Since the U.S. hasn't gone more than 6 years without hosting Worlds in about 70 years, it would seem that 2015 is the USA's next "turn" if they want it.

Well, I think they think they "owe" Japan one so...I won't be surprised if the next world's awarded is to Japan since they had to give up 2011.

I thought Japan was already awarded (or promised?) Worlds in 2014?

The French Fed attempted to volunteer Skate Canada to trade 2013 Worlds for 2014 Worlds, so that Japan would not have to host post-Olympic Worlds. I suspect Japan will be given the option for 2015, with the US possibly offered the 2014 spot.

2014 worlds has been provisionally assigned to Japan with either Tokyo or Saitama as host.

Skate America in Boston would be so very convenient. Fingers are crossed. Actually, anywhere on the east coast, even Reading would do :P

They are totally going to put a competition in Boston right when everyone I know with a couch to sleep on has graduated and moved out of the city, right?

From a Skating Club of Boston 06/09/11 press release:

The Club is currently planning bids for additional national and international events with the TD Garden, including the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

TD Garden would be fantastic! The train from Portland comes into North Station...right downstairs! :D

do we have any updates when USFSA will make their decision? If SA comes to Boston I think the event will most likely be at Agganis Arena than TD Garden.

How about 2014 Nationals in DC and 2015 Worlds in Boston (since DC hosted Worlds in '03 and Boston Nationals in '01)? :)

I like this idea a lot! Michael Weiss could be the chair of a DC nationals.

I don't disagree with that. In 2001 they could fill the Garden easily, now I don't think they can. They might even try to put it in Worcester at the DCU Center, which is what they did for this year's Synchro Nationals.

I heard that Greensboro will submit a bid for 2014. I doubt they'll get the event as it is right before the Olympics and I'd assume Nationals would want a bigger venue.

If they get it.....:cheer2: I'll be there again!

I'd go to Greensboro again. Of course, the DC area would rock for me, but is there any indication that anyone from DC is bidding?

Still waiting for Salt Lake City. I know it won't ever happen, but I can hope...:shuffle:
