    According to SC's Facebook page, the location for next year's SCI will be announced on Sunday. They are posting clues as to where the event will be held:

    1) Hometown of a multiple Canadian champion (doesn't say male or female)
    2) An Annual General Meeting was held there within the past 10 years.

    I'm guessing Edmonton (and if it is, I'd better be seeing a whole lot of you there in MY stomping grounds!)...

    On Skatebuzz radio last night they mentioned an "intimate" venue....not sure either Edmonton or Winnipeg could be considered intimate......

    2nd clue: the AGM was held there in the last 10 years.

    PEI had it in 2011.

    No, Rob was from NS, and unfortunately he's been gone for more than 10 years.

    They didn't say the champion was in the past 10 years, they said the multi-time champion was from that location. The AGM was there in the past 10 years.

    Which champion was from Windsor?

    Yes, but Jen was coached by Callaghan and she lived in Windsor and trained in Detroit for a few years.

    I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

    I would love for it to be in Windsor! That's driving distance for me and I'm kind of kicking myself for not going to Mississauga this year. :(

    Has there ever been an AGM in Windsor?

    The cities I have (and I can't find them all) are Charlottetown, Halifax, Vancouver, Regina, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary. What are the missing 2?

    Windsor has the 2012 Synchro Canadians in February, which might be a run through for the LOC for Skate Canada. That's the usual process before an international competition.
    On the other hand I'd bet on Skate Canada being back in Mississauga next year.

    I was at an AGM in Windsor, but I can't remember what year it was. It's also been in Quebec City, the year after Windsor, I think (or before). It's also been in Edmonton too, but again, I can't remember the year.

    Gotta love how Windsor is described as being "western" Ontario. ;) What's that make Thunder Bay?

    Well, that will be another SC I won't be attending. The last time I flew to Windsor from Alberta for an AGM, the flight was ridiculous. When I factor in the cost of paying for a sub for a couple days, and everything else, it's just too expensive.

    I guess I need a different job -- or hope that SA is in the western part of the US next year.

    You have to pay for a sub if you take a day off? :wideeyes:

    What if you're sick or if there's a family emergency? Same thing?

    And is that true elsewhere in Canada and in other countries? (Does anyone here know?)

    We get sick days, and 2 days per year for family illness, but if we want to take personal days (max of 4 per year), we pay the cost of the sub (almost $200/day, including their benefits).

    Back to SC discussion...

    Yay Windsor!!! I know where I'm going next fall. ISU, please plan now to get all my fave skaters there so I get to see them all in one place (especially a certain pairs team who needs to have a GP on North America again sometime before Sochi, LOL). :p

    Too bad I no longer live in Ohio. That would have been a four hour drive for me.

    Even when flying on an Amerikan carrier to DTW (as opposed to flying AC to YQG)? Delta should have direct flights to DTW from YEG/YYC, or you can connect through ORD on American/United.
