Where are your seats at TD Garden US Nats 2014?
Hi everyone! My mother and I decided to make the Boston Nationals a girls trip. This will be our first major, live skating event. My former coach, Lyndon Johnston, is a pairs coach now and we are excited to see him in action! It has been years since I skated but we still follow skating. And being an Olympic year, we thought this would be the perfect time! Being from Florida we are hoping for some cold weather too ;-)
Anyway, we stressed and spent hours looking over the seating chart. Where are your seats, what is your strategy?
We picked seats in section 20. Mid-price range seats. We figure if we were to be in a corner the kiss and cry would be a good corner to be in? It is also on the judges side if that makes a difference?
What are your thoughts on seat selection. If you cannot afford the 1K perfect seats, where would you pick?
Here is the seating chart:
My family and I are going to be in section 329. I would rather be in section 111 or right in front of section 111, but those seats are more expensive. When you're on the judges' side the skaters start and end their programs facing you. At some events there are a lot of TV cameras right behind the judges though, so those could obstruct your view.
I don't think that the 1K seats are perfect. I've been in the front row before (at Lake Placid) and I had to keep twisting my neck in order to see the skaters. That was uncomfortable. It's much better to sit somewhat further away from the ice so the entire performance area fits more easily in your field of vision.
Anyway, I can't wait until January!

Weekend ticket packages
In years past, many of the LOCs worked with USFS and Ticketmaster and offered weekend ticket packages for the Championship events, beginning on Friday night (but exclusive of the exhibition on Sunday). Read thru the Boston2014 website saw (if I saw this correctly) that ONLY single ticket option and ALL EVENT tickets options are available. Is this correct? :-(
Tripping on the Podium
Single ticket and all event are the only ticket options. Someone on FSU contacted the LOC and that was the information that they received. There are no plans to offer weekend packages.
