    So, who is going?

    I am thinking of driving down on Friday night and seeing at least 3 days worth of performances. I wish I could do the whole thing but after Nationals and nearly 3 weeks in Europe, I have hardly any vacation days left!!!

    I'm going! I'm so excited, we have Gold Level all event passes! I can't wait. October is so far away!

    Alright, I'm done being 14. I don't know how great our seats are going to be because we just bought them yesturday, but they are gold level so they can't be that bad. I'm coming home from school for Thursday (I hope), Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I'll be staying with my mother and driving the 1/2 hour into Hartford each day. The only thing I can't work out is how to see FAME! at my theatre that weekend or if I will have to work it in for the weekend before.

    Yana - What do you mean by driving down. Wouldn't you have to drive east from St. Louis? (Hope you had a great time in europe.)

    Theatre girl. I'll be there too, but we don't know who will be skating yet. I hope we get a few top level. You can try Fame after the Exhibitions on sunday. Just a suggestion.

    Hi Joe,

    I live in upstate NY, so it would be going east on the I-90 and then driving south on I-91. I haven't lived in STL in many years unfortunately. But I visit at least twice a year!

    Europe was fabulous! We went to Scotland, France and Switzerland

    Well, the show is at 7:30 on Friday and 2:00 on Saturday and Saturday. However, the schedual from last year seems to indicate that the free dance will be sunday at 2:00. I'm really not an ice dance fan so it won't kill me to miss this and it will save me a train ride there and back, so if the schedual works out I will probably do that. Thanks for the sugestion!

    Does anyone have any idea when we will find out where our seats are? I know that they were delaying seating assignments until ESPN looked at the space, but I didn't hear when they are supposed to send us our tickets.

    I'm definitely going to be there. We have Gold Level all-event passes as well. From past Skate America ticket buying experience, they generally mail out the actual tickets in late July or August sometime.

    Can't wait to see who is assigned to the event!

    Will be there, meeting up with the annual group of friends that gets together each Skate America. I echo wanting to know WHO is going to be there!! (And Skate Canada as well, but that's off-topic).

    TheaterGirl, keep in mind that the gala is on Sunday also.

    Yeah, and the Free Dance isn't. I don't know why I wrote Sunday. I really did mean Saturday. Thanks for alerting me to that.

    While I'm here, I'd like to see (this being a very extreame wish list.)

    Men:
    Evan Lysacek
    Scott Smith
    Parker Pennington (I don't have any particular feelings on the last US man, really. I'm pretty sure it won't be Weir, but I wouldn't mind seeing an upcoming Junior.)
    Jeff Buttle
    Changjian Li
    Daisuke Takahashi

    Ladies:
    Kimmie Meissner
    Bebe Liang
    Katy Taylor
    Yukari Nakano or Mao Asada
    Elene Gedevanishvili
    Yu Na Kim

    Pairs:
    Inoue and Baldwin
    Nam and Leftheris
    Vlassov and Meekins
    Pang and Tong
    Dube and Davidson
    Shen and Zhao

    ETA: I fixed the Saturday/Sunday thing on my last post so now it makes sense.

    I am going to be there. As for which skaters I wish to see, well I couldn't echo enough to how much I would love to see Johnny Weir. I wish that he'd actually go to Skate America. I wouldn't go as far to call him a traitor for not competing on his home ice, as in America during the Grand Prix series. Here's to hoping that he wasn't the one that elected not to skate here. He has as much, if not more fans here than anywhere. Why can't he please us? Anyway, enough of this silly rant.

    Johnny is a Russopile. Nothing wrong with that. You will definitely catch him in Spokane. In st. Petersburg and in that lovely island Victoria. It's possible he may show up in Tokyo.

    I'm planning on going too, although I haven't bought my tickets yet. I'm waiting for them to go on sale with Ticketmaster. I got sick of sending my money in a year in advance and having no input as to where they might be, only to get worse seats than folks who bought them a month or two ahead of time.
    Of course, who knows when Ticketmaster will start selling them. The website says late June, but I could swear it's mid July already!
