    Thanks for posting. I'm really excited to see Nationals in IL. Now I just have to figure out how to get my Bronze test passed in time, with new blades my backspin is gone, and my loop was iffy to begin with.

    (I will probably drive out for the a day anyway...)

    Interesting choices.

    I'm hoping ONE day, we can have Adult Nationals on the West Coast. We have so many great places, but I wonder how many clubs are willing to host that type of event.

    The way I understand it is that there are not enough two to three rink facilities with affordable enough ice on the west coast to make hosting viable. I think the closest you will get is places like Salt Lake City, which did a fantastic job with the 2011 AN.

    I'm thrilled too since with two little ones under the age of 4, It's easy travel to Sectionals and minimal travel for Nationals. Makes my life easier.

    Now I'm just waiting for the inevitable phone call about my volunteering for a committee of some sort . . .

    Tell them you'd be happy to be the "interview famous people" committee.

    What? The Michigan snow belt in March isn't your favorite vacation spot?

    Every time there's been AN in Chicago it's snowed too!

    I may do Easterns, as it's so close to me, IF I will actually be in shape to compete in something by then. No matter what, I will definitely go to watch. But no AN for me, and I probably won't ever go, unless it's within driving distance. I'm just not competitive in Bronze, and my days of learning new jumps and spins are probably over. If I compete at Easterns, it will be in something like CM and/or maybe Interp.

    Debbie, that's one of the reasons I started solo dance (the competitive at freestyle issue). It's pretty fun, too.

    I remember way back when, we had Mids in Cleveland and it snowed. It seemed like it always snowed for Mids. I made a vow back then that I'd never skate Mids again unless it was in a warm climate. Then Indy had to go and host and do a fantastic job and I was hooked all over again. Bring on the snow!!

    I am happy about the timing of the events, it seems mids will never be held in the SW region, so far once. Chicago did a great job last time so I imagine it will be a good event again, the weather is the weather. Be prepared for anything in Chicago...spring is like that everywhere.
