    :) 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 :) )

    Do you mind cross-posting in the separate Skate-To-Learn thread that was started by the show's organizers? Thanks, Tim! http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3559273

    Alex and Maia Shibutani and Adam Rippon documented their experience at "Showtime on Ice" in Centennial, Colorado via Twitter this past weekend with photos and even a couple of videos! ;)

    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!

    Lovely pictures! You always get some great shots.

    Also, since no one seems to recall, do you know or remember what P/I's program was? I know the exhibitions of the other major skaters there, but that info seems to be eluding everyone!
