    This could mean a good crowd for a GS meetup!

    For sure! And maybe a bit of good natured rehashing of the events over any one of the superb dinners on offer in Chicago-land. Gawd, I can't keep food out of anything

    Haha, no worries. The highlights of my trip to Nationals was basically meeting Jason Brown and eating. So yeah, priorities!

    That said, I don't know much about the culinary delights in the suburbs......

    ETA: LOL from Phil Hersh (who is in Chicago):

    Saying 2014 Skate America will be in Chicago is a stretch. You need passport to go from Chicago to Hoffman Estates. Different county.

    Penciling out logistics. So nice that they announced it early!

    I'm sure you have seen it but these were tweets from USFS and Jason Brown today.

    What figure skaters do you hope to see at Skate America? There will be several #Sochi2014 stars on hand!

    Yes, that would be a valuable selling point!

    Also the fact that we can get a direct flight from Providence

    No, not even by Metra. You will definitely need a car for this one. I would recommend if you like to shop staying in Schaumburg (hello, Woodfield!). Sears Center IS along 90

    Tell me what kind of food you like and I can provide a (very extensive) list of available food opportunities.

    Does anyone know generally how much tickets to these events go for. I have never been to a Grand Prix competition and would like to get an idea of just how many pennies I need to save ;-) Also, has anyone heard when tickets go on sale?

    I believe that's where the IKEA is, right? Haha that is my point of reference to that place and the only time I ever was in Schaumburg. I believe that was back in the early 2000s.

    That is a long wait. They usually announce the lineups the first week of June.

    I'm sure Phil has already applied for his passport! He lives in Evanston, I believe, not Chicago.

    You're right. Also ISU Congress is in Dublin on June 9-13, so I'm not sure why they would delay it until June 27?
