I was kinda hoping Hershey, PA. Just had Eastern Synchro Sectionals there between the Hersheypark Arena and the Giant Center, practice ice on several other local rinks. But I think it's a no go...for now. Maybe Skate America?

I heard Boston is a possibility.

to those who attended nationals this years, any rumours re: 2014 Nats?

Just rumors - Spokane, Detroit, Boston, Greensboro...

From a reliable source, the cities bidding are Boston, Denver, St. Paul and Greensboro.

St. Paul! :cheer: Or Denver!

I'm confused about Boston...I thought the USFS was trying to get away from huge cities? And I hope it's not Greensboro, since they've already hosted this quad (just like Spokane in '07 and '10).

Boston isn't that huge. The garden is only 10 minutes from the airport and Boston is a very walkable city, which makes it seem smaller than it is.
They usually put strong bids when Boston tries to organize events...and there is a lot of lobbying power to get things done with the usfsa. It has been too long since Boston hosted the event!

Well....as I was sitting in the San Jose airport( waiting for my flight that had been delayed 3 hours) a prominent coach told me that Boston got 2014 Nationals. I don't know where she got her information but it sounds good to me.:D

Boston also has a great Metro which makes getting around very easy. I attended Nationals there and found it preferable to Atlanta where the Novice events were held way out in the suburbs.

I've always wanted to visit Boston, so I'd be fine with nationals there too. :) It just seems like USFS is trending toward more mid-size cities and arenas lately.

I second peibeck and jkl. The schedule may still be spread over 2 weeks sometime at the beginning of January so as to make it NBC-friendly. USFS is apparently biased towards cities that have hosted nats before and therefore have the requisite knowledge and experienced volunteer base.

It will be interesting to see whether Boston or Denver can schedule a successful event over 2 weeks given that the main arenas in those cities host 2, not just 1, major league teams.

Ask her if she knows the powerball numbers, because the deadline for the cities to submit the bid packages isn't until tomorrow.

That's what I heard too.

I'd love for it to be in Boston! It's been forever since I've been there, and it'd be an easy drive too.

I wish we (the skating fans) could vote, and that it would actually have some kind of influence! If only lol.
