    Wow, Greensboro must have been super impressive to get it again (a la Spokane) in such a short time period! Greensboro is a nice city.

    It would be fun to to the twin cities as well...I interned in Minneapolis several summers ago while I was college.

    St. Paul was a great venue, IMO. I might have to do that one again.

    I'd love to do nationals, but it will all depend on whether Mr. P and I have some little ones hanging out by then....don't think I want to take a infant (or even a toddler) to U.S. Nationals.

    yeah that could be difficult, though I've seen folks with little ones make it work (how I don't know).

    It could be fun when they're 5 and reading and such. I love the idea of taking my future children to different places. Not sure I want to explain COP to a kid though.

    I don't know that you'd have to explain it

    We really enjoyed Greensboro. Having the practice rink in the same complex as the main rink was a real plus. Also our hotel & meals were reasonably priced (we didn't stay at the skater's hotel though).

    Yahoo!!!! I loved Greensboro and my hotel on the shuttle route, near restaurants and everything was reasonably priced. Nice arena and they are going to BURN all those crappy seats and get new ones!!!! And a practice rink on site. And this time the logo wont have the Wright Flyer flying backwards!!!!! I am glad to see that some nice city has seen how lucrative the nats can be and wants us back.....
    This time at St Paul, I am not driving from Spokane and getting my car broken into in the main arena parking lot (no security cameras) at 20 below and comuting to my relative's house. I am flying and dining...party time! Its a great pitched arena with a dynamite espresso stand.....Yeahaa!

    Just looked those cities up, but unfortunately too far for me to get to . Got the bright idea to drive down to the States for Skate America this year, since SC was on the other side of the country again, and surprisingly it worked out well.

    You drove to St. Paul from Spokane?! You crazy DOT guy...

    I had to drive from Kentucky to Washington in February when I moved for my job and let's just say....I would avoid a lot of those roads if I were to do it again. :P

    Greensboro is a lovely city--been to a conference there a few times. I just might have to figure out a way to attend....

    Yes, I know that now....I was crazy...I did save money by staying at relatives and commuting but it wasnt worth it. I drove to Colorado Springs for an event too and had lots of storms
    in Wyoming...next Colorado Springs event I flew! As much as I hate flying commercial aviation, its hard to beat most of the time.
