    Apparently, USFSA or the organizing committee wants lots of people to go. This is the second time that they've advertised in LivingSocial for ticket specials for the mens and womens free skate and skating spectacular.

    Colo Spgs is one of my favorite skating venues as well, which is one reason why I opted to go to 4 Continents instead of Nationals this year. Everything is within walking distance. Plus this event covers only 3-4 days instead of 7-8 days and I get to see international skaters as well.
    Many skaters complain about the high altitude, so not all are happy to compete there. The arena has a seating area of 5,000 which is a little small for Nationals, but perfect for Skate America, which has been held there before, and it has the advantage of another rink next door. Colo Spgs is also in the middle of the country rather than at the extreme east or west coast and is relatively easy to get to. Looking forward to next week.

    I think Chapis needs to find someone who can negotiate the website and have the tickets held at "Will CAll". Another option would be to just buy them on site. Trust me. After attending nationals, skate americas,
    and the last Four continents, seats will not be a problem. Here is alittle story. Last 4 Conts at COS in 2007 after Nats in my home town, I decided to go. I called one week before the competition and got front row seats.
    Only I had to change seats every competition....big deal....At nats this year, you could have sat about anywhere you liked for all but two competitions.....for ladies long, you might have had to sit four to eight rows back.
    I checked the Omaha website after a "flurry" of ticket buying at this years Nats....pleanty of front row seats still available....will the other fan who goes to competitions please turn out the lights afterwords? Thanks....
