    Here is an e-mail I got from Faryn Driscoll at the LOC, in response to my inquiry:

    We do not have a final schedule, and nothing is being released to the public at this point, but the preliminary schedule that I saw indicates that the Men's Final and Skating Spectacular are both Sunday. Please don't count this as gospel but if you want to book your flight Monday is probably the safe bet.
    I haven't booked my flight yet, but I'll probably go with Monday. Even if it's just the ex on Sunday, it probably wouldn't end until late aftn. Factoring in time to pick up luggage at the hotel, get to the airport, etc, it's probably less stressful to just leave on Monday.

    Thanks for the info Debbie. I'm going to book my return flight for Monday. It would be awful if I was scheduled to return on Sunday and then the mens free skate ended up being on Sunday . I always buy cheap tickets so trying to reschedule would be costly.

    Curious when the Junior Short Dance and Junior Free Dance will be held so we know which Mini Package to get and when to plan hotels and flights.

    I am staying at the Fairfield too and plan to have my car with me. I'm estimating about a six hour drive from Atlanta.

    A question.

    I opened the link for the bus pass info, but couldn't find how to order the passes.

    Is there a form that I am missing?

    Thanks.

    You have to click where it says to download the form and then the form opens up in PDF. You print out the form, fill it out, and either fax or mail.

    ETA: Here is the direct link: http://www.northcarolina2011.com/doc...sOrderForm.pdf

    I emailed the LOC to ask when the schedule would be finalized, and Faryn said they expect to release the schedule this week.

    I was thinking about this last night... I am just crossing my fingers that the SkateRadio stuff is back. I LOVED that at Spokane! I would be willing to pay!

    Woohoo! I imagine the schedule will still be tentative, since they can't do the exact timing until they have final numbers after Sectionals, but we should at least know what events are on what days.

    Couldn't you do... "longest" case situations.

    That's what I would do, just assume that the max number from each sectional will advance, add in some "byes" for the Senior Level and plot from there.

    In the past, the exact schedule hasn't come out until late Nov (or later), after Sectionals. The schedule is done by the event referee, not the LOC. USFSA guidelines for referees and scheduling for qual events are pretty rigid. I think all the referee can do at this point is a tentative schedule just giving days, and maybe morning/aftn and event order - all subject to change, of course.

    But we should know how they're going to schedule the dance events, now that there are 2 phases instead of 3 in Jr and Sr. And whether the Senior Men's final will be Sat or Sun. I'm hoping they'll give an exact start time for the exhibition.

    Well... some of the schedule is done by NBC, ABC, ESPN or whomever USFSA found to broadcast...

    I keep forgetting there won't be a CD. That opens up the schedule on Wednesday. I hope they'll keep the OD on Thursday, so I won't have to worry about rushing from the airport to the arena on Wednesday.

    It's NBC, and yes, for televised events, the broadcast schedule does dictate those parts of the event schedule. It's all in the rulebook. Either way, the referee is likely not going to be able to give an exact schedule right now.

    As I expected... Men's will be ending fairly late Sunday if you want to fly out. Especially if you are flying out of Raleigh (where the cheaper flights tend to be)

    But this schedule is SO much nicer then that mess from last year If I can't get there early at least I won't miss any of the Senior Events.

    Wish they would've left the Junior Free Dance on Thursday. I hope it's late enough on Wednesday afternoon that my flight can get there in time. Bummed that I'm going to miss all of the Junior Men events.

    Wow, with my volunteer schedule this year, it doesn't look like I'll miss too much during this US Nats. Usually I miss all of the Novice events (and several practices) but with everything going back to a more normal schedule, and there only being two parts for Ice Dancing, I should be able to catch more of the senior practices and competition. I'm so excited to be going to the whole competition again! I loved being in Spokane last year but I hated having to leave halfway through everything and not seeing the whole competition. It's more fun to be there the whole time and really get the 'skating coma' that most fans usually get by the end of the week, LOL
