    How did a Kim-less 4CC do in Korea, crowd wise?

    How about Four Continents in Alaska? Might solve some of the travel problems for the East Asian vs. North American skaters. Not so good for Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, though.

    And is it better to travel to there in November than February?

    Well, for the 2010 4CC, it was a rather small (from my perspective) arena, and it was pretty filled. However, for the 2008 4CC or the GPF other than the Senior Ladies' competition, it wasn't very filled. I remember Aunt Joyce talking about the 2009 Skate America competition and commenting on how he found it odd that many of the Yu Na fans, despite having tickets for all the different competitions, only attended the ladies competition and didn't go to the rest

    I don't think the ISU will ever consider moving Cup of China. China is now the second largest economy in the world, with the money to easily stage a competition like this. Strategically for the long term the ISU absolutely wants to be here. The crowds will come with time (or at least that's probably what the ISU is thinking, and if so I think they're correct).

    2010-11 Calendar

    Worlds in Japan

    GPF in China

    World Juniors in Korea

    4CC in Taiwan

    World team trophy in Japan

    It's pretty clear where the ISU is focusing on.

    Moving it to Italy sounds good to me.

    yep. With Kostner, Contesti, Faiella or Cappellini, people would come and cheer a lot. Btw Milano will host a JGP from next year.

    Contesti is like 27 or 28, so I assume he will be retiring soon, and so may Kostner.
