    Follow-up to chipso1's quoted post above... here's a local article about Gracie Gold's upcoming guest performance at the Coon Rapids, Minnesota ice show: http://abcnewspapers.com/2012/04/21/...t-ice-fantasy/
    Three community performances will take place: Friday, April 27, 7 p.m.; Saturday, April 28, 6:30 p.m.; and Sunday, April 29, 2 p.m.

    Gold will perform at the Saturday and Sunday shows. There will also be a 30-minute “meet and greet” event after the performances.

    She will not be able to perform at the Friday program due to prior commitments.
    ETA: Richard Dornbush was scheduled to debut his new short program at a local show in Ontario, California last night, but I saw his tweet too late to post about it here.

    Meissner tweeted this photo of her with Armin Mahbanoozadeh and Wesley Campbell from yesterday's show in Amherst, Mass.: http://instagr.am/p/KAXNDqsRTk/

    I came across Mahbanoozadeh's "Your Song" (new exhibition program for him, I believe): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWgeNUdhfe0

    Just a quick review from our show last night...

    For her first program, Gracie skated a new exhibition to Adele's "Chasing Pavements" and it was stunning. The program is a bit of a departure for her maturity-wise, but she handled it beautifully. Her soaring triple Lutz out of an ina bauer entry got some gasps and "oohs" from the crowd.

    Her second program was the same one she performed at Nationals and Jr. Worlds, only in a different (blue) dress. Again, her jumps were huge and she skated great.

    Seeing Gracie live makes one appreciate her even more. She is, without a doubt, the best female jumper in the world right now. The height and distance she covers is simply unmatched today. What's even more impressive in person, though, is the delay she gets in her jumps. They look so easy!

    Gracie's spins have also improved tenfold since Nationals. They looked the best I've ever seen them -- the speed, centering and positions were fab. I think her spins garnered as much applause as her jumps did.

    She is so impressive and really such a sweet kid. As a coach, I had the pleasure of meeting her, her sister Carly, and her mom, and they were all really nice and down to earth. Gracie seems so unaffected by her skating fame, and I think that is what will take her far in the sport. She was/is so inspiring for our young skaters!

    If you're in the Twin Cities today, we have another show with Gracie at the new Coon Rapids Ice Center at 2:00 PM.

    Np ~ Highlights from what I can remember
    ~ Samantha opened up with a great 3Flip
    ~ The pairs drew a lot of oohs and ahhs from their lifts, headbangers, and throws
    ~ James S. great mature presence on the ice, wonderful music interpretation, landed 2axels and two triple jumps
    ~ Ksenia (1st program landed a 3T 2Ax, 2nd program just double jumps) dark brown/black hair. I almost didn't recognize her until she came close (I was volunteered - ice monitor for the event )

    The 4th Annual Tribute to Life skating exhibition will take place at Newington Arena in Newington, CT on Saturday, August 11th. As soon as I have headliner details, I'll post here. This show benefits the Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital, and is done in memory of Dave Drake, who was an adult skater in CT. Last year the Kerrs were the headliners, and they brought the house down!
