only in champioship games. I've made it go off 4 times :) . When I used to play rep we didn't have but then again I quit when I was 12 because I couldn't stand the rep parents attitude with them thinking their kid is going to the majors. Well that and I hated my coaching because apparently I don't play a proper way or something when I was goalie.
