    Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait! I can't believe I'm a 37 yr old adult and still get so giddy with the start of every new season. I am SO thankful for everyone in this forum who give me a place to share my thoughts.

    Looking forward to seeing Ilia Klimkin and Trifun. Of course, hoping the American boys skate well.

    Will miss Plush and Yags, and Davydad(sp?). Will he be in the Prix?

    Noted, there are no Canadians boys in SkateAmerica! Que paso?

    For the Ladies, looking forward to seeing Pokio, Kostner and Maniachenko.

    Wondering if Nelidina got an ounce of artistry? The USA contingent of Ladies looks super.

    QUESTION; Will this event sell out? without MK?

    Doris - How much of SA will be shown on TV? I think the best bet would be to go to Reading. There are a number of entries I would like to see.

    I recall seeing a lot of empty seats at the previous Skate America competitions. Sometimes it was almost embarrassing - there were far more empty seats than filled seats.

    Perhaps the ticket price has something to do with me. Obviously, the event needs to pay for itself, if possible, so a certain amount of revenue must be raised. This is a wonderful event, of course, but the field isn't nearly as deep as it is for Worlds. Many of the world's best skaters are not competting at SA. That being the case, I can't blame people for electing to watch the competition at home (and tape it!).

    Empty seats seem strange to me at GP events since they are relatively cost effective. I'm on a tight budget but was able to squeeze out the all event ticket. Reading is a nice town, BTW. John Updike wrote about it in his "Rabbit" series. Be sure to take Penn Street across the river and visit the VF Outlets. Lee Jeans, racks and racks of them, at rock bottom prices.

    I'm pretty sure I can't go, but wish I could to see Trifun. I hope he skates well.
