Skate Canada 2008 tickets on sale
It is going to be held in Ottawa. If you guys want to crash in at my little cottage, which is about 20 minutes drive from the arena, you are more than welcome to.
Actually, they've been on sale since November sometime. I've already bought my All Event ticket package. Maybe this is for single event tickets?
I'm just thrilled to death that this year, Skate Canada happens to take place on my birthday. Spending my birthday watching something I adore happening live? Can't get much better than that!!
I got my tickets in November also. Thanks for the generous offer, fumie. My Mum and I will be staying with friends during the event.
Off topic, does anyone know when the host for the GPF will be announced?
I'm sorry this is also slightly off topic, but does anyone know anything about tickets for the Four Continents competition in Vancouver next year? I want to go.
fumie fumie - Why not suggest a meeting in a nearbye pub or restaurant after one of the events?
PaulE, last time the 4CCs were held in Canada, the tickets did not go on sale until a few months before the event. The Skate Canada website will probably announce when the tickets will go on sale. You could also check the Ticketmaster wesbite. They sell the tickets for most skating events.
Good Idea! Now I need to spec out restaurants or pubs nearby. I never go near Scotia Place. It is usually where Senators games are held and I want no part of the Senators ( The traffic from downtown Ottawa to Scotia Bank place goes crazy at the nights of the games). I will get back to you guys, once I pick a spot for our little meet-up then. Worst comes worst, we can all go to Timmies!

Moving up the testing structure
Skate Canada International Tickets
I was wondering whether someone could answer this question of mine. It seems like the website fot buying the tickets is offering me the "best seating available", but I'm getting tickets along the width of the arena. While I'd prefer tickets on the length, it seems like the only ones I can get are 5-6 rows higher up. Is this worth it, or will I see much from the end?

Reason: never mind the previous

I'd get the tickets that you can. Sitting on the end vs. the side just changes the view, depending on your preference, neither is better or worse just different. I like sitting at a corner the best, but that's just me.

I agree with Silverblades, I would get those tickets. It's the 5-6 rows up that's the deal. Personally, I like the middle and higher up.

I ordered Skate Canada tickets last fall. I was given a confirmation number. I have had no further contact from Skate Canada. The tickets were supposed to be mailed out in the spring and I have not received mine.
Has anyone else who ordered tickets last fall received theirs? I am getting concerned that they be lost in the mail.

I ordered my tickets this spring and they said they'd be mailed by Sept. so that might be when yours will come as well. If you have to conformation #, call the provider who sold you the tickets and ask for information. They should be able to tell you.
