I am going to Nationals in Portland in January. I have never been to a live competion before, I'm very excited. I am looking for some advise from people who have attented Nationals before. What kind of things should I pack? Is the rink cold, especially during practices? When is the best time to try to meet the skaters, or get autographs? What is the best way to share results and my thoughts and feelings with people on the forums? I'm so nervous and excited and am counting the days already.
Thanks in advance for the advise,
