For OKSANA BAIUL Fans: Reviews of "Evening W/Champions" (10/10-11) & more...
From the sounds of things, Oksana is back & better than ever - the following are some reviews of the aforementioned show from around the net (enjoy):
Lastly, it appears that Oksana is going to be a guest star on SOI for the month of January......appearing on the west coast (yeah) at 11 shows, which all take place in WA, CA, OR and one in Lake Placid, NY (which will also be televised!)......here's the link: http://www.starsonice.com/tickets/default.asp
***Note: btw here's the link to Oksana's official site, which lists all the events she'll be appearing in (e.g. Ice Wars, Katarina Witt & Friends Special, Holiday Ice Dreams, et al) - http://www.oksanastyle.com/index.cfm...age=OksanaNews
Peace & Love, Nadine
"God gives many performers physical talent...He usually forgets to give them the soul of an artist...He gave Oksana everything." - Galina Zmievskaya
"She has such a range as a performer...SHE...could do anything...if she set her mind to it...there isn't a style that she could not handle" - Sandra Bezic
"And the incredible arms that she has on the ice...AMAZING to watch...so graceful." - Peter Carruthers
"She's got the strength of her skating in artistry...her approach to her skating is unique to everybody else...in the skating community. And young skaters out there...if you want to be special....follow your own path. She has." - Scott Hamilton
WELCOME BACK, MOULYA!!! WELCOME BACK!!!

So nice to read. IMO, Oksana should be the reigning Pro Ice Queen.

I hope the 'West Coast' includes a visit to Cowtown(okay,that's between the Rockies and the Prairies,wanna make a Federal case out of it?).
Incidently,is that drawing by Crystal?I haven't heard from her since baiul.org folded .If anyone can get a hold of her,have her PM me at email@example.com .
Great to hear from friends,in any case.
Long time, no see..........though I have to admit that I haven't been to Golden Skate for about 6 mos..........that's my time off from skating until it starts up again in Ocotober. Thus, I was surprised when I found out that it had moved. Luckily, I was able to re-register & begin again for the new season (btw love the set-up of the new board; no lie; props to Paula). (:^)
Yes, you guessed correctly my friend........this drawing was done by our famous Crystal.........remember when she sent out drawings to all of us Oksana Baiul Fans several years ago? OMG, can that lady draw - have both The Swan & The Feeling Begins framed & put in places of honor in my skating collection - btw did you know she is a professional artist (no lie); has her own gallery IIRC.
John, do you still keep in touch w/other Oksana Fans? If so, what are they all up to? My only contact w/them was via the internet, but have lost touch w/all of them since I decided a few yrs. ago to no longer participate in individual skater boards/fansites, et al. Since we were only a small handful to begin with, I have to admit that I miss seeing their individual & varied posts. Boy, we were all quite a bunch, weren't we?......so diverse......honestly loved it! lol! Anyhow, if you hear from Jennifer L. (btw sometimes see her post over on SkateFans & RSSIF), Steve W., Shannon B., Crystyal W., Dan B., Sasha H., Steve A., or Dina S. (sorry can't remember their usernames), please tell them I said "Hola" & send them my love (no lie). Also, please tell them I've always felt bad about not being able to get that Russian Orphan Project off the ground, which I was in charge of - there was just not enough of us members - but at least we tried (no lie). And I apolgize about it to you too, John.
***Note: btw, I sent a sympathy card to Sasha when her grandfather passed away, but it was returned back to me - wrong address? - hope she's doing well at University. Btw, IIRC, she was on her way to becoming a ballerina, right? She definitely had the skills, talent, resume, physique, experience & love of ballet that's for sure.***
Back to Oksana & her guest star appearance on Stars On Ice (yeah). I hope to bring my six yr. old baby niece to the one in Seattle (btw thanks so much, Moulya, for coming here in August). And I hope to see you there, John, b/c IIRC you came up here one year for Champions On Ice, correct?
Peace & Love, Nadine (:^)
P.S. Oops, another Oksana Fan that comes to mind is the first one I met when I originally came online in 1999 - can't recall his real name - but think his username was BigBo??? Anyhow, this young man was really nice to me & sent all of us Oksana Fans compilation tapes that year. I wish him well also; think he's at University now.

er....,that was my username on FSW,anyways,yes Nadine,I do keep in touch with SteveA,JenniferL,SashaH,Zhivago,Alexey Odzemok,Larry,JAnders,and a few others.The one you are thinking of was BrianFromTexas and,yes,I do keep in touch with him.Another is Scott Banker,you should drop a line at his message board at www.angelfire.com/ok5/oksanabaiul ,look who he credits as helping him with his site!I haven't heard from Dina since FSRForum went kaput for the second time,ouch!
No,I never went to Champions On Ice outside of Calgary,saw SOI in Toronto with Mom & a friend,saw COI in Red Deer,Alberta with my brother,but that's it.Met ScottH,JoseeC and BrianO at a fundraiser in Cowtown,also met Elvis,Kurt,LizM at other times.Hope SOI has a Canadian wing(as it has in the past).

Thanks John (btw holy smokes your original username is so you, lol )!
And thanks for doing that for me (aka sending them my love)........appreciate it mucho (no lie).......especially since I'm not one to keep in contact with anyone over the net. It's just not me, I stand alone, especially after that stalking incident in 1999. Now I dont' trust anyone, sad to say, nor do I really believe anyone unless I know them in person (btw that doesn't include all you Oksana Baiul Fans I mentioned up above; no lie).
Back on topic, yeah you're right, SOI does have a separate Canadian wing (likewise I hear they're going to Europe as well).....hope you get to see Oksana again......and all your other FAVS as well.
***Note: oops, really thought you came up to Seattle one year - sorry about that - thought you were the one that went to a local music store here & bought Oksana that gorgeous music box.***
Peace & Love & Sincerely, Nadine
P.S. Dina S., contacted me once last year on the new FSW before it went kaput - invited me to post on her new forum - sad to hear this one went kaput too (though I never did post).
AMERICA'S SWEETHEART - DUE OUT FEBRUARY 1ST - GOOOO CLO!!!
