    I am holding off buying a ticket to SOI Victoria. Last year there was a last minute Groupon for $25. It was in the nosebleed section but I was able to move down at intermission. Hoping that happens again this year.

    BTW, I saw SOI 2012 on TV recently. The mens' number with the spotlights was even better up close. And Andrew Poje in a tank top is eye candy of the first degree.

    Stars on Ice offering discount to CAA (Canadian Auto Association) members of 25% off tickets - nice perk to offset the taxes, handling fees etc.
    Check on the SOI website under tickets.

    For Ottawa, use code 290 under capitaltickets.ca - SOI webpage. Only available for on-line purchases.

    Guess that's what happens when the sport gets some good television coverage of worlds and the events are not broadcast at Midnight everynight. Glad to see that the skaters are getting the recognition they deserve!

    Now why isn't this a surprise.

    I was driving home from work today thinking, given her talent for performing, she would be a perfect participant for CSOI. :lol:

    I have tickets to the Vancouver show on May 10 -- Section 106, Row 3. My usual date isn't available. If someone out there wants the second one, PM me. No cost to you - tickets are from my boss as part of my Xmas present.

    My morning has just been made! I have on-ice tickets for Toronto and the thought of seeing Javier is too much!

    I wonder if we'll get any special guest skaters in London this year. Happy for those who are!

    Article about Patrick Chan and his SOI tour debut in Halifax this Friday (I didn't think it was necessary to create a separate thread for this): http://thechronicleherald.ca/artslife/1123832-chan-sets-sights-on-olympic-glory

    I'm impressed Patrick's going in a different direction. Will be interesting to see the new programs! Anyone else going to the Halifax show?

    If you have any questions about who's skating to what in the tour or anything like that, feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to answer. :)

    Wow, several group number changes from the US/Japan version! How did they manage that? I should definitely wait for the broadcast version, since I cannot go to Canada this year.
