FSWer, is there any way you could attend the RISE movie showing (one night only) in your area on Thursday, February 17, 2011? It's a documentary film about the 1961 U.S. World Figure Skating team members that died in the plane crash. Check out the RISE movie thread for more info: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=75040

Here's the link to the official site of the movie (click on the black and white photos for more information about some of the 1961 skaters): http://www.rise1961.com/

The book "Frozen in Time" about the 1961 plane crash also has some nice photos of the skaters and coaches in it.

Are there any photos of the actual Nationals Competition though?
