does anyone shoot ice hockey?

I am looking for any tips for shooting hockey games with my GL2.
Settings,lense,filters........I have been shooting hockey for about 6 years,so I do have some experince.I have only been using the GL2 for about 4 months of that.I only use the optical which looks good.I do get pixels when I shoot from far up in thestands.Would a teleconverter be good for this?Where and how much?Also when I am up in the stands ,I am close to the lights.I think this maybe causing some hot spots in my video at certain ends of the rink.It comes and goes.All the feed back would be good.
Thanks

set to manual?

do you have it set to manual exposure and have it bumped up 6dB? I'd start there and keep as fast a shutter speed as you can. It depends on the amount of light you have, of course. I'd also play a lot with the white balance and see what works best, trying some homemade warm cards if necessary.

I don't shoot hockey, but I shoot martial artists swinging sticks.
To produce stills (frame grabs) without much motion blur and sharper slow motion DVD playback, I tried increasing the shutter speed but was left with somewhat "strobey" video. One fellow mentioned my taping under flourescent lighting, but I think the issue is really about seeing discrete motion.

I am not familiar with warming cards, or at least the term.Can someone explain?Thanks for the feedback,keep it coming,hockey season is about 6 months total,so I need to act quickly.I did purchase a good quality tripod and head finally.That will definately help the panning part.I am still waiting on feedback on a teleconverter lense?

Although I have not used the warming cards, basically, they're colored cards used during your white balance. The warming cards look slightly blue, so when you white balance, you get a complementary golden emphasis.

Examples can be found on this web site.

You don't have to buy these cards unless you appreciate a convenient and durable package. You can print out your own or white balance to the Roscoe swatchbook, which can be obtained free from http://www.rosco-ca.com/ .

Hey Glints,

Could you provide a bit more direction to this swatchbook, I searched the site and get various ones they will mail out, but I didn't see one for download. Thanks

Cheers,
Huey

From menu on left side, click on Products
Then, Film/Video Products
Then, Cinegel
At bottom of page (all the way!), click on
"Would you like to receive our Cinegel Swatchbook?"
Follow directions.

You can receive other swatchbooks, such as

procedure for other products.

Thanks Gints,

I misread you previous post and thought you could download the swatchbook and print it out. Now I got it, you can print off your own cards or get them to send you their swatchbook.

Just filled out the stuff to get one, thanks again.

Cheers,
Huey
