I voted for Moscow but my personal wish was not among the selections: Colorado Springs!

As long as it's not in October, I don't care where either.

I didn't vote for anything because the choices were too limited.

My vote would be almost anywhere that can get their act together before about mid June. If it can't get done by then, my vote would be cancel it. I know top skaters train year round, but they do need a period to lighten up between seasons, so it is just unconscionable to ask them to spend this summer peaking toward Worlds in October.

I didn't know Malmo was in the mix and don't know anything about that facility. I vote not Turin, as I understand it to be about as uncomfortable as an arena can get (well, as uncomfortable as a heated arena can get).

Apparently, USFS has also offered alternatives of Colorado Springs and Lake Placid in May. I don't know what time frames any of the alternate sites are suggesting.

Anywhere but russia...please.

2010 was finally a year I saw some fairness in the judging. No russians on top in pairs and dance (both at the Olympic and Worlds) and deservedly of course :saint: :encore:

Unfortunately, I know that next olympic will not be as fair, but a WC held in russia this year would mean russian federation playing their politic even faster to push their ''untalented'' skaters to the top. And we know who they are. I'm wondering why they want the worlds so much now that Worlds might be moved ?! and of course their incompetent and stupid friend speedy is always there to support them :rolleyes:

From what I've read, Russians do seem to be the most well prepared. Like the others said, please just make it happen as soon as possible, I don't really care where.

You mean the option "My backyard" isn't even listed??? :eek: ;)

I second this option.

aussieSKATES was all set to report from the Yoyogi Stadium from Monday.

The idea of holding the event in Lausanne, Torino or Moscow won't make it possible for us to attend. The airfare alone is more than our current budget will allow. Return airfares from Melbourne to Narita are AUD 900. Return airfares from Melbourne to the other proposed cities are in the AUD 2500 - 3000 bracket.

There is no important where 2011 Worlds will be held. The most important thing for me, is real possibility to be held in those contries as listed. Anyway I voted to Moscow. I think Russia has real potential.

My choice would be Victoria, B.C. or Colorado Springs, Co.

My choice would be Victoria, B.C. or Colorado Springs, Co.

Having just experienced Junior Nats/Canadians, I think Victoria would be a great choice! Great hotels, great restaurants (and lots of them), lots to do and see, really friendly people, and rinks are in good shape. (The practise rink was pretty dumpy, but it would work.) Given how nice the weather was in January, I have to think the weather would be fabulous in April or May. And its only a ferry ride or short flight to Vancouver. The little airport might be a little busy, but that's only a small incovenience under the circumstances.

I mean, it was offering itself on Saturday.

An outdoor frozen pond - of course, at the risk of this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1aeaUp24Lk&feature=related).

hey guys,
since we have now this situation when nothing is certain, we don't know the fate of the 2011 Worlds yet and still have to hungrily wait for any update on this, I thought we could use some figure skating fun :)

I've created this 30 day figure skating challenge on FB - if you know the 30 day song challenge, this is basically the same thing, just about our sport. Feel free to join me in this, share some skating links on facebook and maybe it will brighten the upcoming month at least a little bit ;)

Indianapolis, IN !!!!


:respec: THIS!!!

I know it won't happen, but we could use Conseco and kick out the Pacers. They aren't doing anything anyway.... :-)

I would definitely volunteer - 20 minutes from home.
