    It's going to be held in a club room inside the arena.

    So what is the deal with the screwed up schedule for Nationals this year? Usually the ladies skate on Thurs and Sat and the men on Fri and Sun. Not only that but the ladies don't have an off day in between the SP and LP and the men's SP group is being split into two groups? This schedule is all over the place.

    USFS usually publishes an extremely detailed color coded schedule which covers every event and every practice. Does anyone have a link to this?

    They had it previously posted on the official site before taking it down last week. This was the old link:

    Hopefully she can start to feel better soon. I think her withdrawal virtually guarantees Mariah the second Worlds spot.

    Entry list has updated on January 7th. Seems like Gracie will not withdraw, but Karen Chen is still on the list. Didn’t Karen withdraw last week? (It was updated Monday).

    I hope Bradie wins. I’m actually looking forward to seeing her programs and how they have progressed. She continues to work with Benoit throughout the season.

    She announced that she will withdraw, but maybe she hasn't done so officially yet. If she said she won't be there because she's still recovering from her injury, she won't participate.

    I got an email today from USFS regarding the Hall of Fame Reception, the Memorial Fund reception, and the FOFS brunch. I already know about the last one, but what about the first two? Anyone recommend or not recommend them?

    Has anyone seen any information for camera and/or bag rules? I have searched, but didn't find any current information.

    Maximum bag size is 14X14X6, no hard sided bags. There is a camera policy for the arena but it states it may vary by event. Sorry I can't directly link it because of the wonky way it is set up, but if you go to the arena website http://www.olympiaentertainment.com/...aesars-arena-2 and click on "A-Z guide" a book looking sort of thing will come up. Bring your magnifying glass if you have old eyes like me.

    Discounted tix available on Groupon. Some of the discounts are minimal....others are better. Discount for men's free was quite decent.

    Also if you have Ebates you can get 6% back, but they don't offer rebates on Ticketmaster anymore I don't think, if so it is 1%. I assume everyone uses Ebates already, but if you don't and want a referral PM me. Thanks much for this as I hadn't bought my junior tickets yet.

I emailed the director of the Friends of Figure Skating to ask if he could speak to the Events staff about changing this policy. If anyone would like to email the events coordinator to lend more voices to this complaint, the address is events@usfigureskating.org. The more the merrier!
    I took your advice today and sent a complaint to the address you linked. I shortly received a one sentence answer, that all event ticket holders would be admitted to all practice sessions!

    I hope that's true! I had gotten the same response the first time I emailed them, and then subsequently when I spoke to the director of FOFS he said we weren't going to be allowed into the practice rink at LCA. The marketing team claimed there weren't enough seats and there were no concessions (who cares?). I hope I won't be having an argument with USFS personnel at the door of the rink.

    I will bring a copy of the email that says attendance is permitted. It's not signed by an individual, just Events Department, USFS.

    I have used a DSLR the last 8 Nationals, with a 250mm lenses 6 inches long, and 95% of the time have had no problems. If you use an interchangeable lens longer than that, you may have problems. You are not to disturb people sitting next to you, so I often shoot at practices/warmups and just watch the actual competition.
