Are they sold out? Thinking of going, since I'll be in Boston this week-end. Just need to convince the bf!

Not at all; at least, not based on their website

You can also try & buy discounted tickets at the door before the show (just bring a student id with you). Think they were $10 last year.

My student ID expired 10 years ago unfortunately...and I went to a rival school. :lol: but my bf is a student, so thanks for the tip.

I don't see the Protopopov on the list anymore. Is he ok?

I saw both of them at Lake Placid Labor Day Weekend for the Jr GP and both looked fab! They were in the stands watching a lot of the skating, and during some of the pairs, Oleg was in the K n C area watching.

Sorry for all the questions, does anyone know what the camera policy is likely to be? I generally take pictures with no flash with a point and shoot camera, so nothing too fancy and no video. Just wondering if I should expect to be able to do that or not.

Sounds like you should be fine. Last year's show policy states:
"3) Photographs - Flash photography is not permitted at the shows. Video recording is also not permitted at the shows."

I came across this in the FAQ: http://www.aneveningwithchampions.org/faqs.html
"When and where will the show be broadcast on television?

As of 2008, the show is no longer being broadcast on television, but it will be posted on IceNetwork."

Will this be a first? (EWC on-demand video being on IN)

Thanks! I haven't had problem with it anywhere else but I like to know in advance so that I don't break any rules. :lol:

We raffled off the tickets at GS, and eyria won!

And I'm so taken with the show, I'm going myself-what a wonderful bonus that Jason Brown will be skating!

Got a little sneak peek Friday night at Harvard and just had to say what an amazing group of young people (both on and off the ice). Should be a great show!

Intermission at Friday nights show. Pretty good sized crowd here. First half exhibitors did a wonderful job entertaining the audience. Jason's program just has to be seen :) . Looking forward to the second half and already have tickets to see the show again tomorrow!

I'm so jealous! (Especially since I'm sitting at dull old work right now!)

Did Jason do "Drop in the Ocean" or another number?

Glad you're enjoying it though :cool:

Just got home - great show. I didn't take notes.
So true - Jason was so fun. I saw him win the JGP last Dec, but did not stay for exhibition. It was cool to see another side of him, very fun, you could tell he was enjoying himself. Hammer Time!
Jeremy's program to Les Miz was beautiful, unfortunately he messed up some jumps that pulled me out of the moment. When skated cleanly it will be mesmerizing.
Other skaters:
Kimmie M - so nice to see her. Not a difficult program, but she has grown as a skater.
Christina Gao- lovely purple dress - lovely program
NavBoms - so excited to see them again. It just seems like they love being out on the ice and it shows.
Melanie and Fred - great to see them, fun program, a little slow from the last time I saw them, but pure entertainers, great pairs moves.
Paul had an iPad and announced that the Protopovs would not be there and he recorded the cheers for them. Not sure if he said why they were not there, could not always understand what he or Emily were saying.
Ryan Bradley - skated to Footloose - fun program, definitely one of the crowds favorites. Back flip of course.
Castelli and Schanpir (sp?) really lovely program, they have skated in this event for a few years now and they are really maturing and improving. Nice to see.
Lots of other skaters, but can't remember all their names right now. off to bed.
But if anyone can go on Sun - go - such a great show and a great cause.
