    I know Skate America was in Lake Placid this past year and 2010 Nationals will take place in Greensboro, NC (yay!:cheer:), but it seems like so many of the events have been in the Pacific Northwest or on the west coast.

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I was just at a Blazers game the other night and we had a suite, I was thinking how awesome it would be to watch skating that way.

    Not that I could afford that, but it will be cool for someone. :)

    I thought I would not be able to attend another event without boarding a plane for a long time.

    Well, that was quick. Go USA! Can't wait!

    Interesting. Now if Skate Canada were in Victoria I would consider going to both.

    It's because I put up a poll yesterday in the Trash Can. They wanted to have "winner"

    Portland did a very good job IMHO for the Nationals a while back. Probably would be nice. If I am still commuting the West Coast for work I might give it a try!

    If Mr Lanie and I weren't going to Florida for a wedding a month earlier we'd totally be going. :drama: I have family in Portland.

    I'm not saying anything this time because I'm going to Nationals in Greensboro, NC. :saint:

    but I do think Skate Canada and the USFSA need to coordinate this east-west thing so one is east and one is west each year, in the future.

    Assuming it is at the Rose Garden, here's the arena map. Now, WHICH SIDE are the judges going to be on? I'm ready to buy tickets. :cheer2:

    Ooooh, Portland? I wonder if they'll have a tribute to Tonya Harding, food carts, lumberjacks, hippies/hipsters, grunge, riotgurl, and strip clubs in the kids' group numbers :cheer2:. I'd go just to see that!

    After finding Nationals competitions so LOOONG, I thought I had sworn off live skating events... But Portland is close and Grand Prix events don't last that long, right?? See y'all soon!! :D
