    ((sigh)) Nostalgic for judging/skating days when I went at least once each summer (and often got to skate in the opening number).

    I love SV shows and may be there in August. It's a fantastic event for skaters and the audience, alike. If I were a skater, that would definitely be one event I would really try hard to get.

    Wow! Haven't heard any news on Kyoko in years! Had no idea that they were still skating together or that she was even involved with skating anymore.

    Isn't that when Champs Camp is? If so, that makes sense...

    Jeremy Barrett tweeted something recently about going up to Sun Valley - I wonder if he's working at the show.

    Are Leonova & Khvalko not skating together anymore? They used to be a pro pair.

    I miss the Sun Valley skating shows. I used to go to several when I lived in Idaho- years ago.

    Thanks for the video link!

    It's great to see so many skater articles in the Idaho Mountain Express! Here's the latest one profiling Alex & Maia Shibutani, with a bit about Adam Rippon, ahead of tomorrow night's show: http://www.mtexpress.com/index2.php?ID=2005142948
