    What's up with the new "Stars on Ice Fanclub?" Online store, priority seating, opportunity to meet skaters at Meet and Greet? Is this really true? Is it in every city? Anyone planning to join?

    My guess is that T&T will be pretty busy touring Japan, so I'd be surprised if they did CSOI. But I'd love to see Mervin in his home town...

    T/T appeared at the Anaheim SOI. Would they have a separate contract for CSOI?

    The fanclub has existed in the US for a while now and they're just expanding it into Canada. The main benefits are special advanced order forms where you can order great seats for the next year (typically on ice center ice.. I think there are also some lower bowl center ice) as well as a pre-show meet and greet at each show. It does not involved the whole cast - typically two skaters - and you don't know which ones in advance.. they seem to take turns doing it.

    Well I decided to give it a try. It costs $49.99 per person and I ordered for 2, hoping to surprise my friend. Of course, they confirmed a Meet and Greet for 1, not 2 and now she has to set up an account, then register all over again, therefore surprise impossible! And they'll probably make her pay again, if past experience is any indication. I always have difficulty with them! I get really good seats but the process is never smooth.

    Kurt's been out and about the last two days doing a slew of media for CSOI.

    Toronto Star article, in which he breaks the unwelcome (to me) news that he's taken himself out of the guys' number in Canada: Kurt Browning to choreograph Stars on Ice

    Daytime Toronto interview (8.5 minutes long): http://www.rogerstv.com/page.aspx?lid=237&rid=16&gid=95106

    He also appeared on CP24 Breakfast yesterday (the site puts up videos of some segments, hasn't put up the Kurt one yet), CFRA 580 in Ottawa this morning (again, site puts up mp3s but can't find his interview), the 103.5 QMFM Mike and Tara show in Vancouver this morning, and was just on CTV Morning Live in Vancouver.

    Also, here's an article from DurhamRegion.com on Virtue & Moir in CSOI: Virtue and Moir lead Stars on Ice into Oshawa

    Kurt on CTV Morning Live yesterday: http://www.ctvbc.ctv.ca/servlet/an/..._ice_120419/20120419/?hub=BritishColumbiaHome

    mp3 of Kurt on On Target Ottawa (580 CFRA) this morning: http://www.cfra.com/chum_audio/Kurt_Browning_Apr20.mp3

    In the latter, he mentions that he is taking Ilia's role in the guys' transitions in the first half. In the former, he mentions he's trying to get one of the two dance teams to do an overhead lift, if they can do it safely, since they don't have a pairs team this year.

    I always like seeing the differences between the Canadian and U.S. tours. I'm surprised Kurt is taking himself out of the guys number, so glad I was able to see it twice on the U.S. tour. Not sure if this was posted yet but, I found it on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVwYwN0olo4

    For anyone able to watch CTV Halifax, Shawn Sawyer is supposed to be on their "Live at Five" show tomorrow (26 April) - it airs from 5 to 6 p.m. ADT.

    I still hate that the Hamilton show is on a Thursday (one week from tomorrow!) but I'm starting to get excited about seeing what Kurt has up his sleeve for CSOI this year. It sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun! :)

    Nice for Mervin to be able to skate at home in Saskatchewan. (And for the fans too!)
