I didn't see a thread for this.

The Japan Skating Federation decided Friday to send world silver medalist Takahiko Kozuka and Akiko Suzuki to a charity ice show in Detroit on June 9 aimed at raising funds for relief efforts in earthquake-hit Japan.


I am so there. Anyone else?

Is the seating all bleachers? Don't know if I could do bleachers for an entire show. Thanks for info.

There is non-bleacher seating but you have to pay more for it.

Thanks for the info. I called and bought a ticket...had to settle for handicapped seating which will be fine. Can't do a lot of steps since I had knee surgery recently. I am just so excited! I usually prefer competitions to shows, but am really looking forward to this.

In case anyone else is attending, I will be on a folding chair in the handicapped section. Stop by and say hello :D

I'll be there on Thursday night.

Wish we could go to this one, but we live nowhere near Detroit.

Following the Ice Show, DSC is having a Meet the Skaters Party in their lounge.

I also bought a ticket for the "meet & greet" after the show. I expect to be completely tongue tied and in awe :rofl:. At Nationals the most I have ever been able to say to a skater is something like 'I loved your program'. It should be fun though and since its for a good cause I figured why not go.

Looking forward to reading impressions of and highlights from next week's show and Thursday's meet-and-greet! :) Who else is planning on attending and can report back here?

I'll be there doing backstage photos. I'll be there Thursday for sure.
