I vote for Portland.......Maine. :) We had two SAs back in the Eighties. We have an international Jetport, and TONS of restaurants and hotels right near the Civic Center. But I know that’s not gonna happen.
Boston would be good, too

Portland is absolutely wonderful and extremely traveler freindly. Lots to see outside of skating and absolutely wonderful food, including but not limited to lobster! :D

Me too..easy driving distance for me. Though I'm going to Skate Canada in Windsor; not sure if I can take that much time off.

I'd love to go to Portland, Maine. I have never been to Maine, and I have always wanted to go.

Do we know who made the bid? Since the weather has been so weird, I'd prefer warmer climate and avoid any location with potential snow storm/blizzard.

I haven't seen anything on actual bids - so far we are all just wishing and speculating.

Well, that's an easy drive from Minneapolis.

It's also a boring drive from Minneapolis.

....Orlando FL!!!!! :D Or would that be too big of a city?

....Orlando FL!!!!! :D Or would that be too big of a city?92 Nats were in Orlando, and from what I have read, I think it will be a long time before USFS puts another event there. But Tampa has a fairly large skating community (and is home to E/L and the Peterson/Johnston training group) so that might be an option.

As long as there are no wood chippers in the vicinity of the rink...:shuffle:

What happened at 92 Nats?

What happened at 92 Nats?I'm sure the FSUers who attended can offer more details than me, but I've heard there were a lot of organizational and financial problems. The host club was eventually thrown out of the USFSA.

Here is an article that might shed light on some of the challenges in Orlando:

Is it probable that we'll know 2014 Nationals location before we know this year's Skate America?

It is interesting to note that we know the bidders for '14 Nats but not for Skate America. Is that a bad sign?
