    Is Pheonix really a possibility? I am planning on going to a US city in May and Pheonix was my #1 choice. But if SA is in Pheonix, maybe I'll go to Chicago instead...

    I was hoping Vegas. Is there anyway a US Nats or SA could go to Vegas?

    I don't see why not, esp. for SA. The weather is a lot like Phoenix (cool/pleasant and dry), lots of places to stay and eat. The only thing I don't know is if they have a large enough arena for the ice.

    Talking of Phoenix, I have not heard anything about bringing either SA or the US nationals to Phoenix. It's just my desire.

    Another selling point for Phoenix may be its proximity to one of the seven wonders in the world- the Grand Canyon National park. People can see the park and the skating in one trip.

    I'd be allowed to go to Detroit. I have relatives there. So I vote for it. But, in all seriousness, Phoenix is a really great option (and I have a friend who'll be gone at school, but maybe I could crash by her folks? That would be nice).

    It's a beautiful arena. I have visited it many times for the Coyotes (NHL) games, and once for COI. It's a bit away from the center of the metropolis, but skating fans don't care. Their food selection is rather limited (not many vegetarian choices) and there are fewer restaurants within walking distance. From that perspective, the US Airways center is far better. However, the Suns play there, so it won't work for the nationals, but could easily work for SA.

    Phoenix IS a beautiful area, plus it is easy to get to from wherever you are coming from (a big deal for me). Detroit would be wonderful too. So would Cincinnati. There are so many good choices; I hope they choose an area that is easy to reach.

    I vote for Portland.......Maine. We had two SAs back in the Eighties. We have an international Jetport, and TONS of restaurants and hotels right near the Civic Center. But I know that’s not gonna happen.
    Boston would be good, too

    Portland is absolutely wonderful and extremely traveler freindly. Lots to see outside of skating and absolutely wonderful food, including but not limited to lobster!

    Me too..easy driving distance for me. Though I'm going to Skate Canada in Windsor; not sure if I can take that much time off.

    I'd love to go to Portland, Maine. I have never been to Maine, and I have always wanted to go.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Do we know who made the bid? Since the weather has been so weird, I'd prefer warmer climate and avoid any location with potential snow storm/blizzard.

    I haven't seen anything on actual bids - so far we are all just wishing and speculating.

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    Well, that's an easy drive from Minneapolis.

    It's also a boring drive from Minneapolis.

    92 Nats were in Orlando, and from what I have read, I think it will be a long time before USFS puts another event there. But Tampa has a fairly large skating community (and is home to E/L and the Peterson/Johnston training group) so that might be an option.
