    2. Practice session is included for free?
    3. Can you select your seats? For individual tickets, it doesn't seem possible.
    4. When will the tickets be mailed? Are they e-tickets?
    5. No refunds, right?

    Thanks!
    1. I gave my card number over the phone.
    3. Yes. They told me that the judges will be seated at section 19-21 and the skaters' entrance to the rink is around section 12. I got my seats at 18 and 12.
    4. They said it will take about 2 weeks. I can choose either to have the tickets sent to me by mail or to pick them up at the venue.
    5. Nope.

    I'm in section 18, row 4 or 5...by the judge side.. Don't think I won't make loud comments directed at them for kicks.

    For those of you driving, if anyone is driving from MI by way of Canada to Lake Placid, I would like to carpool ( my car or yours, doesn't matter) just to save on some gas $ and not be bored! Long drive!

    Also, I have a room booked at the Summit Hotel, its very reasonable with an indoor pool/internet/free brkfst/fridge/2 double beds in room. My sister just canceled on me.... so if you are not crazy, I wouldn't mind sharing the room to save some dough, also. Its 0.6 miles away, I hope to walk or take that trolley I keep hearing about but can't find any info online.....

    The Summit Hotel is just around the corner from Main Street and probably about a 10-15 minute leisurely walk to the rink. The good news, if you do walk, you'll pass by a Starbucks .

    For the trolley, you can click on this link http://lakeplacid.com/flash/planyour...anyourtrip.htm and then you'll see another link for details about the Lake Placid XPRSS. It still has 2008 information, but I don't imagine much is going to change. I'll be in Lake Placid next month and I'll be sure to stop by and talk to them.

    Exclamation child in need!

    hello everyone, masters of skating event goings, my only experience would be 2009 worlds in LA since i live 30 mins away from staples ( i volunteered) so it was easy. i just graduated HS and now off to NYC for college....taking advantage of my future new home, i hope to go watch my team delobel and schoenfelder (finally, they ditched me at worlds) and if not belbin and agosto will be there! but anyways, besides amtrak/greyhound and adirondak pine hill buses, are there any other CHEAPER bus companies?

    once i get a bus, how long is the trip?....then id have to research motels.....as you can see im on a mega budget here.....or maybe i could hitch a ride? hahaha

    any info/help would be nice!

    thank you all.

    p.s. this trip has to happen for this might be my only chance to see D/S!!!!

    Adirondak Trailways has a bus that leaves from Albany daily at 1:50pm. The ride is about 4 hours to Lake Placid. It's $64 roundtrip.

    then id have to research motels.....as you can see im on a mega budget here.....
    This is a good site to search lodgings, http://lakeplacid.com/flash/wheretostay/z-search.htm. In town, the Northwoods Inn is nothing special, but very close to the rink, right on Main Street and you can get a room for around $112 per night. Also, Art Devlins is worth looking into. A very clean motel, about a 7 minute walk to the rink and usually one of the least expensive in the areas. I know there's more motels outside of town, but if you don't have a car, I would suggest calling them and making sure they are on the trolley route.

    Random irrelevant thought: If Shen and Zhao win this event, they'll become the only skaters (in any discipline) to have won every single grand prix event.

    ! That's a great trivia question. I would have guessed Yagudin.

    It's a little bit unfair because Yagudin wasn't around to skate for Cup of China, but he didn't do NHK either (according to wikipedia).

    The Zhangs HAVE won the every event but haven't won the final. Slutskaya is also a 5/6 + final winner (having not won Skate America, coincidentally).

    Check out Greyhound. I can get a bus from Boston for 60 bucks if I do it in advance of 21 days I believe and that is both ways. There doesn't seem to be a train that goes there though and I am not sure I want a 10 hour bus ride both ways.

    Well, it will be interesting to see who gets that third ladies' spot.

    I would say it must be either Becky or Alexe.

    For sure if either of them does well in her first event.

    Akexe Gilles has a tough road, though. She could easily come in last except for the French staters at Eric Bompard.

    It would be cool if Bebe Liang jumped into the mix.
