slightly OT here: any idea which cities are bidding for US Nationals 2013?
There's currently a thread in the 2011 US Nationals forum on this very topic but no official word at this time as to which cities are bidding: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=76503

how about baltimore and the 1st mariner arena as the venue? is that sufficient enough? Unfortunately, no, but I wish it was. The ice surface they put down for shows is definitely not NHL size. Perhaps there's a way to remove some seats and make it larger, I don't know. But the building itself is old and not in good condition, and I'm sure the USFSA TPTB would not be satisfied. There are plans to build a new arena, but that won't be completed for at least 5 years at the earliest.

Bumping this up to ask...Has the site for the GP/JGP final been determined?

It's clear the ISU wants to see Japan host the world championships if at all possible. But there are 6 possible sites offered by other federations for a postponed Worlds in April or May.

Maybe worlds should happen at one of the alternate sites (Lake Placid, Colorado Springs, Malmo, Russia, Canada or Italy) and Japan should get the 2011/2012 GP/JGP Final as in exchange.

OK, so have 2011 Worlds in Canada, and move the GP Final :) I can hear howling already...sigh. I don't think Quebec City could host worlds 6 weeks from now. But maybe I'm wrong.

If Labeaume (QC mayor) puts his mind to it, anything is possible!
