    Party at my house, Saturday night right after the ladies long! Everyone is invited!

    Gosh, the last time a big skating event was held at the Joe, there was a huge surge of interest afterward that buoyed the sport for a decade.

    Wow, I wonder if the USFSA would invite Czisny if she is ready to compete.

    Hm...yes! Maybe I will come for that reason alone.

    As for that huge surge of interest....that would require some knee whacking...question is who?

    Would love to go to Boston, but alas, it's not going to work with all the other stuff going on at the P. household. Same for Skate America...

    But I hope you get to go Doris!

    The arena has about 20000+ seats which is more than Staples Center where 09 Worlds was held.
    I would call it success if only the lower bowl of the arena is full.

    I think I'm gonna try to make it to this or skate canada. If this year is anything like last, though, trying to pick between them will be torture (though if this year is anything like last year I won't end up being able to go to either, so on second thought let's not root for that.

    Skate Canada has been selling seats for sometime, plus AFAIR, it is in St. John, New Brunswick

    There are better chances of good seats at Skate America, it looks like, with such a big arena.

    Thrilled for all of you who will be able to attend! Certainly a convenient venue for a number of the NA skaters & international skaters training in Michigan/Ontario.
