So is Zimmerman not really coaching anymore? Aside from Denney/Barrett, didn't he have a few other elite-ish teams?

I could not be more happy that Ryan Bradley has made the cast. And for Ina and Zimmerman being back!!!

It's about time they put Ryan in... Scott's been saying for years he is a "showman" Time to put thier money where thier mouth was :)

That's just SAD! IF that's all they can do it may be time to close the doors :(

So US SOI tours only 10 places this time??Which begs the question of what's the point? Are they still doing a tour in Japan in January?

No wonder Evan and B/A either declined or were passed up in favor of less expensive replacements - with only 10 stops, presumably there's not a lot of money available to pay top stars. And given the high fixed costs of running a tour like this, you have to wonder how they're going to make a profit at all with that few shows.

Perhaps they won't do a tour in 2013 and will just do one post-Olys.

Well, I won't be going. The closest stop to me is Hershey, and I'm not going to shell out nearly $90 for a ticket to drive 2 hours and not see half the skaters that I would have wanted to see.

I'm going to see the Kerrs. Tickets aren't so bad when you pick 'em up day of at the arena. I've never spent more than $30 and I've always gotten great seats.

:eek: They've always had 4 stops (5 at one time) in Florida and now nothing.

Wow, wasn't so long ago that they did what, 30-40 shows a season? And the big tv specials around Christmas time?

I remember the days when FSUers would go to rehearsals in Lake Placid and report in, and then so many of us would be on the edge of our seats waiting for the reviews of the first show in November. Then, even though it was the same cast, people would post reviews from many of the tour stops as well.

Coincidentally, I got a letter from IMG today that says the SOI does not come back to my city so they returned my order form.

They also ask me if I want to re-order a ticket for the show in any of the cities they will visit, and yes, they only list 10 cities - the same ones on their website.

Sigh...
:(

Only TEN shows?? Is there any chance they will be adding a few more in the coming months or is this it?

I believe this is it - at the end of the list they show the "teaser" for the Canadian tour.

Making a day-trip to the first show in late November in Lake Placid has been quite do-able from Ottawa for many years; making the same trip for a show at the end of December is less appealing. Especially buying tickets in advance and gambling on the weather...

It's the economy folks....we haven't had a show in the Norfolk VA market in years!!

Looking at the SOI website, Smucker's is no longer the title sponsor of the tour. That's probably why there are only 10 cities on the schedule this year--without a title sponsor, they can't afford any more than that.

They need to lower their prices for tickets. Who can take a family at $90 a ticket?:eek:

Go back to more reasonable prices and bring back the fans.

I don't really see any point of putting on this show for only 10 cities.

Probably why no Tanith/Ben or Evan, too?? How sad... I hope they amp the show up by showtime!
