Here's the larger version of the Skate-To-Learn Cast on-ice (http://twitter.com/#!/TimDavid_Sk8/status/196712911417257984/photo/1/large).

Thanks for tweeting all these photos yesterday, Tim! :) I'll cross-post them in the Skate-To-Learn thread.

ETA: Thanks, chipso1 for your Coon Rapids show report and for cross-posting it in the US Ladies thread in the Trash Can.

:) Np ~ Highlights from what I can remember
~ Samantha opened up with a great 3Flip
~ The pairs drew a lot of oohs and ahhs from their lifts, headbangers, and throws
~ James S. great mature presence on the ice, wonderful music interpretation, landed 2axels and two triple jumps
~ Ksenia (1st program landed a 3T 2Ax, 2nd program just double jumps) dark brown/black hair. I almost didn't recognize her until she came close (I was volunteered - ice monitor for the event :) )

Meissner tweeted this photo of her with Armin Mahbanoozadeh and Wesley Campbell from yesterday's show in Amherst, Mass.: http://instagr.am/p/KAXNDqsRTk/

I came across Mahbanoozadeh's "Your Song" (new exhibition program for him, I believe): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWgeNUdhfe0

Thanks, Sylvia!
It's a pleasure to see Armin.

The 4th Annual Tribute to Life skating exhibition will take place at Newington Arena in Newington, CT on Saturday, August 11th. As soon as I have headliner details, I'll post here. This show benefits the Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital, and is done in memory of Dave Drake, who was an adult skater in CT. Last year the Kerrs were the headliners, and they brought the house down!

Actually, the headliners for Tribute to Life have not yet been announced. Petrenko was the headliner a few years back (apparently the Newington Arena needs to update the site!) I will post updated information here as soon as I have it. Thanks!
